It is definitely easy to get caught up in the same songs, genres, and artists for months or years at a time. But let’s be honest, listening to the same playlists every day can get really boring. It is time to get out of your musical rut, and I am here to help!
If you listen to Classic/Pop Rock…
Many people would agree that Classic Rock is amazing, but because of this, these songs can become overplayed. Here are some ideas for new music that you may not have heard before.
Queen - She Makes Me So (Stormtrooper in Stilettos)
It is simple in comparison to many of their epic creations, but it is both sweet and thought-provoking, especially when you begin to ponder the title as a whole.
Oh Honey - Healing
This song has a catchy chorus, and it is great if you enjoy listening to musical duos. They have a Youtube channel where you can find a lot of other songs from the group. The song “Be Okay” is another one to look out for.

The Last Bandoleros - Where Do You Go?
If you enjoy a more modern version of country music, you might like this band. They have the kind of sound you could hear on a popular Country Music station without the “way overplayed” aspect to it.
