Being a college student, I have quite a bit on my plate for this evening (really for the whole week). To say I’m overwhelmed is an understatement. For this reason, my post tonight will be short and sweet. When I’m writing a paper or studying, I usually like to listen to music that calms me down or gets me pumped up for some homework. It usually depends on what kind of mood I’m in. My favorite song for getting pumped about homework (as if that was possible) is “Lights (Bassnectar Remix)” by Ellie Goulding. I like to think this song was one of my favorites before it started being overplayed on the radio. The Bassnectar version is great to get you energized, and I really like listening to it during a run as well. If I’m in a more mellow mood while doing endless hours of work, my newest favorite is Boyce Avenue’s cover of “Glad You Came” by The Wanted. This guy’s voice is incredible, and I love his acoustic take on the song. Once I heard this song I absolutely had to go listen to the rest of his covers. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Another new favorite is Ellie Goulding’s “Anything Can Happen.” I seriously can’t wait until her newest album comes out! What are your favorite songs to listen to when you need some energy?
