Ooooky Spooky Scores for Studying – Issue 8

If you’re anything like me, you can’t study while listening to any music with a melody because your monkey brain will get distracted and start trying to follow along. To combat this, I’ve created the ultimate sp0o0o0oky orchestral soundtrack to write essays, research conspiracy theories, or just generally feel like you’re in a heist movie. 


  1. Summer Overture – Clint Mansell (Requiem For a Dream)

Honestly, I don’t know how I’m going to caption any of these other than ‘wow violins, very nice’.


  1. Dream Is Collapsing – Hans Zimmer (Inception)

Wow, Leo DiCaprio, very nice.


  1. Moonlight Sonata – Beethoven 

Wow, piano, very nice.


  1. The Exorcist Main Theme – Jack Nitzsche
