10 Songs to help you ride through Winter Break (Add your own!)

It’s a new year and the start of a new quarter (or semester). This is also the time of the Post-holiday Blues. None of us want to get out of bed, let alone study.

Winter quarter is the worst. You just finished a 3 week break full of festivities and family time. Before that, you had a break to eat a huge meal while assimilating with your family again.

Thanksgiving table

Now, you are bombarded with assignments and projects with no breaks for approximately the next 10 weeks.

At least there is coffee.

AND music!

Here is a list of 10 songs that will boost your mood and help you ride out Winter Quarter.

Yes, everyone has a different taste in songs. You may like some, you may like none. That’s why there is a comment section below! Share songs that you listen to while you are studying or taking a break from studying.

The River Flows in You – Yiruma

This song is too good. It’s perfect for those bus rides to class and for a self-reflection study break where you ponder if college is worth it. Usually you will decide it is while you listen to this.

Chasing the Sun – Hilary Duff

Yes. You may remember her as Lizzie Mcguire. But now she is 28, a mother, and singing/acting again. Many of us may relate to her daydream video since we may not see the sun for another 3 months. At least there is hope 🙂

Never Gonna Give You Up –Rick Astley

Don’t Stop Me Now – Queen

It’s Queen. No explanation necessary.

Crystallize – Lindsey Stirling

Any of her original songs. You can’t go wrong.

Rey’s Theme – John Williams

Movie soundtracks can really help while writing long papers. And who’s better to think about than Rey? This one isn’t leaving our work playlist anytime soon.

I’m not Afraid -Eminem

For a laugh, check out Eminem’s My Salsa song. You’ll never look at him the same again.

 

Survivor – Destiny’s Child

We all need a voice to tell us we will make it through. This song does it for some of us and who else wants to hang out at this beautiful beach?

It’s My Life – Bon Jovi

This song is especially awesome when you choose a major that your parents don’t agree with.

Here Comes the Sun – Beatles

Once Spring comes a bit closer, this song will be even more relevant. It will be come sooner than you know it.
