Taylor Swift, Blank Space


Google just released their top trending search results for 2015 and we couldn't be more jazzed. It's kind of like stealing your little brothers phone and browsing his hilarious and disturbing search history for your personal enjoyment. Some of the categories released were 'Top Trending Actors,' 'Top Trending Fashion Questions' and 'Top Trending Weddings,' to name a few. We became particularly fascinated by the 'Top Trending Song Lyrics.' Here's who made the top ten:

1. "Hello"
2. "Take Me to Church"
3. "Blank Space"
4. "Uptown Funk"
5. "Thinking Out Loud"
6. "Hotline Bling"
7. "See You Again"
8. "Trap Queen"
9. "The Hills"
10. "Cheerleader"

Very interesting! We yanked a few of our favorites off the list to analyze and ponder. We thought deeply about what it says about a person who searches for each of these song's lyrics. Find out what we think your most Googled song lyrics says about you and your fantastic personality. If you've questioned why your baby cousin Googled "Trap Queen" 78 times during the calendar year, we can finally offer you some answers. If you're wondering how the eff your dad learned the lyrics to "Hotline Bling," we can tell you that too. Go ahead, read on and discover something new about yourself. 


"Hello" by Adele. Now, sis. You really needed to Google this? Maybe walk into a Denny's or, like, turn on any device that transmits sound waves. You were bound to hear it enough times to memorize the lyrics like it's the damn Taco Bell menu. We're guessing you Googled this in your Ugg boots, as the rain poured outside of your bedroom window. #PSL in hand you melted over every lyric, wondering how someone could write a song so tragically all about you. When you saw Katy Perry and Kate Hudson's tearful reaction Instagram's, you posted one as well because your emotions are valid too. If you Googled these lyrics you're not ashamed to be on #TeamBasic. Nor should you be. We see that "Live, Laugh, Love" poster hanging over your bed. Keep doing you, boo. 


"Take Me to Church" by Hozier. Child. If you Googled these lyrics you're most likely in the final throes of your college years, tearfully mouthing the lyrics as you question your uncertain future. On particularly rough days, you turn this song on and gaze pensively out of your Carlo Rossi-lined dorm window. Today, while 'gramming a nostalgic snap of you and your buddies at your first freshman kegger, you thought these lyrics would make the perfect caption to your #TBT. So you Googled them, and you found the perfect words. Something like, "Every Sunday's getting more bleak, a fresh poison each week," right? Hurts so good. Don't cry BB, college may almost be over, but it's a good thing. You'll no longer have to go to beer-slicked bars full of other gingham dude-bros slurring along to this effing song. Also, if you Googled these lyrics, nobody needs to know this is where you go when you're in your dark place. Love you. 


"Blank Space" by Taylor Swift. The only people responsible for putting these lyrics on Google's trending list are the parents who forced their 3-year-old to memorize them. They turned your baby nephew into a Tay-Tay prodigy as they coaxed him into singing the song for a tweetable Vine. Thanksgiving dinner was extra tense this year when family members found out The Ellen DeGeneres Show didn't pick up the vid. 


"Uptown Funk" by Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars. If we came over to your house and saw this in your search history, we would assume you bulk-buy sticks of Axe deodorant at Costco. We would also draw the conclusion that you own a fedora and wear it to the club. Sometimes you take shots that are wildly colored, and you have no problem wearing your sunglasses indoors. When this song comes on, you're that guy, living your best life in the middle of the dance floor. Proud of you, boo-boo. 


"Hotline Bling" by Drake. This is a glitch, Google. Just like Adele's "Hello," no one ever looked up these lyrics either because they DIDN'T NEED TO. This song played in every elevator, school dance and gynecologists office in 2015. What does looking up these lyrics say about you, then? If you Googled "Hotline Bling" this year it means you're either a dad or our dad. Don't give up the good fight, guys. 


"Trap Queen" by Fetty Wap. If you Googled these lyrics, it's because you're in high school, and you needed to memorize them before the sophomore talent show. You're up against the dance team who just set the stage on fire after nae-naeing their whips off. Fear not, Fetty fan. You've got the lyrics down, and you're about to be crowed trap homecoming king after that lit performance.
