Libra season is here! What better way to celebrate than with a harmonious playlist that will make you want to sway to the music?
For fun, try to find the hidden bonus track in the list.
We Can Work It Out
Written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Performed by The Beatles
We are starting this list off with the Fab Four! Libras are lovers and peacekeepers, so this is the perfect song to appeal to those sensibilities. Libras know that life is very short and there’s no time for fussing and fighting!
Also, John Lennon is a Libra and Paul McCartney may not be a Libra, but he is an air sign.
Written by Danny Elfman and performed by Catherine O’Hara
Scorpio often gets associated with being the “Halloween zodiac sign,” but we must not forget that Libra heralds the spooky season. This song speaks to Libra’s loving yet uncertain nature. Also, Sally would totally be a Libra, am I right?
Don’t Know Why
Written by Jesse Harris and performed by Norah Jones
Who knows why we do anything in this wonderful world? Libras are incredibly sweet and affectionate people. But they are also incredibly ambivalent. They are often struggling with mixed emotions, especially when it comes to matters of the heart. So give this song a listen, Libra. It won’t help you make a decision, but it will help you come to terms with your own indecisiveness.
Sister Golden Hair
Written by Gerry Beckley and performed by America
Sometimes Libra’s uncertainty can make them one poor correspondent and too, too hard to find. So I put this song on the list to inspire them to pursue the one who has been on their mind. Since Libras are air signs that are represented by scales, hopefully with the help of these lyrics, they can find someone who will meet them in the middle and meet them in the air.
Written and performed by Little Mix. Co-Written by Thomas Barnes, Peter Kelleher, Ben Kohn, Iain James, Erika Nuri, Michelle Lewis, Mischke Butler, Heidi Rojas.
Libras are known to be social butterflies, so I had to pair them with this fun bubblegum pop song from the British girl group Little Mix. When the air sign listens to this song, their feet won’t be able to touch the ground.
Rock Paper Scissors
Written by Robert Ellis Orrall and performed by Katzenjammer
Having to make a tough decision can put a lot of stress on the cardinal air sign. This song, sung by the Norwegian band Katzenjammer, can remind Libra that whatever choice they make will be the right one for them at that moment.
Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is a Season)
Written by Pete Seeger. Performed by The Byrds
The cardinal sign will appreciate the diplomatic tone of this song. But that is not the only reason it’s made it onto the list. Libras crave balance, and part of achieving that much-desired balance is realizing that there is a time for everything. Lyrics like “a time to kill, a time to heal, a time to laugh, a time to weep,” will resonate with the harmonious air sign.
Written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey and performed by Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta
Libra, you are constantly seeking a balance between your ascetic and amorous tendencies. This song finds that balance by juxtaposing Sandy’s wholesomeness with Danny’s… shall we say lasciviousness? This song is also perfect for the playlist because Olivia Newton-John is a Libra!
I Can’t Love You
Written and performed by Adore Delano
I could not write a Libra playlist without including a song by the beautiful and talented Adore “I’m A Leeeebruuuh” Delano! This song will resonate with Libras because it tells the story of someone having to make a tough decision in terms of romance.
Also, Adore Delano totally rocked the talent show in All Stars 2! And she looked fabulous even without the cinching!
Written by Holland-Dozier-Holland and DeVol. Performed by The Supremes.
So, this song makes the list because it was my Libra dad’s favorite song. But that is not the only reason. Libras are just as adaptable as mutable signs, so they are quite good at taking whatever life throws at them. You could also argue that this song is also about making a hard decision after a major life change.
Leaving On A Jet Plane
Written and performed by John Denver
Much like the song above, I may have put this song on the list because it was my Libra grandmother’s favorite song. But it truly does have that sweet, affectionate Libra energy. Like many of the songs on here, it tells the story of a hard romantic choice, but with a positive spin.
Peaceful Easy Feeling
Written by Jack Tempchin and performed by The Eagles
This is a song that a Libra can listen to after a long day to unwind. It’s a song of peace, love, and being happy in the moment. It reminds Libra that it is always okay to have your head in the clouds as long as you keep standing on the ground.
