Study Buddy Playlist

Study Buddy Playlist

By Jennifer Grudziecki

AMstaticDancing has devised a playlist to make homework less painful—these songs won't distract you with the urge to dance while summarizing the War of 1812 (though they might get you typing in rhythm).

1. "Look at Miss Ohio" by Blind Pilot (originally by Gillian Welch)

2. "Lost in My Mind" by The Head and the Heart

3. "Flightless Bird, American Mouth" by Iron and Wine (Don't be deterred by its Twilight roots-- it's still an awesome song!)

4. "Poison and Wine" by The Civil Wars

5. "If I Die Young (Acoustic)" by The Band Perry (This band always makes me think of Phineas and Ferb.)

6. "Atlas Hands" by Benjamin Francis Leftwich

7. "The General" by Dispatch

8. "Emily's Heart" by Jamie T (The lyrics are so sad, but the video is so cute!)

9. "Paradise" by Coldplay (Coldplay's new album! YAY!)
