It may not feel like it, but the summer has just about reached its midway point. Regardless of whether you’re personally ready to make your return to BU come September, here’s a selection of a few songs that are guaranteed to help you make the season all the more memorable.
“You’re the One,” the latest offering from British electronica goddess Charli XCX, is an irresistible crowd-pleaser. Throw this track on if you’re looking for something fresh to jam out to. Its chorus is an absolute killer and there’s no doubt this will be all over MTV just a couple months from now.
I’m still unsure of whether it’s become societally acceptable to appreciate 19-year-old rapper Kitty Pryde unironically, but I continue to do so regardless. “Orion’s Belt” comes from her rather hilarious haha im sorry EP and features a Bumblebee Tuna-referencing verse from rising rapper Riff Raff. I’m not one to argue the legitimacy of “Orion’s Belt” as a quality rap track, but that beat gets me going like no other.
And just when your estimation of my music taste is perhaps at an all-time low after posting Kitty Pryde…apparently Carly Rae Jepsen has more than one song! A friend randomly turned me onto “Curiosity” a couple weeks back and it wasn’t long before I started listening to the track at least ten times in a row. It may not have Instant Classic written all over it like “Call Me Maybe,” but it’s sure to also bring out some familiar addictive tendencies.
Remember, for those still in Boston for the summer, BU Central is open weekdays from 12-5 as a place to chill, eat lunch, or play pool. We’re also still hiring for the fall and applications can be found on YouDo by clicking under the “Forms” tab here!
Keep on keeping on, y’all.
