Best Songs From 2008

18 Songs From 2008 For Summer of 2018

A decade old, but still hot


2008: The year when Barack Obama and Joe Biden were first elected, winning against John McCain and Sarah Palin (but not before lots of memes were created). Michael Jackson was still alive. American Idol was still popular featuring judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson with contestant David Cook winning. Disney's "Wall-E" and "High School Musical 3: Senior Year" came out. Crazy times.

Surprisingly some pretty good music also came out of that year. Although they may have come out a decade ago, these songs from the Billboard Hot 100 in 2008 are still faves that everyone can't help but sing and dance along to. These songs are perfect crowd-pleasers for long road trips or backyard barbeque parties.

Have fun listening and don't get too nostalgic!

10 TV Shows You Need To Watch On Hulu

Hulu is slept on


I have recently moved to watch shows and movies on Hulu and Netflix. Hulu has a lot of great shows and movies to offer that aren't on Netflix. While Netflix is still great, Hulu is definitely starting to grow on me. Here are some shows that I have watched or have started watching on Hulu that I think are pretty great!

1. 11.22.63

If you love James Franco and Stephen King, you'll love this show. The first episode is a bit long, but all the other episodes are only 45 minutes. The plot line is pretty interesting. I also like that it doesn't tell you everything, it shows it to you and you piece things together.

2. The Act

The fact that this show is based on a true story is just insane. The acting is really great, especially if you watch actual videos of Gypsy, Joey King does a great job.

3. Castle Rock

Another Stephen King masterpiece. This show is riveting and really makes you think about what the truth is in the context of the story, and brings in some ethical questions.

4. Future Man

I've only recently started this but it's pretty interesting and funny.

5. The O.C.

The O.C. (TV Series 2003–2007) - IMDb

This show was great. Sometimes it was a bit annoying, but it is a classic show from the early 2000s. You really become invested in all the characters and your opinion may change on some characters because they grow and develop throughout the show.

6. The Handmaid's Tale

If you've read the book, you should definitely watch the show.

7. Obsession: Dark Desires

I just love true crime stories and this really dives deep into crime stories and the darkest parts of humanity.

8. Intervention

This show can be really sad or frustrating, but I think it's good for people to see the reality of addiction.

9. Smallville

Smallville (2001-2011)

I also started this one very recently and I've always wanted to watch it. It can be cheesy but it's pretty entertaining.

10. Brooklyn Nine-Nine

This is a great show if you want to laugh. I love all of the characters and everything they bring to the table.
