Fixat10ns: The Perfect Packing Playlist


[8tracks width=”300″ height=”250″ playops=”” url=”″]

Packing to go back to school is a task that you are probably better off doing little by little, but  inevitably you will procrastinate and cram it all into the hours just before leaving.  Here is a playlist to get you through the struggle of shoving 5 suitcases-worth of clothes into only three.

So Good – B.O.B Whether you’re coming from nearby Maryland or all the way from Paris, B.O.B’s 2012 hit will get you excited about traveling

One Week – Barenaked Ladies Not only is it extremely catchy and upbeat, but it’s also a friendly reminder that you will soon be back at school (and have a limited time to pack)!

The Opposite of Adults – Chiddy Bang Here’s a song to simply get you ready to go back to school and get amped to hit the party scene again.  It’s upbeat, the bass bumps, and it’s all about having fun.

Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked – Cage the Elephants Packing can be daunting, but as the lyrics of this song suggest, nothing in the world is free. You have to keep on trucking to get back to the glorious Hilltop.

Mr. Jones – The Counting Crows Not much needs to be said for this one, as it is just a good song to sing along to, and one that generally puts a smile on anyone’s face.

Shake Me Like a Monkey – Dave Matthews Band Just like Mr. Jones, this is just an upbeat and fun song that will help take your mind off of packing, and having to sit inside instead of enjoying every last minute of summer.

Take It Easy – The Eagles While all of your packing does need to get done, it shouldn’t be something that you freak out about.  Take some advice from The Eagles and take a deep breath.

A Little Less Conversation – Elvis Presley The King turned out a great packing hit with this one, as the song is fast paced, and is a subtle reminder to quit messing around and just get your suitcases filled, so you can go out and have more fun.

A Little Party Never Killed Nobody – Fergie Another song to get you excited to get back to Georgetown, see your friends, and realize that the struggle of packing was totally worth it.

No Such Thing – John Mayer Most of John Mayer’s songs, while upbeat, also have a calming effect, which can’t be overrated while flying around to do last minute preparations.

The Boys of Summer – Don Henley At some point during every packing frenzy, there is time for reflection, and the realization that another summer has come to an end.  Don Henley’s summer classic is a great way to look back on all the fun you had during the summer.

Send Me On My Way – Rusted Root And you’re finally done packing! Say goodbye to your hometown, and hello Georgetown, because it is time to go.
