Karen Zoid’s talent and passion for music has made her one of the top musicians in South Africa, earning her the title ‘Queen of Rock’ and instilling her as a legend in the making. To celebrate her favourite artists and music influences, Karen has put together her own Apple Music Playlist, titled ‘101 Songs That Never Get Old.’  Her playlist features some of her favourite songs from artists and bands including; Pink Floyd, John Lennon, Led Zeppelin, John Mayer, Placebo, Pearl Jam, Queen, Adele, Tina Turner, Joni Mitchell and many others, making for an eclectic and exciting listening experience.

Says Karen, “My playlist features songs that I can listen to over and over. Each one of these tunes are masterpieces to my ears. 101 musings and meditations for all the other happy melancholics out there.”

Over the past four seasons, Karen Zoid’s hit entertainment TV talk show Republiek van Zoid Afrika has offered in-depth and intriguing interviews with some of the country’s best known entertainers and personalities. Each episode sees a performance of Karen with her weekly musical guest. Those performances have often become chart topping hits, with albums available to listen on Apple Music and for purchase on iTunes.  Republiek van Zoid Afrika Vol.5, featuring songs performed during the current season, is now available on Apple Music.
