Written and performed by Janelle Monáe, featuring Eryka Badu. Co-written by Kellis Parker Jr., Roman GianArthur Irvin, Nathaniel Irvin III, Charles Joseph II.
Capricorn, you have great leadership skills and immeasurable willpower, and that is why this song is perfect for you. This is a song about empowering marginalized people and giving them the strength to rule over their own lives and futures. You are a natural-born leader and this song is your anthem.
Damn It Feels Good To Be Me
Written and performed by Andy Grammer.
Capricorns often get maligned for their self-importance. And while arrogance is not always the most attractive quality, they are not merely egotistical. Capricorns work hard to achieve the love that they have for themselves. With lyrics like ”ain’t got nothing left to prove,” this song reminds them that they cannot survive without having a little bit of pride in themselves.
Written and performed by Beyoncé Knowles. Co-written by Khalif Brown, Asheton Hogan, and Michael Len Williams II.
This song by the fabulous earth sign, Beyoncé, speaks to Capricorn’s ability to achieve anything that they put their minds to. You know how to dream it, work hard, grind until you own it, and twirl on your haters. Whenever you are feeling low, play this song and remember just how awesome you are!
If We Make It Through December
Written and performed by Merle Haggard.
Not every song on this playlist has to be a high-energy bop. Capricorns deserve some thoughtful ballads in their mix, too. Capricorn season starts at the tail end of December but that is not the only reason that this song made the list. This introspective tune about a man looking for work during Christmas speaks to Capricorn’s hardworking nature and accountability.
Written and performed by Todrick Hall, featuring Bob The Drag Queen. Co-written by Jean-Yves G. Ducornet, Carl Seante Mcgrier, and Kofi A. Owusi-Ofori.
Capricorns have leadership qualities that are unmatched by any other sign in the zodiac. And this entrancing song written from the point of view of the Wicked Witch of the West, will awaken Capricorn’s “take-no-prisoner” attitude. Capricorns will enjoy singing along to empowering lyrics like “‘cause I won’t back down and I won’t concede.”
Written and performed by Dolly Parton.
Of course the captivating Capricorn Dolly Parton had to be featured on this playlist! As I stated earlier in this article, emotionally evolved Capricorns manifest self-love as a means of survival. This song that tells the story of a woman freeing herself from an unhappy relationship will speak to Capricorn’s independent nature.
We Are the Champions
Written and performed by Queen.
There is something about the music in this song that just oozes charisma. And Capricorns are nothing if not charismatic. Capricorns do not always see the need for humility, especially when they are proud of their accomplishments and the accomplishments of their peers. This song speaks to their pride and fortitude.
Devil Went Down To Georgia
Written and performed by The Charlie Daniels Band. Co-written by Tom Crain, Taz DiGregorio, Fred Edwards, Charles Hayward, and James W Marshall.
The tarot card for Capricorn is The Devil. But don’t worry! It doesn’t represent anything evil, it represents earthly delights. You can find earthly delights and treasures as well as devil imagery in this classic tune by The Charlie Daniels Band. This song about a young man beating the devil in a fiddle-playing contest reflects the earth sign’s winner-take-all attitude.
Whatever It Takes
Performed by Imagine Dragons. Written by Benjamin Arthur McKee, Daniel Coulter Reynolds, Daniel James Platzman, Daniel Wayne Sermon, and Joel Little.
Capricorns do not back down from challenges. Competition does not intimidate them, it only motivates them. This is a great song for Capricorns to listen to when they need a little extra drive and determination. The cardinal earth signs will relate to lyrics like “I do whatever it takes because I love how it feels when I break the chains.”
I Am a Rock, I Am an Island
Performed by Simon and Garfunkel. Written by Paul Simon.
This song title may be a little too on-the-nose for an earth sign. But hear me out. This seemingly peaceful song gives us a respite from the more fast-paced songs on this list. The song depicts a winter’s day, which is perfect for the wintry sign. And it also speaks to solipsistic Capricorns’ need for alone time. No Capricorn is an island unto themselves, but this song will allow them to enjoy their own company and reflect on their life.
Written and performed by Mary J. Blige. Co-written by Sam Romans.
Mary J. Blige understands the Capricornian struggle of being underestimated, being a Capricorn herself. This song will encourage you to fix your crown and remind all your haters and detractors of who exactly they are messing with. Capricorns can cathartically belt out the lyrics “now you’re looking at a leader, now you’re staring at a queen, you said I’ll never be someone, but now I’m pulling all the strings!”
I Will Always Love You
Written and performed by Dolly Parton. Cover by the late, great Whitney Houston.
Surely you did not think that I would only put one Dolly Parton song on this list, did you? Nope, she gets two songs here and maybe even some songs on Aquarius’ playlist. She was born on the cusp after all. Capricorns know how to love themselves and take care of themselves. But they, like their fellow earth signs, also know how to take care of others as well. Capricorns know the importance of self-love and self-care, but they also understand the importance of self-sacrifice. Listen to this song when you need reassurance about committing a selfless act.
