There once was a day when my drive to school was only thirty minutes. Finances and landlords being how they were, my family made a considerable move further from our closest campus: two hours away, to be exact. Since my schedule synced with my sister's, we did a lot of driving together. Though we make for a good pair of compatible road trip buddies, thankfully, we had some good tunes to keep us sane during traffic jams.
While driving home from school the other day I was thinking about how much music impacted my time in school; songs that entertained me during the drawl commute, kept me up late at night to study, and relieve stress. Hope you enjoy this list of memorable songs from my good ol' college days.
Feel free to share! What songs did you love or are memorable from your college experience?
Adele - Rolling in the Deep
Let's be honest: any hit song from her 19 or 21 record could be on this list.
Frozen - Let It Go
Emeli Sande - Next to Me
Glee - Roots Before Branches
Jay-Z ft. Alicia Keys - Empire State of Mind
Katy Perry - Part of Me
Quite possibly one of my favorite modern pop queens ever. Any song from California Girls or Prism is a favorite.
Pharrell Williams - Happy
Kelly Clarkson - People Like Us
Lady Gaga - Edge of GloryAs far back as Paparazzi and Bad Romance, Lady Gaga delivered so many songs that were instant hits. I wouldn't call myself a hardcore fan of hers but it's hard not to appreciate what an pop influence she became.
Pink - Try
Ryn Weaver - Octahate
