Currrent Favorite Earworm - The Kids Are All Dying by Finneas

My current favorite earworm is The Kids Are All Dying by Finneas.

The lyrics are catchy, the meaning is deep and the video fun. It looks like they did it in one take. Rented a location, had 3 minutes to do the video and got it done complete with Finneas missing the glass one time and a bloody finger.

Plus...I can't listen to the first two words without hearing South Park Fingerbang

Bang! Bang!
Knocking on my door
“Do you have a dollar?
Would you like to fund a war?
What’s your carbon footprint
And could you be doing more?”
I tried saving the world
But then I got bored

Ka-ching-ching
What you wanna do?
Make a lotta money
Buy a house in Malibu
Show me if it’s funny
If it’s not, you don’t need to
I tried picking a cause
But I got confused

How can you sing about love when the kids are all dying?
How can you sing about drugs? Politicians are lying!
How can you sing about sex when the school is on lockdown? Lockdown!
Now, baby, maybe we’re next
Maybe we’re next

So shut up! The internet is mad
They say you’re problematic and you’d better take it back
There’s nothing you can do that people won’t misunderstand
They won’t feel any better till you feel bad

And good God! We never catch a break
Whatever’s on the news, the other side’ll call it fake
I wish I was the Queen, I’d tell ’em all to eat their cake
Maybe humankind was just God’s mistake

How can you sing about love when the kids are all dying?
How can you sing about drugs? Politicians are lying!
How can you sing about sex when the school is on lockdown? Lockdown!
Now, baby, maybe we’re next
Maybe we’re next

I know my pool is heated
Business class is where I’m seated
And I’m whiter than the ivory on these keys
I think too much about myself
Drink my wallet and drive my wealth
But enough about me

Bang! Bang!
Knocking on my door
“Do you have a dollar?
Would you like to fund a war?
What’s your carbon footprint
And could you be doing more?”
I tried saving the world
But then I got bored
