Music playlist

Music to get you through the week #7

Check out our music playlist for this week and be sure to let us know your suggestions too.

We’ve picked tunes to match your mood, from sleepy Mondays to Friday nights out on the town.

#Monday bloom

“Life is rosy” by Jess Penner

Wander around Coventry campus these days and you’ll find bursts of inspiration everywhere, everything seems to be in bloom now. It seems, therefore, perfect to keep this song in your ears. Life is Rosy provides a soft start to your busy week. It’ll get you right into the mood for the hard work ahead.

“Flowers start to bloom in ever different hue
From violet to pink and blue
I can feel a change, no I am not the same
I’m lucky to be here with you

This feels right feels so bright, bright
All the world somehow starts to shine, shine
With you by my side
Life is rosy…”

#Tuesday – in the library

“One day more” – Les Miserables soundtrack

If you’ve never suffered through an all-nighter in the library before exam day, you haven’t fully experienced student life. So why not enjoy it? Get some music to help you survive the exam day ahead, particularly this great suggestion, One More Day from the musical, Les Miserables. With this song, you can be transported to pre-revolutionary France in 1865, right before battle begins. Does the melody of rebellious spirit make you want to stand up and fight? Just one day more and you’ll be free.

One more dawn
One more day
One day more!

#Wednesday final exam

“F**k it all” – A ‘Let it go’ parody

If you are surrounded by a pile of books or revision notes to read and that final exam is approaching faster than ever, I have a song for you, 
”F**k it all”- the very rude parody version of Disney’s “Let it go”.

It’s actually a bit too rude to post, but you can find the video here!

#Thursday – young wild free

“Happy” by Pharrell Williams

Remember the feeling the moment you stepped out of the exam room? Wasn’t it awesome? It’s pure happiness, just like this song. You’re free like a bird now, so relish every move you can make to this massive, smash-hit tune! This song only makes a good mood better. It doesn’t matter if you’ve scored 70 in your final coursework, kissed a beautiful girl and got her number or just won £5 on a scratchcard – this song is for you.

“Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do”

#Friday BBQ party

“Here’s to never growing up” by Avril Lavigne 

Still in the mood for celebrating? This is a good time to sit down with your friends and look back what you’ve been through together during this semester. How about a BBQ party in the park? Just don’t forget to put on this great song as you reminisce.

“Call up all our friends, go hard this weekend
for no damn reason. I don’t think we’ll ever change
Meet you at the spot, half past ten o’clock
We don’t ever stop, and we’re never gonna change

Say, won’t you stay forever – stay
If you stay forever hey
We can stay forever young

Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs
With the boom box blaring as we’re falling in love
Got a bottle of whatever, but it’s getting us drunk
Singing, here’s to never growing up”

#Saturday packing up

“Paradise” by Coldplay

This song might match your mood if you’re packing for a bank holiday trip and dreaming of “paradise.” It’s perfect if you’re off somewhere new or simply returning back to home sweet home.

“Life goes on, it gets so heavy
The wheel breaks the butterfly
Every tear – a waterfall
In the night, the stormy night,
She closed her eyes
In the night, the stormy night,
away she’d fly.

And dreamed of para- para- paradise
Para- para- paradise
Para- para- paradise
Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh”

#Sunday getaway

“We’re on the run” by Gold Motel

It’s time to go! Click play on this one and enjoy the smell of freedom in the air. You have no more exams and no more coursework. Put away all those boring textbooks and journals and forget the library. You’re on your (bank) holiday!

“Get me away
Can we reach the coast today?
Can we hide the tracks we’ve made?
Can we make it alive?

By the time you let me in your arms, We’re on the run
By the time you let me in your arms, We’re on the run
Buying time until the days are done, We’re on the run
By the time you let me in, I won’t know where to begin…
Or where to stop, where to stop”
