Six Songs to Avoid When You're Hungover

Six Songs to Avoid When You're Hungover
Taylor Hamby

When you wake up with a hangover, every light gets a little brighter, every sound gets a little louder, and every person in your bed gets a little uglier. That's why you have to tread lightly after a night on the town. There are foods you eat and food you don't eat. There are things you drink, and things you don't drink.

And as any hungover person who has unknowingly turned on their car to a radio at full blast knows, there are songs you avoid. Go ahead and put these six on the list.

1. First Of The Year (Equinox) -- Skrillex

When you wake up after a long night of drinking, the last thing you want to hear is computers begging for their lives. I won't sit here and trash dubstep. If you like it, hey, that's great.

But please, please don't play this song within a hundred yards of anyone with a hangover. I'd rather run a marathon with sandals made of broken glass than have to listen to this song on repeat after a few too many whiskey sours.

Upcoming Events

2. Roar -- Katy Perry

Stop it, Katy! I don't want to hear you roar. I want to hear you say, "Oh my god, Ryan, you're so funny and awesome and yes I will marry you and of course you can have a yacht, and sure we can name it the Adrien Boaty."

Please write a new song that doesn't sound like Nancy Grace having a six minute orgasm. Because every time I wake up with the taste of beer in my mouth, I seem to hear this God-awful song on every single channel.

But for real, girl, if you're ever in town we should totally get a cup of coffee or something. Or, you know. Whatever.
