Internet users dig cringeworthy songs
Do you ever find pimplepopping and blackheadpulling videos on your Facebook timeline? Does an unexplained, irrational need to click on it take over you? You know it will be horrible, you know it will make you feel nauseous, yet there is a weird satisfaction to it.
A similar feeling is felt when you listen to cringeworthy songs. Case in point? Songbird Dhinchak Pooja. Her song Selfie Maine Leli Aaj has raked in 10 million views. And the views are only exploding everyday.
Here’s a look at equally cringeworthy songs that once caressed your ears: 1. The Delhi Metro Song (Hamra Delhi Ke Metro Ghuma De): A tribute to the lifeline of Delhi. 2. It’s My Life: The very good bad boy in a thousand adjective tells you what all he can be. 3. Mere Husband Mujhko Piyar Nahi Karte: Sunil Grover did his best to cash in on Rinku Bhabhi but managed to ruin ‘Mera Toh Jindagi Hi Kharab Ho Giya’. 4. Eye To Eye: This is a classic by Pakistani YouTube sensation Taher Shah. 5. Friday: One of the first songs in the bizarre domain, it’s by Rebecca Black.
