It’s me again, here to give you some A+ song recommendations to help distract you from your finals *cough* I mean, help you focus and study your little heart out!!!
1. Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN.
I mean, duh. If you haven’t listened to this album yet, you may as well do it now to distract yourself from studying. Faves include: LOVE., DNA., and HUMBLE.
2. Harry Styles’ Sign of the Times
Honestly, Harry Styles is a perfect man. This song is just ambient enough for me to play in the background for like 30 seconds before I realize its Harry Styles and then jam out embarrassingly for the next four and a half minutes.
3. Khalid’s Young Dumb & Broke
I just discovered this guy a couple days ago and I don’t know much about his music, but what I’ve heard is super chill and nice to play in the background while paper writing or studying!
4. Hippo Campus’s Landscape
This band makes me feel cooler and more hip than I am, and that’s necessary when finals come around. Faves include: Monsoon, Vines, Buttercup.
5. Toro y Moi’s Omaha
Any new music from Chaz Bundick is amazing, and this song is super chill and makes me wish I was out in the sunshine instead of slaving away in the Middle Ground.
6. The Bee Gee’s More Than a Woman
For some reason I always find myself listening to disco during finals. Last year it was ABBA, this year it’s this one song from Saturday Night Fever. Shout out to my African American music class for introducing me to better music than this, but also this.
7. Lorde’s Homemade Dynamite playlist on Spotify
This playlist is flawless and reminds me constantly of why Ella is the coolest person ever and my life inspiration. Faves include: Sigrid’s Don’t Kill My Vibe, Bleacher’s Hate That You Know Me, Bon Iver’s 45, Future’s Mask Off.
Good luck with finals, and have a great summer everyone!
