7 Reasons You Should Save Space For 'Foster The People' On Your Summer Playlist

Every playlist deserves some great hits, "Foster The People" always delivers.

7 Reasons You Should Save Space For 'Foster The People' On Your Summer Playlist
Hannah Henley

Last week I attended Summerfest in Milwaukee Wisconsin. I had never been before but decided to go when I heard "Foster The People" was playing.

For anyone who has not seen this band in concert, the experience is unbelievable. From lighting to sound, "Foster the People" did not disappoint. Their setlist was full of songs ranging from old to new ones and everyone was singing along. There is no experience quite like listening to live music.

The way the bass vibrates through your chest and makes your ribcage shake, the echo of lyrics from the crowd. It's amazing. "Foster the People" is the perfect addition to your summer playlist.

1. Every song is a bop


Perfect for any occasion, just hit play on any track and your mood will instantly go from 0 to 100.

2. Their energy and love for music is heard in every note


It's hard not to smile while listening

3. The message in the music


Listen, really listen to the words of each song, don't let the words just wash over you.

4. The upbeat tunes flow through the air


Roll down the windows and crank up the stereo

5. They are so much more than "Pumped Up Kicks"


Yes, this one is a classic, but they have so many new songs that are just as great!

6. The mix of sounds in every song


The use of the keyboard and synthesizers in their songs gives them a cool sound that I think is so unique.

7. Their songs will put you in the best mood


My personal favorite song to jam out to is "Houdini". But, all three albums of their albums are full of songs that are sure to turn that frown upside down.

So what are you waiting for? You better run better run and add these guys to your playlist.

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.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
