Happy Aries season! I may be more than a little excited because, well, I’m an Aries! To celebrate this vernal time of year I have compiled a list of songs that will have the cardinal fire signs ready to fight, dance, and love!
Written and performed by Joan Jett. Co-written by Ritchie Cordell, Kenny Laguna, and Marty Joe Kupersmith.
Aries has garnered a reputation for being the angriest sign in the zodiac. Maybe that reputation is warranted. Maybe it’s not. Either way, the cardinal fire signs know exactly who they are and they don’t give a “darn” about their bad reputation! Blare this song when you need to remind people that you don’t care about their opinions.
Written and performed by Rachel Platten.
This song is the perfect summer anthem for the warrior with a tough skin, a soft heart, and fire in their bones. The melody helps to ease the restless Aries. While the lyrics reinvigorate your passion for life and desire to fight for what you know is right.
Love is a Battlefield
Written by Mike Chapman and Holly Knight. Performed by Pat Benatar.
One theme that we will be touching on a lot in this playlist is Aries’ unwavering loyalty. They are loyal to their friends and family, but when it comes to their significant others, they are loyal to a fault. Not only will they support their partners, they will fight for their love. For Aries, love can truly be a battlefield. Listen to this song to remind yourself how strong you truly are!
Written and performed by Sara Bareilles.
Sara Bareilles may not be an Aries, but she is a Sagittarius, so she understands the passionate fire signs. This song will speak to Aries’ softer side when it comes to romance. Yes, love is a battlefield, but sometimes we lose that battle. And at times like that, all we can do is listen to this song and feel our emotions.
Written and performed by Katzenjammer.
Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet that is named after the Roman god of war. And Aries is certainly known for its war-like nature. This beautiful and ethereal song is actually a metaphor for battle, and Lady Marlene is supposed to be the personification of War itself. Aries can listen to this song when they are feeling particularly wistful.
Written and performed by Silk Sonic. Co-written by Brody Brown and D’Mile.
The one thing that everyone should know about Aries is that they like to win. Which is why this fun and upbeat song about winning a bunch of money in Las Vegas will get them on their feet and shaking their hips.
Bette Davis Eyes
Written by Donna Weiss and Jackie DeShannon. Performed by Kim Carnes.
Did you know that the fiery queen of stage and screen, Bette Davis, was a bonafide Aries woman? If you are an Aries, this song will stroke your ego in the best way. Listen to this song when you need a confidence boost courtesy of Kim Carnes’ gorgeous, smoky voice.
Fun fact: Bette Davis loved this song because she said it made her grandkids think she was cool!
The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia
Written by Bobby Russell. Performed by Reba McEntire.
Reba McEntire and the original singer of this song, Vicki Lawrence, are both Aries, so naturally, I had to include this song. It’s about a woman getting revenge for her cuckolded brother, and will speak to Aries’ unshakeable loyalty.
Trigger warning: this song deals with some violent themes and if that is not your thing then you should probably skip it.
Written and performed by Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow. Co-written by Mark Williams, Raul Cubina, Roy Lenzo, Denzel Baptiste, David Biral, Kanye West, and Nick Lee.
Aries love to rise beyond the expectations put upon them and prove people wrong. They will fight tooth and nail to prove their worthiness. Lyrics like “get your soldiers, tell ‘em I ain’t laying low” will speak to Aries’ fortitude and optimism. Plus did you know that Lil Nas X is an Aries?!
Written by Otis Redding. Performed by Aretha Franklin.
Like I said earlier in this list, Aries gets maligned as the most tempestuous sign in the zodiac. And because of this, people don’t always treat them with the respect that a human being deserves. Listen to this song by the iconic Aries singer, Aretha Franklin, whenever you need to demand respect.
Written and performed by Katy Perry. Co-written by Mikkel S. Eriksen, Tor Erik Hermansen, Sandy Wilhelm, Ester Dean.
Want to hear a little secret about Aries? They are the biggest crybabies in the entire zodiac. Yes, even more so than water signs. And sometimes they feel like a plastic bag drifting through the wind. On days when the warrior sign feels less than fiery, they can listen to this song to remind themselves of what they are worth.
Marry the Night
Written and performed by Lady Gaga. Co-written by Fernando Garibay.
This song by the delightfully off-beat Aries singer, Lady Gaga, encapsulates everything amazing about the cardinal fire sign. Lyrics like “I’m a warrior queen, live passionately tonight” and “I’m a soldier to my own emptiness, I am a winner” will speak to Aries on a deep spiritual level.
