“Flashlight” by Jessie J

When you can rely on someone, you're probably proud of them and grateful that they're by your side. 

Jessie J's “Flashlight” exemplifies this by using the metaphor of a flashlight to represent your trust in another which serves as a bright light that can get you through even the darkest of nights. 

Whether it's a friend, sibling, parent, or mentor, as long as you have your allegorical light with you, there's always a way to get through the darkness.

“The Wonder of You” by Elvis Presley

As you may expect from an Elvis song, “The Wonder of You” is a classic love ballet with pure sentiments and an iconic view of romance. 

Seeing your lover as a “wonder” and taking pride in them is crucial in any relationship and is essential for keeping the magic going throughout the years. 

“Choosey Lover” by The Isley Brothers

Song year: 1983

Getting chosen by a “Choosey Lover” is worth being proud of, and even more so, they're likely someone you can be proud to have around.

“You Are The Reason” by Callum Scott

Song year: 2018

There's nothing worse than losing something you're proud of.
