On Campus Walk during a class change, with thousands of students walking and biking and rushing to be on time, it’s hard to ignore the many unique ways that UMW students express themselves. But even as students have such varying styles, they often have one similarity: listening to music. We asked UMW students what they’re listening to so you can hear their current favorite tunes.
“My favorite song at the moment is ‘Halloweentown’ by Dark Divine,” said Sky Shane, a junior creative writing major. “It is the perfect rock song to help me get in a spooky mood for the upcoming holiday.”
“My favorite song right now is called ‘Nonsense’ by Sabrina Carpenter,” said Lauryn Taylor, a junior studio art and communication and digital studies double major. “I love that song because it makes me want to dance every time I hear it and it’s a romantic and goofy song.”
“‘Narrow Way’ by Bob Dylan,” said Eli Keith, a senior creative writing major in the five-year secondary education program. “Came out Sept. 10, 2012, almost exactly 10 years ago, and it’s seven and a half minutes long. It’s one of those songs where if you’re driving or if you’re running it’s a good song to go to. It just feels like you’ve got a lot of momentum and it’s a great rocker. You really get the hang of it pretty quickly and then you can jam along to it.”
“My favorite song at the moment is ‘Carrying Your Love With Me’ by George Strait because this song makes me feel better when I miss my boyfriend and it reminds me that everything is going to be okay,” said Emily Whitt, a senior accounting major.
“‘Calm Before the Storm’ by Fall Out Boy,” said Olivia Breda, a senior studio art major. “Fall Out Boy was the first band I really liked, and that song is really fun to sing in the car.”
“‘Betty’ by Yung Gravy,” said Emma Bower, a senior English and studio art double major. “It’s really fun to blast absolutely anywhere. The Rick Astley beat is funky and energizing, and so is Yung Gravy.”
