  1. Ballad of a Homeschooled Girl: This is possibly the most relatable song to ever exist. It is a song about all the ways we could embarrass ourselves and to be honest, I do not think I can go a day, maybe even a few hours without embarrassing myself. I think everyone can relate and jam out to this song.
  2. One Step Forward and Three Steps Back: If you ever need a good cry listen to this song. You don’t even have to be able to relate to the toxic relationship she sings about, something about the way she sings it and the meaning behind the lyrics will touch your heart.
  3. Get Him Back: I think three people came up to me and described this song by saying it was like someone is reading what is going on in their brain. It is personally my go to song for the gym. Something about it just gives me a surge of energy and little confidence boost.
  4. The Grudge: The literary genius behind this song. When she says, “we both drew blood, but those cuts were never equal” I got chills the first time. This song shows her talent as a writer and a singer, and it could not be closer to perfection.
  5. Logical: This is a classic Olivia song, and I am here for it. The piano, the emotion she portrays in her voice. This is a song that all day one Olivia fans will keep close their hearts because it is her roots.
  6. Jealousy, Jealousy: Whether we want to admit it we all get a little jealous, and Ms. Rodrigo says it perfectly in this song. Once again it is like she can read all our minds and puts our thoughts into a song. I think anyone can vibe to this song in the summer heat with the windows down.
  7. Bad Idea Right: The best “get ready” song out there. I would one hundred percent blast this song while getting myself hyped for the day. Everyone will tell you that the best way to wake up in the morning is a cup of coffee, but in my opinion this song gets me way more prepared for my day than my morning cup of coffee.
  8. Making the Bed: We all get into funks and some songs just hit different during these funks and this song is one of them. She portrays so much emotion and talent throughout this song and whenever I need to just take a minute to myself I always play this song.
  9. Traitor: Even if people have never betrayed you, I think everyone can feel the emotion Ms. Olivia put into this song. She not only is singing a song, but she is telling a story with this song, and I think that is the main reason why this song never gets old.
  10. Déjà Vu: This is once again another get hyped for the day kind of songs, except I like to think of this as my midday pick me up. I think most people agree when I say that by three o’clock I have hit a wall and just need a nap. Well my recommendation is to play this song to wake you up and get you ready for the second half of your day.
