Music Monday: Forge through finals with traditional Chinese music

Music Monday features a different category of songs on a weekly basis. Each Monday, Harker Aquila will release seven songs, one song for each day of the week.

As students cram for finals, barely-suppressed panic fills the halls of Harker and kids prepare for one final push of studying before the freedom of summer. During this stressful time, I turn to the old songs of my childhood for comfort. In honor of AAPI month, Harker Aquila brings to you seven traditional Chinese songs. Each track in this playlist inspires nostalgia with soothing melodies or uplifts spirits with upbeat rhythms.

Find the full playlist here:

Monday: Galloping Horses by Taipei Chinese Orchestra

Tuesday: Spring Festival Song by Huan Zhili

Wednesday: Shanghai Tan by Francis Yip

Thursday: King Removes Armor by Chinese Orchestra

Friday: Golden Snake’s Wild Dance by Pure Music

Saturday: Cut of Plum Blossom by Fei Yuqing

Sunday: Moon Represents My Heart by Teresa Teng
