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.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy
Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

4453

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.
