Last October, post- brought you this playlist roundup to suit all of your fall music needs. But so much has happened since then: a deer has broken and entered into MoChamp lounge, everyone and their lab partner have gotten COVID-19, mask mandates have been lifted, record-breaking blizzards have hit Providence, and you have scrolled through dozens of Instagram photo dumps of spring break trips. It seems only right that you should have an updated music selection to account for these collective life events. So, without further ado, here are four more ten-song playlists to provide a soundtrack for the rest of your semester.
There are plenty of reasons to start working out this spring. For one, everyone could use some relief from the stress of late midterms (I'm looking at you, STEM classes). Staying active can also strengthen your immune system to fight off the constant cough and runny nose you've had since winter break. Plus, a workout playlist will help you stay motivated in the gym so that you can go into this summer looking like Chris Pratt (post-Parks and Rec). Don't forget to give your other Airpod to your most dedicated gym bro and share a touching romantic moment!
