Music to get through the Hump

“How Long Do I Have to Wait For You?” — Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings
“If I Ever Feel Better” — Phoenix
“Slippin'” — Quadron
“You’ve Got the Love” — Florence + The Machine
“My Last (feat. Chris Brown)” — Big Sean
“The Show Goes On” — Lupe Fiasco

I’d say the theme of these songs dithers between “You kick ass” to “Don’t give up [because you are (obtaining your) B.A.*]”
