New Semester Play List

If you are like me and work in higher education you are probably experiencing a wonderful time of year known as “move-in”, or “add/drop”. Where the days begin at un-holy hours, swilling gallons of coffee, all of the events we prepped for all summer are happening RIGHT NOW, and students are all of a sudden back on campus. EEEEkkk! Is it really fall already??

I feel your stress. I’m right there with you.

What you need is a get-pumped-playlist. It’s a proven scientific fact that fast paced music with a strong base line actually gives you energy (I don’t know the exact study, but you can google it). Seriously this actually works.

So here are my top songs that I have on repeat every morning this week while worshiping the Starbucks gods.

Pompeii by Bastille.

Yes its about a natural disaster where everyone dies, but its just so peppy!

All About That Bass by Meghan Trainor   

All of her sass and a 1950’s housewife style? LOVE HER!

Miss Movin’ On by Fifth Harmony 

You can’t listen to any radio station this summer and not hear this song at least 10 times. Cause its awesome!

Bartender by Lady Antebellum

Night out with the ladies getting over an ex? Sounds like way more fun than I’m having right now.

Shake It by Metro Station

Just try not to dance. Its not possible. Just give in and Shake It!

We Can’t Stop by Miley Cyrus

Yea, she’s a hot mess sometimes but aren’t we all?

Crazy Lucky by Better Than Ezra

Great song. Great lyrics. Catchy hook .

Bottoms Up by Brantley Gilbert

Turnt Up country style with great guitars.

We Are Tonight by Billy Currington

I saw this one live in concert this summer with my guy, and it was a close to a religious experience as I have had yet. Awesome!

Stronger by Kelly Clarkson

“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger…” Long days, little sleep, but the excitement of a new semester? Lets do this!!

Bang Bang by Jessie J

Maybe its the clapping, but this song is just so dang catchy!

Alone Together by Fall Out Boy

Another song from a summer concert and I am just in love with this one. Love me some FallOut Boy!

Boom Clap by Charlie XCX

I first heard this getting on Virgin Airways plane in California and its been on repeat on my ipod ever since. I dare you to try not to dance to it.

Shake It by Taylor Swift

This song just dropped this week and I’ve ready listened to it 50+ times. “Haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate”

So that’s my playlist? Anything you would add? Post up below. Happy Move In Day / Add Drop Week friends!
