8 One Direction Songs That Are Still Jams

8 One Direction Songs That Are Still Jams

The boyband may have gone their separate ways, but the 1D sound is still sticking around for years to come!

The average person should listen to at least 3 One Direction songs per day in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I totally just made up that statistic, but it's probably true. Nearly two years after the announcement of the band's hiatus, and two-and-a-half years post-Zayn Malik's departure from the group, people are still bopping One Direction on the daily. And let me tell, you, pretty much every One Direction song is still a total jam. Here are eight songs that you should still be listening to in 2017.

1. Kiss You

Truly an OG. I remember sitting at my computer surrounded by all my friends as we frantically refreshed the page waiting for the music video above to go live on YouTube. Pretty sure we all cried while we were watching it.

2. Steal My Girl

The other day my mom admitted to me that she ran four miles listening to this song and this song only. So.

3. No Control

You may remember 1D on Carpool Karaoke with James Corden, during which he insisted that the five of them adorn matching denim jackets and make a "music video" for this song in his car. Good times.

4. Where Do Broken Hearts Go?

Third in a row on this list off the band's creatively titled fourth album, "Four," meaning if you want the real 1D experience you should be listening to this album all the way through to hear all the hits.

5. Diana

We cannot possibly forget "Midnight Memories," the album that bridged the gap from bubble-gum pop songs into something a little more rock-influenced. "Diana" is one of the best songs off this album, no questions asked!

6. Wolves

"Made In The A.M." may have been missing Zayn, but it wasn't missing the catchy hits that we know and love from this band. "Wolves" is a perfect song to sum up that sound!

7. Hey Angel

I always thought this sounded like the intro to a late '90s/early 2000s rom-com. It still does. And that means that it will fit perfectly into your summer throwback jams playlist!

8. What Makes You Beautiful


The bottom line is that, even many years later, One Direction should still be making their way onto your summer playlists. Like, forever.

The End Of The Semester As Told By Todd Chrisley

Because we're all a little dramatic like Todd sometimes.

The last 3-4 weeks of every college student’s semester are always crazy hectic. We have last minute assignments, group projects, and exams all squeezed into the last few weeks before break.

Sometimes we all need a little humor, and sometimes we are all a little dramatic, so why not experience the last few weeks of the semester as told by the king of drama himself, Todd Chrisley of Chrisley Knows Best.

1. Sitting in class listening to your professor explain upcoming assignments/exams.

2. When your group project members refuse to do anything until the night before it's due or just show up the day of to present.

3. When you and your roommate try to cook with whatever few ingredients you have left in stock.

Because we definitely want to avoid going to the grocery store at the end of the semester if we can.

4. When your parents get tired of you calling them about every little inconvenience in your life.

5. Sitting down to work on assignments.

6. Your thoughts when the professor is telling you what they want from you out of an assignment.

7. When you've had about 30 mental breakdowns in 2 days.

8. Trying to search out the class for the right group members.

9. The last few days of classes where everyone and everything is getting on your nerves.

10. When your friend suggests going out but you're just done with the world.

11. This. On the daily.

12. When all you want to do is snuggle up and watch Christmas movies.

13. Studying and realizing you know nothing.

14. When your finals are over and it's finally time to go home for break.

You're finally back to your old self.

Poetry On Odyssey: Hustle and Bustle This Holiday Season

"...Have conversation, turn off the cable..."


It's Holiday season,

Time to be freezin'.

Thanksgiving will be here before we know it,

Don't stop now, you can't quit.

Numerous trips to grocery stores,

Pure mayhem when you walk through those doors.

Shelves bare,

You're ready to pull out your hair.

Long check-out lines,

Or delayed airlines.

Prepare and cook the turkey low and slow,

Wait for that golden brown skin to glow.

Place the gravy and cranberry sauce on the table,

Have conversation, turn off the cable.

Before you know it, Christmas is here,

The classic songs are music to our ears.

Yet we all dread the trips to the mall,

To find the perfect gifts, big or small.

The Christmas Tree Lighting floods TV stations,

With singers from all generations,

The scent of candy canes fill the air,

We wish the day runs smoothly, Lord, hear our prayer.

Lots of wrappers and bows cover the floor,

As we obsess over our presents more and more.

New Year's creeps up on us,

Throwing a party is always a plus.

Streamers, noisemakers, food,

Who knew planning the perfect party was of this magnitude.

The line at the liquor store gets longer and longer,

Because of the stress in picking a champagne or sparkling cider.

Deciding to prepare finger foods or a five-course meal,

Why not get take-out? DEAL!

Clock counts down from ten.

As the clock strikes one, we've made it to another year, AMEN!

Glasses clinking,

People drinking,

"Happy New Year,"

We cheer.
