Many, many months have passed, and you’ve gone through every type of emotion possible. Some days you wake up feeling like you can take on the world and some days you just want to curl up in a bed and never get up. We all need a reliable coping mechanism. Thankfully, the one thing that is always accessible is music (shoutout to Spotify for being the greatest platform invented.) Music is the way I have dealt with quarantine stress, whether it’s learning new songs on the piano or just listening to my favorite Spotify playlists. I’ve compiled some of my favorite songs for each of my quarantine moods.
This Saturday marks the 244th anniversary of our declaration of independence from England. In light of the protests still raging across our country, I thought I would put together an appropriate playlist for such a time that I hope captures the political mood of today while also hearkening back to some classic topics.
Don't get me wrong, I have loved BTS since 2018 and they are an amazing group who have paved the way for a lot of groups in the industry to make waves in the West, particularly the US. But I thought I'd talk about some of the other groups out there that do amazing work that you might not have considered listening to.
Music follows me everywhere, like if my life had a soundtrack. Like most people, I'm always looking for new singers and bands. The feeling of having a whole discography to discover is unique, incomparable. Each time it's like uncovering a brand new world. Each artist, each sound brings to light new perspectives on life to the keen listener. Without further ado, here are some of the singers and bands I consider underrated and more than worthy to feature on your next playlists. (This is not a Top 10, so there's no order)
I wanted to go through some song lyrics that I’m personally attached too from one band. I would like to give my incites into these songs and give the why I’m personally attached to them. Starset is a cinematic rock band. The amazing sound, lyrics, and vocals harmonize enhancing each other perfectly. Its also hints at futuristic themes.
Like I've said before, any kind of work or study session you have in front of you is a lot easier to get through with the right music in the background. I love listening to soundtracks when working, both because instrumentals make it easier for me to concentrate, and because orchestral style music is great for stimulating my brain. Here's a list of ten different soundtracks from TV shows that I'd recommend you add to your playlist.

A lot of amazing games are accessorised with highly enjoyable soundtracks, which are great to listen to even when you're not playing. With their calming vibes, thrilling tunes and inspirational build-ups, video game soundtracks are great for putting on when you need extra motivation. Here's a list of ten tracks I personally find greatly helpful for getting work done.

So I decided to do something new for a change and talk about my current Top 5 New Fave Artists. This is a list of artists that I have discovered recently (within the last few months or so) that I keep finding myself going back to. I’ll also list my recommendation for songs and what got me into them.
