Subtle Studying Songs

    For Good Days and Bad

    Sometimes when you’re studying, it can be a bit hard to concentrate with lots of background noise or even with none at all. Sometimes a song is the only solution. If you’re like me, and you tend to be more focused while listening to music, then I have the perfect life of songs for you that aren’t too distracting or too subtle.
