Playlist of the week: Frolicking in a field

Playlist+of+the+week%3A+Frolicking+in+a+field

Ignoring the jumps from 70° to 40° the past few days, Boone is well on its way to warmer days. Days when Sanford Mall is full of students playing Spikeball, hanging in their ENOs and enjoying the sunshine. This is the time of year when Boone is in full bloom, serving as a sign classes are almost over. Unfortunately, it is also a sign finals are coming up, which means some people are trapped in the library and are unable to go outside during the beautiful weather.

It is for that exact reason this playlist is full of songs to imagine you are frolicking in a field and not worrying about your plans for the summer. An absolute classic for springtime — and one for all the maladaptive daydreamers — that kicks off this week’s playlist is “Soldier, Poet, King” by The Oh Hellos with plenty of Hozier to follow. Down the line is “Light My Love” by Greta Van Fleet for those who need something a bit heavier, as well as “In Dreams” by Sierra Ferrell for a little more country. Whether you’re stuck cramming for finals in the library or actually frolicking along the Greenway, do it with some cottagecore spring vibes music.

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.
