Remember when Lorde came out with Royals? Man, the radio played the ever-living crap out of that. Like, *ALL* *THE* *TIME*.
I was getting sick of it but the first time they sent me out to Annapolis for a month, I was driving from the Baltimore airport thinking “I have no idea what I’m doing or what’s going on or what my job actually entails…” and Royals came on the radio and I thought “well, at least I recognize this.”
Before that, I want to say that the song was “Somebody I Used To Know” and, holy cow, the radio played that until everybody was sick of Gotye to the point where they *STILL* won’t listen to him. Which is unfair. He’s had some other good songs.
Well, I heard this song on the radio on the way to work today and it was the first time I heard it and, a quarter of the way through, I thought “man… this is a really good song…” and halfway through I thought “man… this is a great song!” and then, when it was almost through I thought “man… this song is so good, they’re going to play it to death…”
But, before that happens, we’re still going to be in the “this is a great song!” stage. Check this song out. It kicks butt.
They’re going to play it to death.
(And I watched the video and you might want to play it in another window and just enjoy the song without having to subject yourself to the visuals. Kids these days.)
So… what are you listening to?
