If your middle school years were anything like mine, a typical weekend night consisted of pizza, prank calls, and Dance Dance Revolution pads. Playing mostly on DDR Extreme 2, a majority of songs in this mix will come from that game, although there will be some outliers. With that being said, will I learn that your childhood was as filled with House, Eurobeat, and Hardstyle music as mine? I sure hope so.

1. Speed Over Beethoven by ROSE


Starting off strong with the song that banged that absolute MOST on DDR: Speed Over Beethoven. Now that's what I call classical music.

2. Everytime We Touch by Cascada

Every single prepubescent and their moody older sibling screamed every word of this song. Thank you Cascada, even if your hit is just a cover.

3. Heaven by DJ Sammy


Yes, you know this song, vaguely, but surely. It hit #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2002. Make sure to watch it in that good 144p resolution.

4. Butterfly by Smile.dk


Did you know the original version of this song is one of the oldest music videos on YouTube, being uploaded in 2005? Talk about a digital relic. Cringy lyrics aside, the remix used in DDR allows for no breathers. Grab my heart, indeed, DDR announcer.

5. Boom Boom Dollar (K.O.G G3 Mix) by King Kong & D.Jungle Girls


One of my favorites to dance on light mode, Boom Boom Dollar oozes that early 2000s Eurobeat. Soak it in.

6. La Copa De La Vida by Patrick Victorio (Original by Ricky Martin)

Despacito who? Oh Ricky Martin, my first exposure to Latin pop, you kill me. This remix by Patrick Victorio from Dance Dance Revolution Extreme always made me not follow the pads because I just could not contain myself.

7. Running in the 90s by Maurizio De Jorio

So this may have been from Stepmania and not DDR, but this song, which is now included in many a meme, contains the same amount of Eurobeat energy any song from any DDR installment has. The rush of adrenaline that boils within you in this song is too much for my mortal body. I'M JUST RUNNIN' IN THE 90S COME ON BABY RUN TO ME.

8. All Around the World (La La La) by ATC

You very much know this song if you ever watched Vine videos. Thanks to Viner TheJasiminator and her dancing, All Around the World reemerges from the depths of 2000, although it continues to be a popular song to sample.

9. Get Busy by Sean Paul


From DDR Extreme 2, Get Busy by Sean Paul was a lost gem I had only recently uncovered. Man, remember Sean Paul? Where did he go? I hope he is doing well because he released JAMS. Temperature by him or Break it off featuring Rihanna, anyone?

10. Captain Jack (Grandale Remix) by Captain Jack


Another one from DDR Extreme 2 and its predecessor, this also pleased my middle school self. This song is song. This song is so difficult to dance to. You can only imagine how well my athletically inept self did (not well).

11. Barbie Young (Speedy Mix) by Cartoon Heroes


Last but certainly not least comes from the most Nightcore-ish song from the list by Cartoon Heroes. Bursting with energy , this oldie but a goodie from 2003 also proved its difficulty, even on beginner. Either that or I am just horrendous at Dance Dance Revolution.

So, how many of these songs made you go "Oh yeah, I remember hearing this song!" Hopefully at least one of these rung a pounding, electronic, bell.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

5 Things That 'Shameless' Got Wrong About Bipolar Disorder

There is so much more than Ian and Monica lead viewers to believe.

"Shameless" is a hit television series that airs across the world, for my own personal viewing on Netflix. While the show is a major hit, people aren't talking about the issues in the portrayal in the "mental health" category. Ian and Monica are both pretty important characters with bipolar disorder (BD). There are, however, five major flaws with what their bipolar looks like.

I don't want to point fingers or call anyone out, but it seems as though since the school year came to a close and summer officially started, more and more people began to care less and less about coronavirus (COVID-19).

I understand that eventually you have to get on with your life and cannot live in isolation forever, but people are still dying, cases are still increasing, and COVID is clearly not going anywhere for the time being.

Dear Grandma,

I wish my words could adequately explain how much I miss seeing your smile and hearing your laugh. You were such a bright ray of sunshine in my life and now that you're gone, I can't help but remember all the times we had together.
