Music for Different Moods & Occasions

By Devin Kerns
Distinguished Young Woman of Oklahoma for 2011

 

Music flows through my veins. My favorite feeling in the world is being immersed in a song that has the ability to make you feel what the artist intended the listener to feel. There is nothing more powerful than being moved to tears by a particularly resonant melody. Music exists for all types of feelings and events, so I’ve compiled a brief list of some of my favorites and their corresponding occasions!
To Relax:
“Banana Pancakes” Jack Johnson
“Your Song” Ellie Goulding
“Like a Star” Corinne Bailey Rae
“Quando, Quando, Quando” Michael Buble
“Breakable” Ingrid Michaelson
To Put You in a Good Mood:
“Beauty in the World” Macy Gray
“Higher Love” Steve Winwood
“Mmmbop” Hanson (never fails to put a smile on my face)
“Let’s Just Fall in Love Again” Jason Castro
“You Make My Dreams” Hall & Oates (classic)

To Dance To:
“Forever” Chris Brown
“Church” T-Pain (feat. Teddi Verseti)
“Levels” Avicii
“Wop” J. Dash (Make sure you learn the dance to this!)
“Bottoms Up” Keke Palmer (just too good)

To Cry To:
“Comes and Goes (In Waves)” Greg Laswell
“Washed By the Water (Acoustic Version)” Needtobreathe
“Timshel” Mumford & Sons
“Hallelujah” Leonard Cohen
“Everything” Lifehouse
