My Graduation Playlist

Rebecca Preedy | Ancient History and Classical Archaeology with Study in Europe Contact Rebecca

Last year when my friend graduated from her degree, she created a playlist to reflect her thoughts and feelings on the day she finished her time at university. Today I graduate from Warwick with a First Class Honours degree in Ancient History and Classical Archaeology with Study in Europe. I can’t have a real party, so instead here is my virtual graduation party playlist. Congratulations to all of the Warwick Class of 2021- WE DID IT!

  1. Victorious, Panic! At the Disco
  • This one had to top the list. This was the first song I listened to in the car after passing my driving test, and I’m fairly sure it featured heavily on my A-Level results day soundtrack.

2. 1999, Charli XCX and Troye Sivan

  • A shout out to my second-year housemates. I love and miss you all.

3. Warmth, Bastille

  • It is a wild, wild world indeed. My degree literally  saved my life this year, and although it was never going to be easy graduating in a pandemic, Warwick has been one source of stability in a year wrought with chaos.

4. 22, Taylor Swift

  • Dedicated to my final-year housemates. I couldn’t have done it without you.

5. Hey Look Ma I made It, Panic! At the Disco

  • No explanation required.

6. Come on Eileen, Dexy’s Midnight Runners

  • A nod to Pop and Disco Dave.

7. Don’t You (Forget About Me), Simple Minds

  • I’ve met so many wonderful people during my degree. I won’t forget you, so don’t you forget about me.

8. Feeling Good, Nina Simone

  • Ending on a positive feeling. I’m looking forward to my next steps with Warwick, and beyond. It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me… and I’m feeling good.

Bye for now,

Becca.
