This week our “Heard it through the GrapeVINE” star is Chloe Lazar ‘19 from Holden, Massachusetts. When not on the tennis courts with Fairfield’s club tennis team or boxing with the boxing club, Chloe is listening to music. When she puts in her headphones anything could be playing from the Beatles to EDM.
Chloe first started listening to music in 6th grade when she learned how to play the violin.
“I listened to mainstream music at first, and then I would learn all the lyrics and sing along. By 9th grade I got a little more tasteful in my music.”
Her taste in music is constantly evolving, though. “Everyone’s taste in music is changing — as people change, their taste in music changes.” Chloe believes that music has the power to be incredibly influential in people’s lives, changing their moods, opinions and perception of the world. Here are her top songs:
- “Dance Along” by Early Hours — “I love this song because no matter what type of mood I am in it never fails to make me happier and makes me want to get up and dance along.”
- “When Did Your Heart Go Missing?” by Rooney — “I have loved this song for so long because it has an infectious tune that gets into anyone who is listening to it.”
- “Only the Good Die Young” by Billy Joel — “The first time I heard this song was when my dad showed it to me and I have loved it ever since. It is basically the motto to my life.”
- “Cold Cold Man” by Saint Motel — “I have loved this song since the first time I heard it. It has been on repeat ever since and never gets old.”
- “All That and More (Sailboat)” by Rainbow Kitten Surprise — “When I first heard this song I actually didn’t like it that much. Then I heard it again and questioned how I could have missed its catchy tune that just puts a smile on your face.”
- “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen — “It is an anthem. That’s all I have to say.”
- “Come On Eileen” by Dexys Midnight Runners — “I first heard this song with my dad and I loved it. Then sadly, I forgot about the song for a while until I heard it this past summer. It is now on repeat and never gets old.”
