While studying, restless students tend to pop in their earbuds to mute out inevitable distractions. 

You may think it helps, but what happens when your favorite jam comes up and you can’t help but hum to the beat? Now you’re fully distracted and the idea of studying is in the back of your mind. Pick a playlist free of lyrics on Spotify. When you listen to music with lyrics, your mind is competing for memory space. 

Remember that you’re studying, so you need to soak up and retain as much information as possible. Spotify is currently shining its spotlight on seven playlists created just for studying without lyrics. 

 

1. First, we have Intense Studying created by Spotify. The playlist is a mix of sonatas, concertos, and music that may relax you to the point of sleep.  Though the songs are actually meant to relax you, your body and mind. A few pieces with upbeat tempos are snuck in to keep you on your toes, to stay awake, and keep your brain sharp and focused.

 

2. Next, we have Superior Study Playlist created by Taylor Diem. The playlist includes a variety of instrumentals to your favorite songs, but no lyrics.  It also includes instrumentals used in movies such as, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.”

 

3. Workday Lounge, created by Spotify, is perfect for the work environment. Mind you, the songs are not just boring elevator music. The music gives the listener a serene feeling in order to relax them from their busy minds. Take a deep breath and open that Environmental Science textbook and you’ll be fine.

 

4.  Spotify is on a roll creating a playlist for students titled Acoustic Concentration. The songs are strictly acoustic and feature over a dozen guitarists. It’s a nice transition from pianos, harps, and violins.

 

5. Alright, so you gave sonatas and concertos a listen. Even acoustic music, but it’s not our style. NO LYRICS! created by Perryhan includes the 90’s Grunge that makes our heads bop as we type our five-page essays and maybe put a smile on that sleep-deprived face. The Hipster Orchestra covers a majority of our favorites, from “Smells Like Teen Spirit” to “Seven Nation Army.” You’ll feel confident as you study for your Finals.

 

6. Study Mix (No lyrics) includes songs such as “Royals” and “Wake Me Up” performed by the Vitamin String Quartet. You will be thanking creator mogirl97 for the upbeat playlist. If you feel tempted to sing, take a break and stretch. One of the most important things to do while studying is to take care of your body. The human body is not used to staying in the same position. 

 

7. If the upbeat tempo from the previous playlist didn’t cut it for you, don’t fret. EDM Study No Lyrics consists of electronic dance music for kinesthetic learners.  Those who must be moving in order to concentrate. You can nod along to the playlist put together by Coffierf. 

It may be a healthier choice than your third cup of coffee. Lastly, Best of luck during your study sessions.
