    People Are Sharing Songs That Only Exist In Pop Culture That They Wish Were Real And I Absolutely Agree

    Good luck not getting any of these songs stuck in your head!

    Don't get me wrong, music today is amazing, and every week there's a new bop to listen to. But, not gonna lie, there are some songs from our fave movies and TV shows that I wish were actually real.

    Lo and behold, I'm not the only one who thinks this! This week, TV writer Jenny Jaffe asked her followers "What are your favorite pieces of fake art or pop culture?" and these replies had me humming along to all these fake songs.

    I’ve had this conversation a few times lately, so I’m curious: what are your favorite pieces of fake art or pop culture? Like a pop song that exists within the world of a movie or TV show.
