My Go-To Playlist of Songs
I listen to these songs while completing my house chores, so I can be more energized!
Since I don't really have specific songs that I listen to while doing any form of sit-down work such as doing assignments for school or studying, I decided to do a playlist of tunes that I listo specifically for doing my household chores. Since the summer of 2018, I have been residing in an independent living facility for people with multiple abilities, with the majority of the tenants having some form of mental health issue and/or dual diagnosis. Every day, I always make sure that my apartment is immaculate, otherwise I won't function properly. If my place is not clean enough, I will either be stressed out or won't leave the house until it is clean enough. I usually like to do them during the day when I have enough energy, so I can concentrate better. Every night, I usually do not perform any heavy household chores unless it is necessary. Without music, I will not be able to complete my chores as music helps gives my energy a good kick. I will also get discouraged, easily fatigued and distracted when I don't have upbeat music in the background. I often despise doing household chores, so a playlist of upbeat music or listening to a particular song on Apple Music or YouTube motivates me to complete my chores. On certain days, I would even dance to some of the songs as I am completing my household chores as an excuse to burn extra calories and enjoy doing my chores a bit more. Some days I get moody when I have to do a load of household chores, so I like to cheer myself up by dancing or finding a new playlist of all kinds of songs that I think I would enjoy.
The genres of music that I listen to vary based on my mood and the kind of chores I am doing at the time. With that being said, I mainly listen to dance music because it boosts my energy, gets me moving around my apartment and the types of instruments/beats attract my attention. As I said in one of my previous music-related blogs, I determine the best song based on the instruments, the beat, the voice and the things I visualize while listening to the song. The subgenres of dance music that I typically enjoy are electronic, house, progressive, EDM, rave, drum and bass and dance hits in foreign languages like Mandarin, Japanese, Russian, German, Vietnamese and Hungarian, even though I do not know all of these languages.
Below are my 10 favourite upbeat songs and playists of dance hits for when I am completing my household chores:
1. Russian Hits from the 90's and 2000's- Multiple Artists
2. Russian Techno/Dance Hits from 2019- Multiple Artists
3. Nightcore- Joyride
4. Nightcore- Highland
5. Phrase- Babylon
6. I'm The King- Looperman
7. Nupel Beats- No Pain (Instrumental Version)
8. SheemanBeats- With the Purpose (Instrumental Hip Hop)
9. The Killers- All The Things That I've Done (Morels Pink Noise Vox Mix)
10. Chinese Dance Hits from 2016- Multiple Artists and DJFly
Other than listening to songs by groups and artists such as The Killers, I also love listening to one of my favourite anime-inspired techno groups called Nightcore. After listening to a random song remixed by Nightcore, I became a fan when I was 15 years old. I continue to listen and enjoy most of the songs by Nightcore as an adult. Their music is very uplifting and extremely unique which naturally gives my energy a good kick. When I am doing my chores, I often listen to Nightcore alongside the other side above. I also enjoy listening to various genres such as alternative, hip-hop, rap and rock because these genres are also upbeat and amusing to move around to. The songs are both instrumental and vocal and I would often find them on YouTube or SoundCloud. The songs I listen to while I am completing my household tasks don't always include techno or dance hits. As long as the song has a pleasant beat and is not too slow, I would give any song a listen.
