I hadn't ever heard this song before I stumbled on it on dooce the other day. Every time I hear a new pop song I like, I think, I should go back to pop (like thinking you want to give an ex a second chance and then you see him at a coffee shop and, um, no. So over that, in fact, ew.). When I try to go back to mainstream pop, flip on the old radio and wade through commercials to get to, some crap I don't want to listen to in between some more Katy Perry, who I also, no longer want to listen to, because after hearing Firework the first time, I loved it, but after hearing it the 61st time, well, not so much. It takes 15 minutes of mainstream radio and suddenly I realize I'm at dinner with an ex. I've got to get out!
I've tried to dissect my thing with pop, and here is what I've come up with: I can't wade through the crap (90%) I hate to get to the good (10% (that's being generous isn't it)) stuff. I also, don't like pop ballads. That goes for stuff that gets remade on Glee too (Yes I watch Glee). But I do love the dance favorites that I love. Like Lady GaGa. I listen to a lot of Lady GaGa because, I don't know what else to listen to. But, now that I run at the gym to pretty much only Lady GaGa, I'm terribly close to getting bored. I've gone back to my old Gus Gus albums filled with skips because I actually uploaded them from cds(!) and Brazilian Girls.
Conclusion: I don't know what pop songs to listen to that I will actually like, and my impatience shows my grey hairs. I may not cool enough for music anymore. How disappointing.
What upbeat pop songs do you love to listen/work out to?
