My ‘Imaginative Reality’ playlist takes me out of this world
By Alexa Garcia
Last month I used 90 Gigs of data from playing this Spotify playlist I made from my phone. This playlist is titled “Imaginative Reality” because it includes all the songs that can help me escape this world and visit a new one. When I listen to these songs, I forget about all my problems and am able to relax. This playlist consists of ’90s Alternative, Classic rock, Alternative/Indie, Pop, ’80s Alternative, Rock, ’70s Pop, Jazz, ‘80s Rock, and Reggae music.
“Creep” by Radiohead
This song’s low bass line is outstanding.
“Hey You” by Pink Floyd
I like the creepy vibes that this song gives off.
“Control” by Halsey
The powerful lyrics and electronic sounds are my favorite part of this song.
“Pawn Shop” by Sublime
With this song’s dynamic chords in this make it hard to resist moving to the music.
“Garden Grove” by Sublime
The electronic musical interludes in this song are not like nothing else I’ve heard before.
“Another Night On Mars” by The Maine
I enjoy this song because The Maine has created an unusual beginning of many conflicting sounds you may hear on a daily basis that reminds me of chaos as it continues.
“Is There Somewhere” by Halsey
The story hidden within these lyrics is beautiful and inspiring.
“Message In A Bottle” by The Police
The edgy tone to the singer’s voice in this song is very different from newer singers.
“Walking On The Moon – Remastered 2003″ by The Police
I like the bass guitar part in this song.
“Another Brick In The Wall, Pt. 2″ by Pink Floyd
The children’s choir that joins in at the chorus in this rock song keeps things interesting.
“Drive” by Halsey
There is an extended metaphor of driving in a car on a highway in this song that makes figuring out the hidden message fun.
“Pumped Up Kicks” by Foster The People
This song has a rather depressing storyline but an upbeat happy feeling.
“What I Got” by Sublime
It is very hard for someone not to like this with its touch of Reggae and the fast-paced lyrics.
“Lovin’, Touchin’ Squeezin’” by Journey
The warm and powerful chords in this song are settling and relaxing.
“In Bloom – Nevermind Version” by Nirvana
The low countermelody and the singer’s raspy voice in this contribute to this incredible rock song.
“She’s Always a Woman to Me” by Billy Joel
In this one, the positive and inspirational message creates a slow 70s pop song.
“Where The Streets Have No Name” by U2
This song has a slow beginning and develops into a faster pace song with a strong pulse.
“Trouble – Stripped” by Halsey
This is a slow song with beautiful lyrics and an amazing piano accompaniment.
“Wrapped Around Your Finger – Remastered 2003″ by The Police
The uncommon message in this song has an interesting and positive story.
“King of Pain – Remastered 2003″ by The Police
In this song, the singer uses a very raspy voice which is a focal point in this song.
“Yellow” by Coldplay
I would classify this as a rock or pop ballad that is very pretty and makes my heart melt every time I listen to it.
“Wish You Were Here” by Pink Floyd
I the darkness portrayed in this song is what makes this song different.
“Under The Bridge” by Red Hot Chili Peppers
I like this song because it has a very mysterious storyline.
“Viva La Vida” by Coldplay
This song is very different from many others because of the stings included.
“Baba O’Riley” by The Who
The intense beginning in this has many counter melodies.
