Playlist: Musical Theatre Songs to Help You Turn Your Life Around

Today I wanted to share with you all a playlist I recently made. When I need to motivate myself, I always listen to music that inspires me to chase my dreams. I find that music can have such a huge impact on my mood -- surely that's been scientifically proven, right?

This playlist was specifically inspired by my love for the song "Dust and Ashes" from Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812 sung by Josh Groban on the OBC album. When I was struggling last spring with feeling like I had studied the wrong thing in undergrad, being rejected from dozens and dozens of jobs, and feeling as though I'd messed up my career (and maybe even my life!), I listened to this song a lot.

It pushed me to keep going, to keep fighting to realign my life in the way that Pierre decides to by the end of the song. I identified with Pierre's despair and his desire to build a life worth living. It was this song that pushed me to apply to grad school in the UK when jobs in New York weren't working out and without it, I certainly wouldn't be in London today.

Hence...here's a collection of musical theatre songs (and a few songs from musical theatre performers' albums) that will help you turn your life around if you need it, whether that's in relation to your career, your love life, or your whole life in general. Enjoy! x
