The Most LSS-inducing Songs
You’ve been warned
Songs are funny. They can be incredibly great or they can be incredibly frustrating. It’s always nice to have a song to listen to during your downtime—or even during work if you’re more productive that way—but when they get stuck in our heads, they become a black hole for focus.
If you want to turn back, now is the time to do so. You’ve been properly warned.
How Far I’ll Go, Moana
Despite only being in our musical radars for a couple of months, How Far I’ll Go always seems to make it into our weekly playlists. The tune is catchy, the lyrics are inviting and we’re incredibly well versed in just how effective it is.
Our favorite lines: See the line where the sky meets the sea?/ It calls me/ And no one knows/ How far I’ll go
Despacito, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber
This song has been making the rounds the past few days and we understand why. It’s upbeat, it’s fun and annoyingly memorable.
Our favorite lines: Despacito/ Quiero respirar tu cuello despacito/ Deja que te diga cosas al oido/ para que te acuerdes si no estas conmigo
(Although we’re fairly certain you usually mumble some mumbo jumbo)
All Night, The Vamps
Whether you’re into the original or acoustic version, chances are this song has a soft spot in your heart. Your ears are used to those opening chords and your lips are moving on muscle memory at this point. Not that we blame you, of course.
Our favorite lines: I’ve been up all night/ No sleep/ Cause it feels like I’m always dreaming/ All night/ No sleepy/ Cause it feels like I’m always dreaming
I Luv It, Psy
Psy has a knack for creating these incredibly viral songs that ultimately get stuck in our heads for one reason or another—and his recent release is no exception.
Our favorite lines: Gisulbodaneun yesuli I luv it/ sillyeokbodaneun maeryeoki I luv it / pumgyeokbodaneun pagyeoki I luv it
(You’re saying gibberish again, we’re sure)
22, Taylor Swift
We may not be 22 anymore, but we haven’t grown out of singing along to one of Taylor Swift’s classics. The whimsical music video adds to the entire experience, but we don’t need any of that to get jumping and singing along.
Our favorite lines: We’re happy, free, confused and lonely at the same time/ It’s miserable and magical at the same time
Good luck getting to sleep without one of these songs playing in your head. Or you can head over to Spotify and embrace the evil genius behind the tracks instead.
