From roughly August 23 to September 22, it’s time to celebrate Virgo season! This Earth sign is characterized by a love of knowledge and order with a strong sense of justice. Virgos tend to be pretty self-sufficient and sensitive to their surroundings, which can make them seem like shy wallflowers. Once they open up, though, a Virgo can also be the chattiest person in the room!

Some absolute titans of the music industry were born under the sign of Virgo, such as Michael Jackson, Beyoncé, Amy Winehouse, and Shania Twain. Whether you’re a Virgo like them or you’re simply seeking some song recommendations to get you through this season of your life, we’ve got you covered. We’ve selected the perfect Virgo-themed song for each sign, so read on for our recommendations.

“VIRGO’S GROOVE” — Beyoncé

Could we really have chosen anything else? Queen Bey provided her fellow Virgos with this official anthem when she released her club-inspired album Renaissance last year. This song embraces the sexier side of the sign and celebrates the beauty and joy of being with the person you love. Think Virgos are uptight, rule-following squares? This sleek, sensual hit asks you to think again.


“No Scrubs” — TLC

The energetic and headstrong Aries may seem like the polar opposite sign to Virgo, but they both share a strong sense of independence. Where Aries’ independent spirit can sometimes be seen as aggressive, independence tends to make Virgos seem more distant or even slightly aloof. Pay homage to this independence and self-reliance with TLC’s iconic “No Scrubs.” These girls know exactly what they don’t want, and they’re happy to be alone if it means they don’t end up with someone “hangin’ out the passenger side of his best friend’s ride, trying to holler at me.”


“Royals” — Lorde

People born under the sign of Taurus are known to be assertive and self-aware, and “Royals” ties this in perfectly with Virgos’ love of order and justice. This song, which shot a teenaged Lorde into the mainstream, is about being hyper-aware that you don’t come from wealth but making up for it with a life that’s rich in love and good memories. Taurus self-awareness shines through in lyrics like “we’re fine with this, we didn’t come from money,” while the Virgo tendency to be aware of your surroundings is heard in the lines “I’m not proud of my address, in a torn-up town, no postcode envy.”


“Two Doors Down” — Dolly Parton

While some people think Geminis have a reputation for being two-faced, their ability to roll with the punches and adapt to any situation is definitely an asset. Virgos could learn a thing or two from this adaptable sign, especially when it comes to love. Take this Dolly Parton song as an example: at the start, she’s crying alone about a breakup while a party rages further along her street. By the end, she’s met a new beau at that party and taken him back to her place! It’s all about making the best of the cards you’ve been dealt.


“Shake It Out” — Florence + The Machine

Cancers are known for their deep and powerful emotions. Sometimes these feelings can get the better of you, so take a leaf out of a Virgo’s book and go down the logical route — shake them off and keep going! In this classic, Florence Welch talks about demons and difficult times, but sagely reminds the listener that it’s “always darkest before the dawn.”


“Smooth Operator” — Sade

Often found at the center of attention, Leos could learn from the Virgo tendency to keep it cool and wait for the right time to make a move. Take a hint from the subject of Sade’s slick ’80s hit — keep it cool and collected, and you’ll be a “diamond life, lover boy” in no time!


“We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together (Taylor’s Version)” — Taylor Swift

Libras are seen as the most romantic and fanciful sign of the Zodiac, often characterized by a reluctance to leave ex-lovers in the past. This Virgo season, Libras could channel some of the ordered, logical thinking that Virgos excel at to close any doors they’ve been keeping open. What better song to soundtrack that decision than this? Let Taylor do the talking and make sure you never, ever, get back together (like, ever).


“bury a friend” — Billie Eilish

One thing Scorpios and Virgos are said to have in common is a love of grudges. Both signs tend to hold onto resentment for a long time, so Billie Eilish has some advice — bury it and move on! This atmospheric release from Billie’s debut album has some creepy lyrics that conjure up images of monsters and demons, but the second verse details the resentment she holds towards someone who tried to take advantage of her fame. Instead of letting them hold that power over her, she buries the hatchet — quite literally!


“I Want to Hold Your Hand” — The Beatles

Those born under Sagittarius tend to be outgoing and honest, and they share a sense of independence with Virgos. Perhaps they could teach Virgos a thing or two about being more adventurous — and why not start with romance? In 1964, The Beatles released the ultimate ode to being honest with the person you love with this simple but timeless song. Just let them know you want to hold their hand!


“Piano Man” — Billy Joel

Capricorns share some traits with their fellow Earth sign of Virgo, particularly the characteristics of being observant and grounded. They can embrace these similarities with “Piano Man,” which will speak to their tendency to sit on the sidelines and observe the characters of the world. Maybe you’re not the waitress practising politics or the real estate novelist, but you would probably enjoy watching them as you sip your drink!


“Electric Feel” — MGMT

Aquarians can be a little eccentric, and they’re known to be one of the more individualistic signs of the Zodiac. Similarly to Virgos, this can mean that they’re sometimes seen as aloof, but this innate drive for independence doesn’t have to be negative. Their innovative, unique nature should be embraced! So, this Virgo season, embrace your individuality with this quirky song by MGMT. The bassline is iconic, so dance like no one (other than the Virgo watching from the sidelines) is watching!


“Brave” — Sara Bareilles

People born under this sign are often sensitive souls. Pisces tend to wear their hearts on their sleeves! This song by Sara Bareilles provides them with some Virgo-style resilience for when those emotions feel overwhelming. It can help them feel seen, while giving them the self-acceptance and courage needed to push through and, literally, be brave.
