15 Of The Best Throwback Jams To Blast With Your BFFs

Add some of these iconic throwbacks to your playlist for singing in the car!


One of the best parts about coming back home from college is being able to drive again. If you are from a small town like I am, you know that the only thing to do is drive around blasting music with your best friends. Honestly... what's wrong with that? If you don't have some of these songs in your lineup, try adding them!

1. "Drops of Jupiter" by Train

A classic. Make sure you start strong with this one.

2.  "Since U Been Gone" by Kelly Clarkson

A fan favorite, everyone knows this one!

3. "Sk8er Boi" by Avril Lavigne

Or literally any song by her...

4. "Leavin'" by Jesse McCartney

The younger you is WAITING to sing this one.

5. "1985" by Bowling for Soup

Another absolute classic, kick anyone who groans at this one out of the car.

6. "Hey There Delilah" by Plain White T's

Not a scream-type but still deserves to be on that playlist!

7. "I Want It That Way" by The Backstreet Boys

HUGE BOY BAND FAN. Any song by them works!

 8. "Mr. Brightside" by The Killers

An absolute must, everyone knows this one.

9. "Are You Gonna Be My Girl" by Jet

BEFORE YOU SCROLL PAST THIS ONE... listen to it! It will make you want to dance!

10. "I'm Already There" by Lonestar

A tear-jerker... you know we had to add some of those.

11. "Where is the Love?" by Black Eyed Peas

This is one that'll make you sing AND dance.

12. "Take a Bow" by Rihanna

A lot of songs by Rihanna work, but I had to choose just one.

13. "Kiss Kiss" by Chris Brown

Say what you want but old Chris Brown BOPS.

14. "Bad Day" by Daniel Powter

Oldie but wow... what a goodie!

15. "Gives You Hell" by The All-American Rejects

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
