Beats To Keep You Groovin’ During Study Hours

With finals right around the corner we students face the difficult task of finding the perfect music to listen to while doing work (son). The “perfect” music will vary from person to person, but with the help of some of our Twitter faithful I’ve compiled what should be a good start: Soundcloud, Pandora, Genius button on iTunes or the pre-made Genius Mixes

Thievery Corporation – “Until the Morning”

Ratatat – “Spanish Armada”

Vitamin String Quartet (or any type of string quartet tribute bands) offers instrumental covers of many hit songs you’re used to hearing on the radio 8,000 times a day – “Fireflies”

Nine Inch Nails – “The Hand That Feeds”

Toe – Songs: Ideas We Forgot

Hidden in Plain View – “Bleed For You”

Instrumental Beastie Boys album The Mix-Up – “Electric Worm”

Pretty Lights – “Finally Moving”

Explosions in the Sky – “First Breath After Coma”

Album Leaf – “Into The Sea”

Soundtracks like Atonement, Friday Night Lights (Explosions in the Sky featured), etc. are also good suggestions and can often be found on iTunes. I do suggest giving new life to your own music by utilizing the iTunes Genius button or the pre-made Genius mixes. If creativity is lacking, you can always resort back to Pandora, Last.fm, or stereomood, which gives you playlists based on your mood (ie: ‘Lost In Jamaica’ for all you kids yearning for the days of spring break vacation). Have any suggestions that didn’t make the list? Give them a shout out in the comment section and spread the wealth. Good luck with your final wrap up assignments!

Stoop Kid’s Afraid to Leave the Stoop

Editor and graduating senior Caity Rogowski writes about living the questions, facing fears, sharing burdens, and accepting reality.

“If you’ve ever seen the movie You’ve Got Mail, you’ll understand me when I say I have the “Kathleen Kelly Syndrome.” I often have trouble saying exactly what I mean. Instead, I find it easier to outsource by using quotes or songs to convey my message. That’s why you’ll find a few of my favorites scattered throughout this post: my senior column.”
