    Top 5

    ? Hard To Handle by The Black Crowes

    In times of complete exasperation and comatose state, you need something to shock you back into life. It’s hard enough to keep you from dozing and quirky enough to make you want to smile again, and God forbid, maybe do a little foot tap or head bob. ðð-Kim Kotel

    ? What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong

    This song has the ability to put everything into perspective. Try walking around campus to it, and you will forget you even have classes to worry about.

    This epic Beatles ballad gives great advice for dealing with stress – just forget about it. When you let things fall as they may good things can result.
