This week I have been thinking about music. Every night while I do my homework or clean my room I listen to music and I have been realizing that my song choice depends on my mood. I also have noticed that I choose the song based off the lyrics.
If I’m feeling really motivated I tend to listen to music that talks about fighting something in your life or about battling to be the best you can be. For example when I’m motivated to do my best in something I find myself listening to Hall of Fame by Script. The lyrics to hall of fame talk about how someday you could be in the hall of fame and burn bright in the world. My favorite part of the lyrics are “You can be a master , don't wait for luck, dedicate yourself and you can find yourself". These are my favorite lyrics because they state that if you put your mind to it you can achieve anything and will learn things about yourself through your journey. When I listen to this song it motivates me to get my work done. When I’m in a happy mood I tend to listen to more upbeat songs and songs that don’t have a very deep meaning. For example when I’m in a good mood I normally just listen to radio stations like cfx because they tend to play very hype songs with a very strong beat. These tend to be songs that are made to be radio hits. Normally when an artist releases the first single for their album they usually choose the catchiest one with the most upbeat vibe. They release that type of song because they want to release what the radio wants to hear. The more play a song has on the radio the more likely someone will buy the album because their first impression of the album was good . When I’m in a calm mood I tend to listen to slower songs where the voice is softer. For example one of my favourite songs to listen to when I’m in a calm relaxed mood is "Photograph" by Ed Sheeran. I think the reason I find myself listening to this song a lot is because it has a acoustic guitar sound which I find very relaxing. I also think I choose to listen to it because the lyrics are very soft and heartwarming. My favorite lyrics in photograph are “we keep this love in a photograph we made these memories for ourselves ,where our eyes are never closing” because it makes me think about all the good memories we have of our childhoods and all the fun things we experienced in life.
Some days i’m in a mood where I’m gloomy and miss people who used to be a part of my life. One of the songs I listen to alot when I miss people is When I See You Again by Wiz Khalifa. My favorite lyrics in "When I See you again " are" it's been a long day without you, my friend
And I'll tell you all about it when I see you again “ because my grandpa passed away the beginning of freshman year so it gives me hope that I will see him again someday and be able to share my high school experiences with him. Overall the music I listen to is a reflection of how I feel .
