A play off of the popular “no one” followed by “me” construction, the internet’s latest meme has people sharing the song you’re listening to that, well, clearly shows that you are deeply in your sad feelings. Examples include, but are not limited to, saying you’re happy and calm while listening to “Paralyzer” by Finger Eleven; bopping to “Winner Takes It All” fromMamma Mia(the movie version), after saying you’re fine with a breakup; or telling your mom not to visit for the weekend while harmonizing to theLes Miserablesfinale.
Naturally, the best uses of the “my headphones” meme can be found in recent tweets, like this one from Chloe Bryan, listening to theNPRTiny Desk concert version ofTaylor Swift’s “All Too Well”on high volume after saying she’s fine.
Twitter user @NatalieAmmerman incorporatedKylie Jenner’s “rise and shine” videointo her use of the meme on Tuesday.
Here are some of the best “my headphones” memes circulating social media this week — maybe you can take down some sad song recommendations.
