Every now and then, present day music just doesn't seem to cut it anymore. You long for the groove and authenticity vibrant in the '80s and '90s and miss the classic, yet fantastic hits that the '60s and '70s brought along. Possibly inspired by the "Stranger Things'" throwback to the '80s, without further ado, I present to you some classic songs that will never fade away with time.

1. Time After Time - Cyndi Lauper (1983)

This song is so deep and thoughtful. I heard it first on "Parks and Recreation," actually, when April, Donna, and Ann sing the chorus! It hits you deep and is so fun to sing out loud.

2. Don't You (Forget About Me) - Simple Minds (1985)

I have yet to watch Breakfast Club (I know, what am I even doing with my life?!), but this song is amazing. Admittedly, I hadn't heard it before watching Pitch Perfect, but I've been obsessed ever since.

3. Every Breath You Take - The Police (1983)

I'd actually discovered this gem through a cover I heard by Denmark + Winter. The lyrics are amazing and you can't help but sing along with passion.

4. Take On Me - a-Ha (1985)

Possibly my favorite classic song of all time! The music video is visually stunning and the music itself is perfection.

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

I discovered this song in middle school when I played it in band! It's musically beautiful and lyrically profound.

6. I Want It That Way - Backstreet Boys (1999)

This song is a romantic classic. It's so sweet and I can listen to it on repeat. In fact, I've done that several times...

7. Quit Playing Games - Backstreet Boys (1997)

Another romantic classic. This song never gets old and the beat gets me nodding my head.

8. My Heart Will Go On - Celine Dion (1997)

The beginning flute music is beautiful beyond words. And c'mon, it's Rose and Jack's love theme from the "Titanic." Need I say more?

9. Can't Help Falling In Love - Elvis Presley (1961)

An oldie but a goldie.

10. Imagine - John Lennon (1971)

The lyrics are profound and incredible. It can put a smile or brings tears to anyone listening to it. It'll never fade away.

11. Macarena - Los Del Rio (1993)

Can you believe this song is more than twenty years old?! It's the OG of all dance anthems out there: "Cupid Shuffle," "Cha Cha Slide," "Gangnam Style," "Watch Me Whip" and so on.

12. Another Brick In The Wall - Pink Floyd (1979)

This song has a strong message and is groovy at the same time. It's a masterpiece.

13. Stand By Me - Ben E. King (1962)

It's a sweet and adorable song, and once again I discovered it through a cover by Denmark + Winter.

14. Livin' la Vida Loca - Ricky Martin (1999)

This song is awesome. The beat, background music, and voice are great. First heard it when I danced to it on "Just Dance!" It makes for a great dance song.

15. The Sounds of Silence - Simon & Garfunkel (1964)

The lyrics are absolutely amazing and hard-hitting: "Hello darkness, my old friend. I've come to talk with you again." More songs like this one need to exist.

The list goes on, but I'll leave you with these! Today's music is great in its own sense, but these classics carry a sort of splendor that is oh-so-magical!

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
