Musically Inclined…

by Jess on November 15, 2016

People ask me all the time, “What’s your favorite song? Who’s your favorite band?”

I cannot answer them. I cannot pinpoint any one favorite. My go-to songs and artists are many and continuously expanding in this day and age of one-click access. Attending a university near Nashville, I was fortunate enough to be able to experience many up-and-coming artists in intimate settings (if you ever go to Nashville and you’re looking for something more low-key than the Ryman or Bridgestone, check out Marathon Music Works, Cannery Ballroom, and Mercy Lounge. You’ll practically feel like you’re onstage). There my appreciation for the unusual was cultivated, and three years later it still thrives.

So. I can’t give definites, but I can give options. What I can’t get out of my head right now are the following bands:

Catfish and the Bottlemen (fav tracks: “7”, “Kathleen”,  “Sidewinder”)

Kungs (“You Remain” feat. Ritual)

RY X (“Salt”, “Berlin”, “Howling”

Banks (any and everything. Start with “Waiting Game” and “Brain” from her first album; “Judas” and “Poltergeist” on her second)

Daughter (“Smother”, “No Care”, “Winter”, “Youth”…anything. Her voice is gold)

Kaleo (“Way Down We Go”, “All The Pretty Girls”)

James Vincent McMorrow (“Ghosts”, “We Don’t Eat”, “Get Low”)

repeat repeat (“Not The One”)

And of course there are always some throwback tunes in my mix…I’ll never not be obsessed with 90s gold such as Backstreet Boys and Britney, as well as the classic rock like Led Zeppelin and Creedence Clearwater Revival that my parents raised me on. What about you guys? What are some of your favorites?


Favorite Music

Music is one of my absolute favorite things about life. Ask anyone who knows me, I don’t go anywhere without earphones in except for class, and only because I haven’t found an effective way to listen to both music and my lecture (though I have tried)! My taste in music is all over the place and changes with my mood, but I always have alternative type sounds on all my playlists. My all time favorite band is Imagine Dragons, and I LOVE Halsey, Catfish & the Bottlemen, Glass Animals, Lorde, Twenty One Pilots, Coldplay, and The Neighbourhood. For things like workouts I love the Chainsmokers, Tove Lo, Ellie Goulding, Fall Out Boy, Calvin Harris, anything high energy. I like really calm music for studying, like Ed Sheeran, Kaleo, whatever. All music is good music to me!

What do you like to listen to? I’m always up for new suggestions!




favorite music

My favorite music genre is pop and hip hop. I really like lady gaga, DJ snake, chainsmokers, Ariana grande and many more. I mostly listen to music on Pandora. Sometimes I listen to the radio. Although my mom says I should never admit it, I like disco as well. Some music that I don’t like are hard rock and roll, country and classical music. My mom is a former opera singer, so she made me listen to classical music quite a bit. Recently I have been listening to lots of Halloween music. I love monster mash and music from the nightmare before Christmas. I wont be listening to any Christmas music until after Thanksgiving. I want both holidays to be separate. What I really cant stand is Christmas country music. I associate the south with palm trees and a cactus. I associate Christmas with snow. Both are separate things and I don’t like them mixed. Just like I don’t like thanksgiving, Halloween, and Christmas mixed together, I like to celebrate it separately.


Even though I’ve played sports all my life with friends, I didn’t “officially” play a sport until high school. My sport was football. But the sport that you play doesn’t matter unless you have a great selection of music to accompany it. And naturally when you play football, you listen to Hip Hop/Rap and Hard Rock (AC/DC anyone?!) Why Hip Hop/Rap or Hard Rock? Let’s say you are at the gym working out. Since the instrumental beats are loaded with bass and are repetitive, it helps you with lifting weights, running, or performing any other activity at a consistent and steady pace. Plus, it hypes you up to the point where you feel like an immortal while you are working out (certain songs have such ability). I’m pretty sure that everyone has listened to “Remember The Name” by Fort Minor while working out. These are the only two genres that are the music equivalent to the amount of adrenaline that is inside your body during a workout or playing a sport. But that was back in high school. What about now?

I still have the two genres in my Spotify playlists. I currently listen to almost everything: from 70’s/80’s classic Rock to today’s G-Eazy & Sammy Adams. I fall into the category called “Bass Heads.” If you haven’t deduced that already.. But when the moment strikes I can be listening to the polar opposite. When studying or doing mindless tasks (like copying notes from a PowerPoint), my headphones output the equivalent to getting some work done at a Bread Co. The reason behind this is because when you listen to songs that have no vocals (Classical or Smooth Jazz), you are less likely to get distracted, more likely to be productive and attentive of what you are doing. Until next time guys, stay classy.


Let’s Talk Music…

Okay, so where do I begin for this post?!  First of all, let’s start with the fact that I am pretty much all over the map as far as favorite artists/genres/etc. goes.  A lot of the time, it depends on my mood — if I’m a little down, or really upbeat, or stressed, or open […]

Favorite Music

by Claire November 3, 2016

A very common question that gets asked on an almost daily basis is what is your favorite kind of music? To this question, I never have an answer. My favorite song changes almost daily and the idea of limiting myself to one song, one group, or even one genre is frightening. As a commuter, my […]

Music to My Ears

by Lauren November 3, 2016

I am jazzed to talk about music. Music has gotten me through a lot of trying times. In fact, if you ask anyone on campus, I’m sure they’ll tell you that music has played an important part in their lives in some way. I’ve always been passionate about music. My parents’ love of music rubbed off […]

Feeling Out of Tune?

by Taylor February 19, 2016

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from my time at college, it’s that everyone has really off days. Days where we have no motivation to do anything, and cannot even fathom the thought of getting out of bed, let alone going to class, studying, or going to work. It’s true that most of us have […]
