MY LIT 20 SONG PLAYLIST



Music is the universal language we all speak and enjoy irrespective of culture, political or social views, social status or religion.
Music speaks to our moods and emotions and influences to a large extent how we feel when we're in love, sad, angry, when we feel lost or confused and need some inspiration/hope. There are so many genres and styles of music out there and each one is unique in its own sound and message. 

I have had to create a playlist of songs that speak to all my moods and listen to them on full volume because that's just how I like to enjoy my music. Below is my lit 20 song playlist but first a DISCLAIMER: you will not see any of today's newer songs/music on this list because firstly I'm old school, second I don't know any of these 'new kids on the block' and thirdly, I personally think that songs from the late 90s and early 2000s are still the best. Feel free to argue with your keypad on that one😛!!


MOOD: HAPPY/FEELING MYSELF

SONGS:  ALL I DO IS WIN (EVERY VERSION) - DJ KHALID
FRESH AZIMIZ - BOW WOW
I'M SO EXCITED - POINTER SISTERS
JUICE - LIZZO
TREASURE - BRUNO MARS

MOOD: PISSED OFF/ANGRY/UPSET

SONGS:   THE TRUTH - TRUTH HURTS
GOOD WOMAN - LA'PORSHA RENAE

MOOD: NEED ENCOURAGEMENT/INSPIRATION

SONGS: KNOWN - TAUREN WELLS

At the moment, these are the songs on rotation and as time goes on, I fall in love with and get inspired by other tunes. My music tastes or preferences are vast and varied, certain styles that I hardly think will appeal to me very often do. A lot of the time, a certain genre will resonate with me depending on my mood at the time, the way it makes me feel, the lyrics, the beat or just simply a combination of all these factors. I've never considered myself to be a music snob but I certainly lean more towards Rap, Rhythm and Blues, Afro Beats & some Country styles than other genres.



So now that I've shared my lit 20 song playlist, what are some songs you have on yours? Share in the comments cuz I like to keep an ear out for tracks that make me go WHOA!!
