If you’re anything like me, you absolutely cannot study in complete silence. However, too much background noise can also be a big distraction. I’ve compiled a playlist of some calming songs to turn on when it comes time for homework, or when you need to just listen to music and relax. With a carefully crafted list of songs ranging from slow love ballads to upbeat movie mashups, I’m sure there’s something in here for anyone to bob their head along to.

  • Solo – Oh Wonder
  • Turn to Stone – Ingrid Michaelson
  • Wizard of Meh – Pogo
  • Truce – Twenty One Pilots
  • Heaven’s Gate – Dawn Landes and Piers Faccini
  • Portland, Maine – Donovan Woods

  • I Hear a Symphony – Cody Fry
