The TikTok Sea Shanty Phenomenon

I almost titled this "Why that tune is stuck in your head." Sea shanties have become a thing on TikTok, particularly the song "Soon May the Wellerman Come." Sea shanties are fun to sing, particularly with friends- or even strangers. The video sharing platform TikTok makes it easy for people to join in and add their voice to existing videos. When singer Nathan Evans posted his performance of the Wellerman, many others were inspired to contribute their voices. And the meme took off. The song is so infectious, you can't help but sing along.
