Music recommendations from someone who is very underqualified
By Hannah Spranger, Co-Content Editor
If you’re like me, your music taste is constantly changing based on your mood or what time of day it is. Sometimes, it feels like my taste changes much faster than I can find new music. If you are also struggling with this problem, read on. Here are my suggestions of what to listen to depending on your mood:
This first category is for when you’re driving on the back roads with your windows down and want to feel like you’re living your teenage years to their fullest. These songs always make me want to scream the lyrics and never stop driving. I would especially recommend driving during sunrise or sunset to achieve the best vibes possible.
“Rollercoaster” by Bleachers
“Seeing Stars” by BøRNS
“Kids” by MGMT
“We are Young” by fun.
“New Religion” by The Heydaze
“The Middle” by Jimmy Eat World
“Anna Sun” by WALK THE MOON
“I Miss Those Days” by Bleachers
“It’s Not Living (If It’s Not With You)” by The 1975
Next are my crafting songs. This is the music I put on when I want to feel inspired as I’m attempting to make art that usually ends up looking horrible. When I play these songs, I can sit down and completely lose track of time as I collage or paint with watercolors. Listen to these songs and accept that your art may be far from perfect, but it’s better than a blank page.
“Honeybee” by the Head and the Heart
“Flowers in Your Hair” by The Lumineers
“Dirty Paws” by Of Monsters and Men
“Like Gold” by Vance Joy
“Fire and the Flood” by Vance Joy
“Lost in My Mind” by The Head and The Heart
“The Cave” by Mumford and Sons
I don’t know about you, but one of my least favorite activities is washing dishes, and these songs are what get me through the torturous task. I would deem these my guilty pleasures because I would only dare play them in the comfort of my own home. If you have a task you need to power through with the help of some bops, 10/10 would recommend these.
“I Knew you Were Trouble” by Taylor Swift
“I Want It That Way” by Backstreet Boys
“Shower” by Becky G
“Down” by Jay Sean
“Best Song Ever” by One Direction
“Whatcha Say” by Jason Derulo
“Starships” by Nicki Minaj
“Cross Me” by Ed Sheeran
When you need to cry, there is only one song that always does the trick for me.
“Oogway Ascends” by Hans ZImmer and John Powell
