Stress is everywhere these days. Exams, essays, late nights at lau – it’s time to lighten up. I was considering dropping a heavy, darker Halloween playlist but this week just isn’t right for it. Leaves are falling, everything is getting a bit more color to it; we need a playlist to match the campus ambience. Just let this one go on your speakers and do whatever you want.
Just a Friend – Biz Markie Any topic can be made light with the right beat and the rights bars. One of the greatest songs on a classic theme: that two-timing skank.
Don’t Worry Be Happy – Bobby McFerrin What more needs to be said? The playlist in a nutshell.
Electric Avenue – Eddy Grant This playlist can be misconstrued as a lazy playlist, but this songs proves it all wrong. You can be laid back without being a bum. Get jumpin to this one.
Superstitious – Stevie Wonder The riffs and beat is absolutely jammin. Weather is getting nice and trees are getting pretty, so go outside and nod your head to this one. Classic.
Here Comes Your Man – Pixies And even if you don’t got one, it doesn’t mean you can’t pretend you do! Upbeat, catchy, and a song you wouldn’t mind having stuck in your head.
Fly Like An Eagle – Steve Miller Band I first heard this song while watching Space Jam (one of the greatest films ever made), and got back into it senior year summer. Everybody says the word “chill” is overused, but this song is, no doubt, chill.
Before I Got High – Afroman This playlist does not encourage any sort of illegal behavior, but it does encourage kicking it back with friends and having a good time.
The Bad Touch – Bloodhound Gang One vice for another! Good times all around!
I Want You Back – The Jackson 5 I think any input on my part would detract from the pure beauty of this song.
Three Little Birds – Bob Marley “Every little thing is gonna be alright” – you probably hear this a lot from your friends when you break down while studying. If you don’t, hear it from the man.
