School is back in swing, and with that students look for ways to help them get through the months of endless papers, tests and reading. Music helps students make it through all aspects of life. There are songs that get people through a hard day, songs that get athletes pumped up for a big game and songs to dance to on the weekend. We wanted to know what you are listening to, so we asked students what their top song of the moment was and why they like it.
“‘Ho Hey’ by The Lumineers because it’s really fun to listen to. It’s a cute song.” —Sabrina Bradshaw, freshman, pre-communications, Salt Lake City “‘Wanted’ by Hunter Hayes.
