Songs to Make You Feel Like You’re in a Coming of Age Movie

As a way to pass time during my never-ending days stuck in quarantine, I’ve found myself reverting back to the same coming of age movies. The plotlines are always the same, the new girl at school doesn’t fit in, two polar opposites somehow find love, but something about the cheesiness and predictability of these films draws me in every time.  If you’re looking to feel something again and be the star in your own coming of age movie, give these songs a try!
