Staff Picks: Our favorite genres of music 

For many of us, music is what gets us through a tough study session, relaxes us after a long day or excites us for something new. Music is there when we are on top of the world, or when we are struggling. In other words, music is important to us. 

In this Staff Picks, the Scribe staff share their favorite genres of music. 

Paul Czarnecki | Editor-in-Chief 

Whatever genre the Wiggles and AC/DC overlap in. 

Raven Sanchez | Managing Editor 

I usually go between Alternative Rock, Indie Pop and Top 40 Pop. Sometimes, other genres will be my favorite for a while because I listen to a wide range of stuff, but those are my three go-to’s. I don’t really know why I like those three genres so much. Maybe it’s the variety in all of them. 

Ellie Myers | Associate Editor 

My favorite genre is probably classical. It started when I was a ballet dancer as a little girl, and I would listen to “The Nutcracker” over and over again until it was stuck in my brain forever. 

Luke Swift | Features Editor 

Norwegian Death Metal (No, not really. Don’t put that). 

Lexi Petri | Digital Editor 

Country all the way — it’s a perfect fit for any mood you are in. Happy? Listen to country. Depressed? Listen to country. Heartbroken? Country is the best for that, and no one can change my mind. 

Kate Marlett | Copy Editor 

There are many different genres of music I enjoy, but they all have one thing in common: they make me want to get up and start dancing. So, if you have a classical song that’s fast-paced (Mikhail Glinka’s “Russlan and Ludmilla”), a rap song with a great beat (Shai Linne’s “Turn It Off”) or you offer me one of disco’s finest (ABBA’s “Waterloo”), then I am bound to love it. 

Olivia Nordyke | Reporter 

I love folk punk! It feels really personal, and it usually has really catchy tunes. 

Zee O’Donnell | Reporter 

My favorite genre of music is Taylor Swift! 

Syanna Santiago-Smith | Reporter 

My favorite genre is probably Indie Folk because it reminds me of fall and winter in the mountains.  

Anna Vince | Reporter 

My favorite genre of music is slow rap as I find it very calming and great to make my bed to in the morning! 

Lillian Davis | Photographer 

My favorite genre is alternative rock! I like the sound of it. I played a lot of the game Rock Band as a kid, so it’s had a big influence on me.
