Surface Laptop Commercial Song Will Be Stuck In Your Head All Night After The Emmys

By

OK, you guys, I know you thought Sunday night was about the Emmys. You thought you were gonna see your favorite actors and actresses win ALL the awards tonight. You thought Stephen Colbert was going to make you laugh so hard, you'd pee your pants in front of all of your friends. But you absolutely thought incorrectly. Instead, tonight is totally about the super aesthetically pleasing Surface Laptop commercial song that played in the middle of the Emmys. Seriously, Stephen Colbert who? Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series who? (Sorry, Alec Baldwin.) TONIGHT IS ABOUT CATCHY MUSIC, MY FRIENDS.

In case you were wondering what that catchy song was that will literally ruin your life because of how often you're gonna listen to it now, allow me to enlighten you. That bangin' tune is called "Thunder," and it's from Imagine Dragons. You know, the band who sings all of your other favorite songs, like "Believer," "Demons," and (#TBT) "Radioactive." I will say, though, if you haven't heard this particular song already, you have been missing out on a serious summer jam. (And also, who are you? Where have you been? Have you been hiding under a rock? Is there room for me there? The world scares me.)

Need the lyrics to "Thunder" so you can memorize them ASAP and vehemently yell them at all your friends when the song comes on because you're just so obsessed with it? Look no further, fam. I got you.

Just a young gun with a quick fuse I was uptight, wanna let loose I was dreaming of bigger things And wanna leave my own life behind Not a yes sir, not a follower Fit the box, fit the mold Have a seat in the foyer, take a number I was lightning before the thunder Thunder, thunder Thunder, thun', thunder Thun-thun-thunder, thunder, thunder Thunder, thun', thunder Thun-thun-thunder, thunder Thunder, feel the thunder Lightning and the thunder Thunder, feel the thunder Lightning and the thunder Thunder, thunder Thunder Kids were laughing in my classes While I was scheming for the masses Who do you think you are? Dreaming 'bout being a big star You say you're basic, you say you're easy You're always riding in the back seat Now I'm smiling from the stage while You were clapping in the nose bleeds Thunder Thunder, thun', thunder Thun-thun-thunder, thunder, thunder Thunder, thun', thunder Thun-thun-thunder, thunder Thunder, feel the thunder Lightning and the thunder Thunder, feel the thunder Lightning and the thunder Thunder Thunder, feel the thunder Lightning and the thunder, thunder Thunder, feel the thunder Lightning and the thunder, thunder Thunder, feel the thunder Lightning and the thunder, thunder Thunder, feel the thunder Lightning and the thunder, thunder Thunder, feel the thunder Lightning and the thunder, thunder Thunder, thunder, thunder Thun-thun-thunder, thunder Thunder, thunder, thunder Thun-thun-thunder, thunder Thunder, thunder, thunder Thun-thun-thunder, thunder Thunder, thunder, thunder Thun-thun-thunder, thunder

TBH, you shouldn't have much trouble memorizing these lyrics. It's mostly just the word "thunder" over and over and over again. I can't remember my own name half the time, but even I can handle this much.

OK, so now that you have the lyrics down, let's talk about something you may not have known about the song. The video is low-key pretty creepy. The setting seems to be some sort of futuristic society, and some really f*cking scary alien monster things are running around. IDK, to me, it looks like a nightmare, but I guess it looks cool if you're into being scared and having nightmares.

I will say, these monsters may still give me nightmares as a total adult, but they can dance a lot better than I can, so who's the real winner here? (Don't answer that.)
