There are so many catchy songs out there.
But quite often, we probably get caught up into the fun, upbeat music without paying all that much attention to the lyrics. But if you take a moment to stop and really listen, you might be surprised that the content of the song you love doesn’t necessarily match the upbeat feel of the background music.
Here are a few examples for your consideration:
Broken Hearted by Kamin
The age old story of unrequited love.
Follow Me by Uncle Cracker
A happy go lucky ode to infidelity.
Payphone by Maroon 5
Maybe a sad breakup story can actually sound quite happy.
Mack the Knife by Bobby Darin
There’s nothing like a fun and catchy tune about a murderer.
Most of us have heard the stories…
Websites like Youtube have at least launched, if not completely built, the careers of some of today’s most popular pop music artists. Two such examples that come to mind right away are the band Karmin and teen sensation Justin Bieber. No matter you think of them and their music (I could live without JB), there is no doubt they are big-time today.
This being the case, perhaps it is no surprise that in our digital age, massive chain reactions can occur inspired by a single song or artist. Last year perhaps the most widespread example would have been LMFAO’s “I’m Sexy and I Know It.” This year, without any doubt whatsoever, Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” takes the drown.
The catchy tune has been covered if you will, in Youtibe videos uploaded by everyone from U.S. military servicemen to members of the American swim teams from the 2012 London Olympics to the cheerleaders for the Miami Dolphins and the players for the Pittsburgh Steelers. And at this point, it doesn’t seem like there are any signs of a slowdown.
The aforementioned chain reaction is fascinating.
