It’s Results Day! The day you’ve been waiting/dreading for what feels like the last 173647684 days of your life. Your head’s all over the place and you don’t know how to deal with it. Luckily for you, we do! All you need is a little tonic for the soul – music. So here it is, our Results Day Playlist! Guaranteed to make Doomsday bearable, and maybe even enjoyable.
1. Eye Of The Tiger – Survivor
If it’s good enough to get Rocky ready for the biggest fight of his life, it’s definitely good enough to get you ready to face your results!
2. I Gotta Feeling – The Black Eyed Peas
Yes! Today is going to be a good day! You are going to go out there, grab results day by the neck and own it!
3. Hey Ya – OutKast
The ultimate feel-good song of the 2000’s! If this doesn’t put you in a good mood, nothing will.
4. Happy – Pharrell Williams
The 2010’s reincarnation of Hey Ya! Let Pharrell’s dulcet tones wash over you as you clap along till you feel like a room without a roof (whatever that means).
5. Dog Days Are Over – Florence and The Machine
You’ve got your results, you’re going to uni and now you can finally enjoy the rest of the summer without the cloud of Results Day hanging over you head. The dog days are over!
6. We Are The Champions – Queen
You’ve slayed the beast that is Results Day. Say it loud and say it proud. You are a champion!
7. Big Girls Cry – Sia
Okay, so not everyone gets the perfect results. Sometimes, things happen and you don’t do as well as you’d hoped. It’s okay to let it out! Sometimes, big girls (and boys) cry too.
8. Boulevard of Broken Dreams – Green Day
We all need to have a good sulk when things don’t go our way. This Green Day classic will draw out your inner angsty teen and help you vent those feelings of disappointment.
9. It’s Not Over – Daughtry
But wait, it’s not over! So what if you didn’t get into your first choice? It’s not the end of the world, guys. There’s always a silver lining to every cloud. And the silver lining for this particular cloud is CLEARING!
10. Stronger – Kelly Clarkson
You’re not giving up without a fight are you!? What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, remember? Get on that phone, call the Clearing hotlines and secure your place at uni!
11. SWERLK – Scissor Sisters
So you’ve called the Clearing hotline and they’ve offered you a place! And guess what, the uni that you got an offer from is even better than the one you put down as your first choice. This calls for celebrations! Jord, our head honcho here at Aston Life swears by this song for when you feel the need to SWERLK!
