Music You Should Be Listening To: 1st Edition

“And I thought about how many people have loved those songs. And how many people got through a lot of bad times because of those songs. And how many people enjoyed good times with those songs. And how much those songs really mean. I think it would be great to have written one of those songs. I bet if I wrote one of them, I would be very proud. I hope the people who wrote those songs are happy. I hope they feel it’s enough. I really do because they’ve made me happy. And I’m only one person.”

Stephen Chbosky, Perks of Being A Wallflower

I’m a girl that likes many genres of music.

My main playlist that I listen to is all over the place: PVRIS to Outkast to Pentatonix to Reel Big Fish. I’m a lover of a good beat, inspirational lyrics that I can connect to and above all, passion. The artists that I have compiled together below, I feel exemplify really amazing music that people should be listening to from a bunch of various genres. I feel there’s something in this list for every type of music lover. This is only the first volume so be on the lookout in the future for the other volumes in the series!
