The Perfect Playlist for Every Occasion

As the old saying goes, when the going gets tough, the tough put on their headphones. The best remedies often come in the form of melodies, and music can set the mood for every situation. Lyrics become dialogue with boys you want to know better, and music scores become award-winning scripts to the newest action thriller starring, who else, but you. Songs can mess you up. Songs can make you smile. Songs can bring you to tears just by hearing the first strum of that chord. Sometimes you just need a little soundtrack to your life, so here are seven essential playlists for every collegiette for every occasion. Headphones not included.
