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.
