Top 5 Goal Songs in the NHL

Top 5 Goal Songs in the NHL

The only thing better than your team scoring is when they score and then you get to hear a killer song.


1. Nashville Predators: "I Like It I Love It" by Tim McGraw

Here it is folks, the best goal song in the NHL. Everything about this is perfect to me. Tim McGraw is country music royalty, Nashville is country music's home. Having Tim McGraw personalize one of his songs for the Predators is probably the coolest thing this team could do, in terms of song choice. While it may not be the most upbeat or typical songs, it is the most special, which is what makes it number one on my list.

"I like it, I love it, I want some more of it. I try so hard, I can't rise above it. Don't know what it is 'bout the Predators scoring … but I like it, I love it, I want some more of it."

I want some more of it too, Tim McGraw.

Chicago Blackhawks: "Chelsea Dagger" by The Fratellis

A few years ago this would have been my number one goal song in the NHL, but due to my dislike for the Blackhawks they are knocked a few spots back. But this video goes to show just how hard this goal song goes. I am hyped up after hearing this song, which is exactly what a goal song should do for a team and their fan base. Chelsea Dagger is an excellent song and it makes for a great anthem for the Blackhawks and their fans.

Vegas Golden Knights: "Vegas Lights" by Panic! At the Disco

The Vegas Golden Knights picked the BEST goal song possible for their team. Panic! At the Disco are Vegas natives and make upbeat, fun, and young sounding music. This team is fun and young, making a Panic! At the Disco song perfect for them. After listening to this song I am pumped up, which is a perfect feeling for after scoring a goal.

"The Vegas lights

The lies and affectations


We're winning 'til the curtain's coming down

Ain't it so, ain't it so perfect"

It is perfect, Panic! At the Disco, thank you.

Nashville Predators: "Gold on the Ceiling" by The Black Keys

Nashville has two goal songs. This is the second song that plays after they score and it is pretty good. The Predators wear "Nashville" gold colored jerseys, making the title fit to characteristics about the team. Plus I just like this song in general so it makes the list for me.

Florida Panthers: "Sweetness" by Jimmy Eat World

This might not make the most sense as a goal song, but this is a really good song overall and was included in the NHL 2003 video game. Jimmy Eats World is one of the greatest bands, making this one of the greatest goal songs. Plus it is more original than most teams' songs.

While some teams are starting to adopt a baseball like approach to goal songs by letting players pick a special song for when they score, I think it is fun to look at some songs that a special to specific teams as a whole.

11 Things Psychology Majors Hear That Drive Them Crazy

No pun intended.

We've all been there. You're talking to a new acquaintance, or a friend of your parents, or whoever. And then, you get the dreaded question.

"So what are you studying in school?"

Cue the instant regret of picking Psychology as your major, solely for the fact that you are 99.9% likely to receive one of the slightly comical, slightly cliche, slightly annoying phrases listed below. Don't worry though, I've included some responses for you to use next time this comes up in conversation. Because it will.

Quick side note, these are all real-life remarks that I've gotten when I told people I was a psych major.

Here we go.

1. So are you, like, analyzing me right now?

Well, I wasn't. But yeah. Now I am.

2. Ugh so jealous! You picked the easy major.

"Lol" is all I have to say to this one. I'm gonna go write my 15-page paper on cognitive impairment. You have fun with your five college algebra problems, though!

3. So can you tell me what you think is wrong with me? *Shares entire life story*

Don't get me wrong; I love listening and helping people get through hard times. But we can save the story about how one time that one friend said that one slightly rude comment to you for later.

4. Well, s**t, I have to be careful what I say around you.

Relax, pal. I couldn't diagnose and/or institutionalize you even if I wanted to.

5. OMG! I have the perfect first client for you! *Proceeds to vent about ex-boyfriend or girlfriend*

Possible good response: simply nod your head the entire time, while actually secretly thinking about the Ben and Jerry's carton you're going to go home and demolish after this conversation ends.

6. So you must kind of be like, secretly insane or something to be into Psychology.

Option one: try and hide that you're offended. Option two: just go with it, throw a full-blown tantrum, and scare off this individual, thereby ending this painful conversation.

7. Oh. So you want to be a shrink?

First off, please. Stop. Calling. Therapists. Shrinks. Second, that's not a psych major's one and only job option.

8. You know you have to go to grad school if you ever want a job in Psychology.

Not completely true, for the record. But I am fully aware that I may have to spend up to seven more years of my life in school. Thanks for the friendly reminder.

9. So you... want to work with like... psychopaths?

Let's get serious and completely not-sarcastic for a second. First off, I take personal offense to this one. Having a mental illness does not classify you as a psycho, or not normal, or not deserving of being treated just like anyone else on the planet. Please stop using a handful of umbrella terms to label millions of wonderful individuals. It's not cool and not appreciated.

10. So can you, like, read my mind?

It actually might be fun to say yes to this one. Try it out and see what happens. Get back to me.

11. You must be a really emotional person to want to work in Psychology.

Psychology is more than about feeling happy, or sad, or angry. Psychology is about understanding the most complex thing to ever happen to us: our brain. How it works the way it does, why it works the way it does, and how we can better understand and communicate with this incredibly mysterious, incredibly vast organ in our tiny little skull. That's what psychology is.

So keep your head up, psychology majors, and don't let anyone discourage you about choosing, what is in my opinion, the coolest career field out there. The world needs more people like us.

Short Stories On Odyssey: Roses

What's worth more than red roses?


Five years old and a bouquet of roses rested in her hands. The audience-- clapped away her performance, giving her a standing ovation. She's smiling then because everything made sense, her happiness as bright as the roses she held in her hands.

Fifteen now, and a pile of papers rested on her desk. The teachers all smiled when she walked down the aisle and gave them her presentation. She was content then but oh so stressed, but her parents happy she had an A as a grade, not red on her chest.

Eighteen now and a trail of tears followed her to the door. Partying, and doing some wild things, she just didn't know who she was. She's crying now, doesn't know anymore, slamming her fists into walls, pricking her fingers on roses' thorns.

Twenty-one and a bundle of bills were grasped in her hands. All the men-- clapped and roared as she sold her soul, to the pole, for a dance. She's frowning now because everything went wrong, but she has to stay strong, for rich green money, is worth more than red roses.
