Monday Mixtape: 7 Music Playlists to Suit Your Mood
It was September 2011 when I first registered on 8tracks.com. Since then, I became obsessed and clingy with its music. There I found different people mixing different music genres to share with music lovers like me. I have also found a lot of songs that fit my taste and discovered that I am capable of liking/loving other genres outside Rock — especially Alternative Rock which started to conquer the radio wave during the ’90s.
8tracks users are really good in mixing and matching the songs to produce a particular playlist that will suit your mood. Different strokes of music to match the mood you’re currently in. That’s what the website is good at. I was able to find a lot of good music to include to my collection and taught me to listen on the right genre for a particular mood, occasion or event.
As a member for almost 3 years, I have 106 favorite playlists, 458 tracks that I really love and created 3 playlists. The playlists are a mix of rock, jazz, soul, OPM, ambient, hip-hop and everything in between.
For that, I am recommending some of my favorite playlists and maybe you’ll like them too.
The sexy voice of Adam Levine, Chris Martin’s Magical lyrics or the heartbreaking melodies of The Script — these are just snippets of songs you’re going to hear from this playlist. You won’t go wrong for listening to them.
Sunday Morning – Maroon 5
Fix You – Coldplay
A feast of reggae music. If you feel like going to the beach and dancing away under the moonlight, this playlist is a good company. Reggae music always lightens the mood, so better listen to it.
Imagine One Day (so far away) – Mashup-Germany
No Woman No Cry (live) – Bob Marley & The Wailers
The best of the best, that’s what the playlist says so. A collection of best music from different eras. This is a must playlist. Why? You need to listen to the legendary songs! It’s history, you know.
Imagine – John Lennon
Satisfaction – The Rolling Stones
I strongly suggest that you listen to Jazz and Blues once in a while. A liberating one. Perfect on Sundays at home or if you want to experience the music of our grandparents.
You Go To My Head – Billie Holiday
Feeling Good – Nina Simone
The first playlist which made me love the Downtempo, Ambient and Glitch Hop genres. Most of songs in the playlists are just melodies, rhythm and no lyrics at all. It sends you to a different dimension. You might as well close your eyes and feel the music to sink in.
Time Traveling – Me Gusta
Hand-Me-Down – RJD2
Love our own! A collection of OPM music we love. There are mostly are from the ’90s era, and you don’t have a choice but reminisce the good old days.
Himala – Rivermaya
Prinsesa – Teeth
From the title itself, you have a clear idea what you’re going to hear. Just like playlist #6, this playlist will relive the memories of ’90s music we love. So, rock on ’90s kids!
You’re a God – Vertical Horizon
Closing Time – Semisonic
Whatever your current mood is, there is an exact playlist for you.
