Kiss Me~ Sixpence None The Richer

Hunger of The Pine~ alt-J

Cross My Mind~ Twin Forks

Death’s Song~ City and Colour

The Funeral~ Band of Horses

Beggin For Thread~ BANKS

The Collection~ Ennio Morricone (So Good)

The Swan~ Carnival of the Animals

Pride & Prejudice Soundtrack

Lord of the Rings Soundtrack

…….Another great option is to just visit Songza, a free website that lets you listen to music based on genre, mood, or even what activity you are doing (like studying).

Happy Midterms!

    Hi Sarah,

    I arbitrarily clicked on “The Swan~Carnival of Animals” YouTube video you listed and discovered I’ve heard that song many times in study music playlists. (I use 8tracks instead of Songza). The YouTube video description listed the composer’s bio. My Friday revelation: I love the compositions of Saint-Saëns!

    Is Saint-Saëns one of your preferred composers or is “The Swan” simply a fly-by favorite?

    Hey 🙂
    I do like a lot of his work, but The Swan in by far my favourite. My favourite composer is definitely Ennio Morricone whose collection is also listed in my blog. He does a lot of film scores and he is amazing!
