Music For A Boosted Mood

Social distancing and mask wearing have made social life challenging. Through these masks it is difficult to breathe and to hear others as well. 2021 may just as well be a repeat of 2020, or at least half of it until the vaccinations numbers are up to the government's satisfaction. Life as we know it has changed dramatically. Aside from binging on Netflix and Hulu, painting, drawing, making jewelry and music, listening to music is something that enhances my mood significantly in these challenging times. I listen to music almost the entire day, upon waking up, when I'm bathing or showering, when I am falling sleep, and even on my way to the store. I have always had some chunky headphones or earbuds since mp3 players and the Walkman were trending. Music just gives me life!

I Am... Just... A Music Lover

Attention readers! I am no critic though as all people do, I have my own opinion. I do not work for Billboard or Rolling Stone but I’d like to think I have a great ear for good music. My grandmothers half-sister on her fathers side, Gertrude, was the cousin of whom many know as Billie Holiday. According to my grandmother my great-grandfather did not want his children to pursue a career in the music business because it did not pay well. However, my great grandfather Charlie Dixon was in a jazz band himself. The jazz band was called, "Fletcher Henderson Orchestra." They have vinyl records from 1923 to 1931. In addition, my father ended up dj'ing before I was born and has cool videos of my mom and him driving to New York for gigs. Who'm when they arrived I thought was neat that Busta Rhymes was in the background talking to him calling him "A." Im only just now discovering such things which explains my passion for music, it's literally in my DNA.

The Playlists Intro

I took the time to put together two separate lists of my favorite newish songs. The first playlist I call, “Millennial Soul Top 50” which has a smooth vibe to sing along with while cleaning or taking a bubble bath. (You can surely listen to it whenever you’re in the mood those are just when I listen to these songs specifically.) The second playlist I call, “GIDDUP!” GIDDUP is music that motivates me when I workout or just want to feel empowered and it's a combination of Pop, Rap, Dembow and Kondzilla.
