Impact Mixtape | “The Pain and The Pleasure” by Anthony Cruz


Anthony Cruz, Entertainment Team Volunteer

A matter of the heart can be hard to discern. One can feel exhilarated, content, hopeless, or sorrowful all in a span of several moments. Love can heal, blind, and scar us if not careful. I have always resonated with music that touches on this constant push and pull of emotions. Attached are some of my go-to songs about love and its sunsets, or hardships. Some of my favorites include: “Hurts So Good,” by Astrid S, “Again,” by Avonlea, and “Dreamland,” by Wild Belle. Don’t be fooled! Some of these songs are certified, up-beat bangers too. Sometimes we want to dance our pain away, of course. Happy listening!
