Welcome back, readers, to The SB Mixtape! Like the last playlist, this one is more personal than usual, but for a less life-changing reason: in three weeks, I’m turning 21! As an American, 21 is the age of complete freedom. At 21, there is no way to put me under the authority of anyone else; no category which keeps me as a minor. My life is mine and no one else’s.

And honestly, it’s the cherry on top of a great month — finals are over, aced most of my classes, I’m back with my furbaby, my OTP is finally together, life is good. And when life is good, I feel the need to celebrate by pumping up the music and dancing into the night.

Shut Up And Dance from seoulbeats on 8tracks Radio.

And if this isn’t enough dance for you, check out the namesake “Shut Up And Dance” by Walk The Moon. Any songs that you felt were missing, readers? Put them in the comments!
