Stampede Staff Playlist: March Edition
Here are some songs to spice up your month! These songs have been picked and recommended by the Stampede. Compiled in this list, each song is described and recommended in detail.
On the Ground by Rosé
Rosé, a member of the popular K-pop girl group BLACKPINK, released her first solo song. It is one of the most awaited songs and became No.1 trending on YouTube in the first couple hours of its release. I think “On the Ground" is an amazing song with a great message. The message of being true to oneself and having everything you need already within yourself is beautifully presented in Rosé’s song....
Thumbs by Sabrina Carpenter
Sabrina Carpenter is one of the few singers in which I enjoy all her songs. The song “Thumbs” is part of the “Evolution” album, which is also one of my favorite albums from Carpenter's discography. I thought that this song has the most interesting lyrics and unique beats. I thought that the family tree that was introduced in the beginning of the song was a fun puzzle to solve. I remember sit...
So Am I by Ava Max
I first got introduced to Ava Max’s music through this song. It only took me less than 30 seconds to love this song, and for the rest of the week, I would only listen to this song. I really enjoyed how the theme of this song flowed so well with the beats. A song about self acceptance with the genre of electropop is one of the best combinations. Also, the best part is that throughout the song, th...
Least Favorite Only Child by Leanna Firestone
Leanna Firestone has been one of my favorite artists the past few months. Her typical song writing style focuses on relationships based off of different animes and is upbeat and centered around love. “Least Favorite Only Child” is different in the best way possible. Leanna touches on not wanting to die, but wanting to do something drastic enough that she is finally seen. When I hear it I feel see...
Dial Tones by As It Is
Dial Tones comes from As It Is’ first full length album “Never Happy, Ever After.” Dial Tones is one of my all time favorite songs, mostly during the pandemic. It reminds me of standing shoulder to shoulder to strangers and jumping up and down. It makes me feel full of life. The upbeat rhythm and the devastating lyrics combine to make the perfect song to jam out to either alone in your roo...
Chicken Tendies by Clinton Kane
While the name might throw a few people off, Chicken Tendies has nothing to do with chicken tenders at all. The first time I heard this song was a 15 second clip on TikTok and I immediately fell in love with it. The song is relieving for someone experiencing heartbreak and is about accepting that heartbreak. The whole song feels like a sigh of relief. ...
Symphony for a Spider Plant by Mort Garson
Plantasia, the album this song was released within, is something of a 70s curiosity. “Music for Plants and the People who Love Them”, the album was created with the intention that playing it near houseplants would enable them to grow quicker. While this is, in my opinion, quite hogwash, it does result in a unique 70s Moog synthesizer sound that really cannot be described in words. The entire album is i...
Neglected Space by Imogen Heap
“Neglected Space” is not so much a song as it is an auditory poem. Most of it is sung in the spoken word, rising and falling in momentum in a very atmospheric way. It gives the impression of uncovering ancient ruins, which fits perfectly with the subject of the song. “Neglected Space” is spoken from the perspective of an abandoned, decaying house, pleading with its listener to let it live and...
Burn Him Down by The Kitsch Club
Woodsy Owl is one of the United States Forest Service’s lesser-known official mascots, often used to discourage littering and encourage keeping forests clean. However, Woodsy is a branded mascot, and many mascots share a curious trait: when they are outdated or showing signs of wear, they must be destroyed beyond recognition before they are discarded. This way, people cannot get the costume secondha...
Cherry by Harry Styles
The “Fine Line” album has been praised by many, even one of the songs, “Watermelon Sugar,” received a Grammy Award for Pop Solo Performance, but there is one song that I do not see a lot of people acknowledging, and that song is “Cherry.” This song managed to be simplistic and be able to tell a story beautifully, which can be difficult to find from more well known artists. ...
Paper Bag by Fiona Apple
No matter how many times I was recommended by people to start listening to Fiona Apple’s music, I never got around to it until pretty recently, and the song that really drew me in was “Paper Bag.” This song perfectly showcases her range. While it has been stated in her about section on Spotify that she does not feel like she truly belongs to a specific genre, “Paper Bag '' was able to capture the ...
Supercut by Lorde
“Supercut” is a song in Lorde’s second album, “Melodrama.” While Lorde’s first album was able to produce major hits like “Royals,” “Team,” and “Ribs,” “Melodrama” did not receive the same appreciation, but that does not mean that it deserved that fate. Unlike Lord’s first album that talks about the fear of growing up, “Supercut” talks about how Lord took her teenage...
