I go on Pandora and listen to the classical station :D
Alex Heathcock, Fashion Blogger
Pearl Jam, John Mayer, Jack Johnson, Bon Iver, The Kooks, Coldplay, Fleetwood Mac, Imogen Heap, Counting Crows, Eddie Vedder, The xx, Florence + The Machine, U2, Mumford & Sons, and Bruce Springsteen for a chill study sesh. When I need energy and motivation I blast Blink-182, Third Eye Blind, Brand New, Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rise Against, Pepper, or Dave Matthews Band.

I made a playlist of all my fave Disney songs. Specifically, I play "I'll Make a Man Out of You" from Mulan to get myself pumped for a test, working out, or just to "get down to business..." :D

Spanish Contemporary Radio on Pandora in a last ditch effort to get my brain in Spanish mode so I'll absorb more...
Haven Purbaugh, PR Director
Strange, but I Pandora classic country. I am not a fan of the modern stuff at all, but Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline, and Conway Twitty all keep me motivated!

Best Coast's album Crazy For You because it's get-ready-for-summer music
Julie Victain, Business Team Member
I totally listen to like classic rock with Elton John and Billy Joel: totally calming and puts you in a positive mood.

M83's entire album called Hurry up, We're Dreaming
Mara Flanagan, Campus Correspondent
James Taylor, Carole King, Frank Sinatra, Luther Vandross and Jack Johnson are my constant studying companions. I also love the Pandora jazz station and WQED-FM.

When it comes to studying, I definitely reach for the most high-energy albums in my possession. Adam Lambert's For Your Entertainment, Michael Jackson's Bad and Dangerous, as well as any CD from the Glee Cast are sure to feature pop songs with a steady beat to keep those study-juices flowing! If you're a little bit rock 'n' roll, '80s artists (i.e., Billy Joel, Duran Duran, Elton John, Dead or Alive) can also get you pumped up for the last of the semester's projects.

Harry Potter / Kingdom Hearts soundtracks. I can't listen to anything with lyrics or I never get anything done! :)
