Best Instagram Captions that are Lyrics

By now, social networks have become a daily part of life for most smartphone users. Facebook connects us to family and friends, Twitter allows us to share our thoughts, opinions, and jokes with the world at large, Snapchat lets us document our daily lives without worrying about the permanent repercussions of having something online forever, and Instagram is a cross between all of these, with the sharing and photo functionality of Snapchat, the connections of Facebook, and the ability to follow random strangers as on Twitter.

Obviously, to pick up followers you might not know in real life, you’re going to have to impress by making your profile all your own. Unlike Facebook’s profile options, Instagram really values creating and personalizing your page all for yourself, making a space that feels like your own. Placing captions under your photos is a great, organic way to make people connect with your images, proven time and time again to connect some form of authentic connotation between your photo and the song you’ve connected to it.

Of course, it can be pretty tough to think of classic song lyrics when you’re in the heat of the moment, trying to add lyrics to a photo you just captured before posting it. You don’t always have time to pull out your headphones and listen to some sample songs on your phone, so let us be your musical jukebox. We’ve gathered a ton of song lyrics below for your use, split into genre, with some classic song lyrics and some more obscure. You’re bound to find something to connect with below. Have a look below, and remember to keep this page bookmarked for whenever you need a quote.
