The Ultimate Finals Playlist

Finals suck. Whether you’re writing a 15-page research paper, working on a presentation with a group of nitwits or studying for what seems like your 234897th Spanish final, it’s hard to see the gleaming light (summer) at the end of the tunnel (finals). Lucky for you, I don’t feel like writing my research paper, working on my presentation or studying for my Spanish final, so I made The Ultimate Finals Playlist. I have a long, decorated history with creating awesome study playlists, just look at Pregame the Library, my playlist of rap that’s made for studying. Or you can check our Crunch Time, which is perfect to cram to. There’s finalzzzz and also finalz yo, which are both similar and very different. But none of those stellar playlists compare to  The Ultimate Finals Playlist. So sit back, relax (or try not to stress out too much), plug in your headphones and enjoy some sweet tunes.
