Spin the soundtrack to bad decisions? Check.

So with the risk of sounding like a granny I need to spout off on the quality of some of the pop music in the world. Well, or really just the most recent single by The White Tie Affair.

Yes, we have all had those nights where the beer goggles got the best of us and we have a drunken bar make-out sheesh that would put most Jersey Girls to shame (or you have a friend who has done this....hi, I'm the friend. Ok, so now we all know what's going on here, right? Good.)

BUT said alcohol infused lip-lock, or heaven forbid hook-up, is not worthy of a song. Especially a song that just repeats "You look better when I'm drunk" twenty-six times, give or take a drunk. Not that I took the time to count or anything. The lyrics "A little less thinkin' and a lot more drinkin/That'll work for me tonight" and "Hey DJ spin the soundtrack to bad decisions/And these drinks, make me, lose my self control" the only other gems in the whole damn song.

I'm not a music snob, really. Yes, I listen to mostly hardcore rock and many people of that "genre" (if such a thing really even exists anymore....I'm over labels really, but you have to explain it somehow, right? Stupid catch twenty-two!) are pretty damn snobby about what they consider "mainstream music"...I'm not one of those people. I LOVE the top 40 and club music scene. I'm currently beyond obsessed with all things Gaga, Your Love is my Drug by Kesha (or is it Keshramous?) and Bulletproof by La Roux.

This is just a plea to the radio stations....please don't play crappy-crap, ok? And that includes song that aren't historically accurate. Yes, Taylor, I'm taking to you, girl.

Love to all,
~the this is why I usually just listen to my ipod gal, Jess

PS. Even if I've accidentally peaked your interest about this song, please-PLEASE do not go listen to it. It does not need any more "hits"! mmkthanks.

A few weeks ago, I was listening to the radio and didn't recognize half the songs they were playing. And the ones I did recognize, I didn't like.

I am officially old.

Oh crap what has Taylor done? I must admit...I'm a fool for her cheesy jams. LOVE Ke$ha and obvi love Gaga. Dug. (Dug = what my phone thinks I'm trying to say when I text "duh"). xo
