While grocery shopping the other day, we heard one of the lamest songs ever recorded – “Truly Madly Deeply” by Savage Garden. And while we sat there reaching for some beer, our buddy called us out asking, “Dude. Are you seriously humming this song right now?”
We’ve all been there before, and unfortunately, our most recent time occurred in front of a giant bro who wouldn’t let us forget what we did. Guess it could have been worse. It could have happened with a smokin’ hot girl next to us. Or maybe even worse, up on a karaoke stage in front of a bar full of people.
Since you just can’t help yourself, here are the songs you’ll embarrassingly hum at some point in your life. They’re just so damn catchy.
“My Heart Will Go On” – Celine Dion
It’s almost impossible not to think about the classic scene from Titanic every time you hear this song. Problem is, the damn thing’s miserable, and immediately brings us back to seventh grade when we had an unplanned boner while at a middle school dance. Since that’s no joke, either is ever knowing the words or tune of this song. Celine Dion is just absolutely miserable.
“Hero” – Enrique Iglesias
This is lame, but we admit this is one of the catchier tunes you can find yourself humming. We’re not sure if it’s because it brings back memories of ex-high school girlfriends, or how hot Jennifer Love Hewitt looked in the video, but whatever it is, you just can’t help yourself. Suffice to say, it’s not exactly the most complex of lyrics, so one can kind of understand it being stuck in your head.
“I Want it That Way” – Backstreet Boys
Remember how big that damn boy band craze was? Jesus, it was like world domination. Unfortunately, as bad as it was then, it’s sad to say that those memories never actually went away, because each and every word is still fresh in your mind. This just happens to be the worst, so whenever you hear it, be prepared to hate yourself a little bit more for humming along. Hopefully there isn’t anyone nearby to make fun of you for doing so… even though they’re probably doing the same thing.
“Livin’ La Vida Loca” – Ricky Martin
Much like the boy band effect, for some reason the 2000′s gave us a Hispanic takeover, with artists like the previously mentioned Iglesias, Jennifer Lopez (another terrible song), and Ricky Martin. Dude had some serious moves with the ladies – well, till he came out in 2010 – and don’t tell us you didn’t practice all those dances in front of your mirror. Upside, inside, out, you’ll always be living la vida loca.
“I Saw The Sign” – Ace of Base
Thanks to our older sister overplaying the hell out of this song, we can’t help but think of our third grade Spring Break every time we hear this crap. Sure, Ace of Base got pretty big back in the day, but for no reason whatsoever should you still know each and every word. It seems to be impossible though, so you might as well try to embrace it.
