And just like that, another astrological season is upon us. In keeping with commemorating each season of the zodiac with its own playlist, this week honors all you Pisces. Pisces are by nature sensitive, thoughtful and introspective; they are often  lost in thought and they definitely remember every ...

With my birthday this weekend, I have been blasting certain songs that get me in the mood to hang out with my friends and enjoy my 24th birthday! There are a mix of songs that have been filling me ears this week and all require some form of dance and grooving. From rap, hip-hop and reggaeton, this mix is b...

Although entirely too short, Black History Month is a wonderful reminder of all of the ways in which the black community has contributed to the world at large. In the 21st century, black culture is popular culture, and those who have turned their experiences into masterful work deserve more recognition. In...

Sometimes there just aren’t enough ways to say, “I love you.” Whether it be to your significant other, your best friend or even your dog, music always seems to be the way to go when we’re at a loss for words. If you need a little extra ‘oomph’ to your “ilysm” text on Valentine’s Day, here are...

Road trips are often a coin toss. Depending on where you're going, who you’re with and how you prepare to entertain yourself, they can be either a recipe for disaster or success. Seeing as much of my weekend was spent at the Iowa Caucus, I had to roll through my many road trip playlists to determin...

Tuesday marked the beginning of Aquarius season, and since I am a thorough stereotype of a 20-year-old, today marks the first Zodiac DeJamz! For each of the 12 zodiac signs, I will pick songs that are evocative of their traits and/or by some famous members of the sign. For reference, your average Aqu...

In times of social unrest, art often takes a more political turn, reflecting the distress of the times. Music is perhaps the largest medium for protest, with some of the most iconic songs of the last decades being a result of an unjust world.

Welcome back, Blue Demons! I hope everyone had a wonderful, relaxing break and is ready to read more of my ramblings on music. I know I am! In thinking about what I should be the first DeJamz theme of the decade, only one came to mind: new beginnings. If anyone else had a horrendous 2019 and is hoping...

You may be looking at the album covers and be thinking that it’s too early for Christmas music. Well, to that I say: too bad. I will field no hatred for me listing my favorite Christmas songs before Thanksgiving, because what am I supposed to do? List my favorite Thanksgiving songs? Don’t make me laugh...

While it’s not quite Halloween yet, I see no point in holding off in sharing my favorite spooky jams. There are the quintessential Halloween songs—The Monster Mash, Thriller, etc.— but that’s not this list. For this week’s DeJamz, I’ll include songs that are spooky on a deeper level, because...
