Music can make or break a mood. Watched your favourite dramatic movie scene lately? It's made by the score. For me, if I'm doing anything, I need the right soundtrack to keep me on task. From my go-to road trip playlist to the best television soundtrack of all time - I can instantly get in the groove right in my Spotify account.
Here are the 3 playlists on Spotify that get me from working hard to hardly working:
I used to be someone who could not work to music. The vocals would distract me, and I could never comprehend what I was reading due to a strong bass solo. Then Blonde & Bagels introduced me to the Focus Flow playlist and I am forever changed. I always have this playing when replying to emails or working on cover letters. It energizes me while not distracting from my goals. Productivity is up and disruption is down - yes, please!
Gossip Girl Playlists (S1-6)
Gossip Girl is flawed in many ways, but its soundtrack is not. My go-to playlist for morning walks (pretending I'm Serena Van Der Woodsen picking up croissants) and just about any time I need a pick-me-up. The variation of genres keeps it fresh. And there's no Dan Humphrey whining, which is the real seller for me when I need my GG fix.
Life's A Movie, You're the Main Character
TikTok introduced me to these playlists and Ari never disappoints. This is my personal favourite and the new winner of Morgan's Car Playlist - a true honour. The songs instill a feeling of confidence and make for some good car dance numbers. Any playlist that makes me feeling like I'm starring in my own movie will always be my jam.
