Jamming to music can provide much-needed relief when studying for finals when they become a bit overwhelming, as well as a great release when finals are finally over. Based on results from the questionnaire we sent out a couple weeks ago, many of you chose to take the pressure of finals to heart when saying your go-to study songs include “Under Pressure” by Queen or “I Won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz. Some saw fit to give their grades over to a higher power with motivation from songs like “Jesus Take the Wheel” by Carrie Underwood and “Overcome” by Jeremy Camp.
When it comes to celebrating post-finals, the tunes take a turn for different vibes with many of you craving “We are the Champions” by Queen and “Live While We’re Young” by the British teen pop stars, One Direction. Of course, the infamous “Gangnam Style” by Psy will have everyone dancing once finals are completed and “Party Rock Anthem” by LMFAO should be played at maximum volume levels going into Winter Break.
141 unique songs fit for studying and 134 unique songs for once the studying is done were thrown our way from students across the globe. Check out the top 5 list for each category below along with a breakdown of where students turn when they need to crank it up:
