Music Video of the Week

This is on the radio quite a bit now. I like it.

Lorde – Royals

  2. Are you shitting me.

    Where do you find this stuff?

    She must have missed how that verse starts with “But every song’s like…”

    With very few exceptions, there isn’t much pop music out there celebrating consumerism in the form of investment banking or country club membership (and seriously, is that even still a thing?)

    Ugh. I am developing a seriously huge distaste for both feminists and atheists these last couple of years. The amount of ignorance and shallow prejudice there boggles me.

  3. A large percentage of my friends are both 1. progressives and 2. ex-debaters, which means they spend a LOT of time deconstructing media rhetoric in search of something to get pissy about. And then posting it to Facebook so that the echo chamber can agree.

  4. Of course, this is beneficial to me because if it weren’t for their screaming tirades I would never even find out what songs and artists were popular at the moment.

  5. Also, I suppose the most obvious rejoinder to her question: “why pick on black folks? Why not find other non-black examples of old money and wealth inequality?” is that THE SONG IS CALLED ROYALS!!!
