Songs to Listen to for Every Mood

The more music I discover, the more I find myself making oddly specific playlists filled with songs to fit that mood. I decided on five moods that I feel most people could relate to, or at least enjoy some of the music. Hopefully, this includes some songs you’ve never heard.

For when you feel at your lowest

Everyone has a sad playlist that hits a little too hard sometimes… right? Here are some songs that never fail to keep me in a sad mood and made me tear up the first few times hearing them. I truly believe lyrics are the most important part of music, especially when it’s a sad song. 

1. “Cringe – Stripped” by Matt Maeson

2. “Lonely” by Noah Cyrus

3. “Malibu Nights” by LANY

4. “Dancing After Death” by Matt Maeson

Artists like Matt Maeson and Noah Cyrus simply have the voice and the melody to always perfect a sad song. Hopefully, you won’t feel the need to use these ones too often, but when you’re feeling down, they’re some good ones.

For when you’re falling, or are already, in love

Quite the change from the last mood, but still a good one. Falling in love is one of the most amazing feelings and finding a song that depicts that is too. Whether you’re currently in love or not, here's a few feel-good songs.

1. “Better Together” by Luke Combs

2. “Tuesdays” by Jake Scott

3. “The Few Things” by JP Saxe

4. “I Don’t Want to Watch the World End with Someone Else” by Clinton Kane

I hope these can pinpoint your current situation or if not, at least set some standards for how you hope to feel one day.

For when you feel like you’re on top of the world

The best feeling in the world. Picture screaming at the top of your lungs, dancing at a concert, in a club or whatever else makes you happy, with just the feeling of pure joy. Here are some of my favourite happy tunes.

1. “Tongue Tied” by Grouplove

2. “Cigarette Daydreams” by Cage the Elephant

3. “The Spins” by Mac Miller

4. “Magic in the Hamptons” by Social House (feat. Lil Yachty)

It feels like it will be quite a while until we’ll be dancing again with friends, but songs like these create a light at the end of the tunnel and lead me to believe we’ll appreciate those moments a whole lot more once they do eventually come.

For when your heart is broken

From the best feeling in the world to the worst. If you relate to these songs on a deeper level, I’m sorry. However, a good breakup song never hurt anyone! If your breakup playlist needs a little more than “drivers license”, here you go.

1. “Alone” by Henry Verus

2. “Fix it to Break it” by Clinton Kane

3. “I Hope” by Gabby Barnett

4. “Golf on TV” by Lennon Stella (feat. JP Saxe)

Despite the need for a good cry once in a while, if your breakup was due to infidelity, check out number four.

For when you need a good scream in the car with your friends

My personal favourite mood. These songs are mostly throwbacks because when it comes to screaming in the car, everyone has to know the lyrics. Hope you enjoy these as much as I do.

1. “All Too Well” by Taylor Swift

2. “Since You Been Gone” by Kelly Clarkson

3. “7 Things” by Miley Cyrus

4. “Stuck in the Moment (Acoustic)” by Justin Bieber

Hopefully, we can all be screaming these on a road trip with our friends again soon. But, if not, there’s no harm in having a jam session in your room alone to these.

Our moods vary as do our music taste, but I hope I was able to cover at least one for you. If you enjoy music as much as I do, I’m sure some of these lyrics will resonate with you. Happy listening!
