Feel it Still, Portugal. The Man
This song is for walking through WSP on a perfect, sunny day. With over 80 million listens on Spotify, “Feel it Still” is a must-add for your playlist!

“Provider” is the best for when you’re trying to avoid huge puddles on a rainy day and still make it to class on time. This mellow R&B song is amazing for a relaxed commute this fall semester!
Gold Dust Woman, Fleetwood Mac
Fleetwood Mac’s iconic “Rumours” album is a great throwback jam! Stevie Nicks’ husky vocals accompanied by folk drumming creates a rock ‘n’ roll sound that makes this song unique. “Gold Dust Woman” is a staple song for anyone’s classic rock playlist.
Bad 4 Us, Superfruit
These a cappella veterans just released this tune last summer. It has an old school feel — but with a modern twist! Although it’s a departure from their Pentatonix days, this song's tight harmonies mixed with a cheerful beat make it the epitome of groovy.
Love on Top, Beyonce
You can always count on Beyonce to actually make you want to get up and dance on the way to your 8 am lecture. Whether you listen to "Love on Top" as background music during your walk or as a way to marvel in the magic that is Queen Bey, this song is for you.
Woman, Harry Styles
This song is a combination of mellow, cheery and the hint of rock ’n’ roll will make you forget you’re listening to a post boy band member. The dialogue at the beginning is a breath of fresh air! While you contemplate which celebrity this song is about, don’t forget to add "Woman" to your playlist.
Sunday Candy, Donnie Trumpet and the Social Experiment
This catchy tune will brighten anyone’s long commute with its upbeat vocals and sensational drumbeats. Although “Sunday Candy” is one of the older songs on our list, Chance the Rapper’s melodic lyrics are timeless.
Boys, Charli XCX
This fun-loving new song is the best guilty pleasure in synthetic pop music. Charli XCX’s jam will warm up your day through its lighthearted sound and fun lyrics. The song’s resonant message, coupled with its light harmonies will improve your mood on your way to class.
