POV: You’re having a #tough day on campus because you overslept which means you had to speed walk to class (highly decaffeinated) which means your hair got all frizzy which means you’re not a happy camper, to say the least. When you leave class, you put your AirPods in and start listening to your latest jam, “Better” by ZAYN...and suddenly, all of your stress fades away. Sometimes, that’s all it comes down to: finding the perfect song for the perfect moment. That’s why I've put together a “Tiger Tunes” playlist that coordinates Princeton-specific experiences. Find out when to listen to each song, and scroll down to see the full playlist on Spotify!
