1. “Himalaya,” by Chance Emerson
Written and performed by the next Ed Sheeran, this is a super relaxing song reminiscent of misty spring mornings.
2. “Crazy Love,” by Audien
This upbeat tune will hype you up for whatever plans you’re about to cancel.
3.“Boston,” by Augustana
If you’re feeling a little angsty, listen to this sentimental tune about needing a fresh start.
4.“Happier,” by Marshmello feat. Bastille
Even though the lyrics are about having to leave someone you love so they can be happy, this beat is still an absolute bop.
5. “Fire,” by Sara Bareilles
All the songs on Sara Bareilles’ “April 5” album are amazing. This one is more of a departure from her previous albums but with the same energy and raw emotion.
6.“Rise,” by Jonas Blue and Jack & Jack
This song will help you rally for anything, whether it’s your 8:20 a.m. class or SPW.
7. “Kiss You While I Can,” by Rascal Flatts
This tune feels like a summer day when you have absolutely no responsibilities or worries at all. I would recommend a listen when you’re daydreaming about life post-finals.
8.“Hell No,” by Ingrid Michaelson
This is my only reaction to last Friday’s snow...in April.
9.“Bring It All Back,” by S Club 7
Undoubtedly the most underrated song of the late 90s. I highly recommend wearing butterfly hair clips and dancing around your bedroom belting this into a hairbrush.
10. “Dreaming,” by Smallpools
If this song doesn’t give you the burst of energy you need to get out of bed or finish your mountain of work, I don’t know what will.
11. “Someone New,” by Hozier
This one’s for everyone who’s constantly eyeing ~someone new~ on the dance floor or in lecture.
12.“Drunk Off Your Love,” by Shwayze and Cisco Adler feat. Sky Blu of LMFAO
This tune will get you even more excited for the promise of warmer days outside, blasting music and chilling with friends.
13. “Same Drugs,” by Chance the Rapper
A great listen while hanging out with friends or pretending to do your work for tomorrow.
