Going down the rabbit hole of Internet humour will land you in some strange places, and in today's episode we present to you: weird Spotify playlists.
The meme is pretty self-explanatory. A Twitter account known as @weirdspotify first popped up in May and began uploading hilariously specific playlists that Spotify users have created for the most inane of things. The account has quickly gone viral, with over 400,000 followers as of 16 July.
From the pains of choosing a font for your school essay to Owen Wilson walking through an art museum, here are 7 weird playlists you didn't know you needed.

It's probably safe to say we read all of the song titles in Owen Wilson's signature drawl. Ranging from Post Malone to indie pop gem Magdalena Bay and disco queen Kylie Minogue, that's a lot of different ways to say "wow".

This playlist from ukuleliz perfectly encapsulates the human condition by depicting the trials and tribulations of trying to sleep. Needing to pee after you've just gotten comfortable in your bed is arguably the worst first-world problem out there.

Now that's a lot of character growth for someone who hates Ohio. The r/IHateOhio subreddit might beg to differ, though.
