Music Survey and Results

This semester, the journalism class decided to start off our first publication of The Knightly News with a topic that we knew would interest the whole student body: music.

The results of the survey revealed that ICS high school students enjoy listening to a wide range of beats- from R&B soul to the infamous K-pop. I admit that I probably should have included at least two more genres for you guys to choose. The ‘other’ listed on the survey took up nearly half of the votes with 41% of the students saying that their choice of music did not lie in Classical, Pop, Hip hop, and so on. I’m pretty sure that at least 20% of the ‘other’ on there was K-pop. And probably Indie.

Not surprisingly, I also noted that there were a few mainstream artists that were mentioned more than a couple times. Some of the most listened to artists, according to this survey, are: Kelly Clarkson, Avicii, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, The Script, Infinite, One Republic, One Direction, Coldplay, and Imagine Dragons. I’ve made a playlist of all the songs listed below.  I strongly suggest to stop and listen while you study.  I’ve enjoyed listening to some interesting and different kinds of music these last couple of days. Well, here are the songs!
