‘Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)’ by Kate Bush
Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill” started trending in a big way thanks to its inclusion in the latest season of Stranger Things, and we don’t think it’s going to go away any time soon. With its epic, dreamy sound, it’s a fit for all types of videos—but especially the ones where someone literally wishes they could swap places with someone.
@clilfsbff easily the best character in season 4 😍 #maxmayfield #strangerthings4 #vecna #fyp #tiktok #viral #like #maxmayfieldedit #clilfsbff #like #eleven #el #11 #runningupthathill #adealwithgod ♬ Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God) – Kate Bush
‘Betty (Get Money)’ by Yung Gravy
Yung Gravy’s popular “Betty (Get Money)” has gone viral for a number of reasons—including its iconic sampling of Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up”—but the sound we’ve been hearing most lately are the lyrics : “Gravy, you so vicious (ooh), You so clean, so delicious, How come you ain’t got no misses?” The catchy sound is perfect for showing off your crush or someone you admire and how they never miss.

‘I Ain’t Worried’ by OneRepublic
OneRepublic’s “I Ain’t Worried” can be used for anything and everything thanks to its carefree whistling sound backed by an epic, momentous bassline. Whether you’re making a video about your favorite recipe, your best vacation memories or a life-changing realization, this track is the perfect backing to make it an unforgettable summer memory.

‘POP!’ by Twice
“POP!” by Twice is one of the latest dance trends to take over TikTok, and for good reason. This dance is all about demonstrating your hand-eye coordination—but the sound’s for so much more than just that. Check out High School Musical The Musical: The Series‘s Sofia Wylie demonstrate her talents below.

‘Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)’ by ABBA
“Gimme! Gimme! Gimme (A Man After Midnight)” isn’t the only classic ABBA track that has recently made it back into the spotlight, but the 1979 hit has been circulating recently thanks to its incredible versatility. It’s not paired with one trend in particular, instead being the perfect complement to any video that’s upbeat and stylin’—or anything that’d make you say, “Gimme!”

‘Stir Fry’ by Migos
This song has been on TikTok for some time, but only now is it blowing up on the app. It’s trending alongside videos of friends who actually made their dream trips a reality, instead of just talking about them in group chat, so if you’re currently on a friend vacay, it’s just the thing to show off.
@morelasticaalso wtf is andres doing♬ original sound – .
‘The Night We Met’ by Lord Huron
This enchanting yet lyrically nostalgic song is used on TikTok for confessions and commentary that run the range from silly to straight-up honest. You ask a random question, followed by something completely unrelated, and then the answer to that question. It may sound weird, but we love the ways people are putting it to use.

‘All Kinda Drugs’ by Young Thug & Bloody Jay
The bold new “All Kinda Drugs” trend begins with users explaining “I’m not addicted to anything,” followed by something they absolutely love. Heartthrob Gavin Casalegno, known for his role as Jeremiah in The Summer I Turned Pretty, shares that he is actually obsessed with puppies and coffee. We have heart eyes for Gavin, in the show and in real life.

‘Daylight’ by Harry Styles
We can’t help but fall in love with Harry’s voice even more every time we hear it. His new album, Harry’s House, features the song “Daylight,” a whimsical track perfect for capturing those unforgettable moments with friends.
