All About Alex's Friend Garrison

A Soundtrack of my life by: Garrison Hinshaw


I would like to dedicate this soundtrack to all of those people in my life that have helped me become a better person. This includes my parents, grandparents, siblings, and friends who have been with me throughout the years. To all of those people I just want to say thank you for all that you have done for me. I can only hope that I have had the same influence on your life as you have had on mine. Rest in peace Granny and Nuna we love and miss you.

"Over the Hills and Far Away" by Led Zeppelin (4:49)

I chose this song because it describes the ups and downs you face in life and how you have to overcome them.

"Open Arms" by Journey (3:19)

I chose this because it reminds me of my grandmother, who passed away when I was in the fifth grade, every time I hear it.

"Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns N' Roses (5:56)

I chose this song because as a kid it was my favorite song and reminds me of going with my grandparents and cousins to sing karaoke.

"Dear Mama" by 2Pac (4:41)

Even though this song doesn't describe my life at all. It still shows how much I appreciate my mom and what she does for me.

"Just The Two of Us" by Will Smith (4:30)

I chose this song because it shows the struggle a father goes through to raise his son and the love fathers have for their kids. It really helps me show how much I appreciate my dad as a role model and what he has done to better me as a person.

"The Lazy Song" by Bruno Mars (3:29)

I decided to add this song because it is basically the anthem of my life and how I live it.

This song was added to reflect over my so far great high school experience and hopefully it continues through my senior year.

This song reminds me of all of the great and not so great memories I have had with my siblings that I will cherish forever.

"I'll Be There For You" by The Rembrandts (3:15)

I chose this song to represent all of the times I have had with my friends for obvious reasons, but it doesn't take away from the fact of how much I appreciate them.

"The Baseball Song" by Corey Smith (3:44)

"Carolina In My Mind" by James Taylor (4:00)

I chose this song because even though I would love to travel and experience new things I will always be able to remember and identify North Carolina as my home and where my family will be.
