Q&A – What Are Good Songs to Listen to While You Study?

Question:

What’s a good playlist to listen to while you study?

Answer:

I wrote about this when I first launched the site because I am SO PASSIONATE about music, I wanted to share my favorites right away with you! Although they are more upbeat, (and not the best study music.) they are some of my favorite songs in general!  Here are my recommendations, with their videos.

There are lots of posts on the site about music, but now I want to hear from you. What do YOU listen to when you study? Share your favorite songs in the comments below.

    I listen to mostly Celtic music- from the slow songs like Scarborough Fair, to Punk-Rock like Take to the Sky, to the comical songs like Another Irish Drinking Song.

    I’m homeschooled, so I listen to music all day when I do my work. It’s hard to find a good song to listen to. All the songs I know don’t work because I find myself singing with them and concentrating more on the words of the song than the words of the lesson. I also don’t like listening to song I don’t know, it’s just weird. I bet you’re thinking “You can’t listen to anything then!”, that’s what I thought too until a few weeks ago. You see, I know so many christian artists I can’t even count them, but one of my favorites is Kari Jobe. When I was looking at her songs I saw that she makes Spanish versions of her songs. I tried listening to them and it was perfect! You know the tune, but it’s like, impossible to learn the words without reading them! It was the PERFECT school music! You HAVE to try it!!!

    So I’ve only ever listened to Christian, classical, and country music, but lately I decided to “branch out” and listen to some other genres. And honestly ladies, I found NO encouragement, NO hope, NO joy, and absolutely nothing pure, beautiful or lovely in secular music, and I don’t want to listen to it ever again. I know there are plenty of good songs out there that aren’t classified as “Christian”- I’ve heard a few! 🙂 – but I can wholeheartedly say that true, God-honoring worship music is my favorite music to listen to. When I’m studying, I love to listen to the Prince Caspian soundtrack from the Chronicles of Narnia! It’s so inspiring! 🙂

    COLDPLAY! They are a more mainstream band that does not have filthy words or comments in their songs. I got their newest album and love it! They remind me of Lifehouse sort of–clean, good message, etc. I love them because I can relate to a lot of their songs. Just a thought. 🙂

    I am not trying to be judgemental, and i hope no one gets offended but on the song list, there wasn’t a single Christian song, and that kind of defeats the purpose of this webpage because this IS a Christian webpage, right?

    A good Christian rock band is House of Heroes- they are very original and my favorite rock band period. They have a few cute love songs too.
    I also really enjoy show tunes (from Disney movies or Les Miserables etc.), anything I can sing and dance to (when no ones around lol).
