Everyone knows the feeling of finding a song that you simply cannot stop listening to; replaying it over and over, but never getting tired of it. There are certain songs that have truly been helping me cope with the stress and chaos that comes as the semester is winding down. I find myself putting these seven songs on loop, and I hope you give them a listen – maybe you’ll love them just as much as I do!!!

A Dream With a Baseball Player – Faye Webster

I have recently been getting into Faye Webster’s music, and this song is absolutely a standout track in my opinion. It has a really chill vibe that I just love, and the songwriting is so clever. She uses a double entendre within the lyrics, and I was obsessed with it as soon as I heard it. I highly recommend giving this one a listen.

Halah – Mazzy Star

Mazzy Star is a band that I’m not the most familiar with, but I really do love this song. The lead singer’s vocals are incredible, and the song just has a lovely sound. It could be considered somewhat upbeat, but the lyrics are very much centered around a longing feeling for a past love. Anytime this song comes on, I find myself unable to skip it.

II MOST WANTED – Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus

I would be insane to not include a song from Beyoncé’s recent album on this list. This song really is perfect to me; Beyoncé and Miley have an incredible vocal blend together, and it is truly captivating to hear. The song really just feels like a beautiful ode to your best friends, and it is a joy to listen to. I can definitely say that this song is one of my personal favorite collaborations that Beyoncé has done.

Sunshine Baby – The Japanese House

I listened to this song for a long time when it first came out last year, and then I forgot about it for a little while. I rediscovered it this past month and I haven’t been able to stop listening to it. The vocals on this song are unreal, and it just gives off such happy, uplifting vibes. There’s also a vocal feature from Matty Healy, so this song might appeal to any fans of the 1975. 

Good Luck, Babe! – Chappell Roan

Even more so than just the song, Chappell Roan’s entire discography has been a recent fixation of mine. She is currently opening for Olivia Rodrigo on her Guts World Tour, so she is definitely gaining some popularity. Aside from that, she simply makes such fun music; so many of her songs are perfect for dancing and screaming with your best friends. This song is a recent release and is definitely one of my favorites from her discography.

Breaking in Brooklyn – Dogpark

This is a song that I am really excited to share. Dogpark is a small band from my hometown of Richmond, VA, who has been gaining popularity on TikTok. They just released their first EP in January, and it seriously has no skips. I am obsessed with their music; this song in particular is super upbeat and so much fun to listen to. I highly recommend giving their music a listen. 

Magic – Colbie Caillat

I have found myself craving nostalgia as of late, and nothing is more nostalgic for me than Colbie Caillat. I listened to her 2006 album Coco all throughout my childhood, so her music really brings back some sweet memories. This is one of my favorites from that album; it is a really gentle, feel-good song that instantly puts me at ease. If you’ve never listened to Colbie Caillat, especially the aforementioned album, I cannot recommend it enough.
