The short clips of songs you hear when browsing TikTok have an incredible ability to get stuck in your head. It's that attribute that powers the most popular TikTok songs and trends. Unlike TikTok sounds, which often have spoken vocals or specific editing to change the punchline or theme of a song to fit a meme, songs on TikTok are just a precisely selected snippet.
Whether it's a song that helped define the power of TikTok, like Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road," something by an already popular artist like Mariah Carey's "Obsessed," or even a relatively obscure piece of a song from a musical about Henry VIII's wives ("Get Down" from Six), the best songs on TikTok seem made for the medium. Browsing TikTok can be a great way to add great new songs to your playlist - if only so you can hear the whole thing and get the clip out of your head.
