Mood Music

by


Just the mention of certain artists (hello, Teddy P), invoke slow jamming and romantic nights with a love interest. But the amazing power of music is that it can heighten or change any mood. On of the simplest ways to set the tone of any event, moment, or evening is to choose the music.

Yolanda Adams’ “In the Midst of it All” and Donnie McClurklin’s “We Fall Down” have been known to inspire a praise session on the worst days. Jill Scott’s “Blessed” and Ledisi’s “Bravo” can help you change your perspective with just one rotation. And prepping for a night out with the girls, can give you the “this-is-better-than-the-club feeling with the right combination of anthems and throwback jams.

Dealing with heartbreak? You can either throw on the tear-jerking tracks that remind you of your past love, the super angry all men are dogs and we’re better without them songs, or you can rap along with and imitate your favorite MC who loves them and leaves them.

With all the highs and lows, anthems, and party-starters, we’re wondering what you listen to and when.

What songs do you go to for a quick pick-me-up?

What’s the best album to create the ideal ambiance for a romantic dinner?

What song will get you through that last .5 miles?

Which artists always get you through that last stretch during finals week?

  • Whatever

    Anything PRINCE

    “What’s the best album to create the ideal ambiance for a romantic dinner?”

    VOODOO by D’Angelo (or Brown Sugar)

    “What song will get you through that last .5 miles?”

    No other song could get me going on the treadmill or in the park like “YOU MAKE ME FEEL” by Sylvester

    “Which artists always get you through that last stretch during finals week?”

    When I was in undergrad “MAMA’s GUN” by Erykah Badu did it for me during finals.

    I like Dwele, Jill Scott and Jazz. But Sorry to say that on the radio ration. They play the same songs over and over so that does not give the other great artist that alot of people dont know about any play. It’s sad. That does not mean that I dont like the music on the radio but must of the music doesn’t have any substance. Therefore this does not give young people the joys of hearing good mood music of the present.
