20 Songs You’ve Definitely Embarrassed Yourself To at Uni
This is something new, the Casper slide part two, featuring the platinum band, AND THIS TIME WE’RE GONNA GET FUNdamentally wasted and honestly make just the worst decisions.
1. Total Eclipse of the Heart
I mean sure, you may say you’re only really into the indi-rock scene, but we all saw you belt this out with more raw emotion than you’ve ever exhibited in your life.
It was all fun and games when you started the dance, but now you’re three minutes in, trapped with no end in sight, and suddenly realising just how long this damn song is.
3. All About That Bass
You adamantly hated this song and made that known. And then you got drunk and somehow you knew all the words??
4. The Circle of Life
Okay, but come on, we’ve all had an overly passionate kitchen singalong to a spot o’ Disney (the worst part is you probably weren’t even drunk for this one).
5. I’ll Be There For You
Alternative Title: The One Where The Second Verse Starts And Everyone’s Singing Suddenly Becomes A Lot More Quiet and Mumbly.
You don’t know the lyrics. We all know you don’t know the lyrics, no matter how much you vaguely mouth along to it.
7. Hips Don’t Lie
Unless of course they were the ones that told you that your current hip-thrusting was sexy and exotic, and not just generally off-putting.
8. The Game of Thrones Theme
Yes, we could hear your singing along to it in your room. You know how thin the walls are in Halls.
9. Take On Me
That high note you attempted? Yeah. Maybe don’t do that again. (SEE ALSO: Grace Kelly and All I Want For Christmas Is You)
Flo Rida told you to get low. And you did. With gusto. But then getting back up again became the real challenge.
11. 5, 6, 7, 8
In middle school, knowing this dance was the coolest thing. And it still is. Well, except for the unfortunate onlookers, attempting to dodge your drunken routine in an overly cramped club.
12. Everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting
Alternative Title: Everybody Was Throwing Their Limbs In A Completely Not-Kung Fu And Kinda A Little Bit Offensive Way (nana nana na na na na na)
13. Bohemian Rhapsody
The number one song choice for drunken groups roaming the streets on their way to/from clubs. At least this one’s group embarrassment.
14. Single Ladies
Yes, Brad, you may be studying Sports Psychology, and yes, you may be on the Rugby and American Football teams, but when Beyoncé tells you to put your hands up, you sure as hell are gonna do it.
15. (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life
Turns out, if you can’t successfully do the lift whilst sober, you can’t do it whilst drunk either. Who knew?
This banger manages to sneak into both 90s and 00s nights, and you will never see a twenty-something look more happy than when their arms are shooting up to the stars (or more accurately, that sweaty, sweaty club ceiling).
Remember that one time they played the Spice Girls mega-mashup, which skips out Wannabe’s rap, and you were fURIOUS?!
18. Cha Cha Slide
Okay, so sure, the big question is always “what do you do for the charlie horse?”, but I think we’ve established that now. So we can move on to the more pressing question of when you reverse which way are you supposed to go?
Whilst this song is likely to be lost in the depths of music obscurity, sadly it overlapped with your time at uni. And because of this, there is now an unfortunate video of you over-enthusiastically slut-dropping to it.
20. Mambo No. 5
*sweats nervously whilst trying to remember which order the girls’ names come in*
So that’s it, however…
HONOURABLE MENTIONS: Livin’ On A Prayer, All Star, Call Me Maybe, and tbh pretty much the entirety of Taylor Swift’s discography.
