What's ironic here is that in my procrastination I'm going to highlight the music I most enjoy when studying!
So here are some of my favorites to listen to while writing/studying/reading/absorbing knowledge. Hopefully you can put these on in the background and enjoy some great, mellow, transportative (OK, well I know it's not a word and there's an actual word out there that means the same thing but it's finals week and my brain is fried so give me a break!). Sometimes it's hard not to watch the videos as well...
Sigur Ros "Glosoli"
There are a lot of great videos combining the beautiful music of Sigur Ros with breathtaking footage from Planet Earth, I have to keep the window minimized when watching this one
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End Soundtrack "At Wit's End". Gotta love the sweeping dramatic songs Hans Zimmer composes
Explosions in the Sky "The Only Moment We Were Alone" Epic Post-Modern Rock
Bon Iver "Towers" Off the self-titled sophomore album, in my opinion the song ends way too soon. The video is also hypnotic
And a pick-me up song for when you realize you've dozed off cause it's 2:30am and you're nowhere near finished writing/studying:
m83 "Midnight City" the driving back beat is more effective than coffee when it comes to keeping my eyes open late-night.
And an appropriate song for the season that ALWAYS gets me through December Finals Week:
Vince Guaraldi Trio "Christmastime is Here (Instrumental)" Oh Charlie Brown!
Finally, a treat for those who have made it this far:
This is what I did as a study break on Friday...
I really need a creative outlet and felt inspired to sing. There may be more coming...
