NWS’s Music Favorites

Selome G. ‘25 and I, JoJo BP. ‘25 know that music is really important to so many people in our community. “It’s very useful; it’s a good mood setter. Like, if I want to do homework or have fun with friends,” Eila P. ‘25. Serina V. ‘25 said that listening to music “brings you some kind of sense of joy and some kind of energy.” Many students agreed with Serina, that music “brings you some kind of sense of joy and some kind of energy you’re looking for.” 

There were a large variety of genres mentioned in the responses to the google form that we sent out and the interviews we both did. When asking about genres in our interviews  Serina V. ‘25 told us that the kind of music she listens to “is diverse, and in language too”. When I asked Roan K. ‘24 what kind of music he listened to he said “mostly hiphop and rap, and a little bit of pop.” Our conclusion though was that, the two most popular genres at our school are hiphop and rap. Knowing the diversity of music genres this school listens to, I sent out a form to the school that asked people what kind of music they enjoy listening to. We created a playlist based on all of the answers we got from the form and interviews.

 We hope you enjoy our playlist of NWS’s favorite songs!
