15 Best Songs: To listen to when doing homework

If you’re anything like me, you listen to music pretty much all day long. I always listen to music when I’m doing homework, especially if it’s somewhere on campus so that I can drown out all other noises. The problem is that a lot of music can be distracting when you’re already struggling to stay focused. That’s why I’ve made this list. These are the songs that I’ve found that are least intrusive. Many of them have no lyrics at all. A lot of them also possess a motivational tone that will help keep you from passing out at your computer. Enjoy!

Best 15 Songs: To do homework to

  • Jelly 292 –Jimi Hendrix
  • Ocean –John Butler Trio
  • Lenny –Stevie Ray Vaughan
  • Ad Astra Per Aspera –Acceptance
  • Out of My Mind- John Mayer
  • For Martha –Smashing Pumpkins
  • The Birth and Death of the Day –Explosions in the Sky
  • Waltz Into the Moonlight –Tryad
  • Catfish Blues –Jimi Hendrix
  • Shine on You Crazy Diamond (Parts VI-IX) –Pink Floyd
  • Guilty Cubicles –Broken Social Scene
  • Canon. –Zox
  • Svefn-G-Englar –Sigur Rós
  • Red-Eye –The Album Leaf
  • Myke Ptsyon –Starfucker

What song should have I listen to not being on this list? What is a good song while doing homework

No_one • Apr 6, 2022 at 1:59 pm

one good song i like to listen to when being productive is Ginger And Lime by spice rack.

A great song to listen to when just sitting at home or in your room doing homework! it has no lyrics but it is a good song to go with anything you are doing. it is also a little short (about two min)

no_onw • Apr 6, 2022 at 1:26 pm

A good go to homework song for me would have to be ginger and lime by spice rack, it has no lyrics but its a good tune to get you in the mood!

enzo florenzo • Oct 18, 2021 at 10:12 pm

i like sunflower by post malone and swae lee

Sol • Jul 14, 2021 at 12:21 pm

I suggest “Everything Moves” by Bronze Radio Return, its stuck in my head!

Kate • May 23, 2021 at 6:11 pm

I recommend Talking to the Moon by Bruno Mars. There’s also this really cool playlist on Spotify called “Weeknd Homwrk.” I listen to it all the time and I follow it. Its really good for doing schoolwork with.

Sky Singer • Mar 11, 2021 at 5:41 pm

I Like -Good Job- by Alicia Keys.

stinkyman124 • Jan 22, 2021 at 8:57 am

i listen to coconut mall

@bruh_itzjoyce on insta • Jan 20, 2021 at 7:27 pm

I would also second blinding lights. I would also recommend Marmar oso. His songs hit deep they also have a nice flow to it. Post Malone as well, and some rnb would be really good for studying. I don’t know what you would listen to but I listen to these when studying or doing homework and *cough cough* I have A’s and B’s…. Might help you or it might not… And if it doesn’t then hope you find something that does 😉 *peace sign*

Trish Hunt • Jun 7, 2020 at 7:19 am

I second Blinding Lights. There is a 10 hour loop version out there.

Used to listen to Around the World by Daft Punk. It also has a 10 hour loop version.

I’ll have to check out the other recommendations.

WWE KID • Mar 25, 2020 at 6:37 pm

I think a Great Song that should go onto that list is “Blinding Lights” by the weeknd

Acacia • Oct 8, 2010 at 12:22 pm

I would have thought that too, but now Hendrix is pretty much all I listen to while studying. Something about that guitar really helps me focus. Give it a try before you write it off.

Joe S • Oct 7, 2010 at 2:39 pm

jimi hendrix would be the last thing I would listen to when studying.

(2023) Best Homework Songs to Listen While Study

homework songs

  • Post author By admin
  • September 21, 2022

Doing homework is a very boring thing.

It is tough to make your mind ready for homework, but staying focused on your homework is the more challenging.

Do you also feel bored while doing your homework?

I do not know about you, but when I was a student, I always started feeling bored and uninterested just by hearing the name of homework.

But then I started using a magical thing that changed my boring homework session to a fun session.

That magical thing is homework songs.

If you do not know about homework songs, then these are the songs that you can hear while doing your homework.

There is no particular category of these types of songs; these are entirely based on your taste in music.

But some music makers create such songs that fulfil the requirements of being a homework song.

In today’s blog, I will suggest many homework songs that you can use as your homework song.

There will be some songs that were produced as homework songs. 

And others will be the songs that are regular songs, but you still can use them as homework songs.

This will be a detailed blog about homework songs, so read it till the end.

Table of Contents

How to Choose a Homework Song?

Before going to the suggestions, let me tell you how to choose a homework song.

In my suggestion list, you will get all types of homework songs. 

