Finals Week Playlist: Calming Tunes
As the Winter Quarter comes to a conclusion, you might just need some songs played on repeat to accompany you as you study for that final exam. Recent releases from artists like Ed Sheeran, Khalid, and Calvin Harris are the perfect tunes to listen to during this stressful period (because it doesn't have to be!).
Ed Sheeran ÷ (Deluxe) March 3, 2017
Ed Sheeran's new album is seriously all I've been listening to lately. The steady rhythm and his calming voice in these songs are a great background to my studying!
My favorites from this album are Eraser, Dive, Perfect, Galway Girl, Happier, New Man, and Save Myself.
Khalid American Teen March 3, 2017
Khalid's got such a deep and clear voice that's just so pleasant to listen to. Even some of his upbeat songs sound quite composed, which is just what you want while studying!
My favorites from this album are American Teen, Young Dumb & Broke, Coaster, 8TEEN, and Shot Down.
Here is another song from Khalid that I couldn't stop listening to.
Alina Baraz also has some nice songs that can help you focus.
Calvin Harris Slide ft. Frank Ocean and Migos Feb. 24, 2017
Frank Ocean's nonchalant voice and diction and the mix of paces make this piece incomparable.
X Ambassadors Hoping New Release!
All proceeds of this song go to the ACLU, the American Civil Liberties Union. This is definitely my favorite song at the moment. It's so catchy and makes you feel good to sing along to.
