Your Friendly Campus Music Nerd Presents: The IC Super Summer Funtime Express Playlist 2017

By: Willem Kline

Another year in the books for Illinois College and a single year of my career in the bag. I’ve made it my mission to not only provide the campus with the music update and report that they deserve, but supply them with enough jams to last their entire college career. From a single song of the day to a thought on the industry as a whole, it’s been a hell of a treat being able to write these articles day in and day out for you guys.

Music is a very important thing in my life. In fact, one could probably argue that it is the most important thing in my life. There’s been entire albums that have soundtracked years of my life. Weezer’s Blue has enough memories stored in it that I could probably write you a personal daily column for at least several months. So in honor of a successful year of not dying or losing a considerable amount of my sanity, I present to you a collection of a little over 150 songs that should sufficiently provide you with enough jams to last you into the next semester.

Thank you all so much for everything. You’re making my time here an absolute blast.
