TBITHS’ 100 Songs To Live By Playlist!

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I’m excited to say that this is my 100th post!  I spent a while thinking about how to make this post extra special for the occasion and the first thought was that since it falls on a music day I’d write about my favorite band/artist.  There’s just one problem with that idea, I don’t have a favorite musician.  I’m fickle that way.  So instead I decided to make a playlist: The Boy In The Heart Shades’ 100 Songs to Live By!  All of these songs have an anthem-ish quality for some part of my life.  So here they are in alphabetical order by title! (Most of them have music videos so there are a crap load of links!!)
