Relive Summer 2013 By Jamming To These 12 Throwback Songs
Bailey Reiser

Every summer feels like there is a certain playlist of songs that continuously play on the radio. However, after the summer is over, a lot of the songs go on the back burner and only play every once in a while on some random radio station. I feel like the memories associated with the music are something that will all come flooding back when you listen to music. The summer before high school for me was extremely fun — I spent a lot of time dancing and with friends. Here's a list of 12 songs from the summer of 2013 to bring all of your nostalgic summer memories back in order to prep for a new, amazing summer filled with adventures.

1. "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke feat T.I. and Pharrell

With all the controversy surrounding this music video, the nation still couldn't help but dance around to the catchy tune.

2. "We Can't Stop" by Miley Cyrus 

Miley had just come back, and she seemed absolutely crazy. There was definitely a fanbase that loved it but also a group that didn't love it as fully. The new Miley was here though. You best believe she made one of the songs of the summer.

3. "Feel This Moment" by Pitbull feat. Christina Aguilera

As a younger me, I wanted to be Christina Aguilera so badly that I remember singing along with this song pretending to be her.

4. "The Way" by Ariana Grande feat. Mac Miller

This was the song where I found out Ariana and Mac were together — it made my heart soar. I have to bring this one back just because you can tell how in love they were, and Mac will always have a special place in my heart.

5. "I Need Your Love" by Calvin Harris feat. Ellie Goulding

I can picture my 14-year-old self jamming out to this song now. I swear I knew every single word and where every beat hit to the point that I was pretty confident I could recreate the song if I had wanted to.

6. "I Love It" by Icona Pop feat. Charlie XCX

My mom used to play this song in her car all the time. I remember the one time we were listening to it on a radio station that didn't censor the lyrics and it said "s***." I was so concerned that my young self had said the word in front of my mother, but we both just looked at each other and laughed it off.

7. "Radioactive" by Imagine Dragons

I remember learning a dance to this song during the beginning of my summer dance classes and thinking that it was such a good song that I had never heard before. I wished it would be more popular, so it could be on the radio because it was SUCH a good song. Luckily, it's like the heavens listened because it was a chart-topper a few weeks later.

8. "Cruise" by Florida Georgia Line

Okay, you can't resist listening to this song and tell me that it doesn't sound like summer to you. I would listen to this song and imagine the day I was going to have my license, so I could drive around with my windows down.

9. "Cups (When I'm Gone)" by Anna Kendrick

In 2013, I was obsessed with Pitch Perfect, and it really showed! I loved this song SO much that every time it would come on the radio, I had to grab a cup and play along.

10. "Treasure" by Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars was my biggest celebrity crush all through middle school all the way into my freshman year of high school. When I would hear this song on the radio, my heart would flutter, immediately wanting to get up and move.

11. "Clarity" by Zedd feat. Foxes

The true start of my LOVE for EDM music and music that made you just want to get up and dance.

12. "Take Back The Night" by Justin Timberlake

Some older JT jams were always the way to go when getting ready to go to the movies or out bowling with friends when I was a freshman in high school. This song brings back so many memories of pumping myself up before hanging out with all my friends.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

5 Things That 'Shameless' Got Wrong About Bipolar Disorder

There is so much more than Ian and Monica lead viewers to believe.

"Shameless" is a hit television series that airs across the world, for my own personal viewing on Netflix. While the show is a major hit, people aren't talking about the issues in the portrayal in the "mental health" category. Ian and Monica are both pretty important characters with bipolar disorder (BD). There are, however, five major flaws with what their bipolar looks like.

Dear Grandma,

I wish my words could adequately explain how much I miss seeing your smile and hearing your laugh. You were such a bright ray of sunshine in my life and now that you're gone, I can't help but remember all the times we had together.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.

I don't want to point fingers or call anyone out, but it seems as though since the school year came to a close and summer officially started, more and more people began to care less and less about coronavirus (COVID-19).

I understand that eventually you have to get on with your life and cannot live in isolation forever, but people are still dying, cases are still increasing, and COVID is clearly not going anywhere for the time being.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

The NBA is back, and for basketball fans, like myself, it has been the BEST news we have heard since COVID-19 shutdown play indefinitely. I mean, come on, we need to see if James Harden can once again perform so well he has back-to-back 50 point games, Kawhi can lead another team to the championship title, and whether Giannis is going to be back-to-back MVP... among like 500 other things running through our heads!

In the midst of all of the amazing statistics and records that these players are breaking, though, we also just love the NBA because well, there are some pretty good looking guys out there. Here are the 19 hottest NBA players (in no particular order) you would totally let slam dunk on you now that the NBA has returned.
