Introducing GOOD's "Back to School" Study Music Playlist #30DaysofGOOD

by Eric Steuer

September 7, 2012

A few weeks back, we asked you to help us put together a "learning music" soundtrack as part of our 30 Days of GOOD: Back to School challenge. Your song recommendations were outstanding. We compiled our favorites as GOOD's "Back to School" Study Music Playlist. It includes songs about school, tracks that teach, and mellow music to study by. Check out the tracklist, then listen to it via the Spotify playlist we've created and embedded below. (If you don't use Spotify, please help us out by creating a version of this playlist on Rdio, YouTube, Grooveshark, etc., and sharing the link in the comments section of this post.)

Thanks to all the GOOD community members who contributed music suggestions.
