Ah, music. Music is a universal language. It can express love, heartache, physical pain, anger, misery, depression, happiness, etc. With that being said, I absolutely cannot imagine a day without music. So below are some mini-playlists for a select set of emotions. Creating these sets is easier said than done. I already have over 8,000 songs on my MP3 player, and I add more and more every week. Which means, this page will be constantly updated as I find more and more songs to add to each of these lists.
