Finally, it's not the Holiday Inn getting all the shout-out in pop songs.
Comfort Inn is getting a big-up in this new song from Jhené Aiko who equates Comfort Inn with a happy ending...of sorts. Actually, well, not really at all since the sad song is about heartbreak and unrequited love and she sets some of her ex's stuff on fire. Eep. Here are the lyrics in case your boss doesn't like you watching music videos at work.
Really, we had the perfect, end
That night we shared at the Comfort Inn
We made love like the world would have ended
If either of us had admitted..
We were in love
But I was the only one..
I was the only lonely one..
It's no classic Sugarhill Gang jam but at least it's getting the Comfort Inn brand in the mind of millennials, right?
Did you realize that almost 50 songs mention the Holiday Inn hotel chain? Some are more flattering than others, for sure, but it is really interesting. A few of them even have "Holiday Inn" in the song title. Can you think of any other corporate company, let alone hotel chain, that has received even close to that amount of pop-culture references? From hip-hop to country, the number of mentions is really bizarre.
We know it's a popular and well-known establishment, but we're somewhat baffled/majorly impressed as to how it has managed to work its way into so many songs. You know, McDonald's is popular, and so is Walmart, but we're having trouble thinking of one song that mentions them, let alone 50.
Hats off to Holiday Inn -- somehow, someway, people feel the need to sing their praises. Here are a few of the more popular mentions. Do you have any favorites? Feel free to share them with us on this fine Friday!
