10 Songs for Anyone Who Has a Busyhead

Whether it’s because of the approaching finals week, a fight with a friend or it’s just been one of those days/weeks/months/years, sometimes we find ourselves overthinking everything we say or do. Recently, I started living in my head way too much and found some songs that seemed to express all the thoughts that were racing in my mind. I decided to make a playlist of these songs for the next time I have a busyhead. 

Busyhead” – Noah Kahan

This song is the namesake for my playlist and when I first heard it, I think I played it on repeat for 3 hours. Highly recommend anything by Noah Kahan.

“Ease My Mind” – Ben Platt

If Ben Platt’s voice can’t ease my mind then I don’t know what will.

“Keep On” – Sasha Sloan

I like this song because it truly is a bop that encourages you to dance your way out of your overthinking.

“Losing Me” – Gabrielle Aplin, JP Cooper

Another upbeat song that reminds you that even if you are going through some stuff, you still have people in your life who care and want what’s best for you.

“Was It Something I Said” – MyKey

This song is so lowkey and calm and expresses the worry of wondering if you said the wrong thing to someone.

“On a Prayer” – Boy in Space, SHY Martin

I recently discovered Boy in Space and honestly, do not sleep on him.

“Mess” – Noah Kahan

Another Noah Kahan track! I first heard this song with my best friend from high school and we immediately vibed with it. When everything seems to be happening all at once and it’s hard to manage all the pieces, you need to take a moment and look at the mess before you start to clean it up.

“Problems” – A R I Z O N A

The first step is admitting you have a problem, right?

“comethru” – Jeremy Zucker

To be honest, the main reason I like this song so much is for the line “now I’m shaking drinking all this coffee.” I was having myself a busyhead day and this song randomly came on shuffle and I was drinking a venti cold brew and as soon as I heard that line, I VIBED.

“Lose You to Love Me” – Selena Gomez

I absolutely love this song because it shows the growth Selena experienced after her breakup. The music video is so vulnerable and shows all the emotions that a person experiences during the process of healing.

Notre Dame '21

I am a Marketing and Film major at Notre Dame and I live in Welsh Family Hall, where I serve as the publicity commissioner. I'm the middle sibling of 7 kids, so you could say that I'm an extrovert. Choosing a favorite TV show is too hard so here are my top 3: The Office, The Politician, and The Great British Baking Show. I love telling stories and hope to share my best ones with the Her Campus community.
