We’re a few days from February, the McDonald’s commercial of months. It’s cold, gray, it marks the end of the NFL season and you probably have to plan some absurd romance-and-sparkles spectacular for Valentine’s Day. Oh, and it’s also a day longer this year.
However, if you’re in college, you already know how to combat seasonal depression. Throw a party! Celebrate every minute of university life before adulthood creeps in. The dark days of winter can be some of the craziest, most memorable in your life. To help motivate you, we’ve compiled the ultimate college playlist of music videos–18 songs that celebrate the college lifestyle and remind you how sweet it is!
Bruce Springsteen –“Glory Days”
Right now you are living the days you’ll be talking about for the rest of your life. No pressure or anything.
Cobra Starship ft. Leighton Meester–“Good Girls Go Bad”
College: where brain cells and morals go to die.
Faith No More–“Epic”
The word you will use any time you recount the prior night’s hijinks.
fun. ft. Janelle Monae–“We Are Young”
Kind of on the nose, but still fun, ya know?
Most nights you probably blow right by tipsy into hammered…
Jamie Foxx–“Blame It”
“Blame it on the alcohol” is the official excuse of the NCAA.
Katy Perry–“I Kissed A Girl”
Fact: Any human who’s gone to college has kissed a girl.
Mac Miller–“Party On 5th Ave”
Every college town has a Fifth Ave.
Meek Mill ft. Young Chris–“House Party”
Much better than Kid ‘N Play’s “House Party.”
Miley Cyrus–“Party In The U.S.A.”
It’s nothing if not accurate. And the girls may want to pose with penis cakes if you play this.
Missy Elliott–“Get Ur Freak On”
The only reason to go to college, really.
Pink–“Get The Party Started”
Just in case people at the party don’t yet realize that the party has started.
Poison–“Nothin’ But A Good Time”
When you look up “college” in the Oxford English Dictionary, this song plays.
Ricky Martin–“She Bangs”
Not quite as cool now that we know he’s talking about a man…but Ricky still makes girls’ butts shake.
Trey Songz–“Bottoms Up”
Because if you don’t see the bottom of your cup, what’s the point of having one?
The Strokes–“Last Nite”
No band personifies “young angst” and “regret” better than The Strokes.
For Sunday morning.
