1. The first time you hear the song, you feel a little fluttery feeling in your chest after the first few notes.

Do you have a crush on a song? You might have a crush on a song.

2. And by the time the song's chorus kicks in you've got full-on goosebumps.

Update: You definitely have a crush on a song.

3. You can feel the song's lyrics etch themselves into your brain as you listen.

You could probably sing the song from memory after one listen, tbh. That's how familiar this song feels on first listen.

4. As the song comes to a close, you feel a real sense of anxiety.

Rationally, you know the song has to end. Emotionally, you don't want it to end — ever.

5. When the song finally ends, you hit replay as fast as you can.

And "as fast as you can" is never fast enough.

6. And then you hit replay again. And again. And again.

Can't stop, won't stop.

7. And then, after you've listened to it a couple hundred times, you add it to all of your most important playlists.

And you give it prime placement, too.

8. And then send it to all your friends.

Sharing is caring!

9. When you finally come up for air, you briefly wonder if you're going to wear the song out.

To ration the song or not to ration the song, that is the question.

10. And you feel a little sad thinking about your old favorite song.

It may not be your favorite song anymore, but it will always hold a special place on your playlists.

11. But then you make yourself feel better by playing your new favorite song. Again.

Nothing will ever make you feel better than this song. At least, not until you discover your next favorite song.
