Let’s face it. Monday’s are terrible. Nobody likes them and anyone who says they do is a flat out liar.
This Monday is no exception. It’s cloudy, it’s early, its seriously lacking in fun. But instead of trying to stay positive and overcome the dread that is Monday, we here at Oake and Keri in the Morning think we should just lean into it. Enjoy the misery that is Monday and see just how miserable we can make ourselves.
Hence this list.
We have compiled the 13 songs that will rattle around on a loop inside your brain, terrorizing your mind, and making it impossible to focus on anything productive. They will make you more irritable, more cranky, and may even cause you to throw a stapler at Tina in HR.
Why? Because sometimes you just have to make a bad day worse. That’s why.
13. Thank You – Dido
Thank you for ruining my day Dido. This song was sampled by Eminem for his song “Stan” so it had two avenues into our consciousness. Yayyyyyyyyy…….
12. Kiss Me – Sixpence None The Richer
This song takes me back to 6th grade hanging out at the roller rink and will give help you drum up the courage to make a move on that special someone…..Or vomit.
11. Waterfalls – TLC
Gotta love a chorus that repeats over and over and over into infinity. R.I.P. Left Eye
10. 500 Miles – The Proclaimers
This song will drive you insane if you let it. Bring it on you cookie Scots!
9. Hey Soul Sister – Train
This song will have you hearing acoustic guitar strums in your sleep.
8. My Humps – Black Eyed Peas
This just makes me angry. Shout out to feminism!
7. Hollaback Girl – Gwen Stefani
The line you will be repeating is, “This is bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S”
That’s just good writing.
6. Rain Is A Good Thing – Luke Bryan
Brian Oake’s All-Time Favorite Song. In fact, please send the link to this video to his Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine, Four-Square, Tinder, Grinder, MySpace, and LinkedIn accounts as many times as you can. He’ll LOVE it.
5. Achy Breaky Heart – Billy Ray Cyrus
Bump BaDaDump. Bump BaDaDump, Bump Bump Bump BaDaDaDump.
That’s what will be stuck in your head after this one. Just that. No actual words.
4. Escape (The Pina Clada Song) – Rupert Holmes
You’ll need a drink or 6 after hearing this one.
3. Pocketful of Sunshine – Natasha Bedingfield
This song will make your day darker.
2. What’s New Pussycat – Tom Jones
Why does Tom want to know what’s up with this cat? Doesn’t he know cat’s can’t talk? Seems a little odd to devote a whole song trying to make small talk with a feline. Maybe do something more productive with your time Tom and stop terrorizing the rest of us. Geez!
1. Blue – Eiffel 65
I’m Blue DaBa De, Daba Da, Daba DE, Daba Da, Daba De Daba Dah.
Good luck with the rest of your day with that looping through your cerebellum.
There you go. Don’t you just feel ALIVE! We collectively stared Monday in the face and shouted, “You ain’t got nothin’ on me, Monday!”
I’m proud of all of us.
