Midterms Playlist

Exams may be stressful for us students, especially during the end of the fall term when faced with Christmas preparation. However, it is crucial to take small breaks and de-stress. It helps us relax and retain more information. Here is a list of ten songs while studying or taking a break.  

1. Nocturne Op. 9 No. 2 - Chopin
Here is a classical piece by the amazing Chopin. If lyrics distract you from studying, this piece is for you.

2. XO - John Mayer
 A cozy playlist is not complete without John Mayer. His soothing voice is just perfect for warm nights studying in.

3. No More Losing War - Half Moon Run
This song is by an indie band from Montreal who toured with City and Colour. Sometimes we just need some Canadian lovin’.

4. Need It - Half Moon Run
Another relaxing song from Half Moon Run.

5. Follow You Down to the Red Oak Tree - James Vincent McMorrow
For Bon Iver fans out there like me who are waiting for them to finally release a new album.

6. New Dawn Fades - Joy Division
A soothing song from one of the best albums of all time, Unknown Pleasures.

7. Wonderwall - Ryan Adams
A soft rendition of Oasis’ Wonderwall.

8. Parachutes - Coldplay
This song is from my favourite Coldplay album of the same name. It has that warm feel ideal for end of the fall term studying.

9. Transatlanticism - Death Cab for Cutie
Perfect early 20’s throwback that makes you feel nostalgic and calm while studying.

10. Something In The Way - Nirvana
o study playlist is complete without a Nirvana song.
