Poppin’ Playlist #1:7th grade Homeroom 903!

Kaitlyn D. and Luigina I.

Music is vital to various people, whether it is for heartbreak, homework, or hard partying. It is even called “the medicine of the soul” due to the fact that it influences our emotions. Music is also proven to help with brain development, especially in the hippocampus. Research has shown that listening to music can reduce anxiety, blood pressure, and pain as well as improve sleep quality, mood, mental alertness, and memory too. We interviewed some peers in our homeroom class and created a playlist that could be the medicine for your soul as well.


Introducing period one’s poppin’ playlist. My personal favorite song is “Beggin’ “by Måneskin, a pop song, which turned out to be the most popular genre in the playlist. It was a close win, country lost by two songs right behind pop, and rap lost to country by one. The pop songs consist of “Party in the USA,” “All I Want for Christmas is You,” “Stay,”” Dora” theme song, and last but not least, “Beggin’.”. The country genre playlist consists of “Mama’s House,” “Dirt Road Anthem,” and “She’s Country.” In last place we have rock, which consists of “God Gave Rock ‘N’ Roll to You” and “Money for Nothing. As you can see, our class has a varied taste in music that illustrates their poppin’ personalities.”



While asking our classmates for their favorite songs, they often had difficulty choosing one. Picking from approximately 35 million songs that exist as of right now is tough. When asking, they typically responded with “can you give me some time to think about it?” or “I have many”. However, for some of the students it was quite easy because they had a noisy mind in which a song was playing. A noisy mind is a brain that is overactive or there’s activity going on that’s not directed towards anything. This can happen when a kid’s bored, or it can be part of their everyday life. I occasionally have a noisy mind, usually thinking about schoolwork/clubs or food or a song one of my friends mentioned. It is often just your favorite part of the song because it is hard to memorize the whole song.


In conclusion, it was a very interesting journey to see what everybody’s favorite music was. The diversity of music taste in scholars is lit. All the sick beats and calming rhythms are sure to make it into your top 3 favorite playlists at least. We want to know, what’s your favorite song? What genre does it fall into? Do you have a noisy mind often?
