With the spring semester finally winding down, only one thing is now in the way of students and summer: finals.
After classes are over, students all over campus will be hiding out in their dorms, apartments and the library studying for hours on end. Finals are stressful for everyone, but good music can make any studying bearable. So to make studying for finals a little more entertaining, here's a playlist to help you get through these next two grueling weeks.
"Walk This Way" by Aerosmith
This song is a classic. It will help anyone studying for math or science finish those complicated problems that will be on the final next week.
"Dog Days Are Over" by Florence + The Machine
This song will help anyone write those last few papers for English and keep students reading that textbook that you're dying to get rid of. Instead of falling asleep in the book, keep yourself awake and energized with this song.
"It's Time" by Imagine Dragons
Probably more than any other song on the playlist, this one will keep you focused through the early morning hours, since "it's time" to study for finals.
"Off to the Races" by Lana Del Rey
I absolutely love Lana Del Rey, and this song is probably my favorite. Whenever some serious work needs to be done, have this song playing because it keeps you concentrated on whatever subject you are studying.
"Queen of California" by John Mayer
One of the newest songs from Mayer is one of the more relaxing on this playlist. It's perfect background music to listen to while reading or finishing up the conclusion of your paper.
"Sunday Morning" by Maroon 5
When I'm studying, this song provides serious relief from stress and never fails to recharge and reset my mind to continue studying.
"Me and Mrs. Jones (Live)" by Michael Bublé
Need a reason to keep studying? Just listen to Mr. Bublé's soft, sweet voice and you'll destress in less than a minute. His quirky take on this smooth classic makes the listener feel like they're right there at the concert. Since it's a slower song, it's great to listen to when reading or writing.
"I Love It" by Icona Pop, feat. Charlie XCX
This song will keep anyone amped up for the last little bit of cramming left to do. Then, when finished, celebrate by dancing out to this song until the wee hours of the morning.
Good luck on finals, and I hope this playlist will make studying a little less painful.
