A roundup of 42 songs you definitely thought were soooo deep when you were younger
What would you do if your son was at home, crying all alone on the bedroom floor ’cause he’s hungry?

PastedImage-39382 Every time one of these songs came on, you looked like this.

WE ALL HAVE at least one song that we took way too seriously when we were children. You know, one of those songs that would come on the radio when you were in the car at nighttime and you’d look out the window and pretend you were in a film. One of those songs. If you can’t admit to doing that, you probably take yourself too seriously. 

After I got home from work one night and found myself whistling What If God Was One of Us while preparing a sandwich for myself, I thought of how much I loved that song as a kid (but how silly the content of that song is now, in hindsight) and I decided to ask my friends and followers on Instagram what their equivalent was.

Little did I know, they were going to help me build the greatest playlist ever. Here’s a list of the best responses I received:
