33 Tracks On Your Spotify If You're The Adult Who Never Outgrew Tween Music

33 Tracks On Your Spotify If You're The Adult Who Never Outgrew Tween Music

Yes, Hilary Duff is on here under 3 different names.

So, you're a college student or starting your first job, and you still go to a 2000s Disney playlist every time you're handed the aux cord? Well, here's the playlist that you should play next time.

1. Fly - Hilary Duff (Hilary Duff)

Placed deservedly at the top, just as it is on the album. Nothing hits your early-20s-feels like a deep Hilary Duff track.

2. Bet On It - Troy Bolton (High School Musical 2)

If you don't feel like you could run 17 miles without stopping while this song plays, you are not human. Zac Efron's face superimposed over a fake pond still helps me sleep at night.

3. This Is Me - Mitchie Torres & Shane Gray (Camp Rock)

I just have to say it: Mitchie's song was only okay until Shane came charging down the stage singing "you're the voice I hear inside my head."

4. Say OK - Vanessa Hudgens (V)

If you watched Disney as much as me as a tween, this takes you back to watching the music video in between episodes of "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody."

5. Ashley Tisdale - He Said, She Said (Headstrong)

Everyone made a joke about every single child star becoming a musical artist, but when their music is as fire as Ashley's ENTIRE album, how can you judge?

6. Starstruck - Christopher Wilde (Starstruck)

Ah, the old Disney Channel Original Movie. Horrendous acting, bomb music.

7. Burnin' Up - Jonas Brothers (A Little Bit Longer)

Big Rob's rap part in this song is, to this day, the best feature in musical history. Don't @ me.

8. This Is What Dreams Are Made Of - Lizzie McGuire (The Lizzle McGuire Movie)

Picture this: The biggest stage in Rome. Miss Ungermeyer dancing her feet off (though a student she is supposed to be chaperoning is now, somehow, an international pop-star). A metallic outfit with a rectangular cut out over her belly button. A cinematic masterpiece. (Oh, and Paolo sucks.)

9. Someone's Watching Over Me - Terri Fletcher (Raise Your Voice)

Yes, for those counting, this is the 3rd time Hilary Duff has been on here under 3 different names. You can catch this song on her self-titled album, but nothing beats the dramatic scene where she sings it in the movie.

10. Nobody's Perfect - Hannah Montana (Hannah Montana 2)

20 points to everyone who can also sing "doing the bone dance" to the tune of this song.

11. Push It To The Limit - Corbin Bleu (Jump In)

The high-stakes and intense double dutch qualifier would not have been possible without this amazing music behind it. Honorable mention to Keke Palmer's "It's My Turn Now," which deserves awards.

12. I Fly - Hayden Panettiere (Ice Princess)

"Ice Princess" was everyone's favorite movie about an uptight, dorky mom refusing to let her uptight, dorky daughter pursue ice skating so uptight dorky daughter has to be secretly coached by a disgraced ex-figure skater. Are you hooked? Wait 'til you hear the soundtrack.

13. East Northumberland High - Miley Cyrus (Meet Miley Cyrus)

The Meet Miley Cyrus double-feature was life-changing. While this song is definitely a lesser-known Miley bop, it is still pretty damn good.

14. Strut - Cheetah Girls (The Cheetah Girls 2)

This should be on every bar's playlist because I cannot imagine how lit it would get it the DJ threw this jam on.

15. Ultimate - Lindsay Lohan (Freaky Friday)

After Lindsay's disastrous performance earlier in the movie because her mom was actually inside her body, she really brought positivity back to her name with this one.

16. Miracles Happen - Myra (The Princess Diaries)


17. Metamorphosis - Hilary Duff (Metamorphosis)

One of the best moments in musical history is Hilary just rhyming a bunch of unrelated words that end in "ation" at the end of this song. That is not debatable.

18. Breakin' Free - Troy Bolton & Gabriella Montez (High School Musical)

Raise your hand if at least 3 kids sang this during your elementary school talent show!

19. Play My Music - Connect 3 (Camp Rock)

The Jonas Brothers are here under another name, but Connect 3 really knew how to produce the jams.

20. Never Underestimate A Girl - Vanessa Hudgens (V)

The line "your secretary might end up your boss whether you really like it or not," might have contributed to the reason I'm a feminist.

21. When You Look Me In The Eyes - The Jonas Brothers (Jonas Brothers)

A rare slow-down song on this fire playlist, When You Look Me In The Eyes is a valid first dance at your wedding song whether your future husband wants it or not.

22. Rockstar - Hannah Montana (Hannah Montana)

Tai Chi practicing? Snowboard champion? What CAN'T she do?

23. Drama Queen (That Girl) - Lindsay Lohan (Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen)

This movie is, to this day, one of the weirdest movies I've ever seen, but I'm not going to let that take away from this song's well-deserved glory.

24. Stupid Cupid - Mandy Moore (Princess Diaries)

Mandy Moore was a grade A b*tch in the Princess Diaries, but that did NOT mean she couldn't produce a bop when prompted.

25. Wake Up - Hilary Duff (Most Wanted)

I feel like this is coming very close to becoming a Hilary Duff playlist, so I had to leave out "So Yesterday" and "Come Clean," but they deserve some love.

