’60s and ’70s Folk for Studying

Helplessly hoping for an extension.

“Help Me” – Joni Mitchell (Court and Spark)

Really, please help me, I’m drowning in assignments.

“Old Man” – Neil Young (Harvest)

A necessary and classic Canadian addition to your study session.

“Which Will” – Nick Drake (Pink Moon)

A song dreamier than Nick Drake himself.

“Something in the Way She Moves” – James Taylor (James Taylor)

James Taylor: the only person dreamier than Nick Drake.

“Mrs. Robinson” – Simon and Garfunkel (Bookends)

Mrs. Robinson, please give me an ‘A,’ I need to get into grad school.

“Chelsea Morning” – Joni Mitchell (Clouds)

Yes, Joni Mitchell is on this playlist twice. Are you really surprised?

“Alice’s Restaurant” – Arlo Guthrie (Alice’s Restaurant)

Okay, so maybe a terrible song for studying, but everyone needs a break, right?

“Someday Soon” – Judy Collins (Who Knows Where the Time Goes)

Someday soon you will graduate and things will all be okay (who am I kidding?)

“Me and Julio Down By the Schoolyard” – Paul Simon (Paul Simon)

Also a terrible study song, but take another break – you deserve it!

“Don’t Think Twice It’s All Right” – Bob Dylan (The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan)

Don’t think twice, maybe it’s time to give up and watch some Netflix.
