Songs about normal life

I like to listen to Jay-Z and Kanye West, because my life is nothing like theirs.  The closest I will get to a Ferrari is renting a BMW, and the closest I will get to being Kim Kardashian is reading Yerevan Magazine.   But sometimes, you don’t want to listen to songs that say “My furs is Mongolian/ my ice brought the goalies in,” no matter how much rhetorical talent Kanye admittedly has. Sometimes you don’t want to be reminded that Kanye’s single Jesus piece is the cost of your MBA.  That sometimes is usually when you’re paying your semester tuition bill.

Sometimes you just want to listen to songs about people like you, which is why Thrift Shop is so popular right now. America has been on a Cristal hangover since 2008, and we somehow can’t seem to get over it, no matter how many glasses of water we drink or how much Pepto Bismol we take.  We’ve woken up to find our wallet empty and our hand in a Wendy’s drivethrough bag (mmmm Frosty). We need a lot of energy to get through that Sunday, and we need support from our musicians.

Here they are (most have NSFW lyrics because, they, they are rap songs):

Everyday Normal Guy

My Volvo

Drink in My Hand


Whatever You Like

This is why I brunch

And, of course:

Any that I missed?
