Feeling Poptimistic

Recommended Posts

Well, the Poptimism thread got blown up with the old board. This is unacceptable and must be changed.

 

Since I haven't heard any of the really new stuff over the past few months, I'll just go with some fairly recent ones instead.

 

Some Colbie Caillat. . .

 

 

Some Ingrid Michaelson. . .

 

 

And some Sara Bareilles

 

 

Bring forth the pop!

At least we know the thread can only go up from there.

Yes :-)

 

I mentioned this in the random thread - but I am really ashamed at how much I like the Smurfs 2 song

That Heart Attack song is the worst pop song I've heard in two years, I think. It's atrocious.

I refuse.

 

Instead, I'll post some other stuff.

 

I think the "Hello...." bit is absurdly good. I can't speak for the rest of the song but that's some sort of drunken rave bliss or something. Having a daughter now, Kesha scares the crap out of me.

 

 

Speaking of things that scare the crap out of me. 

 

 

Other things that scare me: How thoroughly Lana Del Ray has shifted into being a pop zombie:

 

 

And this one is abjectly great. I kind of love it. It's currently on my more indy alt-rock channel but I imagine it'll be a pop song in a month or two.

Let's do another compare/contrast with Lovato

 

Two songs that came out at almost exactly the same time.

 

Lovato's Made in the USA:

 

 

Bonnie McKee (Who writes songs for just about every pop singer)'s American Girl

 

 

It's like the goofus and gallant of pop songs here

The Bonnie McKee song seems like something Kesha would have sold to Miley Cyrus for extra cash, but wouldn't actually record herself.  It's OK, but not as fun as one would expect a song like this to be.  She's missing Kesha's goofy charm.

Had heard it once before but didn't know who sang it, loving that Bonnie McKee song!

This came out a couple of years ago now, my favourite pop song of the past 5 years or so, still on my mp3 player.

 Not a super-huge fan of Ms. American Idol #1, but there's no question this song has a military-grade hook embedded in it.

"We run thing, things don't run we" - I really like this. Unoriginal as fuck, but there's a charm to it nonetheless.

 

I now notice Matt D posted it in spoiler tags above, but fuck it.

This song has no business being as fucking catchy as it is. Of course - I am still trying to figure out what the fuck she is wearing.

Mike Will Made It is a hell of a producer. Anyone weirded out by the "Everyone in the line in the bathroom tryin to get a line in the bathroom" line?

Hey, power pop is still pop.  I just found out about these guys; it's one of the Hanson brothers, James Iha, the bassist from Fountains of Wayne, and fucking BUN E. CARLOS~!
