Bar Exam Playlist
April 19, 2013 7:49 AM   Subscribe

I am putting together a playlist for bar exam preparations. I am looking for songs that will help ease the pain of studying and have compiled a few from a range of genres. What else can I add to this to make it the ultimate inspirational list of songs? Here are some that I have already chosen: Isley Brothers - Work to Do Jay Z - 99 Problems LL Cool J - Mama said knock you out Beyonce - Run the World (girls) David Bowie - Under Pressure ODB - Got your money Fugees - Killing me softly

Everytime someone posts asking for inspirational music, I recommend Lupe Fiasco - Go Baby. I'm sure that some have developed a reasonable reliance based on my previous actions so I'm estopped from failing to do so now.

Good luck!

I'm a Queen fan, so I love the combo of "We will Rock You" and "We are the Champions" (especially the latter).

But the most inspirational song for me has always been the theme song to Neon Genesis Evangelion. I haven't even seen more than a couple of episodes, but it always makes me feel like I could go out and battle evil alien robots. Warning: link has some perhaps NSFW images and lots of robot apocalypse.

Money - Pink Floyd

An obscure one from my days in Detroit: "Faith and Muscle" by Rhythm Corps. Used to have it on a workout mix tape and found it very motivational.

Well, this probably goes without saying, but any day on which you actually have an exam should start with "Eye of the Tiger" at INSPIRATIONAL volume (preferably on some kind of timer so you can wake up to the stirring opening chords).

Worked for me anyway.

Jay-Z feat. Swizz Beats - On to the Next One.

This is a song that is appropriate, I've found, in any and all life situations.
