Paris Jackson dropped by Teen Vogue on Wednesday (Mar. 7) to dish out the soundtrack to her life, the model, who will be making her onscreen debut in the new Joel Edgerton-directed crime-drama film Gringo, built a playlist of important songs she’s listened to throughout her life.
Jackson chose a plethora of oldies from different genres, beginning with “Moon River” by Andy Williams, she explained that it was her one of her first ever favorite songs and that she grew up listening to that genre and era of music. She followed that up with The Eagles‘ breezy record “Peaceful Easy Feeling.” Her third choice, Zee Avi‘s “Concrete Wall” was an ode to her teenage years and was the only recent song she’d picked for the list it.
Among others were Stevie Wonder‘s Songs in the Key of Life hit “Sir Duke” and Elton John‘s “Daniel.” While most of her picks were oldies, the 19-year-old Jackson decided not to include any hits from her late father and “King of Pop” Michael Jackson — arguably, she likely had too many to choose from.
“Music is everything to me. It’s kind of all I know and the biggest form of connection I have with anything,” she said. “It’s all of the things that make you feel. Period. Not just good, but everything.”
