Studying, a concept I can never seem to get a hold of. When I think about studying my immediate thought is stress, but after many years of playing around on what studying mechanisms help, I noticed it was right in my palms. With so much music in the world and different kinds of genres, I found that my music mood for studying is “calm” music.
This playlist varies from typical songs you hear on the radio to songs you probably had no idea were out there; to tell you the truth, I didn’t know many of these songs either until I went to other people’s playlists. This playlist contains 50 songs that you can choose from.
The list includes selection from Ariana Grande to the Migos, making some probably ask “what calm song does the Migos’ have?” However, it will probably surprise you once you get a glimpse of this playlist.
The main song that sticks out to me is “Woman” by Harry Styles, which is a song I fell in love when he dropped his debut album. The lyrics have their own emotion along with the beat that brings that calmness I’m seeking for when I’m studying.
The most repetitive artist on this playlist is the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Granted this is a band I grew up loving because of Guitar Hero but their music is intriguing to me, and it is the right type of music I am looking for for a playlist like this. The genre of their music is known as “Funk Rock,” which includes a lot of instruments that are easily picked out when one listens to this kind of music.
“Island In The Sun” by Weezer and “What Kind of Man” by Florence + The Machine are the songs that midway in it aren’t really that calm because of their rock influence. These two song can be easily remembered because of their strong guitar riffs but that doesn’t defy the song from being calm and included to this playlist. These two songs are a part of my studying process and the reason I can easily do this task without getting distracted. Their loudness is much needed once in while when I am studying.
My Top 5 from this playlist (this list is in order):
- “Woman” by Harry Styles
- “Don’t Touch” My Hair by Solange
- “Numb” by Max Jury
- “Lovefool” by The Cardigans
- “If I Could Change Your Mind” by Haim
This playlist is available on Spotify and will be updated every now and then when new songs come up.
Much love and enjoy,
