A Playlist to Push You Through the End of the School Year

By: Paige Horton


Whether you are swamped in summer projects or just lounging around in class, we can all admit we’re closing in on the final stretch of our school days. Here is a playlist to give yourself the extra push to end the school year strong and get you ready for summer.

  1. “Prom Queen” by Beach Bunny: This song is the perfect bop to jam around with your bestie after a long day of studying and tests. Grab a fun outfit and just let yourself go for a while. In these last few days, us students should try to enjoy our time in high school while we still have it!

  2. “Manic Monday” by The Bangles: A staple for every Monday morning in my house, this song is perfect to make your last Monday of the school year fantastic. This song reminds me not to take things too seriously, and it totally gives me motivation to have a groovy day.

  3. “Green Light” by Lorde: Whether you’re just finishing up The Great Gatsby or just looking for a tune that’ll give you those summer vibes, “Green Light” is the one for you. It reminds me of summer days with my girlfriends while we drive down to the beach with our heads sticking out of the windows. From weekend bonfires to Wednesday night study sessions, this song is a great pick-me-up.

  4. “Sucker” by The Jonas Brothers: Sweet harmonies are almost as delectable as a lollipop within this song. This song is the perfect mood for a road trip with the girlies. Jamming along the highway, you could blast this song into space and nobody would care because it’s the Jonas Brothers. And honestly, who doesn’t love the Jonas Brothers.

  5. “Give It to Me” by HOMESHAKE: This song is my go-to study sash song. With a calming beat and some slow vocals, it keeps me focused on my work, while still having the ability to rock. With major coffeehouse vibes, it is the perfect tune to bring down to Ruth Cafe with your buds and have a productive, but popping’ study social.

  6. “Raspberry” by Grouplove: Put those sunglasses on, because the sun is out and we are headed on an adventure! Summer break is finally hear, the last bell of the 2018-2019 school year has rung and you are ready to skedaddle! Backpack in the trunk and keys in the ignition, your summer has officially commenced and this is the beat to send you off. You may have had some stress and a few bad days, but that’s all in the past now that summer is here! :)
