I had an idea for an app long ago. I thought you should be able to rate songs according to the dominant emotion that is evoked with a value from 1-10. Then you could start with what you do not actually want to unload on someone who doesn’t deserve it.
I have a broken ankle so I’m just making playlists. I have my angry one, headed by Lily Allen’s f you. I really liked Randy Rainbow for his cynical take on bad gun control. Tom Lehrer is always good and is also funny. Like colonel Bogies March because it’s defiant. Love Earl and others by the Chicks. Pumped Up Kicks is evil. The Wall works.
Funny has The Blackfly by Wade Hemsworth…it’s clean for kids over 4. Pubic Hair by McClean and McClean and it’s dirty
Lively has Blondie, Straus, Hair, Gotta get up, Abba( for exercise) any swing.
Depresso: Back to Black, Beethoven’s fifth, cough syrup, Leonard Cohen
Rexation or meditation is mostly Deuter, but also some Simon and Garfunkel
Love Ojibway Country by Grit Laskin
True Love: Stand by Me and Pete’s dragon by Helen Reddy( it’s make you cry maybe)
I did my share of recycling music and adding lyrics appropriate to our classroom work. The society for creative anachronism has a clever word for this method.
The idea is that you make your own playlists and if it works right by expressing your real feelings, you do eventually get tired of your emotion and feel free to move on. Only do it if it helps. I have books about it.
