When I was in 6th grade, I remember bringing out my iPod Touch on the bus ride home from school and digging around for earbuds buried in the small pocket of my backpack. I would listen to the same songs on repeat every day after school, and it almost became a ritual by the end of the year. It was such a simpler time back then, with nothing to worry about and a whole fifteen minutes to put my knees up against the bus seat, look out the window, and listen to some bops before I got home.
After putting this list together I've been jamming out to these songs all day. I hope this list can remind you of your middle school days and bring you some joy in these hard times of crazy 2020.
