For years, I have been putting foreign music videos in a collection. Now, I decided to rank all of the music videos in that collection. I also decided to cover different languages because I would probably choose only French songs for this list if not. Therefore, some good songs are left out of this list, but I am still satisfied with the results. I hope this encourages you to listen to all different kinds of music!

1. "Sfera Ebbasta" - Bottiglie Privè (Italian)

I cry every time I watch this. I feel new emotions whenever I watch this video that I can't explain. I don't know what he is singing about, but I can relate anyways. I never thought I would like this kind of song, but in the end, I believe this song is one of the best songs of all time.

2. "Lomepal" - 1000°C (feat. Roméo Elvis) (French)

This song is very nostalgic to me. I distinctly remember listening to it when I had final exams back in high school. This song allowed me to power through my stress, and I held my head up high when I entered the gym, sat down at a desk, and started writing my exam. This video was powerful and allowed me to visualize what it's about whenever I listen to it again.

3. "Aitana" - 11 RAZONES (Spanish)

I'm not too fond of many Spanish songs for some reason, but this is certainly one of the best Spanish songs that I have listened to, even though I didn't grow up in the '90s. The song was oddly nostalgic to me, and it felt like I listened to something like it in the past.

4. "Cezinando" - Botanisk Hage (Norwegian)

This is probably the simplest music video on this list. He is just dancing in different backgrounds. However, it is effective, and you can see how passionate he is about his song. The music video makes me want to dance and think about my past life every time I see it.

5. "JóiPé x Króli" - Þráhyggja (Icelandic)

This was the very first song that introduced me to foreign music. I remember when I first listened to this song I was going to Universal for the very first time. A couple of months later, after watching the music video, it took me back to old memories. This music video was certainly a gateway drug to other foreign music videos that came into my life.

6. "Otsochodzi" - Dla mnie (Polish)

This song isn't the best without the music video itself. The music video tells a story, and it would probably be a good trailer for an upcoming movie. That's how good the music video is - it turned a decent song into one of the top foreign songs that I have listened to thus far.

7. "Asme" - Shooting Range (Swedish)

Like my number one music video, I never thought that I would like a song like this. Yet, at the end, when this music video first came out, I couldn't stop listening to it. The music video had a story to it, which made the song even better, like a movie.

8. "Sarah Lombardi" - Ich (German)

This song recently came out, and I fell in love just in my first listen. The music video is probably discussing something controversial, yet since I don't know what she is saying, it doesn't matter. I decide to enjoy the song and enjoy the moment. German songs always shock me because I would never think it would be a good language for song-making, but some German songs are my personal favorites.

9. "Cœur de pirate" - T'es belle (French Canadian)

This music video is probably discussing a sensitive topic, but I don't know exactly what they are saying. I come up with my own story. The song is decent, but French Canadian music always has been nostalgic to me, and the music video is a great visualizer.

10. "Milbo" - Altid på (Danish)

I remember listening to this music video over and over again. Yet, nowadays, the song is annoying to listen to. The song is, however, still one of my favorite foreign songs to listen to. The song probably didn't age well, and the song may even discuss something silly, but it's certainly nostalgic to me.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
