Do People Look like the Music they Listen to?

Music Taste vs. The way People Look. Is everyone predictable?

According to a recent MHS survey, most students feel as if their music taste matches the way they look. However, 17 students feel as if they don’t match the description. Here’s a further look into them. 

The Music Inside the Airpods: 

Savannah Gutierrez: People think I listen to rap. I am a bit of everything. Lately, though, I have been listening to country. 

Savannah  Gutierrez’s Top Five

  1. Ain’t always the cowboy- Jon Pardi
  2. Last night- Morgan Wallen
  3. I know? -Travis Scott
  4. 5-1-5-0- Dierks Bently 
  5. Surround sound- JID

Interviewer: What do you think Emmanual Garcia-Gomez listens to?

Savannah: R&B. He has a cool style and he likes to stand out. He is just a guy you can vibe with. He looks like he loves Drake. I don’t know something about him just gives me Drake. 

Emmanuel: I don’t know what I look like I listen to. Probably R&B. But I listen to alternative more often. Emmanuel’s top five

  1. First Time- Bruno Mars
  2. LA- Brent Fayiaz 
  3. Skyline to Frank Ocean
  4. Fashion Killer- Asap 
  5. My favorite part- Mac Miller

Interviewer: What do you think Vanessa Mendoza listens to?

Emmanuel: “She wears a lot of weekend merch so them, and rap definitely,” (He is biased due to them knowing each other)

Vanessa Mendoza: I think I look like I listen to a lot of Tyler the Creator, Bad Bunny, and Lana Del Ray. Although, primarily, I would say I listen to more R&B and rap

Vanessa’s top five

  1. La Ultima Vez- Ivan Cornejo
  2. Gang Over Luv- Brent Faiyaz
  3. Asmr- 21 Savage 
  4. Me acostumbre A Lo Bueno- Fuerza Regida 
  5. Practice- Drake

Interviewer: What do you think Savannah listens to?

Vanessa- I think she listens to Kali Uchis, Tyler the Creator, and The Weekend

Though this is only three MHS students, it is clear to see that not everyone fits the stereotype of what music is behind their AirPods. Give all these songs a listen and tell us what you think!

    Good article, Kaitlyn. You just never know. As a more mature person (meaning older), I’m not familiar with a lot of the artists mentioned in the article. I enjoy most genres of music. However, I think a lot of people would be surprised to learn that occasionally I enjoy listening to songs by Soundgarden, Nickelback, and Buck Cherry.
