Throwback Songs To Bring Back Into Your Life

These beats are automatic, supersonic, hypnotic, funky fresh.

Throwback Songs To Bring Back Into Your Life
WP content

I'm on my computer writing an essay, and I have my iTunes library which I haven't updated since sixth grade playing in the background. All of a sudden, I hear a song from eighth grade, and I flashback to my first dance where I slow danced with that guy with glasses and we had at least a foot in between us. While the memory may not be the fondest, those throwback songs will always have a special place in my heart. They bring back memories and moments in a way very few senses can. So as I create a whole new Spotify dedicated to the golden years of my elementary and middle-school life, here are a few of my personal favorite that I would love to hear on the radio again:

"Say My Name" by Destiny's Child

Come on, this song needs to come back on the radio. It is legendary and ageless, and we need to educate the next generation of Beyoncé's past. We also need to petition for a Destiny's Child reunion tour. Please...

"Hot in Here" by Nelly

If your parents were like mine, you could only listen to this song at your friends' houses. But this was song was and always will be a staple for the AUX cord

"Complicated" by Avril Lavigne

The amount of angst a seven year old could have with this song is unbelievable. And Avril Lavigne was my muse for rejecting all "preppy clothes" and hoping to one day meet my very own...

"Sk8er Boi" by Avril Lavigne

This. Was. My. Jam. I thought I was so punk and I immediately went to Hot Topic to replicate the exact outfit she was wearing in the music vide.

"Since U Been Gone" by Kelly Clarkson

This was the song you played in your room and danced around like a maniac too. And you always listened to this song when you broke up with your boyfriend of three days on Myspace and just needed someone like Kelly to know what you were going through

"Beautiful Soul" by Jesse McCartney

If Jesse McCartney wasn't your first crush you're lying. Those blonde tips could make any eighth grader swoon, and you know you bought all of the J-14 magazines with his picture on the cover so you could cut it out and paste it on your way (nope, just me?)

"One, Two Step" by Ciara

Automatic, supersonic, hypnotic, funky fresh

"Temperature" by Sean Paul

You may not have been able to sing along, but this was the best song

"Fergalicious" by Fergie

Fer-ga-li-cious def-i-ni-tion make them boys go loco

"Thnks Fr Th Mmrs" by Fall Out Boy

Throwback to when Kim Kardashian was an irrelevant extra in a music video

And lastly, one of the greatest jams of them all...

"Beautiful Girls" by Sean Kingston

There has never been a jam in my life as amazing as this one

Happy listening!

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
