BHS Students Have Wide Ranging Music Tastes

The great philosopher Plato once said, “Music and rhythm find their way into the places of the soul.” 

Music can express itself for people when they can’t express themselves. Music can change a person’s mood in seconds, but everyone has different music tastes. Imagine a world where every single person listened to the same music, it would be boring and it wouldn’t describe feelings. Overall, 82% of teens said they listen to music every day. It obviously has an impact on them.

Because of this, The Eagle’s Cry decided to go out and find what students are listening to right now. One BHS senior, Corinne Haney, prefers r&b and albums such as “Frank Ocean.” On the other hand, a  BHS Junior, Peter Sigalas prefers the genre rap and albums such as, “The Goat”.  Music interests at the high school vary based on age, gender, style etc. 

This year, many artists released albums that were competing for the top spot at the high school in terms of student taste.

The Eagle’s Cry interviewed students to see their opinions on this year’s music and artists. The questions were album of the year, song of the year, best feature, best new artist,artist of the year and the most underrated song and album of the year. 

BHS sophomore , Richie Calamia claimed, “A lot of great music came out this year, and it was difficult to answer some of these questions.”

Students listen to country, pop, rap but barely any classical, or rock. However the taste of Bethpage highschool was more diverse than expected. So, we decided to give you a sense of the wide range of styles and songs represented:
