The music industry has put Tualatin High School in its feels. When students were asked what songs they’ve had on repeat, almost every answer was the same. Between Taylor Swift’s re-release of Red (Taylor’s Version) and Adele’s new album 30, there is a plethora of songs that bridge emotion and music. The long-awaited release and re-release of these two albums has left us with crumpled tissues and a hatred for Jake Gyllenhaal.


“All Too Well” from Red (Taylor’s Version) by Taylor Swift

The 10-minute version of “All Too Well” is an extended and bitter revamp of the 2012 classic. This masterpiece leaves listeners with chills as the lyrics provoke emotions about heartache and power within relationships. 


“Oh My God” by Adele 

The upbeat rhythm of “Oh My God” is a contrast to other more somber songs on Adele’s new album 30. Kudos to anyone who can make it through this song without tapping their foot or bobbing their head to the beat: impossible. 


“All I Want For Christmas Is You” by Mariah Carey 

Whether you’ve been listening to Christmas music since September or are just now getting wrapped up in the holiday spirit, this song is a staple for any Christmas playlist. Even 27 years later, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” still appears on The Billboard Top 100 every December. 


“Neon Guts” by Lil Uzi Vert (feat. Pharrel Williams)

TikTok truly has an influence on what we add to our playlists, and when songs are trending on our “For You Page,” we can’t get them out of our heads. Whether you’ve rediscovered “Neon Guts” or you’ve just heard it for the first time, you can’t deny the pairing of Uzi and Pharrel is utter perfection.
