1. "My Humps" by the Black Eyed Peas

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ "Scandalous." This was the song that scandalized your parents, so it felt extra risqué when this song — albeit the edited version — came on at school dances.

2. "Since U Been Gone" by Kelly Clarkson

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ Vengeful. This was the song where you made out with some rando while you eyed the person you were REALLY crushing on out of the corner of your eye, wishing you were macking it with them.

3. "1, 2 Step" by Ciara feat. Missy Elliott

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ Awkward. I mean, the rhythm isn't really conducive to making out but you tried anyway. Also, you kind of had to pick either the coordinated dance OR making out, because both just didn't work.

4. "Gold Digger" by Kanye West feat. Jamie Foxx

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ Rowdy. I mean, this song is a BANGER and the sledgehammer beat probably contributed to the already boppin' middle school vibes.

5. "Don't Cha" by The Pussycat Dolls

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ Sassy. I mean, the lyrics say it all: "Don't cha wish your girlfriend was hot like me?" Indeed, Pussycat Dolls. IN-FUCKING-DEED.

6. "Cool" by Gwen Stefani

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ Wistful. Looking back, those "feelings" you felt during middle school were actually just raging hormones, but at the time, if you were feeling ~moody~ then this underrated Gwen Stefani jam was the perfect makeout anthem.

7. "Pon De Replay" by Rihanna

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ Gosh darn fun. Before the eternally delayed album, Rihanna dropped fucking fun music on a nonstop basis — and the genesis of this was "Pon De Replay." Perfect grinding-that-lead-to-making-out song.

8. "Candy Shop" by 50 Cent feat. Olivia

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ VERY INAPPROPRIATE. All this sugary innuendo ruined lollipops for you forever. This was the song that when it immediately came on, the dance chaperone tried to get the DJ to skip to the next song immediately.

9. "La Tortura" by Shakira feat. Alejandro Sanz

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ Flirty. You may not have understood what Shakira was singing, but good music is good music. And come on, it's Shakira. OF COURSE you wanted to make out to this song.

10. "Sugar, We're Going Down" by Fall Out Boy

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ Flailing (if that even is a makeout style, but you know what I'm talking about). This was the perfect makeout anthem for your angsty emo middle school self.

11. "Milkshake" by Kelis

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ Hot-n-heavy. If you weren't singing along to the hella catchy lyrics ("My milkshakes bring all the boys to the yard...") then you definitely were making out to Kelis' big hit.

12. "Hung Up" by Madonna

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ Deliberately. This song builds...and builds...so you had plenty of time to make eye contact with your crush before you went in for the kill. And then there was saliva EVERYWHERE.

13. "Naughty Girl" by Beyoncé

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ Booty poppin'. You would grind, then turn around and make out with your crush, and then rinse and repeat. Lots of sweating. Lots of mackin' it. Thanks, Bey.

14. "Beverly Hills" by Weezer

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ Bizarrely. Is this song conducive to making out. NOT REALLY. But come hell or high water, this song was GOING to be played at your middle school dance. So yup, you made out to it.

15. "Gasolina" by Daddy Yankee

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ Aggressively. This song goes HARD, so your makeout style had to match. You probably bruised your face — and your partner's — in the process. Oh well.

16. "Holiday" by Green Day

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ Emo-ly (pretend that's a word). More time to be an angsty youth, more time to make out. Don't you miss middle school dances? OK, maybe not.

17. "Drop It Like It's Hot" by Snoop Dogg feat. Pharrell

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ Sweatily. This is a total, 100%, certifiable grinding anthem, so you worked up a SOLID sweat before you even went in for the makeout with your crush. God bless Snoop and Pharrell.

18. "Mr. Brightside" by The Killers

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ Earnestly. This was the song where you didn't just make out with some rando for the sole purpose of getting some sweaty middle school action. You found your boo for this one, and then you went to town.

19. "You're Beautiful" by James Blunt

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ Bad. Unlike "Mr. Brightside" this song SEEMS like it is loaded with good intentions. "Wow," you said to your middle school self, "this song sounds like it has FEELINGS because it is slow." So you made out with someone you thought you had a crush on. But in reality, it was just the hormones talking.

20. "Lose My Breath" by Destiny's Child

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ Athletic. The insane beat meant that you had to be grinding during this song, so tangled limbs ensued. But we'll forgive you, because it's Destiny's Child. If anyone is worthy of you nearly getting sent to the ER during a middle school dance, it's Beyoncé, Kelly, and the other girl.

21. "Toxic" by Britney Spears

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ Gayly. This was the song where all the gays (can I get an amen!) WISH they were macking it with their crushes on the dance floor, but they couldn't because it was 2005 and that shit just wasn't gonna fly. Oh well, you'd be 21 at a gay bar soon enough.

22. "Let Me Love You" by Mario

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ Groovily. This song is like, the ultimate 2005 makeout anthem. This was what hall of fame middle school makeouts were made of. Can we get a round of applause for Mario, please and thank you?

23. "Yeah!" by Usher feat. Ludacris and Lil Jon

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ Crazily. This song was the SHIT! As soon as it came on, you and your crew BOLTED to the dance floor, and before Lil Jon could scream "OHHHHHKAYYYYYY!" you suddenly were making out with your middle school crush from your English class who you never even talked to.

24. "We Belong Together" by Mariah Carey

~*~MaKeOuT sTyLe~*~ Slowly. This song was engineered in a lab to accompany awkward, sweaty middle school makeouts, and for that, we salute you, Mimi!
