I've Got the Music in Me ~gretchen boxberger~

Music is a huge part of my life! Here are some of the genres that I really enjoy, some of my favorite artists, and some lyrics that really speak to me!


Judah and the Lion

"Hey, My life is real great / feel I'm well on my way / to my dreams coming true / and I'm getting to do it with you"- (Take it All Back)


Chance the Rapper

"I was too late, I was too late, A shadow of what I once was / 'Cause we don't, we don't do what we say we're gonna , you were always perfect, and I was only practice."- (Same Drugs)



"I am the dragon breathing fire / beautiful mane I'm the lion / beautiful man I know you're lying / I am not broken / I'm not crying...I'm not crying. -(Don't Hurt Yourself)



"You love this town, even if that doesn't ring true, you've been all over, and it's been all over you"-(Beautiful Day)


Hillsong United

"Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders, let me walk upon the waters, wherever you would call me, take me deeper than feet could ever wander, and my faith will be made stronger, in the presence of my Savior."-(Oceans)



"I've been seeing all, I've been seeing your soul, give me things that I wanted to know, tell me things that you've done, I've been feeling old, I've been feeling cold, you're the heat that I know, see, you are my sun."-(Drop the Game)

I've Got the Music in Me

Music has always been a huge part of my life. From when I was little, to now, my parents have usually had some type of music playing. Whether it was 105.9, classical on NPR, or just plain death metal rock, it was rarely quiet in my household. As a kid I could be found dancing around the living room with my dad, or making sure I was able to choose the radio station in the car. In 6th grade I chose to play the cello, and in 7th grade I joined West Middle School's Chorale, both of which I still participate in. Through Free State's orchestra and choir programs, I have grown to love so many different types of music- from singing in complete gibberish (sounds of summoning something, not literally though), to playing Smashmouth's "Allstar" for small ensemble contest- that I have new appreciation for. Everyday I listen to roughly an hours worth of music (maybe more) which varies from many genres. Music is without a doubt, a therapy, an inspiration and much more for me.
