If playlists are the ultimate currency of coolness, we're your virtual treasury.
A Spotify Playlist to Get Your Characters Naked
Music has the ability to set your skin on fire. There are songs that slam you against a wall and kiss you until your lips bruise; music that strips you down to your barest and most vulnerable self. A slow, yearning beat and a desperate voice have a way of smoldering you from the inside out.
Songs That Say F%[email protected] You C#$% When You Can’t
Feeling exasperated and overwhelmed with emotion? We often face pain, hurt, sadness, and anger that can get the best of our emotions. We experience many emotions after a breakup, but other events stir our emotions. When you feel like you will burst inside, turn the music loud.

CHIKA - "Can't Explain It" Chika was born in Montgomery, Alabama. She's long had a deep interest in music and slam poetry and explored both while attending Booker T. Washington Magnet High School.

Classical Music Playlist You Must Listen To and That Inspires You
Listening to classical music can make you as relaxed as energetic, as well as being involved in a very emotional state. I love listening to classical music, as well playing the violin. My passion for classical music extend as much as I listen to (new) music and recordings. Why does a musician play the way he or she plays? What feeling(s) do I get? And I can ask myself many more questions, but overall, I love making my own playlist, whether it is on YouTube, Spotify, or any other streaming platform.
You Had To Be There
I realised a few things when I first started curating the optimal contributions to my studying music playlists around two years ago:
My Zen playlist is a little different. It includes only one artist and features just one composition. It lasts eight hours and twenty-four minutes. Maybe the most unique thing about my Zen playlist is that the first time I listened to it, I experienced it in person, during a live performance.
Ride the Good Vibes
We all need an escape now and again. More than ever, we could probably all benefit from a Zen space where we can free our minds, calm our souls and maybe feel a bit of sun on our skin.
Sounds for Leaving this RealityBehind
These are my favorite tracks for daydreaming or lucid dreaming. If you like lo-fi sounds ("dirty" noise) and emotional instrumental swells this will resonate with you. My hope is it lulls you to sleep before sweeping you into a dream.
For the Omies
Hey Omies. Sometimes I forget I’m human. In the magical and mundane senses. This compilation of music tickles me where I’m lost. Yes, tickles. Because while it's uncomfortable. And awkward. It's all in good jest from the universe.

In a Tizzy? Well, I’ve Got Some Tunes to Soothe You: Americana Edition
Pardon me, but I think it's a little unusual (rude) to leave Americana out of the conversation when we're talking about "zen" or soothing music. Personally, it's my go-to genre when I need any kind of comforting or encouragement. Whenever I find myself in a rut, I'll play one of my favorite Americana tunes and like magic, I find my way back to center with a renewed sense of purpose and steadfast motivation.
Musical Therapy to Reach Zen
We are all unique. We’re vastly different from our parents and siblings — our own kin. Various genetic and environmental factors come into play when shaping us which leads all of us to different interests and different ways to cope with the human condition. Music is a powerful gift that can revive our human spirit to help us through the hardships of life and bring us to Zen.
Nostalgia, Meet Zen
Track 1: The first kiss between my parents witnessed by my cognitive self was at a Neil Diamond concert. As an 8th grader, was the bottom tier of fashion, wearing a knock-off Panama Jack light blue long-sleeve t-shirt from Ventures with “jeans” in the flimsiest sense of the word, in that they were made with denim but missing a zipper and button, flared along the waist with full-on ruffles, and a built in belt, to ensure I was never invited to a sleepover.
