9 Albums That Will Bring You Right Back To High School Hallways

High school was a weird time for everybody. Something that made it a little more tolerable was constructing a sweet playlist to complement the teen angst that was displayed to displayed to anyone who would listen, willingly or unwillingly.

Some of the most interesting conversations you can have with a person are about who you were in high school and the types of music that they listened to.

Music can be a big part of someone's life and I find it interesting how a person's taste in music can change over time depending who they are and what they are personally going through at that moment.

Even though I have not graduated from high school not too long ago, I still find myself nostalgic for certain songs and albums that were popular during that time period which is why I chose to compile this list.

I hope that this article serves as a sort of time capsule of who I was in high school as well as jog some of your favorite high school memories!

1. The Disappearance of a Girl- Phildel

Even though this album was never very popular, it is to this day one of my favorites! It has a unique sound and a really interesting song selection that I absolutely love. It is a great lowkey album to just have in the background and not be overly distracting.

Favorite songs: Beside You; Moonsea

2. Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die- Panic! At the Disco

Who can forget the moment that Panic! at the Disco came back with an awesome album. This album is particularly nostalgic for me due to the fact that it was the first Panic! at the Disco albums that I listened to in its entirety and thoroughly enjoying every single track.

Favorite Songs: This is Gospel; Casual Affair

3. Lungs- Florence + the Machine

One of my favorite albums of all time. This was also one of my favorite albums during my middle school years as well. I do believe that there was a point in my life where I knew every word on this album, but sadly that is a skill I no longer have. Now that I think back to it, I have a feeling that one of the reasons why I liked this album so much was because I really like the album art and felt that it looked cool on my iTunes page...

Favorite Songs: Cosmic Love; Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up).

4. Pure Heroine- Lorde

This is Lorde's first album and my favorite out of the two that she currently has available. I always thought it was cool that Lorde was about the same age that I was and her songs were about topics I could relate to. (which was at the time, the previously mentioned teen angst). Overall, this album holds a very special place in my heart.

Favorite Songs: Tennis Court; Buzzcut Season

5. Born to Die- Lana Del Rey

I used to love all of Lana Del Rey's song in high school, but sadly I do not believe that that is the case any longer. This album is a perfect example of how my music tastes have changed over time, do to the fact that I find it very difficult to tolerate Lana Del Rey's music. I mean, it's still good, just not for me, I guess...

Favorite Songs: Born to Die; Video Games

6. Save Rock and Rock- Fall Out Boy

I feel that this album is the most "nostalgic" out of all of the other albums that I have mentioned on this list. I have a theory that everyone who went to high school around the same time that I did have listened to this album in its entirety in one way or another. It was just one of those albums that felt inescapable but was enjoyable nonetheless.

Favorite Songs: The Mighty Fall, Young Volcanos

7. Night Visions- Imagine Dragons

To this day, I still consider Radioactive by Imagine Dragons as one of my favorite songs of all time. Whenever I hear it, I am automatically transported back to my high school days. To be completely honest, I do find myself enjoying their newer albums more, but overall it is still a pretty good album.

Favorite Songs: Radioactive; Nothing Left to Say/ Rocks

8. 21- Adele

Adele was another artist whose music was everywhere during my high school years. Even though I do not find myself, choosing to listen to her music now as often as I did in high school, I still believe that it is a pretty solid album.

Favorite Songs: Turning Tables; Set Fire to the Rain

9. Les Miserables- Original Broadway Cast

Due to the fact that fact that the popular musical got a film adaption, Les Miserable was inescapable in high school music programs everywhere. I do not believe that this was an album that I owned and listened to regularly, but it was definitely an album that was played a lot during that time around me, which is why thinking about it always makes me nostalgic.

Favorite songs: I Dreamed a Dream; Do You Hear the People Sing.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
