Revisiting the 60s, 70s, and 80s music scene

An Old Soul's Playlist

There are no sounds quite comparable to the tunes that filled American radios through what some may consider the greatest eras of music. Artists including Elvis, the Beatles and the Beach Boys struck the hearts of innumerable fans throughout the 1960s. In the 1970s, bands such as Meat Loaf and the Jackson 5 infused music lovers with legendary songs we continue jamming to present-day. And of course, we must acclaim one of the most renowned music eras. The 1980s brought us singers like Cyndi Lauper, Billy Joel and the Police, not to mention a plethora of tracks still popular today.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it!

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.
