The 12 Best Songs From The Show Shameless

Popular show, Shameless, is all about a dysfunctional family who scam and scheme their way through life. No matter what they go through, they always stick together because, in the end, they are family.

It is the interesting storylines that make the show. But it is also some of the songs that are incorporated into each episode. Shameless does a really good job of selecting songs that fit the scene perfectly. Here are some of the top songs from the show that are featured in seasons one through six.

Season 1

Song #1: The Luck You Got

by The High Strung

“What is this feeling, you’re so sure of?”

This is the song that Shameless fans know all too well. It is played at the beginning of all the episodes, acting as the opening theme song. It plays during that familiar scene of Frank Gallagher getting dragged out of the bathroom and Debbie wrapping little Liam in toilet paper.

Song #2: The Stars Just Blink For Us

by Say Hi

“Oh and the stars, oh, oh and the stars, well, they just blink for us.”

This song is played in the first episode, acting as background music for when Frank is introducing his family, Fiona, Lip, Ian, Carl, Debbie, Liam and of course their neighbors, Kevin and Veronica.

Song #3: Long Time

by Cake

“It’s been a long time, since I’ve seen your smiling face.”

Long Time is played during the saddest scenes in all of season one. While it is sad, you have to admit how catchy the accompanied song is. It is played when Karen’s father goes to an isolated cabin positioned in the middle of ice. Then, we all know what happens next.

Season 2

Song #4: Postcards Sent West

by The Little Heroes

“Tonight there will be no reservations. There will be no alibis tonight.”

Fiona encourages Debbie to have her own sleepover, but the guest list is struggling to come together as Deb does not have as many friends as Fiona figured. Fiona goes into the bathroom to make a call to Steve, hoping that he could somehow make it to the party, which she realizes is a long shot as he is halfway across the world.

Song #5: Get On The Road

by Tired Pony

“So I, get on the road and ride to you.”

Lip whispers the baby’s condition to the parents in the hallway but repeating the newborn’s status is not easy. Lip leaves the hospital, wandering the streets. In the next scene, Sheila steals the baby from the hospital, wanting to care and look after it since Karen did not want to be responsible, especially because of his condition.

Song #6: Winter

by Joshua Radin

“I remember the sound of your November downtown.”

It has been a rough night for all of the kids, Fiona included. It is late at night when Debbie, Carl, and Ian can not sleep. They gather in Fiona’s room, crying and upset by what they had just witnessed. Monica, blood, on the kitchen floor.

Season 3

Song #7: Time is the Anchor

by Chris Pureka

“Because you know that it might be a lesson in letting go, it might be a lesson in losing the best things.”

The Gallaghers are gathered around the dinner table, Veronica included. Kevin comes in, apologizing and promising to Veronica that he is not leaving her or anybody. Just as the song begins playing, Sheryl comes into the kitchen and a fight goes down.

Season 4

Song #8: All Night

by Icona Pop

And it feels like we could do this all night.”

This is the season when Debbie is more mature than ever. She is at the arcade with a friend when they manage to meet two cute boys. The scene ends with Debbie and Matty dancing together.

Song #9: Your Country

by Lovedrug

“Say what you want to, it’s your country.”

This song appears in a quick clip as Frank is laying in a wheelbarrow. Him, along with a formed crew from The Alibi, just returned to Sheila’s after stealing blankets.

Season 5

Song #10: Tongues

by Joywave

“I hear their mouths making foreign sounds.”

Ian takes baby Yevgeny under his own care and takes him on a car ride. Ian is talking to the baby all about Florida and ignores the many calls from Mickey.

Season 6

Song #11: Cold Creeps

by Owl John

“Cold creeps up the length of my spine.”

Fiona thought she had everything figured out. She thought she would be able to keep the house. But when auction time comes around, another family managed to steal the house from them.

Song #12: All For You

by Damien Jurado

“Colors divide, creation its size and all for you.”

Fiona and Lip are sitting on the porch steps, the house about to be locked up. Fiona steps inside the house one more time. She stands in the middle of the living room before moving to the kitchen. Seeing the house empty and quiet kills her on the inside.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!
