Top 5ive: Lindsay Lohan Singles

I don’t know about you but I have been straight up LIVING for Lindsay Lohan’s newest TV venture called “Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club” I’m all for boss LiLo. She literally takes no prisons in the show and who can blame her. It’s her name, and her brand. I would be doing that same thing. In honor of this, I thought it would be fitting to countdown her biggest singles.

Of course I want my own show LiLo.

“Bossy”

While this wasn’t an official single, it was slated to be the newest single off of her never-released third album. This song is a sleeper bop. It’s not as catchy as her previous song but it was still something that you can jam out to because it has a dance beat. It was released in 2008, it didn’t get the attention it deserves until MTV pulled it out of its life of obscurity. It’s now theme song for “Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club.” That’s because she’s now a boss bitch. It’s about time that “Bossy” gets into that limelight.

“Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father)”

Honestly, This is my favorite song that she has done just because it’s just so raw and emotional. It came off of her second album “A Little More Personal (Raw)” and it was her ode to daddy issues. It was an open letter to her father, Michael, and was just her way to express her feeling. The raspy vocals with the rock feel of the song are so good. Lindsay even directed the video, which was just even better because it was raw, emotional, and just disturbing. I recommend watching the video if you haven’t already.

“Over”

This is a deep cut song off of her first album “Speak.” Sure, it was a single but it was just an underrated single. It’s a pop-rock ballad that has opens with a slow and steady beat before kicking into high gear for a power ballad. The video itself tells the story of the so well. Forbidden love, emotional baggage, and the stereotypical early 2000s garage band singling in the song. I remember thinking that this was scandalous at the time due to the scenes in the camper. sigh. If that camper could talk.

“Rumors”

Lindsay’s first single is probably her most famous and the most relatable until “Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father).” It’s a forgot gem unless you stan Lindsay or was around during this time. The song is all about her relationship with the paparazzi and how everyone was trying to start rumors about her. It was the literal precursor to Miley Cyrus’ “Can’t Be Tamed.” I honestly forgot how much of a banger this song was until I turned it up and got down to it. Like, it’s everything.

Honorable Mention

“Drama Girl (That Girl)”

While we can all agree that the movie, “Confessions of A Teenage Drama Queen,” was a dumpster fire train wreck of crap. The song from the song is actually a bop. It’s probably the best part of the entire movie. The song was the final song in the movie was the big final number the movie’s musical portion. The video itself is your standard promotional music video for a movie. It has Lindsay performing in an audition while clips from the movie play in the background. Not iconic to make the list official but something that shouldn’t be totally overlooked

“Ultimate”

While this isn’t an official single and apart of her solo discography, this is probably her best known and loved song. It from her hit 2003 movie “Freaky Friday,” a remake of a Disney movie that came out in 1976. It’s our first glance at the fact that Lindsay had some pipes on her. Before this, she was there but lost in the crowd of her peers. This movie and song are what really pushed Lindsay Lohan into stardom. Without, we wouldn’t be blessed with her talents like we are today.

I highly recommend checking out Lindsay Lohan’s albums because they aren’t all that bad. In fact, I wish we will get more music from her. I need more Lindsay’s music. Also, I need more of that iconic dance that she was doing at her club.

Top 5ive Iconic Theme songs from The WB

I have developed an addiction to the teen dramas of the late 90s and early 00s. Hulu is currently feeding my addicting and is my drug dealer. And no, this isn’t a sponsor deal. Through, I am totally down for one if Hulu would like to make it one. I’ll even take a Netflix sponsor deal too as they also have a good amount of classic teen shows. I thought it was only fitting that we take a moment to remember the channel that gave us such good memories in the 90s. The WB. It premiered on January 11th in 1995. In the late 90s early 2000s, The WB had literally all the best shows. They also had the most iconic theme songs as well.

In honor of what was a staple to many teens, it’s time to reminisce about their top 5ive iconic theme songs. So these are all song that was raised to their iconic status by the fact their television were everything.

“Save Me” by Remy Zero from “Smallville”

Before there was “Arrow,” The WB had the show “Smallville.” The show followed the origin story of Clark Kent, better known as Superman. It ran for 10 seasons and this show was pretty much everything. I missed it during its original run (I was 10 when it premiered). But the show opening is so iconic that we are still talking about it. Hearing “SOMEBODY SAAAVVVEEE MMEEEE” on your tv just brings back the feels. I need somebody to save me every time I hear it. The video that played was just so cool. Especially towards the end of the series. The explosions at the actor slowly come front and their name appears is everything.

“I Don’t Wanna Be” by Gavin Degraw from “One Tree Hill”

Remember the hunk that was Chad Michael Murray, or CMM? If you don’t, he was Zac Efron before while Zac Efron was on “Summerland.” Well, he was on a little show called “One Tree Hill.” It about two half-brothers and their life on a hill with only one tree. It was pretty much like Dawson’s Creek. For seasons one through four and season eight, they used “I Don’t Wanna Be” by Gavin Degraw as the opening. The way they used the song to was just everything. It starts off nice and slow and building up to kicking into the beat and really setting the tone for what to expect. The song is more iconic than the actual opening video. It’s just kind of blah compared to other iconic openings.

