By  | 

Ok, so how awesome is it being a teen? Barely any responsibilities, tons of hot high school boys to lust over, and weekends to do nothin’ but chill with our BFFs. And we put that awesomeness of being young into a Playlist of the Week for ya! Pump up the volume on these youthful tunes by Taylor Swift, fun., and Katy Perry, and just be happy you’re not old like your parents.

1. fun., “We Are Young”
Embrace your youth by setting the world on fire. Wait, no, don’t actually set anything on fire. Please.

2. Katy Perry, “Teenage Dream”
Young love. Sigh. Is there anything sweeter?



3. One Republic, “Good Life”
Grab your besties and belt it out to living the dream, sista.

4. Wiz Khalifa, “Young, Wild, and Free”
Having fun and don’t care who sees? Good! Then we think you’ve found your new life anthem.

5. Jay-Z, “Young Forever”
Ok fine, it’s impossible to be young forever (unless you’re Edward Cullen or Bella Swan). But with this song, it’s totally cool to pretend.



6. Boys Like Girls, “The Great Escape”
Honor the nights you’ve felt invincible with this oldie-but-goodie.

7. Natasha Bedingfield, “Unwritten”
Let’s face it, life’s short. But don’t fret, you have so much to look forward to! Dream of what’s to come as this song plays in the background. Or just reminisce about The Hills. Either one works.

8. The Naked and Famous, “Young Blood”
Just like they do in the video, this song makes us want to lay in the flowers, jump on cars, and swim with our clothes on. After all, #YOLO.



9. Travie McCoy, “We’ll Be Alright”
Celebrate your liberated, fresh-faced self with this upbeat party tune.

10. Taylor Swift, “Fifteen”
Remember how nervous you were on the first day of school? Taylor’s been there, you guys! It’s so weird how that girl just totally gets us.
