We all have a song, or multiple songs, that make us feel happy, so I asked a few people which song that is, if they would recommend it to anyone else, how they discovered the song, and I also asked which song makes them feel sad. The song that makes me feel happy is Buzzcut Season, by Lorde. The reason that song makes me feel happy is because the lyrics are interesting, and the music is soothing. I would definitely recommend this song to someone else, in fact, I already have. I discovered the song by finding the album the song is in, in my music. The song that makes me sad is Strawberry Fields Forever, by the Beatles. That song makes me sad because it’s lyrics have a strange, yet deep, meaning.

Anya Kiel says that the song that makes her happy is Bounce Back, by Big Sean. “It's really catchy and I can sing to it.” She said, when I asked why. I then asked if she would recommend it to anyone else “uh, yes.” The way she discovered it was by her friend. I asked what song makes her sad, and she said most pop songs, because they are over rated and make her sad. Leah Davis said that I write sins, not tragedies, by Panic! At the Disco makes her happy, just because. “Yes, always. Everyday of my life,” she stated when I asked if she would recommend it to anyone else. I asked her how she discovered the song, and she just shrugged. And the song that makes her sad is Blackbird, by The Beatles, “because it's a sad song.”

Haylee Peterson said that the song that makes her happy is Boulevard of Broken Dreams, by Green Day, makes her happy because there’s really good lyrics and a good meaning. When asked if she would recommend it to anyone else, she said “heck, yeah.” The way she discovered it was a station on Pandora, and that song came on and she liked it. And the song that makes her sad is, well Boulevard of Broken Dreams, “cause I’m emotional.” Bridget Hickman says that the song that makes her happy is Tear in My Heart, by Twenty One Pilots, “because it’s a cute song.” She said yes when asked if she would recommend it to anyone else. The way she discovered it was by her friend, Shelby. The song that makes her sad is Anathema, also by Twenty One Pilots, because “it’s deep.”

Songs can make us feel tons of different emotions, sometimes a single song can make us feel multiple ones. They make us remember memories by just listening to it, and they can make good memories. Without music, the world would be nearly emotionless. It would be boring.
