School is officially back in session.
For the Hermiones of this world, this is amazing news. For everyone else, the disappointment is similar to when you remember that JK has said that she’ll never write another book about Harry *sob*.
Either way, to help you keep that summer holiday feeling alive a little while longer, we’ve put together a playlist of our favourite holiday tunes.
DNCE – Toothbrush
Baby, you don’t have to rush. When school goes back and the homework starts mounting up again it can be hard to hold onto that summer feeling. Thank god for Friday night sleepovers.
Madonna – Holiday
The lyrics say it all:
“If we took a holiday/ Took some time to celebrate/ Just one day out of life/ It would be, it would be so nice.” It WOULD be nice, wouldn’t it? Nicer than GCSE algebra.
Maggie Rogers – Alaska
Maggie Rogers’ voice sounds like what we imagine a woodland elf might sound like. Let her beautiful voice sooth your back to school woes.
Metronomy – Night Owl
This might be the weirdest video clip in the world but this song is perfect for the bus ride to school and reflecting on how many new freckles you picked up this summer.
Justin Timberlake – Can’t Stop the Feeling
We know you’ve all heard it a thousand times but don’t tell us it doesn’t want to make you get up and dance. Ok, but you’re lying. Holidays might be over but JT isn’t going anywhere, which is a pretty good thing to dance about.
Closer – Chainsmokers ft Halsey
Arguably the song of the summer. We have had this song on repeat for the last few days and haven’t been able to resist the nodding dog head-bop that goes along with it.
Stooshe – Let it go
Nope, we’re not talking about the one sung by Elsa. The perfect song for when you’re getting ready for school or dancing around the field with your friends.
Destiny’s Child – Survivor
You might be back at school, but like Queen Bey says, you’re a survivor. You’ve totally got this, girl.
