9 Oldies But Goodies That You Need To Blare Today

Today we have some of the greatest rappers of all time from Gucci Mane to Post Malone, but don't forget about the phenomenal music that was created before a lot of us was even born. Music now is good, and I still listen to Ariana Grande just as much as the next person don't get me wrong, I just make sure to have a wide variety of classics on my Spotify playlist too.

Here are some songs that you most definitely need to have added to your playlist today.

“Killer Queen” – Queen


If you want to feel like a bad b*tch for the day then I highly recommend you listen to this song. This is just one of the many songs that the legend Freddie Mercury sang, so please if you haven't already check out more of their songs such as "I Want To Break Free," "Fat Bottomed Girls," and "Bohemian Rhapsody." (Check out the movie too.)

"Paint It, Black” – The Rolling Stones


This is a very chill but upbeat song too. I like to listen to this while I'm either working out or studying. Listen to "She's A Rainbow," while you're at it too, and then thank me later.

“Stairway to Heaven” –Led Zeppelin


UH yeah, this is a classic that needs to be heard more by the younger generations. Robert Plant is THE man. Also, if you haven't heard the newer band Greta Van Fleet, the lead singer sounds exactly like him.

“Hotel California” – Eagles


A song that is widely known, but not played enough. Put this on your road trip playlist, along with "Take It Easy," as well.

“Sweet Emotion” – Aerosmith


I have this on my pregame playlist, and it most definitely helps me when I am taking a shot or two before heading out to the bars. Thank you, Steven Tyler, I appreciate you.

“Devil Woman” – Cliff Richard

Another banger that I listen to often. This is good for listening to at any time but especially good around Halloween time.

“Bad Moon Rising” – Creedence Clearwater Revival

This is yet another song that would be perfect for your Halloween party playlist. I actually discovered this song through Netflix's "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina."

“The Chain” — Fleetwood Mac


Once you listen to this I'm sure Fleetwood Mac will become your next favorite band and you will need to have more Stevie Nicks in your life.

“Wildflowers” —Tom Petty 


A beautiful song sang by a beautiful man. RIP, Tom Petty, thank you for giving us songs like this, "Free Fallin'," "American Girl," and "Mary Jane's Last Dance."

I feel like after you listen to all of these songs you will start to appreciate older music more than today's music. You can turn off Lil Pump now, you're welcome.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

-Having struggled with acne prone skin for years, I was cautious to try a new serum on top of the other products I've come to trust.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

I am not in any way any sort of medical expert. These are just some tricks that work for me and have worked for others who also suffer from anxiety. These may not work for everyone, but I do hope these help some people in their fight against anxiety.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?
