25 Songs That Were On Your iPod In Middle School

You ever want to travel back in time to the good ol' days when it was all so simple...? Well, I don't know about you, but I sure would love to go back to middle school: the time of my life when - I personally feel - I was at my prime... or at least the first of my prime-times so to speak.

If you ever wanted to take a trip down memory lane (via your ears), then look no further, for I have the perfect nostalgia fix for you – 25 songs that you had very likely had on your iPod back in middle school, or at least heard on the radio at some point in your life! What better way to experience those bittersweet feelings of your early adolescence (and even your childhood) than with these feel-good, angsty, and more or less decade-defining songs??

The only rules of this list are as follows: all songs are alphabetized by title, one song per artist or group, and no more than two songs per letter section, so I had to really narrow it all down…

Note: While most of these have come from my own iPod Touch playlist at that time, and a few on this list happened to not be on my playlist then, these are just a small sampling of a whole plethora of music from mainly the 2000s and early 2010s, so if you like what you see and hear here and want so much more, I encourage you to dig up the dusty records in the back of your mind – if you know what I mean…

"All Star" by Smash Mouth

Giphy

"Hey now, you're an all-star

Get your game on, go play

Hey now, you're a Rockstar

Get the show on, get paid"

Got me ten feet off the ground

"Breakeven (Falling To Pieces)" by The Script

Giphy

"Confusion that never stops

The closing walls and the ticking clocks gonna

Come back and take you home

I could not stop, that you now know, singing…"

And she shines just like a star

And I swear I know her face

I just don't know who you are"

"Dance, Dance" by Fall Out Boy

We're falling apart to half-time

Dance, dance

And these are the lives you want to lead

"Disturbia" by Rihanna

"Your mind is in disturbia,

It's like the darkness is the light

Disturbia, disturbia"

"Fifteen" by Taylor Swift

Giphy

"'Cause when you're fifteen

When somebody tells you they love you

You're gonna believe them

And when you're fifteen

Feeling like there's nothing to figure out

Count to ten

Take it in

This is life before you know who you're gonna be

At fifteen"

"Grenade" by Bruno Mars

Giphy

"What you don't understand is I'd catch a grenade for ya

Throw my hand on a blade for ya

I'd jump in front of a train for ya

You know I'd do anything for ya"

"Hey Ya!" by Outkast

Giphy

"Don't try to fight the feeling

Because the thought alone is killin' me right now

Thank God for Mom and Dad

For sticking to together

Like we don't know how"

"Hot N Cold" by Katy Perry

Giphy

"'Cause you're hot and you're cold

You're yes and you're no

You're in and you're out

You're up and you're down

You're wrong when it's right

It's black and it's white

We fight, we break up

We kiss, we make up"

"I Gotta Feeling" by The Black Eyed Peas

"Let's paint the town
We'll shut it down
Let's burn the roof
And then we'll do it again"

But in the end, it doesn't even matter

I had to fall to lose it all

But in the end, it doesn't even matter"

Giphy

"Half psychotic, sick, hypnotic

Got my blueprint, it's symphonic

Half psychotic, sick, hypnotic

Got my blueprint electronic"

"Misery Business" by Paramore

Giphy

"I'm in the business of misery, let's take it from the top

She's got a body like an hourglass, that's ticking like a clock

It's a matter of time before we all run out

When I thought he was mine, she caught him by the mouth"

"My Life Would Suck Without You" by Kelly Clarkson

"Being with you is so dysfunctional

I really shouldn't miss you

But I can't let you go"

"Step up fast and be the first girl to make me throw this cash

We get money, don't be mad, now stop –

Hatin' is bad"

"Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)" by Beyonce

Giphy

"'Cause if you like it, then you shoulda put a ring on it

If you like it, then you shoulda put a ring on it

Don't be mad once you see that he want it

If you like it, then you shoulda put a ring on it"

"Sk8er Boi" by Avril Lavigne

Giphy

"He was a skater boy

She said, 'See you later, boy'

He wasn't good enough for her

Now he's a super star

Slammin' on his guitar

Does your pretty face see what he's worth?"

"Tik Tok" by Ke$ha

Giphy

"DJ, you build me up

You break me down

My heart, it pounds

Yeah, you got me

With my hands up

Put your hands up

Put your hands up...


Now, the party don't start 'til I walk in"

"Wake Me Up When September Ends" by Green Day

Giphy

"Here comes the rain again

Falling from the stars

Drenched in my pain again

Becoming who we are

As my memory rests

But never forgets what I lost

Wake me up when September ends"

"Yeah!" by Usher feat. Lil' Jon & Ludacris

"'Cause I don't know, if I take that chance

Just where's it gonna lead

But what I do know is the way she dance

Make shorty alright with me

The way she get low

I'm like, yeah, just work that out for me

She asks for one more dance, and I'm like, yeah

How the hell am I supposed to leave"

"3" by Britney Spears

"Three is a charm

Two is not the same

I don't see the harm

So are you game?

Let's make a team

Make 'em say my name

Lovin' the extreme

Now are you game?"

"1985" by Bowling For Soup

"Bruce Springsteen, Madonna

Way before Nirvana

There was U2 and Blondie

And music still on MTV

Her two kids in high school

They tell her that she's uncool

'Cause she's still preoccupied

With 19, 19, 1985"

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

2948
J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

11423

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
