Just because the phrase “the playlist is the window to your soul” isn’t currently an actual expression that human beings say, doesn’t mean it’s not true! In fact, few things are as significant as the songs found on your playlist. For better or worse you are what you listen to, and former Big Time Rush star James Maslow was kind enough to reveal the super secret songs that occupy his current playlist.
“A lot of electronic dance music right now,” Maslow told People’s Choice at the Young Hollywood Awards earlier this year. “I’ve been a fan of Skrillex, and I can’t wait for him to come out with new stuff.”
While Maslow awaits Skrillex’s next release, he revealed the one song he just can’t get out of his head.
“I still can’t get ‘Happy’ out of my head,” the actor said. “It’s like one of the greatest songs ever written.”
And now, unfortunately, none of us will be able to get “Happy” out of our heads for the rest of the day. Pharrell’s buoyant ditty is a top-tier earworm. Our advice? Don’t fight it. Just clap along and eventually you’ll “feel like a room without a roof.”
