Playlist with a purpose

Emily Shaulis, staff writer

“I don’t know.” That’s the common answer from CMR students when I ask what their favorite song is.

“That’s a tough one,” is another common answer.

It doesn’t seem like such a tough question, but it is. Of all the songs on your playlist, what is your favorite? Can you pick just one? From Rap to Folk. Pop to Techno. Which one is your No. 1 favorite?

What about your fellow classmates? What is the student body listening to? iPods are a common piece of technology today and the songs on them can capture a person’s personality. I randomly selected 30 students to share their top songs.
