Songs With Minimal Lyrics and Maximum Catchiness
New Year's may have been a couple days ago, but let's be honest: you probably still have a lingering headache after partying too hard. That's okay, we've got you covered with our Songs To Help You Keep Your New Year's Resolutions, Eight Songs for Your Walk of Shame, and now 10 Simple, Yet Catchy Songs.
After all, who needs complex lyrics when you have hilarious themes or a good beat?
Duck Sauce- Barbra Streisand This music video is just as fun as the song itself. Be on the look out for cameos from Kanye West, The Roots, and Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend. You'll probably still have this song stuck in your head next week.
Boys Noize- & Down When it comes to electro, sometimes all you need is a greeting and a reminder to "dance, dance, dance." No wonder the pre-zombified roommate in Shaun of the Dead got so irritated by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost blasting their tunes.Boys Noize - & Down by Cookiesrecords
Sleigh Bells- A/B Machines Hey Alexis Krauss, where do you keep your A machines? What about your B machines? The singer's being quite ambiguous.
Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins- Run Devil Run Rilo Kiley frontwoman Jenny Lewis goes a capella for the opening track of Rabbit Fur Coat.
Descendents- I Like Food It only takes Milo Aukerman 15 seconds to explain why he likes food. He's also quite fond of Wienerschnitzel.18) Descendents - I Like Food by KreepCloud
Bouncing Souls- I Like Your Mom "I want to marry her and be your dad" is probably the last thing you want to hear from your mom's creepy boyfriend.
Blink-182- Family Reunion An ode to the late George Carlin.
Dead Milkmen- Bitchin' Camaro "Uh, uh, what kinda car do you got?" "I've got a bitchin' Camaro!" The kids spit and cuss because they're jealous.Bitchin' Camaro - The Dead Milkmen by dotheblitz
Reverend Horton Heat- Psychobilly Freakout "Reverend" Jim Heath's fast guitar licks speak for themselves.Reverend Horton Heat - Psychobilly by subpop
