My Study Playlists

I've just finished two years of pretty intense studying for the Leaving Cert, and music was a great motivator through those hundreds of hours of study. Here's a sample of the music I used to keep me going - let me know any study music recommendations you have in the comments or on Twitter @frizzyroselle!

Note: I never said the songs weren't cheesy. 



to keep you going when you're bored, tired or both

Non-Stop - Hamilton
Bet On It - High School Musical
This entire Youtube playlist (literally the most motivational thing ever)


for long study periods with minimal distraction

It's Quiet Uptown - Hamilton
Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story - Hamilton
You Could Be Happy - Snow Patrol
Same Love - Macklemore ft. Ryan Lewis
How to Save a Life - The Fray
Photograph - Ed Sheeran
Safe and Sound - Taylor Swift
Back to December - Taylor Swift
Everybody Wants to Rule the World - Lorde
Still Sane - Lorde


for playing through speakers while in the shower after a shitty test grade or particularly stressful week

7 Years - Lukas Graham
Bright - Echosmith
Shut Up and Dance - WALK THE MOON
I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) - The Proclaimers

(Lots of songs from the "Soft" list also go here)


general songs that I listened to a lot while studying

Popular - Mika 
I hate u, i love u - Gnash, Olivia O' Brien

This is obviously an incomplete list, but I think it's a pretty good summary of the songs that got me through all that studying.

Until next time,
