Playlist of the week: An escape from studying

Playlist of the week: An escape from studying
Kaitlyn Close

With classes kicking into full swing, most of us don’t have the time to sit down and watch a movie or binge our favorite series. Whether you’re cramming for your first exam or trying not to think about the classwork you have to do, a little bit of escapism can’t hurt. A combination of movies and television from the past 25 years provide the songs from classic scenes and intros that you can fantasize about. 

From “Shrek” to “Stranger Things,” this playlist can help you take a break from the real world and enter into iconic scenes from another. A mix of TikTok favorites, such as “Visions of Gideon” from the heartbreaking “Call Me By Your Name” and “Possibility” from “Twilight” can not only give you a break from the real world, but can also help you discover new musicians.

Our Goal

We hope you appreciate this article! Before you move on, our student staff wanted to ask if you would consider supporting The Appalachian's award-winning journalism. We are celebrating our 90th anniversary of The Appalachian in 2024!

We receive funding from the university, which helps us to compensate our students for the work they do for The Appalachian. However, the bulk of our operational expenses — from printing and website hosting to training and entering our work into competitions — is dependent upon advertising revenue and donations. We cannot exist without the financial and educational support of our fellow departments on campus, our local and regional businesses, and donations of money and time from alumni, parents, subscribers and friends.

Our journalism is produced to serve the public interest, both on campus and within the community. From anywhere in the world, readers can access our paywall-free journalism, through our website, through our email newsletter, and through our social media channels. Our supporters help to keep us editorially independent, user-friendly, and accessible to everyone.

If you can, please consider supporting us with a financial gift from $10. We appreciate your consideration and support of student journalism at Appalachian State University. If you prefer to make a tax-deductible donation, or if you would prefer to make a recurring monthly gift, please give to The Appalachian Student News Fund through the university here: https://securelb.imodules.com/s/1727/cg20/form.aspx?sid=1727&gid=2&pgid=392&cid=1011&dids=418.15&bledit=1&sort=1.
