Wellbeing
is
defined
by
White
(2010)
as
“doing
good

feeling
well”
and
incorporates
three
qualities:
positive
charge,
holistic
outlook
and
sustaining
priorities
and
perspectives
(White,
2010).
As
DeNora
(2000)
theorises
we
can
use
music
as
a
material
for
building
and
shaping
this
identity
as
these
priorities
and
perspective
reflect
one’s
real
self,
and
studies
show
that
mood,
as
induced
by
music,
might
directly
alter
the
way
you
perceive
the
world
(Jolij
&
Meurs,
2011).
Often
adolescents
experience
conflict
when
trying
to
assert
their
priorities
and
perception
(Csikszentmihalyi
&
Larson,
1986).
These
conflicts
are
reflected
in
internal
thoughts
that
create
negative
charge
and
thus
decrease
people’s
wellbeing.
The
goal
of
this
playlist
is
to
minimise
internally
conflicting
thoughts
to
make
the
listener
feel
at
ease
with
themselves,
ultimately
aiding
in
the
process
of
self-­‐discovery.
Self-­‐discovery
is
a
series
of
events
whereby
a
person
determines
how
they
feel
about
certain
issues
and
priorities
individually,
without
following
those
of
others.
This
self-­‐discovery
relates
to
wellbeing
as
it
gives
rise
to
an
individual
set
of
priorities
and
perspectives
that
maintain
a
rounded
outlook
and
positive
charge.
By
feeling
at
ease
with
themselves,
the
listener
will
feel
more
positive
and
confident
to
crease
these
views.
The
music
is
used
as
a
therapeutic
tool
to
aid
in
the
self-­‐discovery
of
the
listener.
The
first
song
creates
an
external
stimulation
to
distract
and
create
an
optimistic
view
so
the
listener
can
escape
and
avoid
uncomfortable
and
unwanted
moods.
The
next
songs
help
listeners
seek
validation
for
what
they
think
and
feel
about
themselves,
others,
and
society,
assuring
them
that
they
are
not
emotionally
alone
(Schwartz
&
Fouts,
2004).
The
final
songs
serve
a
uplifting
effect,
which
relieves
unhappiness,
anger,
or
anxiety.
1. Mafia
R.
(2010).
The
Big
Bang.
[CD]
Atlantic
Records:
New
York
My
playlist
starts
with
“The
Big
Bang”
by
Rock
Mafia.
The
song
repeats
the
lyrics
“the
big,
big
bang”
which
is
suggestive
of
an
explosion
that
creates
or
changes
life,
a
catalyst
for
change
evoking
thoughts.
The
immense
chorus
and
upbeat
tempo
build
a
positive
mood
(Khalfa,
Roy,
Rainville,
Dalla
Bella,
&
Peretz,
2008),
and
although
there
is
no
current
research
to
prove,
the
whistling
in
the
background
seems
to
creates
a
familiarity
and
casualness
to
the
song,
allowing
the
listener
to
open
up
to
thoughts,
emotions
and
sensations
with
ease.
Optimism
is
the
tendency
to
expect
the
best
possible
outcome
and
dwell
on
the
most
hopeful
aspects
of
a
situation.
The
lyrics
“the
reason
I’m
alive”
allude
to
the
change
being
reason
to
live,
providing
additional
context
to
build
optimism.
Creating
this
initial
mood
of
optimism
is
important,
as
positive
moods
have
been
demonstrated
to
have
a
strong
constructive
effect
on
perceptual
processing
(Jolij
&
Meurs,
2011).

Club

On
The
Love
Club
EP
[CD]
New

Universal
Music
New
Zealand
Limited
(2012)
The
Love
Club
by
Lorde
enables
the
listener
to
relate
and
through
these
affiliations
with
artists,
multiple
identities
are
appropriated.
The
lyrics
denounce
the
stereotypes
and
labels
that
come
from
society
“I’m
sick
of
words
that
hang
above
my
head”
and
the
attitude
that
Lorde
pours
into
her
vocal
delivery
develops
a
criticism
of
these
social
constraints,
emphasised
by
the
mockery
like
tone
of
the
swaying
vocals
in
the
background.
Different
social
conflicts
are
explored,
and
the
listener
can
confirm
their
validity
(Small,
1999).
The
very
strong
beat,
and
short
and
sharp
lead
vocals
give
the
listener
strength
to
affirm
their
problems
and
the
listener
can
feel
at
ease
with
their
internal
conflict,
knowing
they
aren’t
experiencing
them
alone.

Talk

Cheap
(Single)
[Recorded
by

Australia:
Future
Classic
(2013)
‘Talk
Is
Cheap’
ensures
a
positive
mood
while
expressing
familiar
and
universal
experiences.
The
kick
drum
sounds
have
been
layered
with
a
sub
bass
resulting
in
less
of
an
attack
sound
but
a
smoother
well-­‐blended
sound,
which
along
with
its
sensual
saxophone
interjections,
make
the
song
sound
charming,
creating
a
more
relaxed
emotion.
The
lyrics
allow
the
listener
to
relate
to
the
ups
and
downs
of
relationships
and
the
song
finishes
with
an
assertion
of
independence,
“No,
you
gotta
feel
it
on
your
own”.
As
Firth
(1996)
puts
it,
the
listener
can
now
struggle
against
existing
constructions
of
a
particular
identity,
for
example
their
conflicting
internal
thoughts,
by
contesting
negative
images
with
positive
ones.

Group

By
listening
to
music
we’re
experiencing
ourselves
in
a
different
way
(Firth,
1996)
and
identities
reflect
who
we
would
like
to
be,
not
necessarily
just
who
we
are
(Russell,
1997).
This
song
helps
create
this
part
of
the
identity
by
encouraging
an
independent
stand
by
overcoming
struggles.
The
lyrics
describe
an
internal
conflict
about
not
being
able
to
obtain
goals
in
life:
“Lately
I
been,
I
been
losing
sleep,
dreaming
about
the
things
that
we
could
be”.
