The 1975 are notorious for busting out bop after meaningful bop, and this song is no different. Wake up to this track and you can bank on those cooler fall days feeling just as magical as those summer nights you might be missing.
For our stateside fans, the title speaks for itself. But regardless of where you live, this song is bound to get you pumped and ready to take on the day. The chorus refuses to quit, and there’s a message of camaraderie that’s guaranteed to brighten almost any mood.
BORNS’s vocals on top of the glittery fun nature of this song is the ideal compliment for any school-prep soundtrack.
Get those positive juices flowing! The mix of pop vocals and electronic beats make this song a must to get you going in the right direction.
Yes, you read that right. Ansel Elgort has made it no secret that music is a huge part of his life and career, but he’s dropped his usual DJ alias “Ansolo” for this track and it holds up to his Hollywood-recognized name. And he absolutely kills it.
If Bieber’s “Sorry” and “Get Used To It” had a baby sibling it would be this song and it would definitely be the favorite, electro-pop child. It’s mellow enough to ease you through the 8am drag, but still upbeat enough to put some much needed pep in your step.
Who doesn’t love a classic, pop “I love you” track?! LANY take their signature vibes and paint a picture of the most innocent parts of being with somebody. It’s adolescence in a nutshell (and you’ll seem super cool when you tell your friends about such a rad new band).
For the more mature, deep vibe oriented fans, take a listen to this one. It adds some much needed variety to your day and gives you that slight badass edge that everyone needs from time to time. A definite top pick for me.
If you aren’t willing to jam out to pop music just because it’s everywhere, you’re living your life wrong. This is song is a bop and a half and has a melody you want to sing all day every day. And so you should.
For anybody who gets super nostalgic about school starting – or, if you’re a senior like me, coming to an end – then this one is for you. Blast this song whenever you need a reminder that you’re only young once
