Flashback to 10-year-old me screaming to these songs, pretending I just had my heart broken.

16 Throwback Songs That Gave Childhood Me Some Big Feelings

Flashback to 2009. You're back in middle school. It's 10 p.m. on a school night and you're listening to music on your iPod Nano (or iPod Shuffle/iPod Touch). You're laying in bed, screaming your heart out. You're sad, and your heart is broken... or is it?

I can't count how many times back then I listened to songs, pretending as though I related to the artists. I don't even know how many times I sat there, angry at boys or the world, belting my whole heart and soul into songs by Kelly Clarkson, Avril Lavigne, and Jordin Sparks.

It's funny looking back, actually having experienced real heartbreak and feeling bitter at the world for outcomes beyond my control. Back then, it was just little ol' me, experiencing some false big feelings. Now, it's still me, experiencing big feelings I wish I didn't have to feel.

Here are 15 songs I screamed my heart and soul into, and I bet you did too.

"Impossible" - Shontelle

"Unfaithful" - Rihanna

"What Hurts The Most" - Rascal Flats

"Pocketful of Sunshine" - Natasha Bedingfield

"One Step At a Time" - Jordin Sparks

"If I Die Young" - The Band Perry

"Rolling in the Deep" - Adele

"Too Little Too Late" - JoJo

"Fucking Perfect" - P!nk

"Breakaway" - Kelly Clarkson

"Sk8er Boi" - Avril Lavigne

"Tattoo" - Jordin Sparks

"I Never Told You" - Colbie Caillat

"Girlfriend" - Avril Lavigne

"Behind These Hazel Eyes" - Kelly Clarkson

"No Air" - Jordin Sparks

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
