On any given day, I am frantically scrambling to get my boys to school on time before I start working (cue The Beatles’ song “Help!” playing in the background) until, at some point, I’m finally enjoying my re-heated cup of coffee at my desk (cue Harry Styles’ “Watermelon Sugar” in the foreground). My mom mood—and, subsequently, my music choices—fluctuate depending on how my day goes. With the help of my go-to streaming platform, TIDAL, I can easily create the soundtrack to my day by curating eclectic playlists predicted by any one of my several mom moods.

Music can comfort us, uplift us, and remind us of our purpose. Never underestimate the power of a great tune that captures all our feelings with each lyric, melody, and beat. My parents had to rely on albums and CDs, but now we seemingly have the entire musical world at our fingertips thanks to streaming platforms like TIDAL. With instant access to over 90 million songs and more than 450,000 videos, TIDAL can harmoniously deliver the soundtrack of a day in a mom’s life. 

 

We know moms may not always have that extra time in their schedule to create the perfect playlist, so we’ve done that for you in partnership with TIDAL.
