From Kelly Clarkson to Cher to Sam Smith, many incredible acts have been born under the sign of the bull, bringing their natural determination to bear in the music industry. Whether you’re a Taurus or not, there’s something to be learned from the admirable traits of this sign, and some great songs that go along with them, too! So, sit back, relax, and listen along to our playlist of songs for Taurus season.

“Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” — Kelly Clarkson

Kicking off our playlist, it’s only fitting to include a song from Kelly Clarkson — a strong and powerful Taurus if there ever was one. Determination, tenacity, and perseverance are synonymous with this star sign, and also this singer! Clarkson’s inspirational anthem in particular is sure to move you, and give you the strength to keep moving forward, no matter what!

“You’ve Got a Friend” — Carole King

Whether it’s winter, spring, summer, or fall, your Taurus friend will always be around for you. Considered one of the friendliest star signs, you can count on Taureans to offer good company, sound advice, or just sit and listen. Carole King’s GRAMMY award-winning “You’ve Got A Friend” sums up that sense of reliability perfectly. All you have to do is call, and they’ll be there.

To hear more of Carole King’s hits from the ’70s, groove along to ’70s on 7 (Ch. 7).


“I Will Always Love You” — Whitney Houston

If you’re lucky enough to have a Taurus in your life, you’ll know how incredibly loyal they are. They may be selective of who they let into their circle, but once you’re there, you’re there for good. And what better song to showcase the strength of their love and loyalty than Whitney Houston’s iconic power ballad, “I Will Always Love You”?

Belt along to more classic love songs on SiriusXM Love (Ch. 708).


“I Won’t Back Down” — Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

Just like their zodiac symbol, the bull, a Taurus knows what they need and will do everything that they can to get it. For better or worse, Taureans are known for being hard-headed. Just like Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, when it comes to the important stuff, they’ll stand their ground, they won’t back down, and they’ll always give their all.

“You Can’t Always Get What You Want” — The Rolling Stones

Taurus is an earth sign, and if you’re born under this sign, there’s a very high chance that you’re pretty grounded and down-to-earth. Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, things just don’t work out how you expect them to. The Rolling Stones’ ultimately optimistic anthem sums up the practical Taurus in that regard. They’re aware that sometimes in life, “you can’t always get what you want.” But, they also know that if you put all your effort into your goals then, just as the legendary Mick Jagger says, “you’ll get what you need.”

For some more vintage Rolling Stones, head to Classic Vinyl (Ch. 26).


“Vienna” — Billy Joel

Slow down, you’re doin’ fine. A Taurus has bundles of patience and knows that good things come to those who wait. As such, it makes sense that fellow Taurus Billy Joel wrote “Vienna” as a metaphor for aging. It’s an ode to taking your time, encapsulating the message that sometimes you just have to do your thing and wait it out — something that Taureans are great at.

Listen to more Billy Joel and other easy-listening pop artists on The Blend (Ch. 16).
