All-time Bangers to Clean Your Room

It’s October and you’ve probably felt that midnight chill already. This means it’s time to update your wardrobe, rearrange your closet, and clean your room. Now, raise your hand if you love cleaning your room. We thought so.

Whether you hate cleaning your room or feel a strong aversion to it, we’ve curated a list of all-time bangers to make time pass more quickly and enjoyable.

Clean Your Room Playlist

Cleaning can be repetitive, monotonous, and energy-draining. Or, it can be that one moment where you can succumb to a mood set by an Indiemono playlist. And we love a happy, energetic, and all-time bangers’ mood.

Trust us, dusting will never be the same again.

“good 4 u” by Olivia Rodrigo

We start off with Olivia Rodrigo and, no, it’s not “Vampire.” Although this last hit has more elements of rock, this American singer-songwriter has tried to create her own spot in the pop genre by adding elements of punk and rock. This track is included in her debut studio album SOUR (2021) which topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States and spent several weeks there. It also performed well internationally, of course.

As you’ve noticed, her lyrics usually revolve around themes of heartbreak, jealousy, and moving on after a breakup. She masterfully expresses a mix of emotions (anger and sadness), which is what would happen to anyone who sees their ex-partner in a new relationship and happy:

Well, good for you, you look happy and healthy

Not me, if you ever cared to ask

Good for you, you’re doing great out there without me, baby

God, I wish that I could do that

I’ve lost my mind, I’ve spent the night crying on the floor of my bathroom

But you’re so unaffected, I really don’t get it

But I guess good for you

This is perfect to start throwing stuff out! Just saying…

“Let’s Get Loud” by Jennifer Lopez

Who hasn’t jumped to “Let’s Get Loud”? This timeless song by Jennifer Lopez (American singer/actress/goddess) was released back in 1999 when she had fewer abs than now at 54. This track is included in On the 6 

This is one of the most-heard all-time bangers: dance-pop, Latin pop, and elements of salsa music. What more do you need?

The lyrics are in line with the song’s energy: embracing the joy of life and celebrating it through music and dance. A true anthem of positivity and empowerment:

Let’s get loud, let’s get loud

Turn the music up, let’s do it

C’mon, people, let’s get loud, let’s get loud

Turn the music up to hear that sound

Let’s get loud, let’s get loud

Ain’t nobody gotta tell ya what you gotta do

If you’ve mopped the floor at this point, we advise you to wait till it dries ’cause you’re going to want to dance.

“Hey Ya!” by Outkast

Although you may associate Outkast with their first major hit Ms. Jackson, “Hey Ya!” was the track that proved this American hip-hop duo could cross over to any genre; included in their double album Speakerboxxx/The Love Below (2003), it still represents a genre-blending with elements of funk, hip-hop, and pop:

Shake it, shake, shake it, shake it, shake, shake it (Uh oh)

Shake it, shake, shake it, shake it, shake it (Uh oh)

Shake it like a Polaroid picture, hey ya!

Despite the upbeat and danceable music, the lyrics contain a sense of melancholy and a reflection on how short-lived love is:

Then what makes, then what makes (what makes, what makes)

Love the exception?

So why, oh, why, oh

Why, oh, why, oh, why, oh

Are we so in denial when we know we’re not happy here?

(Y’all don’t want to hear me, you just want to dance)

So, go ahead, and dance.

“Pump It” by Black Eyed Peas

Another American hip-hop group, The Black Eyed Peas, released this pumped-up track in 2006 in the 4th studio album Monkey Business.

Although “Pump It” is mainly a hip-hop and dance track, you’ll feel those rock and funk strokes. What’s more, any Tarantino fan, quickly detects the instrumental riff from “Misirlou,” by Dick Dale and his Del-Tones, which gave a distinct musical identity to Pulp Fiction.

The lyrics of are all about partying, dancing, and having a damn good time. There’s a reason why “pump it” is the most repeated phrase:

And pump it (louder)

Pump it (louder)

Pump it (louder)

Pump it (louder)

Turn up the radio

Blast your stereo

Right (ha, ha, ha)

This infectious energy has made it a popular choice for dance and workout playlists; well, and now room-cleaning.

“Just Dance” by Lady Gaga

We wanted to wrap up the blog with a clear message. In case we didn’t make it clear already… This also contagious track by Lady Gaga, featuring Colby O’Donis, appears in her debut studio album The Fame (2008). This all-time banger definitely marked the beginning of Lady Gaga’s meteoric rise to stardom as a pop icon.

The lyrics are about – you guessed it – partying, clubbing, dancing, and just going all out:

What’s goin’ on on the floor?

I love this record, baby, but I can’t see straight anymore (woo!)

Keep it cool, what’s the name of this club?

I can’t remember but it’s alright, a-alright

The main message? Let loose and enjoy the moment, even if you’re not feeling your best:

Just dance, gonna be okay, da da doo-doo-mmm

Just dance, spin that record, babe, da da doo-doo-mmm

Just dance, gonna be okay, d-d-d-dance

Dance, dance, just, j-j-just dance

An electronic dance-pop song with elements of synth-pop might be what you need to call it a day of cleaning.