“I Don’t Want to Wait” by Paula Cole from “Dawson’s Creek”

While if you watch the show on Hulu, this song isn’t in the opening but rather just a more awkward song. The opening for “Dawson’s Creek” is probably the most iconic both audio and video. You have a playful song just casually playing in the background while the cast is just chilling there having fun at the creek in Massachusetts. Apparently, it doesn’t snow there or it only does it in small burst. Anyways “I Don’t Want to Wait” still doesn’t fit with the opening but yet it fits with the overall theme of the show. You can’t help but think of James Van Der Beek paddling his little boat up a creek that you can easily walk around or through. Either way, this was the format for all teen drama openings.

“How soon is now?” by Love Spit Love from “Charmed”

“How soon is now?” was pretty much a staple of many 90’s shows and movie. It was most famously featured in the witchcraft movie “The Craft” before it became the anthem for the Aaron Spelling show “Charmed.” Following three powerful witch sisters, “Charmed” had the same feeling that “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” had as it was this kickass show where they found demons and other supernatural themes villains. While the song is no longer there when you binge in the show on Netflix, this theme song is iconic. Even the opening video playing under it had a super cool effect and it just gave off such nice vibe.

Honorable Mention

“‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ Theme” by Nerf Herder from “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”

While this isn’t an actual song, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” is the single most iconic show that the WB gave the world. It would be a tragedy not to mention this show. They took the 1992 movie that wasn’t very good and turned into a teenage masterpiece. The theme for the series just made everything click. While I prefer the newer version of the theme from Season 3 to season 7, it’s still such an iconic theme and opening. The hero shot at the end always makes me smile.

“Where You Lead” by Carole King and Louise Goffin from “Gilmore Girls”

Whether you actually watched this show or not, everyone knows the theme song from “Gilmore Girls.” It just has one of those theme songs that while it gets a tad bit annoying, it’s just an iconic because it perfectly matched the theme and the overall feel of the show. It was a show about small-town life and dealing with what comes up in your life. It’s honestly a show that I didn’t get or find funny until I got older. It’s a funnier version of “Seinfeld.” I’ll end it there before I ruffle too many feathers.

All the shows mentioned above are available on either Netflix and Hulu (hit me up if you are looking to hook up me with a brand deal). I recommend watching all of them because it’s really interesting to see how teen shows have progressed from then and now. Until then, I’ll go back to wishing I was a teen in the late 90s.

Top 5ive: Things I want to happen in 2019

As the new year approaches, it’s time look forward to all the things that can happen in the new year. It’s a fresh start so literally, anything is possible. It’s like the first day of school. We start off with excitement before being over it and counting down until vacation. It’s time to get ready to make 2019 our bitch. So here are the top 5ive things I want to happen in 2019:

CLICK HERE FOR WHAT I WANTED TO HAPPEN IN 2018

5. People being more caring and understand

This is last on my list because I know this isn’t going to happen. I just hope people have a better understanding of each other and just being more caring. As I said in my what I learned in 2018, just taking the time to show someone compassion then it could change a lot. It can also show you another side of something you may or may not agree on.

4. “Lindsay Lohan’s Beach House” to be EVERYTHING

The cast of the show.

I don’t know about you but I’m stoked for LiLo’s newest reality show. I’m hoping that everyone is stoked because frankly, I need more Lindsay in my life. We have all seen the videos from her cool place in Mykonos and honestly, it seems like it’s going to be a hot mess of a good time. It’s a sober Linsday running her own club and just being a boss bitch. I’m here to be a boss ass bitch. Lilo probably wakes up and goes “I’m that bitch.” Lindsay is that bitch and we love her for it.

3. The year of Dove Cameron

While I still deeply and utterly depressed that Dove Cameron isn’t Sabrina Spellman on “The Chilling Adventure of Sabrina,” I have a feeling that it will be her year. Dove is currently KILLING IT on Broadway as Cher in “Clueless.” I’m still here patiently waiting for her first single and album. Hopefully, she blesses our ears with her music. We also have what seems to be the final “Descendants” movie coming out in the summer. It’s just going to be a good year to be Dove Cameron. I need more Dove in my life. I also need more of her adorable relationship with Thomas Doherty. They are literally everything and I need more of them in my life. I’m also waiting for a duet love song that will make my heart cry.

2. Ariana Grande’s reign will continue

2018 was a very good year for Miss Grande professionally. I have a feeling that her reign in the Queendom will continue on in 2019. As of writing this, “Thank u, next” the album hasn’t been released. Nor has the video for “Imagine” that she’s been hyping on Twitter and honestly, it looks stunning. While we like to think that part of “Sweetener” doesn’t exist, it was still a hit album. I like to think we have songs like “No Tears Left to Cry,” “God is a Woman,” and “Breathin'” for that. Let’s be real: those songs with a few other saved the album. But stan either way.

