Keepin' It Real Since '98

A Soundtrack of My Life by Addie Franklin


I want to dedicate this soundtrack to my amazing friends and family who have always stuck with me through thick and thin. No matter what I am going through, I can always count on them. I honestly wouldn't know what to do if I didn't have these amazing people in my life.

"Ignition (remix)" by R. Kelly (3:06)

This song reminds me of road trips with my cousin Emily. Every time we go somewhere she plays this song and dances to it. It is seriously the funniest thing ever! She is one of the few people that can get me to laugh when I'm having a horrible day.

"I Hope You Dance" by Lee Ann Womack (4:54)

My mom would always listen to this song and say it reminds her of me. My mom is the person who I look up most to in the world. I know how cliche this sounds, but I honestly could not ask for a better mom.

"Smooth Criminal" by Alien Ant Farm (3:29)

My dad, every time this song come on, sings "Addie" instead of "Annie". When I was little I used to really think this song was about me because I thought it had my name in it! If there is anyone I act like in this world, it's my dad. I'm just not sure if that's a good or bad thing haha!

"These Days" by Rascal Flatts (4:14)

This is just a song that my best friends, Lindsey and Taylor, and I always sing along to. Now, every time it comes on and I am alone, I make sure to send them a snapchat video of myself singing it.

"Rid Wit Me" by Nelly (4:50)

Let's be honest here, this song just puts everyone in a great mood. This song was made for you to turn it all the way up and sing along.

"True Friend" by Hannah Montana (3:09)

I met Lindsey and Taylor Albrecht on the first day of kindergarten and ever since then we have been inseparable. We're not even like best friends anymore, we're basically sisters. Without them my life would be so dull. I honestly cannot think of one funny memory that doesn't include them. This song just describes our friendship, we love each other as family and would do anything for each other.
Hannah Montana - True Friend + Lyrics

"Over the Rainbow" by Judy Garland (2:46)

Growing up, and even now, "The Wizard of Oz" was my favorite movie. Whenever I hear this song I automatically think of the movie.

"Who Let The Dogs Out" by Baha Men (3:18)

I love animals so much, especially my dogs. It's weird, but whenever I'm upset about something my dogs will come in my room, jump on top of me, and try to lick me. It's like they know something is wrong and want to make me feel better. I mean, who needs a boyfriend when you have dogs haha.

"Family (Blended Babies Remix)" by Chance The Rapper (3:07)

I come from a pretty big family, so whenever we have family get-togethers things are never boring. My family is a little...crazy, but I wouldn't have it any other way. My family have made me who I am today and without them life just would not be the same. So this one goes out to you fam!

"Should've Said No" by Taylor Swift (4:02)

This song reminds me of when I went to the Fearless Taylor Swift tour. This was the last song she played and it was so good!

"Party In The USA" by Miley Cyrus (3:21)

Two years ago I went on a road trip to California with my grandparents. It was honestly the best vacation I've ever been on. I chose this song because when we stayed in LA, I would look to my right and literally see the Hollywood sign.

"Blessings" by Big Sean (5:02)

I am truly blessed to live the life I have. I have a wonderful family and friends that I can depend on and I have never had to go without anything. This song reminds me of that.
