The Ultimate Finals Playlist

It’s that time of the year again (nope, not the holidays). You can just smell it in the air! The tensions, the nostalgia, the last minute crams. Here’s a new playlist to sum up what remains of the year, with a few minor tweaks to the lyrics you know and love (although considering my musical tastes: lyrics your dad knows and really wishes you’d love).

 

Post-Thanksgiving: You just got the small break you desperately needed, and oh look! you’ve returned with a sliver of hope. Little did you know how quickly the finals f**kfest begins.

The New Day (Greta Van Fleet):

♪Let the new day (ONLY UNTIL 4PM OF COURSE) shine its light on me
Shake the old way, nights too dark to see
Free tomorrow, it’s bright with something new
Believe the righteous, and it will come true ♪

 

Last Week of Class: “Wow, how the hell is the semester already over? I swear I was just about to go to the prof’s office hours for the first time yesterday, and form a meaningful connection for that recommendation letter I need”

“I wonder if she still remembers me from that one time we talked about climate feedbacks”

Time is fleeting friends.

 

Good Times Bad Times (Led Zeppelin):

♪In the days of my youth
I was told what it was to be a man
Now I’ve reached the age
I’ve tried to do all those things the best I can
No matter how I try
I find my way to do the same old jam
Good times, bad times
You know I had my share
When my soul left home
For a midterm so bad
Well, I still don’t seem to care ♪

Live the best S/NC life people!

As one fellow Blogify-er once said, you’re probably starting to feel “in the groove.” So, in that spirit, here’s a playlist in honor of getting back into the swing of things, featuring plenty of classic throwbacks, new jams, and–of course–Beyoncé.

Blogify: (250+) Days of Summer

unnamed

While most of us are excited to get back to Brown, many of us are wary of getting back to “University.” Fear no more: this summer playlist will extend your vacation till the first leaf (or snowflake) falls. Whether you’re writing an essay, putting the finishing touches on your dorm decor, or dreading the first hint of cold weather, we’ve got you covered from Azealia to Zedd. Now put on some sunscreen and finish up that paper.


Blogify: 20th Century Spring Weekend

In two days, the entire campus will transform for the 55th installment of one of Brown’s greatest traditions. Spring Weekend is definitely about tanks, sunshine (hopefully), and music, but it’s also about history. Since 1960, Brown has hosted some of the most significant musicians in the industry. Such formative headliners include Bob Dylan, Ella Fitzgerald, U2, Bruce Springsteen, Janis Joplin, Ike & Tina Turner, Bob Marley &The Wailers…

To help you get through finals period, here is a killer study playlist of good music to study to, with some fun study break and motivational songs (The Climb by 2009 Miley Cyrus anyone?) scattered in.

Happy finals!
