The CIA Tortures Prisoners With These Songs

Music torture has been used by the CIA for years and they don’t just use the painful music our parents listened to. They use popular music that you might love. But would you still love that song after hearing it for 30 hours straight?

I will fully admit, I don’t think I could even handle my current favorite song (Neon Trees, Sleeping with a Friend) for 30 hours straight. According to, “Music torture has been common practice for the CIA ever since it began its “enhanced interrogation program” in the early 2000s. The process is designed to “create fear, disorient … and prolong capture shock in prisoners.”

Some of these songs are more than just annoying like the Barney Theme song. Some were chosen based on the lyrics. Some were chosen to insult the prisoner. Some of these songs I don’t recognize. I totally disagree with the Eminem song…love that song! Do you think the CIA picked the right songs? *WARNING: BAD LANGUAGE IN SOME SONG TITLES.*

Songs The CIA Uses To Torture Prisoners

I would like to add, Lady in Red by Chris DeBurgh, The Barbie Song, Have A Bad Day by Daniel Powder, Jars of Clay by Christina Perry and a song that tortures me daily, Happy by Pharrell Williams. I don’t need to be shackled and isolated in a dark room to be in physical pain from that song!

What songs do you think the CIA should use to torture Prisoners of War?
