This year, Groundhog Day is February 2, 2023! Today in Punxsutawney, PA, a very important groundhog named Punxsutawney Phil appeared from his burrow to provide his annual weather forecast, where if Phil sees his shadow, we have to endure the bitter chill of winter for six more weeks, and if a cloudy sky forbids Phil a shadow, we can expect the spring sun to arrive earlier this year.

Unfortunately for most, this year Phil saw his shadow.

However, since the film Groundhog Day was released in 1993, the holiday is less associated with seasonal change as it is with the narrative of being stuck in a loop and repeating the same day again and again. So, in honor of this special day, we’ve compiled a list of songs that you can listen to over and over and over and over and over (you get the drift) again!

“Anti-Hero” — Taylor Swift (2022)

Honestly, we could’ve picked any song from Taylor Swift’s latest record-breaking, chart-dominating, pop culture-defining album, Midnights, to listen to on repeat. But the lead single, “Anti-Hero,” set the tone for Taylor’s tenth album. Its retro synths and introspective lyrics prepared us for a journey through bittersweet bops that would have us dancing and crying all at the same time. And, yes, maybe we’re hoping that after our one thousandth listen, we’ll finally wrap our heads around the line, “Did you hear my covert narcissism I disguise as altruism, like some kind of congressman?”

For more pop than you can handle, head on over to Hits 1 (Ch. 2).

“Best Of You” — Foo Fighters (2005)

We’ve got a confession to make: We’ve listened to this song way too many times. We can’t resist replaying this rock anthem every time the last chord is struck. Dave Grohl himself might’ve been stuck in a similar loop when singing the line, “Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?” It’s his passionate vocal performance that has been essential to the song’s success. How could anyone not shout at the top of their lungs alongside this legendary frontman? Yeah, this song definitely got the best of us.

Listen to more of Foo Fighters and their influences on Spectrum (Ch. 28), where classic rock meets new rock.

“OMG” — NewJeans (2023)

Like its predecessors “Hype Boy,” “Attention,” and “Ditto,” the latest single from NewJeans (K-Pop’s coolest group on the scene) “OMG” is all over TikTok. Naturally, it’s also been on constant replay in our heads since its release. “OMG” stays loyal to the band’s characteristic style of simple production and laid-back, breezy vocals. These traits have allowed the group to stand out in an industry that favors a maximalist approach, while fans can easily sing along to their favorite songs without straining their vocal cords. However, the accompanying dance to “OMG” still follows K-Pop’s expected level of difficulty (i.e., very difficult). Luckily, if the complex choreography is too tricky to follow, we can always revert to head-bopping.

“Seven Nation Army” — The White Stripes (2003)

Once you’ve heard it, it’s difficult to get the simple yet addictive guitar riff of this signature song from The White Stripes out of your head. Initially envisioned as a James Bond theme by Jack White, he instead included it in the Detroit duo’s fourth studio album, Elephant, after deciding they had little chance of such an opportunity coming their way at the time. As a result, the success of the song and album launched the band to an extreme level of fame and accolade. Interestingly, sports fans around the world have claimed “Seven Nation Army” as their anthem. You can’t watch or attend any game without hearing the crowd enthusiastically chant along to it — not even a seven nation army could hold them back.

Expand your rock ‘n’ roll vocabulary with classic and contemporary tracks on Underground Garage (Ch. 21).

“Time” — Hans Zimmer (2010)

Like most Christopher Nolan films, Inception demands countless rewatches. And with every rewatch, Hans Zimmer’s epic brass-heavy soundtrack for this dream-heist movie seeps further and further into our subconscious. In particular, the track “Time,” played over the movie’s dramatic end scene, has left a strong impression on movie lovers with its slow crescendo and sweeping strings. Whether you’re in the mood for some cinematic daydreaming, or maybe you need to concentrate on an impending writing deadline (totally not calling ourselves out here), a 10-hour loop of Hans Zimmer’s magnum opus will do wonders.
