Archie Powell & The Exports “Only So Much You Can Do”

I discovered this song on the NPR Music SXSW 100, and it’s my new thesis writing anthem.

So you say you’re on to something
and you’d like to see it through
but you’re worked to the bone
and there’s only so much you can do
and if you think it’s all for nothing
if you get no phd and no position
cur there’s only so much you can do

Am I aware of the irony of reimagining a song like this as a soundtrack to my academic life? Yes.
Does reimagining this song as soundtrack make writing my master thesis more enjoyable? Also yes.
