Just like the dudes in The Hangover II, If you are of legal drinking age and you have a fondness for partying, you know what Memorial Day weekend means beyond pools and baby-back ribs: booze. Lots of booze. And drank on Sunday because you don’t have to work! Yay!
Except…the next day is always less than yay, especially when you are dealing with the irony of not remembering Memorial Day. Hey, remember it’s Memorial Day.
Well, you aren’t alone. Plenty of pop stars like [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kanye West[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Katy Perry[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kelly Rowland[/lastfm] have been waking up with a pounding headache and in the wrong bed.
10. “Hangover”-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kelly Rowland[/lastfm]
Wow, really, I could have written this exact same song and I’m pretty sure a lot of you can sympathize with Kelly Rowland in her song “Hangover.” This is the perfect “walk of shame” tune:
Woke up with a headache with you right next to me/It’s sad to say I really can’t remember a thing/I’m already regretting what I don’t know we did/It wouldn’t be that bad if I could remember it.
9. “Love Hangover”-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jason Derulo[/lastfm]
Thinking about it, having a “Love Hangover” with Jason Derulo wouldn’t be that bad. And his description of what happens after certain multiples of drinks is pretty spot on:
One drink turned into two drinks/Three drinks turned into dancin’ (dancin’)/And pretty soon her body was all upon me/Then I woke up I saw her layin’ next to me
A whole entire woman made of alcohol! No wonder you’re hungover from “Ms. Hangover,” Flo-Rida:
She had Hennessy hips, and Belve’ eyes/Grey Goose on her lips, and cognac thighs/I’m hungover (hungover) from Ms. Hangover (Hangover)/She had a bubble like Cris’, Patron all night/Had one mo’ sip, too drunk to drive/I’m hungover (hungover) from Ms. Hangover (Hangover)
7. “Tipsy”-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]J-Kwon[/lastfm]
OK, so people aren’t exactly hungover in J-Kwon’s party anthem “Tipsy,” but after a night on the town with him, if they don’t wake up hungover then they are doing it all wrong.
6. “I Am Not Drunk”-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Benny Benassi[/lastfm]
We all have one of these (usually girl) friends. We say, “Hey, Darla. Maybe you should put that drink down. I think you’ve had enough.” She stares you in the eyes intensely, grabs the drinks out of your hand, falls into you and screams, “I Am Not Drunk!”
Yes, you are. And you will be massively hungover the next day. Trust.
5. “Blame It”-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jamie Foxx[/lastfm] (featuring [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]T. Pain[/lastfm])
When you’re friend Darla wakes up the next morning begging for a breakfast burrito and seventeen aspirin, she is definitely going to “Blame it on the alcohol” –not her poor willpower:
Blame it on the vodka/blame it on the henny/Blame it on the blue tap, got you feeling dizzy/Blame it on the a-a-alcohol
4. “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)”-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Katy Perry[/lastfm]
According to the Katy Perry camp, Katy Perry’s next video is for “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)”–and considering I have been in about 75% of the situations she’s been through (not telling which ones), I can’t wait to see what Perry comes up with:
There’s a stranger in my bed/There’s a pounding in my head/Glitter all over the room/Pink flamingos in the pool/I smell like a mini bar/DJ’s passed out in the yard/Barbies on the barbecue/Is this a hickey or a bruise?
If you are Kanye West, you have probably dealt with a lot of “Drunk And Hot Girls.” Who am I kidding? Most guys have probably picked a drunk girl in a miniskirt out of the gutter:
I don’t wanna drop your friends off, I just want you/You wanna sit down but we hit the drive through/Please don’t fall asleep baby we almost back/Please don’t throw up in the car we almost crash/Oh now you sober, how’d I know you’d say that
2. “Tik Tok”-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Ke$ha[/lastfm]
Ke$ha wakes up in my favorite place to fall asleep while drunk: The bathtub. The difference between Ke$ha and I is that she wakes up feeling like P.Diddy and I wake up feeling like Samara from The Ring:
Wake up in the morning/Feeling like P Diddy (Hey, what’s up girl?)/Got my glasses/I’m out the door/I’m gonna hit this city (Let’s go)/Before I leave/Brush my teeth with a/Bottle of Jack/’Coz when I leave for/The night I ain’t coming back
1. “One More Drink”-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Ludacris[/lastfm]
Ludacris never fails to make us laugh, although waking up to a less-than-pretty face the morning after is never a laughing situation. That is what Sabrina at AMP would call a “Gurrrrrrrrrrrl Situation.”
Woke up da next mornin’ and all I can remember/Was takin’ shots and tippin’ da bartender/Surrender to da woman, end up bringin’ me home/Cause’ she started lookin’ better every shot of Patron (Yep)/I jumped up with a devilish grin/Cause’ tonight damn right! I might do it again!
