Playlist Inspiration

Music is an essential part of our daily lives, we hear all kinds of songs throughout the day. Whether it be listening to the new Drake songs during your commute or just putting on some classical music while studying. It has become ingrained in our routines and most people automatically put it on their playlist while doing other activities. So in this blog, I’ll be suggesting some playlist ideas for different situations!


A lot of people tend to listen to some relaxing music during studying. Listening to relaxing songs while studying can help with overcoming anxiety or stress and can also help with focusing during long study sessions. Another advantage of listening to music while studying is that it helps you recall parts of the material that you studied because you can link it to a certain song that was playing while you were studying that part. Good playlists for studying would be ones with a lot of relaxing music, genres like classical music or slow-beat pop music would fit here.

Examples of artists with relaxing music:

  • Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Billie Eilish, Birdy, Anson Seabra, Chelsea Cutler, Halsey, Sasha Sloan, and Dove Cameron. 

Examples of relaxing instrumental playlists for studying (available on Spotify):

  • Coffee Sop Vibes, Lo-Fi Beats, Jazz in the Background

Working out

Music is also very common during workouts, especially energetic music. This can help to get you hyped up for some intense exercising. You can start out with some slower-paced music during your warmup and have it slowly build up as you get into the more intense parts of your workout. Different types of music can fit different types of workouts. For example, rock music can get you pumped for an intense weightlifting or treadmill session, be it Blink-182, Green Day, My Chemical Romance or Fall Out Boy. Other types of music that could get you fired up could be energetic pop music, like Dua Lipa, Lauv, Sigrid, Julia Michaels or Anne-Marie. These could also be more applicable for less intense workouts.


Another common situation for listening to music is when you’re traveling somewhere or on a commute. There are a lot of possibilities for travel playlists since there is no defined travel music type. Something unique could be playing movie road trip playlists, to mix it up and actually set the tone for the trip. Another option could be to play travel-related songs and immerse yourself in the lyrics while watching the scenery pass by. There are a lot of ways to go with this!

There are a lot of different ways to go about making playlists, some people like to have certain playlists for certain moods. Others just have one big playlist that they put on shuffle whenever they want to. Just try out different things and see what your preferences are!
