I'm just going to say it: generally, music has gone downhill. The music of the 80s is inarguably the best ever produced. Unfortunately, I was not around for this era of greatness. But lucky for me, my parents had played these songs throughout most of my childhood. Although there are so many more I could have chosen, here is a list of my favorite 80's songs (in no particular order).

1. You May Be Right - Billy Joel (1980)

2. Jump - Van Halen (1984)

3. Hungry Like the Wolf - Duran Duran (1982)

4. Tainted Love - Soft Cell (1981)

5. Beat It - Michael Jackson (1982)

6. Hit Me With Your Best Shot - Pat Benatar (1980)

7. Billie Jean - Michael Jackson (1982)

8. Believe It Or Not (Theme from "Greatest American Hero) - Joey Scarbury (1981)

9. Don't Stop Believin' - Journey (1981)

10. Jessie's Girl - Rick Springfield (1981)

11. You Shook Me All Night Long - AC/DC (1980)

12. Heartbreaker - Pat Benatar (1979)

Ok it is was released in '79, but it's close enough.

13. Livin' On a Prayer - Bon Jovi (1986)

14. Time After Time - Cyndi Lauper (1983)

15. Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go - Wham! (1984)

16. 8675309/Jenny - Tommy Tutone (1981)

17. White Wedding - Billy Idol (1982)

18. Mickey - Toni Basil (1981)

19. Super Freak - Rick James (1981)

20. Kids In America - Kim Wilde (1981)

Saying that I'm a Luke Combs-lover would be an understatement. I've seen him in concert almost more times to count on two hands, I've met him, I have his autograph... I'm a little obsessed. Knowing every lyric to every song of his is definitely a talent. He is an incredible artist and has gotten me through every tough time I've ever been through.

1. "One Number Away"

If you have an ex who you really just want to pick up the phone and call sometimes, then this song is definitely for you. It has such a strong meaning explaining that if you're just lonely and missing someone that you probably shouldn't, they're only one number away..

2. "When It Rains It Pours"

Having a bunch of bad crap happen all at once is awful, but then again, it sometimes works out for the best. If you've ever had a bad day or week where it just seems that one bad thing is happening after another, then this is definitely a jam for you.

3. "This Ones For You"

If you have that certain person or group of people that really have always been there for you and helped shape you into the person that you are today and you really feel like you owe them something, this is the perfect song that will really put into words how you're feeling!

4. "Be Careful What You Wish For"

Sometimes we take what we have for granted, and we don't realize what we have or how good we have it until its gone. Most could say they've been in this situation once or twice or at least know someone that has. If so, I highly recommend listening to this gem by Luke!

5. "Must've Never Met You"

We have all had that one person in our lives that we have ended things with and we have all of these people trying to be positive saying, "Oh, it gets better," or "The grass is greener on the other side." Sometimes that can be hard for us to believe. This is definitely a super meaningful song especially if you've ever been in a situation like that.

6. "She Got The Best Of Me"

If you have ever been with someone who truly has got the best of you, and when it's over you kinda just feel like there's nothing left of you, then you DEFINITELY need to hear this song!

There are so many more Luke Combs songs that have such deep meanings and backgrounds that could fit the perfect situation for you. Luke really is such a great artist with the best intentions for his fanbase, The Bootleggers. Go check him out, I promise you won't regret it!

12 Things You Do As A Child That Stop Being Normal When You Grow Up

4. Consuming copious amounts of mac and cheese.

Growing up is hard enough, but adding the fact that 99% of what we do while growing up no longer being okay just makes it that much harder. Here are 12 things I wish adults were given a little extra leeway on, just like kids.

1. Walking up to strangers, and asking them to be your friend.

Giphy

Hi, this is my best friend Sally. We met 5 minutes ago.

2. Wearing whatever you like, no matter the "fashion rules."

Giphy

It's called fashun. Look it up.

3. Wanting ice cream for dinner, but, like, not having it...Cause you can do that as an adult. No one is stopping you.

Giphy

I wanna get chocolate wasted.

4. Consuming copious amounts of mac and cheese.

Giphy

Let's get real...

5. Watching cartoons, or even any "kid" show... Nobody's perfect, ya know.

Giphy

I'll gladly enjoy my midnight Rugrats, thank you.

6. Not talking in certain situations.

Giphy

Kids can always get away with being shy, or just not talkative, but when an adult doesn't know what to say, or even just doesn't want to talk- we need to "grow up" and get over it? When did forcing others to act a certain way become the norm? Why do we not teach a child to speak up, but rather condemn adults for not talking?

7. Sleeping with stuffed animals, baby blankets, the like.

Even Khloe Kardashian admits to loving her leopard print blankie, that she's had since she was young.

8. Being creative in any means we see fit.

Giphy

Abstract macaroni art? Beautiful. Beaded necklace with no recognizable pattern? Amazing. Playdough statue in the shape of a... blob? gorgeous! Kids can be creative with any medium and create whatever they want with praise, but when adults are abstract and make you think with their art then they are "weird"??

9. Naps.

Giphy

Sure, college KIDS get naps when we can, but once we are out of college and into that thing you all call the "real world"... naps will be no more. We will be expected to get up, go to work, come home, cook, clean, etc... and without ANY naps! Crazy...

10. Genuinely not knowing something.

Giphy

As an adult, if you don't know a "common" fact, celebrity, tv show, song... the list goes on, then you're regarded as less intelligent, cultured, etc. Instead of teaching others when they don't know, we often make them feel less than, and honestly, that just isn't okay.

11. Having wild dreams.

Giphy

Sure, adults talk about dreams they'd love to pursue, but how often are those adults being serious? How many have an actual plan? While children don't always know all of the specifics and often change their minds on their wildest dreams, kids easily talk about huge goals like they're nothing. I wish adults could discuss moving across the world or becoming a world-famous chef like it was a piece of cake.

12. Live relatively stress free.

Giphy

Some kids don't get this luxury, but most adults are judged if they don't stress about things. If you don't worry about bills, the future, your job... anything, really. You're weird if you don't get stressed out by life. Kids aren't forced to feel the societal pressure to be worried about everything, and that helps drive their creativity, imagination, and happiness. We should bring more of that energy into adulthood.
