Who needs an algorithm to discover new tunes? Each week, EW’s crack team of music experts will comb through the charts to seek out similar-sounding songs to the ones you’ve overplayed. This week, check out swaps for songs by Justin Timberlake, Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Lumineers, and more.

Like “Can’t Stop The Feeling!” by Justin Timberlake?

We’re pretty sure it’s a joke, but after Father John Misty got a writing credit on Beyoncé’s Lemonade, all bets are off. Either way, from its title to faux-weary lines like “I drink whiskey/When I’m not drinkin’ rye” – not to mention the fact it features actual “Hey’s” and Ho’s” – it’s pretty clear that FJM is taking aim at the Lumineers and their ilk, and its enough to make us kneel in homage to his brilliance. We won’t actually do it, though. Can’t get this distressed denim dirty.
