The Best Songs Playing during New York Fashion Week, straight from Spotify’s Playlist

September has arrived, which can only mean one thing: New York Fashion Week has begun! The shows began on Wednesday, September 7, and will continue until September 14, allowing fashion enthusiasts to see the fabulous new collections from the world’s top designers. Even if your name isn’t Anna Wintour, you can watch Michael Kors, Lafayette 148, Vivienne Westwood, and other household names debut their latest collections—and get some killer wardrobe inspiration.

While your gaze is fixed on the runway, something else is going on in the background that is influencing your feelings about the latest collection. Naturally, music is important during Fashion Week because it can set the tone for an entire show. Designers take great care in selecting the best bangers to serve as the memorable soundtrack to their collection debuts. Is there anything new on the menu this year? Or is it elegant? The music will provide a significant hint.

Furthermore, because music and memories are inextricably linked, choosing the right song can help both critics and shoppers remember their favorite clothing and accessories—even after a full week of fashion overload. The music of New York Fashion Week is never chosen by chance but rather with care. And it frequently includes the most recent fire tracks. These beat-heavy, lyric-light bangers from NYFW—found on Spotify’s official NYC Fashion Week 2022 playlist as well as some previous seasons’ soundtracks—are ideal for listening to while working, exercising, or dancing/trying on clothes in your own runway of a bedroom. But be careful—they’ll stay with you all day.

    3 Biggest Highlights from the AMAs

    This Sunday was the night of the year for music fans all across America, as it was the night of the highly anticipated American Music Awards. There is lots to talk about after this year’s event, from touching tributes, to controversy, to one artist’s moment of glory. Here are the three biggest moments from this year’s AMAs that everyone is talking about.

    Exploring the Magic of Movie Music

    I once had a music teacher tell me that music is one of the greatest things to study, because from it we can learn math, science, history, and art. It uses math to create beautiful scores, and from it we can learn about sound waves and resonance. Music’s role in society throughout all of humanity, lends itself to a rich history that we can learn from, and of course it is a form of art. Because it is such a rich and expansive medium, it lends itself to many aspects of society, including film. Music has a transcendent quality that makes it the perfect match for film as a form of escapism. The transcendent qualities of music enable it to create an ambiance, influence people’s mood, and foreshadow story, unlike any other tool at filmmakers disposal.

    Tukoh Taka – Did the FIFA 22 song deserve all that backlash?

    The song has been getting a lot of backlashes for different reasons.
    The song was heavily compared to Shakira’s previous World Cup songs, “Waka Waka” and “La La La.” With tons of Tik Toks asking for Shakira back.
    While the audience admit that the song is catchy through the comments and video on Tik Tok, they are also criticizing the song for lacking… well lyrics.
    the song consists of a verse of lyrics for each Myriam, Nicki, and Maluma, the rest is vocals, vibes, and repeating the phrase “Tukoh Taka.”

    The Influence of Music Award Shows

    It is officially the season of award shows. From the Grammys to the AMAs, there are so many different kinds of award shows, but why are these shows so crucial for the music industry? The recent generations of music have made a huge impact on the world. We have advanced technologically, and our entertainment industry seems like it is at its peak. It seems like the world has developed a big interest in fame and popularity as well. Award shows allow people to share a platform of change and recognition, not just in Hollywood, but all over the world. They are the biggest events of the year since they are basically how we define entertainment.

    How Has Latin Music Influenced American Popular Music

    There is no denying the significant impact Latin music has had on American popular music. This is demonstrated by the popularity of Latin-influenced music genres like salsa and Latin pop. Numerous American hip-hop and pop musicians have also sampled Latin music or worked with Latin musicians, providing additional proof of the impact of Latin music on American popular music.
    The early 20th century saw a large influx of immigrants from Latin America, which is when Latin music first started to have an impact on American popular music. Their own music, which they brought with them, started to be heard in American cities with sizable Latin American populations.

    How Access to Technology has Killed the Pop Star

    Thanks to the age of social media and the internet, our world is changing faster than ever before. Technology has sparked globalization and trends in everything from fashion to food, to home repair. One area in which technology has been particularly influential though, is music. Technology has changed so much in recent years that music production, something which used to only be accessible to major record companies and very rich and very famous artists, is now available to just about anyone with a smartphone. The age of technology and accessibility has caused a surge in music and artists, and yet- simultaneously- brought about an end to the age of the “pop star.”
