5 Best Hangover Songs
Music comes in all different forms and talk about all kinds of topics. It isn’t unusual to hear songs about drinking, using drugs and partying either because many musicians are living that kind of lifestyle. A hangover is almost universally relatable because almost everyone has had a drink and nearly every high school student, college student or adult has had a moment where they drank way too much.
That is why we made the 5 best hangover songs that include some of our favorite songs of all time. Who doesn’t like a song that reminds them of that crazy night with their friends? Okay maybe not all of us remember but we do like to relate. Hangovers bring all drinkers together in a common bond of headaches, puking and forgetting what they did the night before. The famous are not immune to it either. Check out our 5 best hangover songs and see if you can understand what they are talking about, if you have ever drank too much we are sure you can.
1. “Me and My Wine” – Def Leppard. Ah, the 80s metal bands sure knew a lot about drinking and partying and an equal amount as much about hangovers. It seems a lot of you can identify with lyrics like “Lying half dead on the floor, I don’t remember anything. What happened the night before?” We’d like to thank the British beer swigging musicians for giving us our first best hangover song of all time.
2. “Rude Awakenings” – Dropkick Murphy. Everyone has had a morning like this: “With equal surprise she opened her eyes, sat up and shouted ‘for Christ’s sakes who the hell are you?'” Not much more to say than this is one of the best hangover songs about one of the worst hangover situations.
3. “What Happened” – Sublime. “There’s no recollection of the evil things I’ve done. My head feels like I musta’ had some fun.” Sound familiar? Yep, that’s why Sublime’s “What Happened” is the third best hangover song of all time.
4. “My Own Worst Enemy” – Lit. Any song that starts (and ends) with, “Can we forget about the things I said when I was drunk? I didn’t mean to call you that. I can’t remember what was said or what you threw at me. Please tell me,” is incapable of eluding a best hangover songs list! Not surprisingly it’s in the top 5 at least.
5. “Margaritaville” – Jimmy Buffet. This is our best hangover song ever because anyone who’s ever had a hangover can identify with the great Jimmy Buffet when he sings, “But I know it’s my own damn fault.”
Doesn’t matter if its rock and roll, country, or reggae all musicians speak the universal hangover language. The 5 best hangover songs are also some of the greatest and most well-known songs in the world. Coincidence we think not. Drinking is a social and relatable experience. Just makes sure to take it easy. Maybe we should start taking these songs as a warning not a push to try to experience the songs ourselves.
