Meet Christopher Pryde, 23 years old from Halifax, NS.
“I made this playlist because sometimes you’re having a rough day and need some badass songs that musically panders to your mood, but lyrically helps uplift you. I’m pretty sure I made it right after a messy breakup. It’s a pretty eclectic mix of pop and top 40 with some more obscure artists.”
What is the soundtrack to your life?
Either “That’s Life” by Frank Sinatra, or “Lost on You” by LP
Lana Del Rey. I listened to 224 hours of her on Spotify alone in 2018.
If you had the chance to interview an artist, who would it be? (Dead or alive)
It would definitely be Lana Del Rey.
What is the best concert you have ever been to?
Once again, Lana haha. She has such an incredible presence live, and her vocals are next level.
Do you have a favorite quote?
“I only know how to be me, so that’s what I’m going to do.”
Do you play any instruments? If not, any you would love to learn?
I’ve learned piano, flute, violin, and cello. I only still regularly play cello, and the rest are more just party tricks at this point.
Do you have a life slogan?
“Make the most of it.” Whatever it may be, maximize the opportunity because we only get one go.
What is the most annoying song in the world?
“Old Town Road” by Billy Ray Cyrus. I’m not saying it’s a bad song, I just can’t get behind it.
What’s more important to you? Music; or Lyrics? Why?
Both are important, but can work independently. So many songs with incredible scores sound equally good when sung a cappella, and songs that are just melodies can still make you feel sad or hyped or whatever the artists goal was. I personally like songs with lyrics and music, the chorus to Video Games by Lana is a perfect example of lyrics and music working together.
