Pop covers a broad spectrum of music but I always think of it as those catchy "ear worm" songs that you can't get out of your head, regardless of actual genre. Much like the one above. As much as I hated that song, I had to admit it was catchy.
The "rules" of Play List Thursday:
Something Old: Songs that are at least 5 years old.
Something Current: Songs that have been released in the past year.
Something to Consider: This is the wild card category. Any song goes: old, current, guilty pleasure, whatever floats yer boat.
And because Brian is such a cool dude, he actually posts all the participants play lists on his blog so you can see what other runners are listening to as well.
Artist: Katy Perry
Title: Hot n Cold
Side Note: Absolute guilty pleasure for me. This song ranks right up there with Lady Gaga's Let's Dance. Not anything I normally listen to but geez is it ever catchy. And it's got a pretty good beat too. Now I *know* this doesn't quite make the 5 year cut as it was released in 2008 but it's pretty close.
Quotable: "You change your mind like a girl changes clothes".
Artist: Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen
Title: Good Time
Side Note: Ear Worm Alert!!! Try as I might I cannot get that chorus out of my head.
Quotable: "Woke up on the right side of the bed, what's up with the Prince song in my head?"
Something To Consider
Title: The King and All of His Men
Side Note: This may be classified as alternative in itunes but it's still pretty darn catchy, and it's a song that I love to run to.
Quotable: "How to be sure that what you say is the truth, when I see flaws in everything that you do."
