This Texas Heat Wave must be getting to me because I can’t believe I’m about to do what I’m about to do. It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time for Tuesday Tunes. I usually try to feature some good up-and-coming music, or some classics that will never be beat, or at the very least, something GOOD. But today, I’m throwing that all out the window in an effort to be honest and transparent. Today, I bring to you bubblegum, totally crappy in most senses of the word, mainstream pop music. Ugh, my soul is dying a little as I type this.
But you guys, I cannot stop listening to this! It’s infiltrated my brain and somehow set up association with summer-tastic music that makes you happy and want to dance. Seriously. I don’t know what’s happened to me. But I just can’t apologize for it anymore. If you drive by me on I-30 at around 5:30 pm and I’m singing on the top of my lungs and bouncing to the music, there’s a pretty good chance one of these fluff-balls is the culprit.
Please don’t lose faith in me. I promise next week I will be back with high-quality music goodness. But for now, go ahead and drop your Mr. Cool act and admit that you kinda can’t help but dance along too. It’s summer. Don’t take yourself so seriously. It’ll be our little secret.
Tonight, Tonight – Hot Chelle Rae
