Best Songs You've Probably Never Heard Of

When asked to name our favorite artists, I'm sure a couple of names come to mind. Some people would say Bruno Mars, others Beyoncé, or maybe even mention a classic like Billy Joel. While these artists are great at producing songs that are well known by all ages, there are other artists out there who also produce great songs that are unfortunately not heard that often. In this article, I am going to list some songs that you've probably never heard of, but that will surely get you hooked and asking for more.

1. LP: "Into The Wild"

Out of all the songs on this list, this is probably the one that might seem the most recognizable. LP's "Into the Wild" was featured on a Citi Bank commercial in 2012 and soon became a popular song within the indie-pop circle. This song is sure to get you hooked on LP.

2. Oliver Penn: "The Emperor" (ft. Guilla)

Some have called him an "alternative rock cowboy," but I call him a rising musician and a great friend of mine. If there is someone to keep on your radar, it's Oliver and his unique and original sound. On you can find links to his song "The Emperor" as well as other cool stuff like events and social media pages.

3. Trombone Shorty: "Hurricane Season"

Most of my band friends will know this song, but for those of you who don't listen to this type of music, Trombone Shorty and his song "Hurricane Season" is a good way to get introduced to this genre.

4. Eivør: "Hounds Of Love"

While not very popular in the U.S., Eivør has a strong presence in Europe. As a native of the Faroe Islands, Eivør's sound is a blend of traditional Faroese folk infused with a hint of modern pop and rock. If her songs were played here in the U.S., I'm sure she would be very popular. Check out her song "Hounds of Love" on Youtube.

5. LP: "Lost On You"

Once again, LP is featured on this list because I truly can't help it. When listening to her song "Lost On You," try to find the live version because she's one of those artists that sounds even better without radio edit.

6. Busty and the Bass: "The Real"

If you are looking for a fun song featuring a lot of brass and vocals, this is the song for you. I just learned about this song a couple of days ago and I can't stop listening to it. Check out their song "The Real."

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
