I’m not very good at music as a hobby, so I listen to the real radio (FM radio being it’s technical name) when I’m in the car and sometimes at home too. I enjoy it. I enjoy the DJs, I enjoy pop music, and I enjoy being a participant in popular culture. (Interestingly, that is also exactly why I am obsessed with American Idol. Ryan Seacrest, pop music, most watched show ever.)
The majority of music I hear is the same music over and over again. This week it’s Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, a new Five for Fighting song, and maybe one other thing I’m forgetting. So I was shocked to hear this happy ditty come on the radio. It feels so… not mainstream. (It probably is on account of it was on my FM radio, but it felt different.) If you haven’t heard this yet, enjoy. The music and the video feel like magic to me. Sometimes I play it over and over again.
