The Playlists You Have Always Needed

This moment has been stamped in time. But, you’re stuck.

Shuffle. Skip. Scroll. Repeat. OVERPLAYED.

That “someone” in the car that yells, “Who put this on?” over the song you had just confidently clicked on seconds before— stamped.

Music helps mold moments in time.

We asked one question from a pool of PLNU students: “What is your favorite song?”

Out of all of the situations that take place throughout the day and week, there were plenty of songs that popped through all of our heads. Where were we when we first heard this song and why is it so important for us?

With these suggestions, The Point has curated a few playlists of student’s favorite tracks to listen to during the different parts of the week.

From artists in R&B to the Classical composers, the wide range of students did not hold back on sharing their best ideas for what makes their school week a bit more manageable.

These songs are for the artists we want to blare through the car speakers on the nicest day of the week. This is for the “go-to” song when in need of just a few moments of relaxation. The ‘I am ready to cram a ten page research paper in one night’ sort of track. These playlists were made by you, for you. They are here to add with what you do on the daily, but with the help of a better ambience.

Not only are all of these songs worth the listen, but they are most definitely worth the time stamp.
