9 Oldies But Goodies That You Need To Blare Today
Start writing a post

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.

Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
