Meet Novak, a music lover from Serbia
“I am currently a senior studying Neuroscience with a minor in Health Care Studies at the University of Southern California! My goal is to become a traveling children's mental health professional in areas where there is a large stigma against mental illnesses. Aside from my science-driven aspirations, I love taking pictures (most of my album cover photos are personally taken by me) and going to the beach! Growing up, I was fortunate enough to go to Serbia every summer where my cousins and I would listen to newest Spanish music that came out each year. When I was a freshman in college, I created my first and only Spanish playlist because I loved the beat to the songs and it constantly reminded me of my fun-filled summers I had when I was a kid."
What's the soundtrack to your life?
That's a tough question! I don't specifically have a soundtrack to my life but my favorite song is "Pieces" by Andrew Belle. The beat and voice within the song is very relaxing and I never seem to get tired of it.
What is the most annoying song in the world?
Most annoying would have to be "Friday" by Rebecca Black but I must say that her newer songs are much better!
What’s more important to you? Music; or Lyrics? Why?
Why not both? I believe that both music and lyrics can resonate with how you feel at the moment. For example, if you are upset or happy and you want to listen to specifically what the author wrote, then I would say lyrics since it is tailored to your mood. If you want to hear some good tunes that have a specific beat or rhythm then I would say music!
Andrew Belle, Dawn Golden, and Lorde
