Synesthesia Playlists: YELLOW

Playlist 3 of 10.


As someone who works a desk job collecting data for the company and spends a large amount of time in the car each week, music, podcasts, and audiobooks have quickly become one of my best companions.

But music and other auditory mediums have always had a different feeling to me, representing more than just "background noise". In recent years, I've come to the conclusion that it may be a form of synesthesia.

Synesthesia can be defined as the production of a sense impression relating to one sense or part of the body by stimulation of another sense or part of the body.

According to Color Psychology, yellow means joy, radiance, warmth, inspiration, enlightenment, cheerfulness and optimism.

YELLOW is playlist three, and the longest, of ten. Below is a playlist of songs that feel incredibly yellow.

For optimum quality, please listen through headphones and in the order it is presented.

Be Okay - Oh Honey


"Can't complain about much these days, I believe we'll be okay."

May you always lead from the beating in your chest
May you be treated like an esteemed guest
May you get to rest, may you catch your breath"

Look how they shine for you

Down In The Dumps - Walk The Moon


"Because I won't let you bring me back, bring me back down in the dumps

"Yeah It's a real good life
Cause I got you by my side
And there's a sun in the sky
Yeah it's a real good life"



"I got dreams that keep me up in the dead of night
Telling me I wasn't made for the simple life
There's a light I see, but it's far in the distance
So I'm asking you to show me some forgiveness
It's all for you in my pursuit of happiness"



"Can't say I'm perfect, but I certainly tried
To be joyful, joyful
Joyful and happy, sunny and bright"

I Don't Wanna Be Sad - Simple Plan

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
