Like all milestones in life, freshers’ week will have its very own soundtrack you’ll play over and over in your head for years to come. To give you a taste of what to expect I’ve put together the ultimate freshers’ playlist, from some of the biggest songs of 2017 to classic tracks that frankly need no introduction…
The Rebound Song
Song – Shout Out to My Ex
Artist – Little Mix
Why – One of this year’s biggest tracks, this one’s for all of you on the rebound this freshers’ week.
The Summer Smash
Song – Feels
Artist: Calvin Harris ft. Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry and Big Sean
Why? Arguably the summer anthem of 2017, ‘Feels’ is the latest example of the music industry throwing as many big names together on the same track as humanly possible… The results are less annoying than usual.
Song – Despacito
Artist – Luis Fonsi ft. Daddy Yankee
Why? Because who doesn’t love pretending to know the words to this latin club filler, rhyming the chorus with anything from ‘I love burritos’ to ‘I wear speedos’?
The Emotional One
Song – September Song
Artist – JP Cooper
Why? Freshers’ 2017. I give you your September song.
The Feel Good Tune
Song – That’s What I Like
Artist – Bruno Mars
You’ve got to hand it to Mr Mars. He churns out tracks like it’s no one’s business and most of them are pretty good too… Now, that’s what I like.
The “Let’s Get Smashed”
Song – Shots
Artist – LMAO ft. Lil Jon
Why? Sorry, what was that? You haven’t had enough to drink yet?
The Risqué One
Song – Sexual
Artist – NEIKED ft. Dyo
Why? Well, I’m not going to explain this one…
The Guilty Pleasure
Song – C’est la vie
Artist – B*Witched
Why? Because no freshers is complete without a bit of pop fromage.
Song – Ignition
Artist – R. Kelly
Why? Baby gimme that toot toot…
The One Everybody Loves
Song – Mr Brightside
Artist – The Killers
Why? I challenge you not to mime the lyrics and scream this from the top of your lungs during freshers week. Can’t resist? Thought not.
