You step on your flight to go on the spring break trip that you’ve been planning for the past several months. TSA has spent hours upon hours making you wait in lines to get on this plane, and you can’t wait to get out of the dreary Michigan weather and go literally anywhere else.

As soon as you step into the cabin, you are greeted by a literal nightmare scenario: There are multiple babies on this plane. You invoke Samuel L. Jackson, muttering a quote from his 2006 smash hit film, Snakes on a Plane, swapping out the word “snakes” for “babies.” The plane lifts off, and the cacophony of cries begins. Rummaging through your bag, you realize that you left your noise-canceling headphones in your apartment. Have no fear, though, as you have this playlist to drown out the screams of those barely-formed humans.
