Hey music lovers,
Have you ever found a song that you just can’t help but to play it on repeat until the sun goes down? Or have a song that is stuck in your head all the time? Below are the top songs that define a specific mood; songs that can be your “go tos” so that you can blare it in your speakers or rock your headphones to it.
Heartbreak- 5 Seconds of Summer- “Amnesia”. This song I have had on repeat for a while (even though I am not heartbroken…) but it brings you back to your past. Sometimes we wish we could forget the pain someone has caused us and move on, but pain is part of growing up, growing stronger. Without pain, we wouldn’t be as strong as we are, and sometimes you need to let the pain out. It’s okay to cry! Because in the end, we feel so much better and are able to do the toughest thing we have ever had to do: move on.
Girl Power- Colbie Caillat- “Try”. In this song, Caillat stands up to the society’s norms. Society has structured woman so that beauty is everything. Society has come to believe that it’s the makeup you wear,the clothes you buy, what shape your body is, how much skin you show on a Friday night out so that you will be liked. What society fails to realize is that beauty is seen not only on the outside, but within. Anyone has the right to do what they want to their body, and society does not have a say about that. You want a tattoo? Get one. You want to dye your hair bright pink? Why not! You are the judge of your body, and you should look the way you want without society telling you how to be beautiful. You already are. If you love yourself, you are beautiful, and what you think is all that matters.
Arousing But Fun- Jason Derulo- “Trumpets”. Just the instruments and the beat alone will have you rockin’ to this for hours on end (and trust me, it’s a song you won’t stop singing and humming to). This song is not only catchy from it’s instruments, but from it’s lyrics as well. Derulo sings about other artists. For example, he uses the lines, “your bra reminds me of a Katy Perry” or “your eyes remind me of a Coldplay song”. Hearing how he uses these artists is really interesting and fun to listen to.
New Love– Charli XCX- “Boom Clap”. Not only is this song from the infamous movie “The Fault in Our Stars”, but it has been hitting HUGE all over the nation. This song is catchy with a basic base and pop out lyrics that just tug at your heart strings. This song is about how you feel when you are around someone you are attracted to. Your heart tends to speed up and that is what Charli XCX is talking about.
Pump Up– Iggy Azalea- “Fancy”. “First things first…” This song is not only blasting to the top of the charts, but so is her latest single “Black Widow”. However this song is all about the pump up, the power, with the kick-ass beat where you want to sassily snap your fingers to. This song will not only put you in a good mood, but you’ll be feeling like a rock-star all day and all night long.
Happy- The Clash “Should I Stay or Should I Go”. A classic throwback that is a sure guarantee to put a smile on your face. Instead of choosing the cheap way out and choosing Pharrell Williams’ “happy”, a throwback song always puts you in a happy mood. Not only is this song a song that you will groove to, it’s a song you can rock out to in the office without getting in trouble with your boss. And if you do, just ask “Should I stay or should I go now” (and hopefully they will let you stay).
Of course these are only a few songs that are out there for any mood you are feeling. So grab your tub of ice cream and blare 5 Seconds of Summer, or snag your hairbrush and jump on your bed while listening to The Clash. Whoever and whatever song you choose that fits your mood is the song that speaks to you, and you should run with it.
So until next time, dance, live, and love music.
