A Playlist From The iPod Of A Middle Schooler In 2013

Social media was just on the cusp of being in nearly every aspect of our lives, Obama was entering his second presidential term, and internet trends began to reach people by the billions. People quoted Perks of Being a Wallflower on their sepia-toned Tumblrs, showed their friends this new thing called "Vine", and walked outside in galaxy leggings. The world was a strange and interesting place, and even more so when looked at through the eyes of a middle schooler.

Here are a few songs that will have you singing along in the name of 2013... right after you put your Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm on.
