Playlist of the week: Housing Edition

Whether you’re going to be living the Lannon Hall life, constantly chasing the shuttle from Lancaster Courts, or signing a lease for an off-campus house in a step toward #adulting, figuring out housing for the upcoming year tends to be stressful. Housing selection is approaching fast, and it may seem like everyone else already has it all figured out. If panic is setting in and you and your roommates can’t decide where you want to spend the next year, put on this playlist and read through our Housing Inserts (pages 6-9) to help you figure it all out.

1. “Our House” by Madness
Yes, this is the song from the Maxwell House commercial. But really, as a college student, home is where the coffee is, right? If you can’t imagine yourself waking up in the morning and praying that the Keurig will brew a little faster, is that really the right place for you to live?

2. “I’ll Be There For You” by The Remembrandts
Better known to everyone as the “Friends” theme, this song is the quintessential “living with your best friends” song. Even if you slept through your alarm, burned your breakfast, and bombed your finance test, don’t worry…Your friends love you anyway, and like the song says, they’ll always be there for you.

3. “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” by Wham!
You’re living with your best friends. Everyone is bound to have a 9:05 class. Even if your roomies are not morning people, and even if they’re probably going to glare at you until they’ve had their four cups of coffee, do them a favor and make sure they realize they have class in half an hour. Wake them up before you go; they might be mad about it in the moment, but they’ll get over it.

4. “Hold On, We’re Going Home” by Drake
Whether you’re waiting for an Uber after a long night out, trudging home from Club Lib, or just looking forward to sitting on the couch with your roommates and watching the latest episode of “Game of Thrones”—this is the perfect song to remind you that home is never too far away.

5. “My House” by Flo Rida
There is no denying that this song is the jam. It’s the perfect party track to blast while you’re unpacking on the day your lease starts. Or, like Flo Rida says, “open up the champagne, pop!” after you’ve signed off on your housing agreement and finally conquered the insanity that is figuring out housing plans. It’s your house now, so play that music too loud.
