These days, we’re into contradictions
I got up at 5:30 this morning. Not necessarily by choice, but because my dogs decided at 5 that they absolutely, without a doubt, needed to go out. So I trucked them out to do their business, after which they promptly went back to sleep.
Not so much for me, so I got up to watch TV before going out for a run.
I haven’t woken up with more than a half hour to spare before work in a long time. I enjoy Jump Start on VH1, I just haven’t had time to watch it in a while.But the more that I watch the music videos, the more I think to generations 20 and 30 years from now, trying to figure out what the “trend” of music in the ’10s is. And here’s what I’ve come up with: we like contradiction.
Let me bring you through my music journey.
1. “Your Body” by Christina Aguilera
Apparently, trailer parks are sexy now. Especially when they’re paired with Rainbow-Brite.
2. “Bottom of the River” by Delta Rae
Super excited about this one. Amazing video and song, plus a capella has now hit mainstream. Awesome. Nevertheless, it came directly after the sexy trailer parks.
–> Slight break for some Calvin Harris/Ne-Yo and the lovely Ellie Goulding.
3. “Too Close” by Alex Clare
So the fact that I haven’t seen this video until this morning is completely my fault, because I’ve loved this song for months. I had no idea it was sung by a lumberjack, however. It’s techno, so I just assumed … no lumberjack.
So there you have it. Sexy trailer parks, mainstream a capella, and a techno-singing lumberjack. And all within a half hour.
