Playlist: Top 10 throwback Radio Disney jams

If you’re a student at UNC, you’re probably really stressed right now.

Between approaching midterms, avenging our loss against Dook this Saturday, and trying to solidify plans for #SpringBreak2k16, my heart aches for simpler times.

Like when Silly Bandz were cool and "Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide" was your bible (still waiting for the college edition.)

But also when Radio Disney had some bangin’ tunes.

In the spirit of nostalgia (and High School Musical getting a reboot), here’s a definitive ranking of the Top Ten Throwback Radio Disney jams you forgot you were obsessed with (or you’re still obsessed with) to get you through this week:

#10: Jordan Pruitt, “Outside Looking In” (2006)

#9: Vanessa Hudgens, “Sneakernight” (2008) 

#8: Hilary Duff, “Wake Up” (2005)

#7: JoJo, “Too Little, Too Late” (2006)

#6: Aly & AJ, “Potential Breakup Song” (2007)

#5: Demi Lovato, “Here We Go Again” (2009)

#4: Jesse McCartney, “Beautiful Soul” (2004)

#3: Jonas Brothers, “Burnin Up” (2008)

#2: Miley Cyrus, “The Climb” (2009)
