Sweeping Songs

I recently moved from Dallas, Texas to Orlando, Florida for school. When I left my friends and family I wanted to leave them with something that reminded them of me so I made this mix for them. It's a mixture of songs that I love for nostalgia's sake to those that had lyrics that fit the way I was feeling to songs I think are sweeping and beautiful. This is a mix that would remind anyone who knows me of the times we shared.
1Angels and Airwaves
Et Ducit Mundum Per Luce

I wanted an intro song that would set the tone and the pace of the album and I think it does it nicely. Plus it?s beautiful and dramatic.
2Dredg
Bug Eyes

Even though the song is about death technically. It?s more about making a journey and having to leave your loved ones behind.
3U2
City of Blinding Lights

This is one of my favorite songs of all time. This song was one of the reasons I fell in love with U2. Most of my friends were around during that period in my life and they were tortured by me playing it over and over again. It?s been several years since then so, hopefully, they?ll forgive me for including it here.
4Coldplay
Every Teardrop is a Waterfall

This song is so uplifting and the bridge says spot on how I feel when I listen to my favorite music. I don?t want people to be sad when I?m gone. I want people to turn this album up if they ever are missing me and they can smile.
5Angels and Airwaves
The Adventure

This song is super dramatic and explains the ?adventure? I?m going on by continuing this new chapter in my life.
6Wakey!Wakey!
Almost Everything

The vocal performance on this song is so incredible! This song is my hug of reassurance to my friends.
7U2
Bad

This is the other reason I fell in love with U2. I?ve heard this song a million times but I still get chills every time Bono screams, ?I?m wide awake.? It?s SO powerful!
830 Seconds to Mars
The Kill

A dramatic song that I love. I wanted to include 30 Seconds to Mars somewhere in the mix but almost all of their good songs are 6 minutes or more. This one was a reasonable time (I had to fit this on a CD) and I love the chorus on it.
9Coldplay
Violet Hill

This has a great vocal performance. I love the image I get in my head when I hear this song. I picture a quiet nighttime snow over a sleepy village. Every time I listen to this song, I just close my eyes and go to that village.
10Angels and Airwaves
Hallucinations

Angels and Airwaves pretty much set the tone I wanted to create for this album. I wanted a larger than life ambient feeling of uplifting, positive and beautiful music. I wanted people who listen to this to feel inspired and ready to take on the world. That?s what AWA makes me feel like.
11U2
Pride (In The Name Of Love)

Another one of my favorite U2 songs. If I had to pick one song that (sort of) doesn?t belong on this mix it?d be this one. It?s pretty much only here because I love it.
12Flickerstick
Smile

This is one of the first bands I listened to when I started high school. This is also the same year I met most of my close friends I have now. I want them to smile when they hear this song as they take a trip down memory lane.
13Coldplay
Clocks

This is another song that I listened to with a lot of my close friends several years ago. I had a lot of great memories and fun times with this song in the background. I still can?t get over how amazing that opening piano is.
14U2
Yahweh

This is a song that I wanted on here to thank God for giving me this opportunity that I have now to pursue my dream. That?s what this bold move is all about.
15Foo Fighters
Come Alive

This is the song that inspired me to stop being stagnant in my life and start the new chapter that I?m embarking on now. Hearing Dave Grohl repeating the phrase ?Come Alive? over and over and over pushed me to do just that.
16Kate Voegele
Hallelujah

This is sort of the ?hidden track? on the mix. There?s 30 seconds of silence in between the last song and this one. I?ve always thought this song was beautiful but Kate Voegele?s voice is so strong and powerful that it almost brought me to tears the first time I heard this cover. I want people to leave the listening of this album strengthened and empowered and I think this song does just that.
