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.

There is an episode of The Twilight Zone from 1962 titled A piano in the house, where the music actually transforms individuals from their usual persona. There is an old fashioned player piano's that plays by itself when a roll of music is inserted. Whoever is standing near will notice their mood change depending on what tune is playing.
The composition of the film may be iconic and glamorous or undervalued and subtle, helping to propel the story ahead, develop anticipation or elongate a moment and create a space and suspense. Composers cross the distance between sound and vision with one foot in the realm of storytelling and the other in the field of audio.
As I've been gearing up for my first self-road trip, I was making my playlist for tunes that will be my entertainment as well as singing to my sanity on the way there. This selection will be different then the usual lists of the same songs you'd hear repeated on the radio stations.
