forever associate with studying for the CFA level 2 in Winter/Spring of 2008. Mine are two songs discovered through the Pandora website (thank you AF’ers for telling me about it) - Budapest Eskimos by The Lushlife Project, and Oscar by Tosca both of which I listened to on endless repeat while studying Quant, FSA and duh I forget.
I listened to “Dad Day” quite a few times right after the exam. During the preparation phrase, we weren’t in the mood for any song.
Gonna Fly Now - from the motion picture Rocky.
opporotunity comes once in a lifetime - Eminem
The Right Stuff - New Kids on the Block
Anything from Flogging Molly.
On my iPod on exam day this year: Gonna Fly Now Eye of the Tiger Lose Yourself (Eminem) Chariots of Fire (Vangelis) No Regrets (New Order) The chase theme from the The Bourne Identity Crockets Theme I was totally fucking pumped when I got to ExCel…

As it was I had “paper tiger” by beck circling round my head, which is probably the polar opposite to that - with lyrics like: No more ashes-to-ashes No more cinders from the sky Let all the laws of creation Tell a dead man how to die Cheery.
Frightened Rabbit and The National
If I had a hammer.
For some reason I couldn’t get “stop and stare” from onerepublic outta my head on exam day. I don’t really listen to music whole studying, but if I have to listen to a song to get me to feel confident in my abilities it would be “Princes of the Universe” by Queen. What’s the url for the Pandora website?
Usher - Make Love In This Club
Metallica - Fuel Iron Maiden - Somewhere in Time

i listened to the new DCFC album… which made going to their show on June 9th less enjoyable as every song the played brought me back to where i was and what i was studying, which brought me back to going through each question on the exam again
