Top 5 Songs to Listen to while StudyingPublished on January 21st, 2011.
Recochoku, a popular Japanese site that specializes in music downloads for your mobile phone, held a poll recently. They asked its users to vote for the song which they thought best cheered on students who were preparing to take exams. Here are the top 5 songs.
- ARASHI – Sakura Sake
- YUI – GLORIA
- Kobukuro – YELL
- Kitano Kie – Sakura Saku
- Ikimonogakari – Ima Hashiridaseba
Arashi’s “Sakura Sake” was ranked number one. The song title is similar to the word for success on exams “Sakurasaki”. This is the second year in a row that this song has come in at number one.
The song “YELL” by Kobukuro will be the third time it’s been in the top 5.
You’ve probably noticed, (and if you have not take a look at the lyrics) That most of the songs include Sakura/Cherry Blossoms in their lyrics, along with words of motivation and doing one’s best. Most students take their exams/graduate in the spring when the cherry blossoms bloom. So these songs encourage them when the pressure is on.
So those of us who are in school right now should listen to these songs while studying. I think I just might, since I’ve been assigned to create a font, and I’m feeling pretty stressed now. Of course I will be playing Sakura Sake and Gloria. (<3 Yui)
Oh! And speaking of spring, I am so ready for it right about now. I wish we had Sakura trees where I’m from. ☺
