My philosophy on study music has always been that if I’m going to be suffering, I might as well have some sick beats playing in the background so that my pain can sound good. So, over the course of my time as a student, I’ve developed a somewhat eclectic collection of bops for the purpose of studying and relaxing. Here is my handpicked playlist of 24/7 lofi beats to study and relax to:
- The Celeste soundtrack
This acclaimed video game would not be nearly as special as it is if not for its lovely soundtrack, composed by the wonderful Lena Raine. Celeste is a game that I remember very fondly, so listening to the soundtrack is like being wrapped in a warm blanket.
This one isn’t exactly music, just ambient rain and thunderstorm sounds. However, I love the sound of rain, so it calms me down instantly. Also try playing Rainymood with music underneath it!
- The Pride and Prejudice (2005) soundtrack
I love this movie to bits and its elegant piano-heavy soundtrack is perfect for when you need to concentrate!
- Casiopea’s music
Casiopea is an awesome Japanese jazz fusion band. Their music is upbeat, so it’s perfect for when you need a little afternoon or evening boost. Also, their music has no singing or lyrics, which is helpful for concentration.
- Kero Kero Bonito’s music
This British indie pop band’s most recent music is perfect for when you’re doing homework well-past midnight. It just has those vibes.
- The Crypt of the Necrodancer soundtrack
I’ve never played this game, but I’ve used its awesome soundtrack for many a study session.
Every student needs an arsenal of good music to make those long study sessions a little more bearable. I hope this list helped you develop yours!
