Jam Out: A Six-Genre Playlist to Try

Collaborative , Staff Writers

Listening to music allows students to escape from their usual world of stress and pressure from schoolwork and extracurricular activities. Having a diverse playlist is a great way to drown out the annoying sounds of car horns honking in city traffic as you travel to your long-awaited vacation spot. With a varying assortment of harmonies and meaningful lyrics carrying you through the high skies on an airplane or the busy highways in your car, you will never have the chance to fall into boredom.
