We asked you on Instagram to send us your favorite motivational songs and we created a playlist of suggestions. They’re guaranteed to make you sing, or at least nod your head on your walk to campus.
Tondo—Disclosure, Eko Roosevelt
A classic Shapes clun night that I’m sure many of you already have in your playlists is this banger. This song will make you forget you’re stuck in Nottingham until at least May and take you on a journey everywhere with sand, sea and good vibes.
Industry Babe – Lis Nas X, Jack Harlow
You can’t go wrong with a bit of Lil Nas and Jack. This song will make your head spin on your way to George Green.
Douha (Mali Mali) — Disclosure, Fatoumata Diawara
If Tondo was up your alley then this track will be too, this song is best played at a press as it’s an amazing mood booster. It’s personally one of my favorite songs.
Die MF Die — Dope
This piece of metal from 2001 may not sound hugely motivating to the simple-minded. However, you might find it to be an amazing option when you’re doing an intense sprint in the gym or have recently received a horrifying essay grade.
At the End of the Line — Gerry Rafferty
Probably the Ying from the previous Yang songs. Most likely following a midterm breakdown, this song will help you channel your inner zen and get you through the rest of the term.
Bad Blood – Taylor Swift
Before the City Girls and Meghan thee Stallion, there was 2014 #girlboss, Taylor Swift. This song will take you back to the mid-2010s, that is, the good old days, and is guaranteed to get you excited and ready to conquer the day.
Bamboleo — Gipsy Kings
Sometimes the best motivation is to forget about all your problems (says a wise man somewhere). This song will transport you to the land of Sangrias and Salsa – Spain.
Making Time – Lana Del Ray
If you’ve been part of the Notts romance trend, this song will probably sound like the therapy you’ve always needed.
Mujeriogo — Ryan Castro
One of the funniest songs on the list, this song will have you shaking your hips in the mirror for a productive day.
Sentiment — COIN
This 2017 track by the American pop-rock band is a great feel-good song to help you get out of the house.
Pretty Freestyle Slut — Saweetie
Sometimes all you need to pick yourself up is a song that reminds you of the “bad b” that you are, and that song is it.
Cha Cha Slide — DJ Casper
A cheeky classic never hurt anyone. Sometimes all you need is a little Cha Cha slide, and that’s fine.
Part Time Lover – Stevie Wonder
A theme from the classics, this will probably take you back to when your parents played it on the car radio on their way to school.
Murder on the Dance Floor – Sophie Ellis-Baxter
Another feel-good tune, this song will convince you that nothing can stand in the way of your dreams, or at least get a premiere on this exam.
10 years — Daõi Freyr
If you love a good old Eurovision banger, then this fun Icelandic song is sure to become the anthem of the rest of your year.
If you’re a lover of Shrek, classics, funky music, or all three, this song will get you through every long Monday morning, breaking up, and breaking down.
