Soundtrack to Norwegian TV/Web show SKAM
An eclectic mix of old and new tracks, jam out to nostalgic tunes and discover new ones as you crank out that essay.

SKAM ran for 4 seasons, and was set to over 190 songs so there is no end to the fun, chill tracks.
Soundtrack to the Undertale game
Utilising the theory that game music helps you study, mulling over letters and numbers will be transformed into an adventure alongside the simple and sweet tunes of 8-bit fantasy. With adorable starting menu tunes and perking jams like Megalomania, battle your homework like the human battles Sans!
The age old saying of classical music helps growth can be tried out with literally hundreds of videos on Youtube. Just pick your favorite composer and enjoy an over 2-hour compilation of sweet tunes, rousing ballads, and resonating orchestrals.
Have a party in your own head! Drone out the scattered thoughts in your head with DJ Snake, repetitive lyrics and a standard bass drop with some techno and dance tunes. Their consitencies may even influence yours.
Try something new! Random compilations of Western ballads, piano/guitar instrumentals, and stuff you haven’t heard before will steer you to unconsciously stay awake with pure curiosity.
Worried you’ll wander too far in playlist building itself? Go straight to ambient sounds (rain, wind, cafe chatter without the nuisance, or deep sea sounds) But be warned, this might lead to falling asleep as destressing tunes are designed to lull you to a state of not-thinking.
