Don't let your home screen fall into a rut — switch out your wallpaper!

Wallpapers are important. They can give our phone a new feel, even if only for a little while. Some of us change wallpapers as often as we change shirts (sometimes to match), while some of us set one wallpaper and forget it, and that's a shame. A good wallpaper can be a pick-me-up, can remind us of better times (and upcoming times). They can show off what's important to us, be it a picture of the grandkids or an emblem of your favorite house in Game of Thrones. In an effort to brighten your screen, and maybe your day, we present an offering of wonderful wallpapers to grace your smartphone.

If you've got a wallpaper you use everywhere, share it in the comments below! We're always looking for something new. Now get your wallpaper picker ready and see what's in store this week.


No school like old-school

To all these high-def streaming options in the mobile market right now, we have one word for you: vinyl. Do you sound as good as vinyl? Are you gonna sound as good on those tiny, tinny speakers as vinyl? Nope, because there can only be one. So the next time Tidal comes asking for twenty bucks a month, look at this lovely wallpaper and go support your local record shop. Assuming the record shops in your town haven't been killed off already.

Ninyl Life

Disco Night

Disco hippie, you're the man!

Disco will never die. And why would we ever want it to? Disco was a ridiculous time with ridiculous music and ridiculous fashions, but I don't see a lot of places holding 90's nights. Instead, they're holding disco nights! Bring your far-out flares (oh, how I love flares) and your sequins, and prepare to have your mind blown!


Piano Bar Love

There will always be something romantic about the piano.

There's something romantic, nostalgic, and downright wistful about a well-played piano piece. It can drive you to tears at a concert, it can drive you to dance at a saloon (those still exist somewhere, right?), and it can drive you to love in bars, coffee shops and lounges the world over. If you haven't had your heart broken by a beautiful brunette with their hands on the ivories, you haven't lived, my friend!


Life sucks. Music doesn't.

Life sucks. Music doesn't. Nuff said.

I think that pretty much sums it up, actually. If a day's going great, I'll be singing in the hallways. If a day's gone south, don't tell me I need a drink - I need a Disney playlist. And this wallpaper can be a daily reminder to bring your headphones along and let music lift you up whenever life gets you down.


Magic in the Music

Miku's Musical Magic

Music brings me to life. Music is energy, it is power, it is magic. And this is probably as close as one gets to portraying what I see when I close my eyes and listen to my music. the world falls away and there's only me and the music, in all its wonderful colors and chords and cascades.

Also, Hatsune Miku is awesome.
