Sometimes I all want in a song is catchiness. That’s my requirement for this post. It’s not the most inspiring criteria but it definitely is a lighthearted, optimistic view on music, which is all that music needs to be sometimes.
I guess I should note the elements of the song or make some profound observation about the song itself but I’m just going to tell you I like it I guess.
I’m not sure if that’s a quality music review. Actually, I know it’s not but what’s there to say when you know you like something but aren’t quite sure how much? Sure I like it enough to feature it here but it’s not exactly trailblazing or breaking edge to just say I like something. If I was reading this, I’d be like, “c’mon Ian, that’s a pretty bad job at describing something you supposedly like” but sometimes words elude me. It’s easier to be honest (and just say I like it but why am I still rambling? I’m not sure).
What I want to know is whether my (rare) fits of eloquence counter my seeming tendency to say nothing in a lot of words. Granted, it’s an exploration of music, thoughts, and words that lead to each of the extremes. It’s just, I don’t know–the ability to kind of send out my thoughts without the inconvenience of trying to confine and limit them to words, yeah, that’s what I want.
Anyways, there’s a soft spot in my heart for dancy rock and Trojans fits in so well. This post is actually about a bit more than I’m letting on and it was an exercise in wordplay; not that it makes a difference in liking this awesome song anyways.
