If you're like most people, your camera roll is full of pictures that you no longer need. But getting rid of them can be tough, especially if they hold sentimental value. However, there are some pictures that you should get rid of for good. Emotionally charged pictures of yourself (such as those taken during a break-up or after a difficult time in your life) can actually hinder your ability to move on. Similarly, pictures that are reminder of negative experiences (such as a bad day at work or an argument with a friend) can also drag you down. So if you're looking to declutter your life and boost your mood, getting rid of emotionally charged pictures is a good place to start. James Blunt's "You're Beautiful" is a perfect example of a song that can lift your spirits and help you forget your troubles. So next time you're feeling down, put on some James Blunt and sing your troubles away.

A mullet-topped and mustachioed Steve Perry is not an image that you can easily get out of your head, like it or not. That keyboard riff though... So good. Despite its dated visuals, "Faithfully" remains an essential part of Journey's catalog and is still a favorite among fans.
