The perfect fall playlist

Now that the dog days of summer are over and we are going into the fall season, you’ll need the ultimate playlist to listen to as you sprint from one side of campus to the other, with your Starbucks in hand as you don your best flannel.

“Closer” by The Chainsmokers and Halsey

This song has been on my top three song list for a while now. It is definitely an instant hit. As soon as it comes on my playlist, it puts an instant pep in my step on my way to my 8 a.m. So whether you are walking to class or in the back seat of an Uber on your way into the city, this song is the perfect fall pick-me-up.

“Cold Water” by Major Lazer feat. Justin Bieber and MØ

Whether you are feeling a little nostalgic about your Justin Bieber phase in middle school or just want a great song to listen to, “Cold Water” should be added to your playlist. With the combination of three great artists of amazing talent, you cannot help but sing along into your hairbrush with JB one last time.

“Mercy” by Shawn Mendes

Shawn Mendes always provides the perfect melody for when you are sitting under your favorite tree on campus with the crisp, newly fallen, leaves around you, or even for when you are feeling overwhelmed by midterm exams on a cloudy fall afternoon. Shawn Mendes and his unique sound is the perfect cure for any situation.

“Hymn for the Weekend” by Coldplay

The title says it all. This Coldplay classic is perfect to turn on when walking (or running) out of your last class on a Friday afternoon. Its infectious beat is one that will keep you going all weekend.

“Fresh Eyes” by Andy Grammer

This song is fairly new to the pop music world, but it is definitely a gem. This Andy Grammer melody is great to listen to when you are having a rough day and need someone to remind you to look at everything and everyone with “fresh eyes.” Definitely a personal favorite of mine!

“Still Falling for You” by Ellie Goulding

Come on, you didn’t think I could get through this whole playlist without some Ellie, did you? With this new single from Goulding, you get a burst of confidence and an overwhelming sense of power that makes you think you can conquer the entire world in four minutes.

“Below My Feet” by Mumford & Sons

When you are studying and need a soft melody to keep you focused, Mumford is always the way to go. Mumford is also perfect for those moments when you are driving or riding the train home after a long day of work and all you want to do is feel centered and grounded. So turn that volume up, and feel at peace with yourself with this song.

“Mr. Brightside” by The Killers

When you are in desperate need for a throwback on a Friday afternoon after classes, “Mr. Brightside” is your song! So crank that volume up in your dorm (but not loud enough for your R.A. to come in) and just dance it out. Let go of all the stress this week has thrown at you and look on the bright side.
