For almost a decade now, Demi Lovato has been a great part of music industry and had influenced a lot of people already. She may experienced some ups and downs on her career like having a voice problems, but still her name and voice will forever be in the hearts of Lovatics.
Yes, I’m one of the Lovatics! Ever since Camp Rock came out of the cinemas, I became a big fan of Demi Lovato. I remember I was addicted to Gaia Online during grade school and my username was Emid Otavol, the reversed words for her name. When I was in high school, I downloaded most of her songs, put it in a folder and listen to that playlist time by time. And now that I’m in College wherein I started blogging, I shared an OOTD: This Is Me wherein I styled myself like Mitchie Torres. These are just some of the effects that my love for Demi have done. This also lead me to list down my top ten favorite Demi Lovato songs from her albums, Don’t Forget, Here We Go Again, Unbroken and Demi.
10. Cool for the Summer
Don’t tell your mother Kiss one another Die for each other We’re cool for the summer
We know that Demi has been through some vocal problems for the past few years but talent-wise, she’s definitely up there! Her voice is back with her newest single, Cool for the Summer. And I’m freaking proud that she finally has the courage to show the world how beautiful her curves are, no matter what the people say.
I’m gonna love you like I’ve never been broken I’m gonna say it like it’s never been spoken Tonight, tonight I’m letting go, go, go, go I’m gonna give it like it’s never been taken I’m gonna fall like I don’t need saving Tonight, tonight I’m letting go, go, go, go
I’m just wondering why they call it unbroken. She didn’t even said the word in the song. Maybe, it’s just to shorten the meaning of the line “I’m gonna love you like I’ve never been broken.” But hey, that don’t matter because this is a great song. It reminds me of her song Never Been Hurt which has the same meaning and idea.
8. Who Will I Be
Who will I be? It’s up to me All the never ending possibilities That I can see There’s nothing that I can’t do Who will I be? Yes, I believe I get to make the future what I want to If I can become anyone and know the choice is up to me Who will I be?
I’m a Camp Rock fan and I find this really good! This is the first music that we’ll hear in the movie, right? Well, the moment I first heard it, I already added it on my list of favorite songs. However, as I listen to this song, I noticed that her voice have improve over the years. She sounds great at that time, but even better now.
7. Wouldn’t Change a Thing
Like fire and rain (like fire and rain) You can drive me insane (You can drive me insane) But I can’t stay mad at you for anything We’re Venus and Mars (Venus and Mars) We’re like different stars (like different stars) But you’re the harmony to every song I sing And I wouldn’t change a thing
If Who Will I be is my favorite song in the first Camp Rock film, Wouldn’t Change a Thing is it’s counterpart for me in their second Camp Rock film. Her voice was just beautifully blended with Joe Jonas’. Apart from that, the meaning and lyrics of the song is relatable to a lot of in-a-relationship people.
You can take everything I have You can break everything I am Like I’m made of glass Like I’m made of paper Go on and try to tear me down I will be rising from the ground Like a skyscraper Like a skyscraper
I think, I added this to Songs in my Heart, a list of music that describes me, and said there that even there are obstacles that blocks me , I build strong foundations for me to build my own skyscrapers. I actually love her voice sounding stressed here. It made the song that much more real, raw, easy to relate to and emotional.
5. For the Love of a Daughter
Oh, father, Please, father I’d love to leave you alone But I can’t let you go Oh, father Please, father Put the bottle down For the love of a daughter
It’s my first time to hear a song or even a speech that favors a daughter than a parent. I know they are always right but they still have to know that they still make mistakes in deciding. Thanks to Demi for giving such message through a lovely song. A child should never go through this kind of trauma. The whole world should know that!
4. Work of Art
Come on let’s write a song, a little poetry Take a photograph, let’s make some memories You can make it anything that you want it to be If you follow your heart, life is a work of art
This song which appears on the Disney TV series, Sonny with a Chance, always influence me to be creative and to follow my heart and dreams just like what the American sitcom do. It’s not just the title but the song itself is a work of art. Demi Lovato, even if she may not realize it, is a source of inspiration and joy!
3. Really Don’t Care
But even if the stars and moon collide I never want you back into my life You can take your words and all your lies Oh oh oh I really don’t care
I love this song because in addition to its wonderful music that makes my body jive with its beat, the eighth track from her latest and self-titled album has a stunning music video that helped to raise a lot of money for the LGBT community. At first, I thought it was meant for breakups. Well, it was good that they took on another meaning.
2. Shouldn’t Come Back
Maybe you shouldn’t come back Maybe you shouldn’t come back to me Tired of being so sad, Tired of getting so mad, baby Stop right now, You’ll only let me down, oh, oh Maybe you shouldn’t come back Maybe you shouldn’t come back to me
These words speak the truth and it makes me cry! Maybe, for us, listeners, the song refers to our partners that shouldn’t come back because we know that they’ll gonna break our hearts again. However, for Demi, the song is for her father. I feel good on her that she really puts her emotions to songs.
1. Heart Attack
Puttin’ my defenses up ‘Cause I don’t wanna fall in love If I ever did that I think I’d have a heart attack
Demi Lovato blew me out of the water vocally in this song! She proved that she’s certainly a strong singer. I think, she’d give me a heart attack because of her astounding vocal range that can be heard in Heart Attack. Oh I have nothing more to say. I ran out of words because of the song’s and the singer’s greatness.
