Story of My Life

Brittany Miller

Dedication

I'm making this soundtrack and dedicating it to my parents. My life has never been easy thanks to the two of them, especially my mother, so this is sort of a 'f*ck you' thing. ;]
A Whole New World

A Whole New World - Aladdin

This is number one on my list, not only because Aladdin was - and still is - my favorite Disney movie, but because it really represents my childhood. I watched Aladdin as much as I absolutely could, and that's why this song is on my soundtrack.
Dan + Shay - 19 You + Me (Official Music Video)

19 You + Me - Dan + Shay

This song ended up #2 because it stands for another part of my childhood, We used to go to Myrtle Beach every single year, and I have to say that those were my favorite parts of the year. It was a trip for the whole family. Plus, it's one of my absolute favorite songs.
Craig morgan almost home

Almost Home - Craig Morgan

This song is one from my childhood. I can remember when dad used to burn CDs a lot, and he put this song on one. I would always want to listen to it, too. I think what stuck with me the most, though, is when mom told me that dad put it on there because it was her dad's favorite song. I don't remember my Pawpaw Dale much at all, but this song is dedicated to him.
Carrie Underwood - Two Black Cadillacs

Two Black Cadillacs - Carrie Underwood

Now this song is on here for a vastly different reason than the previous two. This one is really for the transition period of my life. Mom left for 18 months and when she came back, she wanted everything to be hunky dory. That didn't happen, and she actually accused my dad of cheating on her. She nearly tried to kill him, then tried to burn his clothes, and eventually tried to kill herself. So this song is dedicated to that specific time in my life.
Carrie Underwood - Jesus, Take The Wheel

Jesus Take The Wheel - Carrie Underwood

This song is on here because of the one before this, in fact. During the 18 months that mom was gone, and even for a while afterwards, I lost God. I stopped going to see my grandparents, and started going to church. I was actually angry at him during that time, because of my mom leaving. Eventually, though, I found my way back. And that's really what this song is about to me, being lost and finding your way back.
Fall Out Boy - My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up) - Part 1 of 11

My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark - Fall Out Boy

This song is here for two very different reasons. The first is the obvious that was stated previously - mom tried to burn all of my dad's clothes. But it's also on here because mom took me to meet Preston right after all of that went down, and I saw her kiss him for the first time. So I knew what she was doing, figuratively, in the dark.
Imagine Dragons - Demons (Official)

Demons - Imagine Dragons

With everything going on in my life, I guess you could say that I was fighting Demons everywhere I turned. I was depressed, and in reality it changed me. I turned into a completely different person - more of a b*tch, to be honest. Eventually, though, I was able to conquer my own demons.
She's So Gone - Naomi Scott - Lyrics

She's So Gone - Lemonade Mouth/Naomi Scott

This song holds a special meaning to me in a lot of ways. After everything with mom going psychotic on us, I changed. I mean, going through that and not changing was sort of impossible. I can honestly say it made me a better, more mature person than I was and it helped me develop a thicker skin, per say.
Glee - We Are Young (Full Performance) HD

We Are Young - Glee Cast

I liked this version better than the original, even though I didn't like Glee, so I hope it's okay. This song is on here because with my new way of thinking came a new hope. That one of these days, I'd get the heck out of this town and away from my lie.
"Say Something" - Victoria Justice & Max - ONE TAKE!

Say Something - Victoria Justice & Max Schneider

This song is on here as a dedication to last year. For several reasons, actually. One being a relationship that ended up not working out due to him not speaking to me for the last month, and the second because of my mom. Everything usually comes back to her, though.
Journey - Don't Stop Believing Lyrics

Don't Stop Believing - Journey

This song brought hope back into my life in the past few years, and it will probably always hold a special place in my heart because of it. That is why it's on this list.
Hunter Hayes - Storyline (Official Audio)

Storyline - Hunter Hayes

So this song is on here because of a certain person who saved me, in a few ways. He has taught me a lot in the past year that I've known him, and I'm glad. So because he got me absolutely hooked on this song, it's for him.
Fall Out Boy - Thnks fr th Mmrs

Thnks Fr Th Mmrs - Fall Out Boy

So this song is sort of a dedication for all four of my high school years. I also find this sort of ironic, since it was also the closer for this year's marching band show.
Meghan Trainor - All About That Bass

All About That Bass - Meghan Trainor

This is on here just for a bit of comic relief at the end of this. Since the rest was kind of actually serious.
