Freshman Rylan Fox looks at Spotify to decide what to listen to. Fox uses Spotify for free streaming.

The hard hits of the bass from a song and the harmonious highs and lows joining together to make different forms of music the way all people want to be liked and accepted in a new place.

“My music taste changes every other song,” social studies teacher Brad Raine said. “My playlist will go from hip hop to Shenia Twain then to Nirvana; it’s all over the place.” 

Freshman Rylan Fox agrees on how music can set different moods.

“Sometimes, you are sad, and you have to listen to that sad music,or you’re happy, and you listen to happy music,” Fox said.

Science teacher Nathan Stevens agrees with mood based music taste.

“My taste doesn’t change other than different days have different moods,” Stevens said.

Raine also takes into consideration the activity taking place.

“Music taste is more mood based or activity based,” Raine said.

Raine is not the only one who likes mood based music, sophomore Veazie Butler also agrees with this taste.

“It just depends on what I’m in the mood for,” Butler said.

Fox has his favorites, but sometimes a few songs from other genres. 

“I mostly listen to rap,” Fox said. “Country is not my favorite couple out there that I’ll rock with sometimes.” 

Stevens also listens to certain genres.

“In general, I listen to a little bit of everything about the only thing I don’t listen to a lot of is country,” Stevens said.
