With one exam after the other and endless hours of studying, stress basically seems inevitable. No matter how much you have going on, you deserve a little break every once in awhile to just relax and de-stress. Many people find that unwinding with some feel good songs is an effective way to relieve their stress. It's great to sing along with in the shower, it's the perfect soundtrack to your wal [...]
Does listening to music help you study? Sticking in some headphones and drowning out the world is the easiest way for some of us to focus on our work. With our headphones in, we no longer get distracted by the chattering going on in the corner of the library or the loud cars and honking going on in the busy streets outside your window. It's tricky, though, because there's also that chance that wh [...]
Who doesn’t love a good summer concert?
It’s always at the top of our list of things to do once summertime rolls around. However, we don’t always love the price tag that goes along with dancing and singing to our favorite bands. Although we fully support the occasional (and some might say, necessary) splurge, we’re here to bring you a few alternatives that won’t break the bank.
We at Barnes & Noble College are happy to have partnered with Rhapsody to get college students back in the school groove—without breaking the bank. Students can get all the music they want, online and on mobile, for as little as $4 per month for the Freshman offer, available only on college campuses.
College students can pick up a one, two, three or four year Rhapsody membership for up to [...]

During the past few years, Christina went through tough times with her very public divorce and the media critiquing her personal life and physical appearance. However, Christina has moved on and recently told Access Hollywood that she is in a good place. Her new album is co [...]
The summer season is always filled with tons of new music. However, this fall is shaping up to be a whirlwind of new melodies and fresh lyrics. What's even better is that the next few months are not just brimming with new songs, but with album releases. Whether you like the folksy crooning of Mumford & Sons or the whiplash-inducing lyrics of Kanye West, your musical appetite will definitely be [...]
Five of Great Britain's favorite ladies definitely spiced up the Closing Ceremonies this past Sunday. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE the Spice Girls! My sister and I used to watch their movie, Spice World, all the time when we were younger. The girls - Sporty, Scary, Baby, Ginger, and Posh - reunited once again at the London Summer Olympics 2012! Their performance reminded us why we love the [...]
Billboard picked their top 30 “Summer” songs of all time this week. While some of the songs on there are not what I would have picked, most of them are on point. There’s a great mix of artists, from Justin Timberlake and Katy Perry all the way to Nat King Cole and The Beach Boys.
All of these songs were on the top Billboard Hot 100 chart for weeks as number 1. Katy Perry t [...]
The young teen sensation from the X-Factor, Rachel Crow, has come out with her brand new single, “Mean Girls.” As the title suggests, the song encompasses a strong message about bullying and I think it’s great that Rachel is raising awareness about this serious topic. The powerful message is only complemented by Rachel’s powerful voice and strong story-telling lyrics.
