Joe Hisaishi – One Summer’s Day
As part of the soundtrack of the movie Spirited Away, this classical piece invokes a sense of calmness and serenity. Joe Hisaishi’s playing is flawless and his music brings you to another dimension. One Summer’s Day is an instrumental piece, so its lack of lyrics is perfect for a study session.

Chances are you probably heard Birdy’s cover of this song. Bon Iver’s gentle voice accompanied with lively strumming of the guitar (albeit a little deceptive since it masks the melancholic lyrics so well) will have a calming effect on one’s mind.
Simon and Garfunkel – Scarborough Fair
Arthur Garfunkel and Paul Simon’s lyrics are repetitive and rhyming, but one does not get tired of listening to them. Their voices are accompanied by the simple strumming a single guitar. Immerse yourself in this piece and allow it to remove all traces of anxiety and stress from your mind.

This a calming Korean song with a nice tune. The gentle strumming the guitar complements the singer’s voice perfectly and draws you in. It is easy to forget your troubles when listening to this song.
