Those people who have newer washing machines (RICH BITCHES!) know that it makes shrill, chirpy noises that actually sound better than most of the music out there right now. But some of those people claim to be stoned talented enough to turn those beeps and bloops into a melodic track. Two guys on TikTok (where else?) have proven that you can make sweet, sweet music out of the dings on your washing machine. Listen, we’re all bored, so it HAS come to this.

In the most recent post, Kurt turns on his washing machine and, with the help of fellow musician, Jason Pitts, bangs out a perfect chorus of A-ha’s 1985 masterpiece “Take On Me”.
As fabulous as the rendition is, it’s not the first pitch-perfect performance that Kurt and his fast fingers have given. He’s done “Blinding Lights” by The Weeknd on the microwave, Usher’s song, “Yeah” with the oven doors, and the Coffin Dance Meme on a door entry keypad.