Ariana will begin her 2019 Sweetener world tour and I have a feeling that it will only go up from there. Get ready for Ariana Grande! By the end of 2019, we will all be calling her Miss Butera. You know the joke that comes with Miss Butera.

1. Oprah will finalize her master plans

CLICK HERE TO READ MORE ABOUT OPRAH AND HER THOUGHTS ON BEING PRESIDENT

If you aren’t terrified of Oprah Winfrey and the power that she wields then you need to be. Look, Oprah has the power to make or literally break you. While I liked Barack Obama, she helped him out greatly when it comes to getting elected as President. I’m honestly waiting for her to run and WIN the presidency of United States. I know that she is planning for it. You don’t piss off Mama O. You piss off Mama O, you will not survive.

I know that this as serious as the other four but I honestly think that Oprah is going to come out and say “Hey, I’m going to run against Trump.” I feel like that’s going to be her next move. It’s 2019 and the 2020 Election will literally be right around the corner. I’m here for Mama O to be president. We need someone like her in the white house.

I hope all of these things happen in 2019. Here’s to it being better than 2018! It has to be better than 2018.

The things that I have learned from Degrassi

Whatever it takes

While we haven’t had a new Degrassi episode since July 2017, people have been holding onto hope that the show will live on. But unfortunately. that isn’t the case as it appears that it has been cancelled by Netflix. In honor of all 18 seasons that we have grew up watch, I thought it was time to reminisce on things that I have learned from “Degrassi: The Next Generation” and “Degrassi: Next Class.” Here’s are those things:

Click Here to read my rant on Degrassi

Never trust a guy giving out jelly bracelets

If you meet people in the woods, you know it’s only going to be trouble

While if you meet someone in this day and age giving out jelly bracelets, you should just run because that’s creepy. You should run either way because that means he’s expecting you to do sexual acts. And I’m sorry but if you are collecting jelly bracelets from him, your ass is a hoe and you need Jesus. It made me think differently of people of them. I almost asked someone “hey, who did you blow?” As an Adult, I’m both sadden by the fact that I didn’t but yet glad that I didn’t. 

When in doubt, kiss the nearest person to you

Don’t lie…you were jealous

The saying on the show was “When in doubt, kiss Craig.” While Craig was a brooding drug induced hunky musician, the kiss that him and openly gay trendsetter Marco shared was short but iconic. So if you are stuck between a hunk and hunk, just kiss the nearest hunk near you. This works so well if you are having relationships issues. Just ask Marco!

Best way for revenge is to write a song and perform in front of them

Screw Downtown Squash, PMS/Hell Hath No Fury was the only band we needed and deserved

Why just personally tell someone off in the privacy when you can write songs about them and how they did you wrong in front of EVERYONE. Degrassi was Taylor Swift before she even knew about Tim McGraw. There was so many good bops that Degrassi gave us. Paige tell her rapist off, Ashley telling Craig off, Craig being a little bitch and just telling everyone off in his album. Memories, sweet memories. In case you haven’t noticed, the newer scenes aren’t really that memorable compared to the OG seasons of “Degrassi: The Next Generation.” They aren’t bad but they weren’t anything like Manny’s thong good. That scene is iconic.

You need to pay attention in Sex ed

In my school, I didn’t have any sex ed classes besides a health where they talked about it for a split second. But Degrassi taught me that if you really need to pay attention in when they teach you about sex in school. Not a lot people on Degrassi knew that you need to wrap it before you trap it. There was a concerning amount of teen pregnancy. Now I’m not here to mock teen pregnancy. I do think that “16 & Pregnant” made it seem “cool.” But there was just too many babies popping out and strolling down the hallow halls of Degrassi Community School. Then there was STD outbreaks like there wasn’t anyone business. Sex ed classes either didn’t teach anything or they didn’t teach enough. It also could be that the teens were too horny to pay attention. 

Started from the bottom now Drake is here

Has Drake always been cool? Yep.

During my revisit of the lessons that Degrassi taught me, I had a moment of clarity when it dawned on me what Drake meant when he said “Started from the bottom now we’re here.” When Drake, he was Jimmy Brooks, was shot down by Rick, he was just lying on the floor unconscious. THE BOTTOM OF THE FLOOR. He then rose up from that floor, metaphorically because Jimmy Brooks was wheelchair bound for most of the series after that. Jimmy Brooks didn’t let the fact that he couldn’t walk stop him from rapping and being Drake. So the lyrics are truly about rising out of your metaphorically wheelchair and just live your life. 

 

I hope that this bit of knowledge that I learned from this iconic show will help you. If Degrassi taught you something, leave it in the comments below so we can all enjoy in what lessons Degrassi taught the world.
