I never thought I would post a gen-u-wine Pop song on here, but the other night I heard someone playing that Gotye song at the pool, so I think I’m already sort of in a bridge too far territory.
In any event, this is less about a Carly Rae Jepsen song and more about an excellent piece on NPR, by Ann Powers. It’s about tolerance, and how a song can be a platform for social change, and you should go read it now. This might, maybe, some, redeem the “recut culture” that we’re in today. If a song can express an original idea or embrace a movement that encourages acceptance, you will always find me rooting for it.
Here’s the original, but really, don’t bother. Just go read the article. It has plenty of great embeds.
PS: I’m not the only one that heard the title and thought this was an Arrested Development related song, am I?
