Royal Earworm

So there’s this song that is a real earworm for me. Its catchy, its got a beet to it, and best of all, it is down to earth. As an >amateur musician, I am very picky about my jams. This song is off the chains.

What makes an earworm for me is simplicity. The lyrics need to be easy to remember, the music must be bouncing with syncopation, and the content of the song needs to be something that identifies with things that come to mind in an ordinary life. From this song, the second verse stands out.

My friends and I we’ve cracked the code.
We count our dollars on the train to the party.
And everyone who knows us knows,
That we’re fine with this, we didn’t come from money.

Now that I’ve hyped up the song, welcome to my new favorite earworm.
