ULTIMATE PLAYLIST
https://open.spotify.com/user/shelbyribordy/playlist/6ugCQ2CPr7Ecc8u5YU9IoJ


I started this playlist with the idea that I was going to gather a list of 15 songs that mentioned the names or ideas of past-current presidents. As I did some research, I realized most of the songs were very old and nobody would know any of the songs. That would have made for a boring ULTIMATE PLAYLIST. So, I changed my topic to #1 hits during the years that certain presidents ran in hope that I would find some more popular songs. Included in this playlist is the #1 hits from JFK, LBJ, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, both Bush's, Clinton, Obama, and Trump mostly in that order. Since there are only a list of 11 presidents, I picked a few of the other popular songs during their presidency as well. I noticed that a lot of the songs were very mellow and somewhat sad such as End Of The Road by Boyz II Men and (Everything I Do) I Do It For You by Bryan Adams So I tried my best steer clear of that in hopes to keep the playlist up beat and fun.

Main Article: Anne Frank

Annelies Marie Frank, the girl that witnessed it all, was born on June 12, 1929. She lived in Frankfurt, Germany with her older sister, Margot, her father, Otto, and her mother, Edith Frank. Before the Holocaust, the Frank's lived a normal life; they had guests over to their house every Sunday for coffee and cake. At the beginning of the Holocaust, Mrs. Frank took Anne and Margot to live in Aachen while Otto went to Holland. At the beginning of being under German rule, life wasn't much different, but the punishment started to become more harsh as time went on. Anne began to write in detail a diary about her experience during the Holocaust and the things she saw. Anne Frank did not survive the holocaust but her diaries tell her whole story. Instead of letting the Nazis invade their home in 1933, the Frank family hid from the German army in a hidden part of warehouse. The family was kept alive by the workers of the factory who brought them their necessities. The Frank family along with the workers who helped them stay alive were caught and taken to a concentration camp. Anne Frank and her sister were taken to another concentration camp shortly after where they both died of Typhus fever. Edith did not survive the Holocaust either, she died because of starvation on January 6, 1945 in Auschwitz, a concentration camp in Poland. Otto was the only Frank to survive. Anne's diaries were found by Miep Gies, he gave them to Otto to have. After the war and after reading his daughters words, Otto decided to have Anne's diaries published where he then answered many peoples questions about her and the family. Otto died on August, 1980 in Birsfelden, Switzerland, not because of the Holocaust, but because he had Lung Cancer.

Main Article: Movies, Radios, and Sports in the 1920s
The 1920s were a decade of unprecedented prosperity which caused a rise of earnings to generate more disposable income. The new wealth fueled technological innovations which increased the popularity in entertainment such as movies, sports, and radio programs. The creatio of the "moving pictures" became popular and created a growth of movie "palaces" or theatres in large cities. Movies allowed Americans to escape their problems and lose themselves in another world. Charlie Chaplin was a sad-eyed mustache havin star of the 20s who captured the attention of the American viewing public nobody else could. Radios became a popular addition in American homes after World War I. Radios were am upgrade from print media; they were still able to display news and advertisements, but they could reach a larger audience through radios. The introduction of play-by-play descriptions over the radio changed the way Americans were able to enjoy sports. This lead to many popular sports superstars to become household names.

Main Article: H.H. Holmes
Herman Webster Mudgett, also known as Dr. Henry Howard Holmes, was an American serial killer during the late 19th century born in Gilmanton, New Hampshire. Some say that his early childhood consisted of being abused by his father as well as killing the animals on his family's farm. Holmes graduated high school, went on to college, and even got married and had kids just like any other man would have done. But, Holmes attended a med school where a became very familiar with the human body and even used cadavers for some research during college. After college it was seen that Holmes started to become violent with his wife Clara, so she moved back home and didn't hear a word from him after that. Some eye witnesses even say that Holmes was seen with a little boy who later went missing, Holmes claimed he knew nothing of the disappearance and the boy went back to his home state. In fear that they would investigate, he fled town to Chicago where he is now most famously known for his murders. He owned a building about 3 miles west of the Chicago World's Fair, which is now known as The Murder Hotel because this is where the murders occurred. It is commonly known that he killed over 200 people, but only confessed to the murder of 27. He may have killed his victims using the medication he got from working at a pharmacy. In the end of it all, H.H. Holmes got away with many many murders, but the one that ended it for him was a man by the name of Benjamin Pitezel. Holmes was arrested and eventually hung on May 7, 1896 for the murder of Pitezel.

Main Article: Georgia as a colony
Georgia was apart of the 13 original and it was founded in 1732 by multiple colonists, it was last colony to be founded. Georgia was named in honor of King George II. During the time, British prisons were overflowing with people in debt, so they used Georgia as the solution to this problem. Oglethorpe, one of the founders, had a lot of experience working with people in debt so he knew how to handle the situation properly. He wanted Georgia to be used as a new/fresh start for these debtors. This is not the only reason Georgia was founded..The northern colonies wanted protection from the Spanish down in Florida, so Georgia was used as a buffer between Florida and the northern colonies. The reason for founding Georgia then shifted from a place full of prisoners and debtors to a place full of skilled individuals. Colonists were sent to Georgia to train the debtors skills such as farming and tailoring. But, by time it became a Royal Colony in 1752, Georgia was again known for its plantations and slavery.
