It seems like nobody understands the way of the introvert. We are often seen as shy, retiring and even anti-social!
And double no!
That ain’t us, so don’t try to pigeonhole. We just get energy from being alone, but we damn well can socialise with the best of ’em. Here’s nine songs which hopefully will help you understand what’s going on inside our brains.
Alessia Cara – ‘Here’
The ultimate introvert rallying cry. We’d rather read a book than party anyday.
Jess Glynne – ‘Take Me Home’
Sometimes we just need to go home and be at peace.
Sam Smith – ‘I’m Not the Only One’
We do have a habit of suffering in silence.
Ed Sheeran – ‘Give Me Love’
But we do need love just like everyone else.
Sia – ‘Big Girls Cry’
And we do know how to show emotions.
London Grammar – ‘Wasting My Young Years’
We think waaaaaaay too much about life.
Calum Scott – ‘Dancing On My Own’
Because sometimes you don’t need a dance partner.
Miley Cyrus – ‘Adore You’
Miley isn’t usually known for her understated tracks, (and the video for this one certainly didn’t help matters), but actually ‘Adore You’ is a rare moment of tranquility on an album full of bangerz.
Carly Rae Jepsen – ‘Run Away With Me’
Ending on a positive note here. Who says that introvert songs have to be downbeat? Carly Rae Jepsen was just so sick of the party in 2015 that she chose to run away to find peace and quiet.
