Most people have a favorite classic song. Whether it be mid-90s NSync or The Doors in the early 60s, everyone has a song they like the most.
“My favorite classic song would have to be Fly Me to the Moon by Frank Sinatra,” sophomore Brandon Garcia said. “An artist I don’t really like in this generation is Miley Cyrus.”
Music allows people to be able to express themselves in a way that can be shared with others.
“I guess Highway to Hell by AC/DC would have to be an all time favorite song for me,” sophomore Maria Garza said. “Babe, I’m Going to Leave You by Led Zeppelin is also a great mix. Run Away by Front Porch Step and It’s Over When it’s Over by Falling In Reverse are also really close to me now-a-days.”
Without music in people’s lives, we wouldn’t be in the same societal place that we are now. Music enhances the feelings you wouldn’t normally express and gives you a sense of belonging when you met others who enjoy the same artist or genre.
“Hooked on a Feeling by Blue Swede is definitely one of the songs that gets me in a better mood when I’m down,” senior Matthew Dixon said. “Careless Whisper by George Michael also reminds me of the people that I care about very much for some odd reason. I have no idea why, though.”
Music connects us with the people all around the world. It’s a universal device that can heal pretty much any situation. So whether you like 80s techno or 2000’s hip hop, it’s all good. Music lets you be yourself, which is all you’ll ever need.