Some songs will follow the steps that I will tell you in this topic.

And some will not.

I will do this to increase the number of options for you.

But I designed a checklist that you should check before choosing a homework song.

The first thing you should check is that there should not be lyrics in your homework songs.

Lyrics can distract you from your homework, so always choose the song with no vocals.

If you have a favourite song that has lyrics, you can find its music on the internet. 

You can do this, but I will not suggest this even.

Because if you have a favourite song, then there is very much possibility that you will already know the lyrics.

And when you play the music of that song, then there is a very high possibility that music will change your homework session in a music party.

Because if you know the lyrics and your favourite song music plays, then no one can stop you from singing it.

Relaxing Music

You can select any music genre as your homework song.

But most people suggest that the song you are going to select for homework should be relaxing.

So, your first priority should be a relaxing song. 

A relaxing song will help you relax your mind while doing your homework.

Not just with homework, if you want to do any other work as well and feel stressed; you can use these songs there also.

Below, I shared a complete list of relaxing songs that you can use as homework songs.

It would be best to try to use long mixes of songs for your homework.

There are a lot of 1 to 2 hours (Even longer than this) long mixes that are present on YouTube. 

You can choose them according to yourself.

Sometimes, your homework session can be very long, like 3 to 4 hours. 

In those times, these long mixes will help you a lot.

If you are using these extended mixes, then you do not have to replay or change your song. 

By this, you can focus on your homework more appropriately.

You also can use the loop feature, but these mixes are very well edited, so you get a lot better experience in these mixes.

So, This was a small checklist of 3 points about choosing homework songs.

You should consider these points while choosing a song for your homework.

But, it is not mandatory that you have to follow all these points and only then you can choose a good song.

If you have another song that you think will help you focus on your homework, you can choose that.

I also shared those types of songs in this blog that do not follow these three rules.

Below, you will find a list of songs that follow these rules and the songs that are entirely opposite.

Best Homework Songs For Your Boring Sessions

I hope you understand the above rules that I have shared; I should start my suggestion list now.

These are some of the best songs for homework that everyone suggests; this list is not based on a single category.

You will find different kinds of songs on this list. 

If you want songs category-wise, then you can scroll a little in this blog.

For now, here are some best homework songs.

Most of the songs that I have shared are the instrumental version of the original songs, so all the credits goes to the respected owners of the songs.

Homework Songs With My Checklist

Relaxing songs are the best when you have to do study or homework.

These songs help you relax your mind and increase your concentration and focus.

Moreover, it also helps you to avoid distractions around you.

That’s why I thought to make a different list of just relaxing songs, try to choose a song from this list.

It will help you a lot with your homework. 

If you consider relaxing music boring, then you don’t have to worry.

After this list, you will find some fun and sad homework songs as well.

But for now, here is the list of some best relaxing songs that you can use for homework songs.

Best Relaxing Songs For Homework

Relaxing songs are the best, when you have to do study or homework.

These songs help you to relax your mind and to increase your concentration and focus.

Best Fun Songs For Homework

This was one of the most challenging lists to select.

Fun songs that are also for homework; It was a pretty challenging task.

But after some research, I have selected some songs that are fun and you can use them for homework.

Some of these songs have Lyrics. 

That’s why before choosing a song from this list, think for some time.

I will suggest you test every song from this list and then decide which song works better for you.

1. Life ain’t fair music

There are two versions of this song, one with lyrics and one without lyrics.

Its version without lyrics is just on another level; it gives me chills every time I hear it.

Its beats drops are just crazy and fire.

If you watch TikTok or Instagram reels, then I am sure you have heard it.

You can use this song as your homework song. It is a good song, no matter how much time you listen to it, you never get bored.

One problem about this song is that its without lyrics version is not available on Spotify.

But you can hear it from YouTube, just type “life ain’t fair,” and this song will be in front of you.

You can put this song on loop and can do your homework.

2. Fairytale (Alexander Rybak)

If you like the violin, then this song is for you, and if you do not like it, then this song will make you love the violin.

This song has lyrics, but its music is so great that you will find thousands of without lyrics versions of this song.

The music of this song will give you another level of excitement.

You can use this song while doing your homework, but keep one thing in mind, don’t start vibing with this song.

Because it will make you vibe, and then you will get distracted.

3. NF – The Search (Bass Boosted)

“The beat drop of this song slaps harder than my dad’s belt” I had read this line from this song comment section.

And it is entirely correct; this song just fills another level of energy.

I first heard that song on social media, and I liked it so much that I searched for it on YouTube.

It took some time to find this song as I did not know the song’s name, but then I finally found it.

The name of the official song is NF – The Search, and it is available on the NFrealmusic YouTube channel. 

