9 Songs That Are A Must For Any Work Day Playlist

As long as people are literally dying (or just doing obviously dumb stuff), lifeguarding can have the tendency to become a bit boring.

Especially when there are only like two people in the pool.

And have been only two people.

For like two hours.


ANYWAY. Music is something that can kick us in the head and really help keep us attentive and alert. But of course, it is still a job where the music is being played. It's not like we can bust out some Eminem, Avenged Sevenfold, or Korn. For some reason, patrons aren't always a fan of that.

But classics… classics have that title for a reason. And when you hear the start of one after standing around for an hour watching one person, it brings a joy to your soul that I really can't describe.

However, I don't know if everyone considers these next few songs to be "classics". But whatever you consider them to be, they rightfully deserve a place on your playlist.

1. "All Star" by Smash Mouth. 

Our big green friend is who we have to thank for this classic. I dream about having a bread like that. I'm not saying what kind of dreams though...

2. "Africa" by Toto.

The Wheezer version is legit, but you can't beat the OG song. I hope to see the blessed rains of Africa with my own eyes.

3. "Fireflies" by Owl City.

Owl City had so much talent, and their songs were literally whatever I thought about when thinking of my crushes way back when.

4. "What Is Love" by Haddaway.

The voices in this are what I want to wake up to every morning--preferably welcoming me with a big bowl and warm chocolate. Hot chocolate is too much for me when it's early.

5. "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen. 

Have you seen this music video? Hell, I wouldn't mind the guy to call me maybe. Seriously, hmu. We can go hang or something.

6. "Friday" Rebecca Black. 

If anyone can make the lyrics, "It's Friday, Friday | Gotta get down on Friday | Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend, weekend | Friday, Friday | Gettin' down on Friday | Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend" work, it's not Rebecca Black. However, I still give her props for trying and hearing this song come over the speakers gives me hope I too can try at the impossible.

7. "Take Me Home, Country Roads" by John Denver.

I have NEVER wanted to visit West Virginia, nor do I think I ever will. #sorrynotsorry

But this song.. this song NEARLY makes me rethink that.

8. "Never Gonna Give You Up" by Rick Astley.

At one point I had most of this videos YouTube URL memorized.

9. "Hotline Bling" by Drake.

Maybe if I watch this enough I'll be able to learn how Drake makes his swag so, swaggy.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
