There’s a reason Spring Weekend is everyone’s favorite time at Brown–and no, it’s not green. Brown students love good music. Brown students also love sharing good music with each other. And the overdramatic middle schooler in all of us still thinks our lives merit a soundtrack chock full of uplifting indie anthems, songs with a lot of oohs and aahs, etc. etc. Introducing…Blogify! [Ed.: Get it? It’s like Spotify.]
Blogify is a biweekly playlist curated by Blog writers and editors and, pretty soon, by you. The playlists will (hopefully!) be in rhythm (I couldn’t help myself) with what’s going on in Brunonia. In the days leading up to Spring Weekend, we’ll have a Spring Weekend playlist; when it’s around midterms or finals, we’ll make another study playlist… you get the point.
Without further ado, we present the first playlist: Back 2 Skool. The next playlist’s theme? “In the Groove.” Comment below or email us with song suggestions and enjoy listening!
Even finals can be made a little better with some good music, right?
Wrong. Right! So, instead of actually doing our own work, we compiled a killer study playlist that’ll hopefully make living in the Rock (or Scili!) slightly more bearable. Be sure to comment below with your favorite songs or any ones that we missed.
When it comes to love, Trey Songz, D’Angelo, and Robin Thicke seem to have all the answers. If you’re at a loss for words this Valentine’s Day, why not let music do the talking for you and turn to those who have more experience under their belts (if you know what I mean)? After all, what’s better than some sweet tunes to set the mood and let your special someone know what’s up? Here are some songs that may help you on your way…you’ll be sure to get your point across.
And if you’re feeling sad on this day of love, I have two words for you: “Single Ladies.” Or try some of the songs at the bottom of the playlist, beginning with Trey Songz’ “Can’t Be Friends,” and remember that you are not alone.
I conceptualize StudyJamz as fitting into two major categories:
- ChillStudyJamz – I am reading Freud’s theory of the 4th dimensional city. I am a flowering intellectual. Background noise would be nice as I contemplate the relationship between time and space.
- PumpUpStudyJamz – I HAVEN’T SLEPT IN THREE DAYS IS THIS COFFEE I’M DRINKING IT WAIT IS THAT A HAWK EATING A SQUIRREL I NEED THE INTENSITY OF A TORNADO EARTHQUAKE IN MY HEADPHONES
Here are some choice picks from both categories. And I’m not going to lie to you: This blog post may be my curated musical masterpiece.
