Procrastinate To Your Fullest Potential: Your 2013 Finals Study Playlist

While studying your brains out doesn’t always guarantee a better grade, it definitely offers the illusion of a better grade. And since its officially the time of year where students of all ages get to make Facebook statuses designed to elicit sympathy, it’s also time for the accompanying finals study playlist.

Not all finals playlists are created equal–this is more designed for the all night power trip. A few coffees/red bulls/substances deep, overtaken by a rare combination of ceaseless adrenaline, higher focus, and deadline-driven thought. It’s the type of mood you only really get to have twice a year, and it’s definitely one to appreciate. Below, the accompanying soundtrack:

1. Your Hand In Mine – Explosions In The Sky

2. Game Of Thrones Theme – Game Of Thrones

3. Let It Go – Dragonette

4. Kyoto – Skrillex ft. Sirah

5. Life – Jon Bellion – At only 22, he’s gotten some major play in the industry with a writing credit for Eminem & Rihanna’s The Monster. Not the worst. He’s pretty solid as well.


6. Headlines – Drake

7. You – Ha Ha Ha – Charli XCX

8. Make It Home – Hoodie Allen ft. Kina Grannis

9. Crazy For This Girl – Evan and Jaron

14. Roar – Katy Perry
