5-Anthem Lists For 10 Different Moods You Have When You’re Alone

Music is a catalyst for me in so many ways. It triggers, enhances, and animates emotions no matter what mood I’m in. Every situation I find myself in, whether it’s alone or with other people, has a different music style/beat/mood I can imagine playing in the background. These anthem lists aren’t necessarily songs that go together, but at least for me, they all have the same vibe. I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I do!
