In this playlist, I wanted to highlight a few synth artists that I've fallen in love with recently. Each artist has a unique sound and soul that are worth experiencing. 1. Carpenter Brut — Paradise Warfare This song is atypical of the synth-wave genre, being a heavy mix of the stereotypical 80s...

We hear so many songs on the radio over and over again. Some that we love, some that we hate, but when you’re sitting in your car listening to “Old Town Road” for the twentieth time in a day, you have to wonder what the radio stations are thinking. There ought to be a bunch of great ...

Content warning: playlist contains explicit and sexual language.I usually go through phases where I listen to a genre or artist excessively until it gets old, then rotate to the next style. It can help keep the music fresh for me, however, it means I sometimes go through phases of admittedly bad music...

Music is a strange thing for me, I don't seek it out and don't stay updated as most people do. Occasionally, I hear something from a friend and I like the band/performer and look them up. So a lot of songs I listen to are pretty dated, but this playlist is still full of songs from all across my life...

When making this playlist, I didn’t have a theme or mood that I was trying to get across. These are songs I just have a lot of random memories attached to - some good, some bad. I hope you all enjoy these songs as much as I have.  The playlist can also be found on Apple Music and Spotify.       Back In The Day - Ahmad   The way in which Ahmad captures his past with such clarity makes you...

The disco movement started out as an underground thing, which is funny to think that disco was underground at one point. It became mainstream in...

I’m not a huge fan of the term “classic rock”—it’s too broad. There’s often much debate about what music actually belongs in this category, but here’s a list of truly timeless rock songs. This list barely scratches the surface of all the great rock songs that ha...

While Halloween songs have never reached the level of cultural oversaturation as the Christmas genre, there's more to listen to to get in the mood for the season than the usual tracks you'll hear at any party down the block this October.