26. I Want It All - Sharpay & Ryan Evans (High School Musical 3)

The choreography. The costumes. The slow final chorus. This song has it all.

27. Scream - Troy Bolton (High School Musical 3)

Yeah, like I was going to just skip over the best movie of the franchise.

28. Freak The Freak Out - Tori Vega as Louise Nordoff (Victorious)

Not to be dramatic, but Tori ripping off her disguise and showing up her enemies is my dream and I live vicariously through this scene.

29. Potential Breakup Song - Aly & AJ (Insomniac)

The remake of them singing this was amazing, but nothing will ever beat this OG breakup bop.

30. New Classic (P.Y.T) - Selena Gomez & Drew Seely (Another Cinderella Story)

This is one of the greatest songs that ever came out of a Disney movie. It made me feel like I was the one who was paid, young and taking on the world from the driver's seat.

31. Bratitude - The Bratz (The Bratz Movie)

This movie was incredible, this song was incredible, the BRATZ are incredible.

32. Supernova Girl - Zenon (Zenon, Girl of the 21st Century)

I will be jamming to this song well into my '90s, guarantee it.

33. That's Just The Way We Roll - Jonas Brothers (Jonas Brothers)

When people ask you and your friends why you always play JB when you get in the car, just respond with the title of this song.

The 10 Stages Of A 2:30 P.M. Kickoff, As Told By Alabama Students

But we still say Roll MF Tide!


We all have a love-hate relationship with a 2:30 p.m. kickoff at Bryant Denny Stadium, especially when it's 94 degrees.

1. Immediate sadness


What do you mean I have to wake up at 9 a.m. to get ready?

2. Bracing yourself for the worst


It's a marathon not a sprint ladies and gentleman.

3. Accepting the game is going to happen


Rain or shine we are all in that student section screaming our heads off.

4. Trying to wear the least amount clothes possible without being naked on the Quad


Is it me or does it get 10 times more hot the minute you walk on to the quad?

5. Shedding a tear when you walk out your front door once you feel the heat and humidity on your skin


Is it fall yet?

6. Drowning your sorrows inside a Red Solo cup at 11:30 a.m. at a fraternity tailgate


Maybe I'll forget about the humidity if I start frat hopping now.

7. Getting in line to go through security realizing it'll take an hour to actually get inside Bryant Denny


More security is great and all but remember the heat index in Alabama? Yeah, it's not easy being smushed like sardines before even getting into Bryant Denny.

8. Feeling the sweat roll down every part of your body


Oh yeah I am working on my tan and all but what is the point of showering before kick off?

9. Attempting to cheer on the Tide, but being whacked in the head with a shaker by the girl behind you. 


Shakers are tradition, but do we have to spin it around in a full 360 every two seconds? I have a migraine from just thinking about it.

10. Leaving a quarter into the game because Alabama is kicking ass and you're about to have a heat stroke.


I'll watch the rest in air conditioning thank you very much!

We may not love the 2:30 kickoffs but Roll Tide!

I Made Emma Chamberlain's Mediocre Vegan Cookies, And They're Pretty Incredible

Emma and her vegan cookies have made their way into my heart, and are here to stay.


One day, I went down the black hole that is 'YouTube at 3 am' and discovered my favorite social media influencer of all time: Emma Chamberlain. I started binge watching her videos every night for about a week, where I came across her "Cooking With Emma" series. I decided that I wanted to give her vegan antics a go for myself.

I've never cooked or baked anything with the intention of it being vegan, so not only is that new territory for me, but I've never even eaten a vegan cookie. The only reason I'm doing this is because Emma did, and she is aesthetic goals.

To start the journey of vegan baking, I took to Pinterest, just like Emma, and found this recipe to use. Although the video that inspired all of this used a gluten free recipe, I opted for only vegan, because I'm allergic to most of the ingredients that make things gluten-free.

In true Emma style, I used a whisk to combine the wet ingredients together, making sure to use her special technique.

Then, I did the same thing with the dry ingredients.

After that, I dumped everything together and combined all of the ingredients.

Once they were combined, I chopped up a vegan chocolate bar, because Emma and I like chocolate chunk cookies, not chocolate chip, there's a difference.

Now that everything is combined, I made balls of dough and stuck it on a pan, and baked them while I binged more Emma, because what else would I be doing in my spare time?

The recipe said to make the balls a lot smaller, but we aren't perfect, so I made them gigantic. In my head, I thought the worst thing that could happen was it turn into one big cookie, but that's a whole other video you need to watch.

I took them out of the oven, and they were brown on the top, but still a little doughy. At this point I was tired of waiting and eager to eat them, so I disappointingly set them aside to cool, which only lasted a minute or so before I snagged one up to try.

The taste was definitely one I've never associated with cookies, and came to the conclusion that if I decided to go vegan, it would be doable with these cookies and Emma Chamberlain by my side.

Emma inspired me to get out of my comfort zone, which is a reoccurring theme throughout her channel, and I'm happy to be apart of it. She taught me that even if mediocre cookies is all you have, eat them with pride because you made them yourself.
