12 Best Pop Songs With Indiscernible Lyrics

We all have that one song we can’t help sing along to when it comes on the radio or our playlists, but what if the lyrics of your favorite song aren’t actual words? You know, you start singing “lalalala” for a full minute, bopping your head along to the song only to realize you haven’t actually been singing anything.

This playlist is a celebration of those songs that take non-words and turn them into a vital part of our shower solos or our car ballads. We start with the catchiest of the silly sounds song, “Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga, which is followed by the impressive vocals of Joe Jonas in “Cake By The Ocean.” The list moves through some old favorites like Hanson’s “MmmBop” and the Spice Girls’ “Spice Up Your Life.” Finally, we get to “King” by Years and Years before finishing out with Britney Spears’ “Seal It with a Kiss.”

We hope this playlist lifts you out of the Monday blues. Let us know what song you like to sing along with even if it means swaying to beat saying “na-na-na-na” every time the chorus comes on.

Eric is a proud member of a very extended family--one that doesn’t always understand what he’s up to these days, but supports him anyway.He graduated from his Houston high school with a diploma and an Associate’s degree (impressive, right?), graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in three years, and just completed a two-year master’s program at New Mexico Highlands University, where he wrote a creative writing thesis on the evolution of literary vampires.Shockingly, he has not been able to find a steady job with this knowledge.Eric likes to write fiction and is currently waiting to hear back from publishers about a manuscript he sent in.When he’s not writing about fake things, Eric enjoys talking about the elusive concept of Mexicanidad and what it means to be Mexican American in the United States.He is currently working on a memoir of sorts on his blog he is not reading or writing, Eric spends his time avoiding small children.He does not always succeed.
