Sydney Gordon’s Top 5 Influences Playlist

Applause – Lady Gaga

Gaga has influenced me a lot- especially with her writing. This track is definitely a great influence for me because it’s uplifting and the message is great.

WTF Do I Know – Miley Cyrus

I’ve always loved Miley. I grew up listening to her music but this is one of my favorite albums by her. I love this track specifically because it’s so bold. This is one of the songs I was listening to nonstop while in the process of creating Say What You Mean.

Fighter – Xtina

Christina has been a big influence for me. Her persona and talent always amazes me. This is a great track by her that I think captures her style perfectly.

La La Land – Demi Lovato

Demi is another artist I grew up listening to. I chose this track because it is from the first album she ever released. This always takes me back to when I started having an interest in music at a young age.

Mothers Daughter – Miley Cyrus

Another Miley track I love!! The message is very moving and glows with confidence.
