Best Jam Out Songs From Before 1999

"The music of the '70s and '80s is fun music and we wanted to party." — Marco Balich

Best Jam Out Songs From Before 1999
Emma Clune

After a lifetime of being forced to listen to '80s music in the backseat of my dad's car, and having a friend whose mom's music taste was (and is) leagues better than my own, I learned to love everything from U2 to Fleetwood Mac. Here, I compiled a list of my favorite songs to jam out to that were released pre-1999, along with some of my favorite lines.

1. Friday I'm In Love - The Cure

"Dressed up to the eyes / It's a wonderful surprise / To see your shoes and your spirits rise / Throwing out your frown / And just smiling at the sound"

2. Rhiannon - Fleetwood Mac

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

"All your life you've never seen a woman taken by the wind / Would you stay if she promised to you heaven? / Will you ever win?"

3. Black Coffee In Bed - Squeeze

"Now she's gone / And I'm back on the beat / A stain on my notebook / Says nothing to me / Now she's gone / And I'm out with a friend / With lips full of passion / And coffee in bed"

5. Wannabe - The Spice Girls

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

"If you want my future, forget my past / If you wanna get with me, better make it fast / Now don't go wasting my precious time / Get your act together we could be just fine"

6. Come on Eileen - Dexy's Midnight Runners

"These people 'round here, wear beaten down eyes / Sunk in smoke dried faces, so resigned to what their fate is / But not us, no not us, we are far too young and clever"

6. Linger - The Cranberries

"If you, if you could get by, trying not to lie, / Things wouldn't be so confused and I wouldn't feel so used, / But you always really knew, I just wanna be with you."

7. I Want You Back - Jackson 5

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

"Trying to live without your love is one long sleepless night / Let me show you, girl, that I know wrong from right / Every street you walk on, I leave tear stains on the ground / Following the girl I didn't even want around"

8. Beautiful Day - U2

"You're on the road / But you've got no destination / You're in the mud / In the maze of her imagination"

9. Tainted Love - Soft Cell

"Get away, you don't really want any more from me / To make things right / You need someone to hold you tight / And you think love is to pray / But I'm sorry, I don't pray that way"

10. Dazed and Confused - Led Zeppelin

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

"Ev'ry day I work so hard bringin' home my hard-earned pay. / Try to love you baby, but you push me away. / Don't know where you're goin', I don't know just where you've been; / Sweet little baby, I want you again."

11. Vienna - Billy Joe

"You got your passion, you got your pride / But don't you know that only fools are satisfied? / Dream on, but don't imagine they'll all come true/ When will you realize... Vienna waits for you?"

12. Jessie's Girl - Rick Springfield

"And I'm lookin' in the mirror all the time / Wonderin' what she don't see in me / I've been funny; I've been cool with the lines / Ain't that the way love's supposed to be?"

13. Island in the Sun - Weezer

"On an island in the sun / We'll be playing and having fun/ And it makes me feel so fine / I can't control my brain / We'll run away together / We'll spend some time forever / We'll never feel bad anymore."

14. You Make My Dreams - Hall and Oates

"Twist and shout my way out / And wrap yourself around me / 'Cause I ain't the way you found me / And I'll never be the same, oh yeah"

15. Let's Get It On - Marvin Gaye

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

"We're all sensitive people / With so much to give, understand me sugar / Since we got to be here / Let's live, I love you"

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