It is a good song, but its bass boosted version makes it much better.

You can choose this song for your homework, but one problem with this song is that it has Lyrics.

Best Study Playlists - Study Music, Focus Music

Arizona Online

  • Online Learning Community

Everybody has their own routine for how to study for exams, do homework, read or focus on a particular task. Listening to a study playlist is a great way to center your attention and lift your mood. Listening to music can also reduce stress, which is a plus when it comes to balancing a busy schedule of work, school and family!

Music Therapy has proven that you can process a wide range of emotions from excitement to thoughtfulness depending on what type of music you listen to. When we’re studying, we’re probably aiming for thoughtfulness. Research has also shown music has the potential to boost memory, which can be a huge plus.  However, complex and distracting music might not be the way to go when choosing the right studying playlist for you.

We have found that the best genres of music to listen to while studying, reading or writing include minimalist, classical, piano and low-fi music. We’ve compiled some of the best lyric-free playlists that will act as brain food while keeping your attention on your studies so you can ace that test and earn that A.

Best Study Playlists on Spotify

This more than 24-hour playlist is full of piano and classical songs to help you focus.

Lofi Girl curates some of the most relaxing and engaging playlists. Her use of lo-fi tracks mixed with ambient pieces will keep you relaxed but never bored.

This playlist is all instrumental all the time!

Best Youtube Study Playlists

This is a deep-focus playlist so you know you’ll finish what you need to get done!

This Bossa Nova & Jazz playlist is a MOOD. It will transport you to a lovely cafe, on a rainy day.

This extra ambient playlist describes itself as “brain power, focus concentration music.” You’ll feel like you’re in a sound bath.

Music is just one way to improve your mental health. See more tips on how to improve your mental health as an online student.

music for when your doing homework

“Top Songs I Listen to When Doing Homework” by Rachel Gray

I don’t know about you, but I end up being the type to need some type of background noise when I work, whether it is my Spotify playing in the background, an old episode of The Office on Netflix (R.I.P. The Office 2021), or some random “MrBeast” video I click on while scrolling through YouTube. Unless I was writing an essay, I’d hate it when teachers would tell the class that we couldn’t listen to music or watch videos while working. One time, in my AP World History class, I attempted to watch Step Brothers while going through the packet, but the teacher was like, “Yeah, no.” I’m still petty to this day. So, I thought I’d take the time and go through the top songs I listen to while studying for my Honors classes, both popular and not so popular.

First up: “Control” by Zoe Wees. This is a really good song that 1) kind of puts you in your feels but 2) has a really good beat. If I’m going through a Math WebAssign, I can sing my heart out and just pour my emotion into the lyrics. But if I’m reading something for Spanish, I can vibe with the beat of the music without worrying too much about what the lyrics are. I think this song overall is definitely a good one to put on your playlist. I give it an 8/10.

Next: “Stop” by Anthony Ramos. Almost everyone has seen Hamilton at this point, or you’ve probably heard enough of the hype that you’ve looked up a couple of songs. Anthony Ramos played John Laurens in the Broadway musical. This song, recently released, is high on my list for a couple of reasons. 1) It reminds me to “stop” and take life in. It isn’t all about school or work. I’ve got to step back and appreciate everything else surrounding me. 2) His voice is amazing. I loved his voice in Hamilton , and once I discovered he had music of his own, it was game over. After all considerations, I think this song is a nice touch when you’re in a good mood, about to finish your work for the day, and it’s time to relax. A solid 9/10.

Honorable mentions: “The Black and White” by The Band Camino, “Stupid Mistakes” by lovelytheband, “Kids” by Ben Rector, and “You Love Me” by flora cash. All of these songs, by genre and artist, really take up 80% of my playlist. Outside of doing homework, I like to just listen to these songs on road trips or during everyday chores. This is definitely my everyday music, and it works great as background noise when you’re trying to focus on your work more than the music. All together, these average a solid 7/10. 

Lastly: “Wildfire” by Nate Smith. Yes, I do listen to country music. I, personally, enjoy it a lot. Today’s country, less so than what played a decade ago, but I think every generation thinks that. I grew up on country music, every Sunday listening to Lon Helton on Country Countdown USA. This song is really catchy to me, and I enjoy listening to it when I’m working on my Honors Computer Science course. I can sing the lyrics and listen along without giving the music too much of my attention as I’m working. It’s like an unconscious thing. Between the catchiness and letting it roll in the background, this too gets a 7/10.

I would bring in a few more, but I don’t think there’s enough time. There’s just so many to choose from. I’m sure you have your favorite songs to listen to when you’re studying. Share them with me on Instagram: @raethefangirl. Also, here’s my Spotify Playlist if you’re interested.
