Remember when you were in middle school and your parents got you your first iPod touch for Christmas, and now you had a way to text your friends as well as some access to the internet? I don't. I didn't get my first iPhone until I was right about to enter high school, but what I did have was a little, blue iPod shuffle. I had a very limited song selection on this tiny iPod, most of which were show tunes.

However, while my bus driver would play the local radio station, I would be listening for some new songs to add to my collection next time someone gave me an iTunes gift card. In my opinion, the 25 songs I have listed below are some of the greatest hits of my middle school days.

1. "Can't Hold Us" — Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

2. "Hey, Soul Sister" — Train

3. "Classic" — MKTO

4. "Clarity" — Zedd, Foxes

5. "Only Girl (In the World)" — Rihanna

6. "Rolling in the Deep" — Adele

7. "We are Young" — fun., Janelle Monáe

8. "Uptown Funk" — Mark Ronson, Bruno Mars

9. "Radioactive" — Imagine Dragons

10. "Call Me Maybe" — Carly Rae Jepsen

11. "Thrift Shop" — Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

12. "Happy" — Pharrell Williams

13. "Riptide" — Vance Joy

14. "I Will Wait" — Mumford & Sons

15. "Titanium" — David Guetta, Sia

16. "Some Nights" — fun.

17. "Give Your Heart a Break" — Demi Lovato

18. "I Won't Give Up" — Jason Mraz

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day
Cape Cod Irish

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation.
