My taste in music takes another hit

Fucking hell.

So I’m driving home from some shitty attempt at Christmas shopping last night, zipping recklessly up Memorial Drive and staring at the Boston skyline – which remains on the ever-dwindling list of things I love about this fetid corpse of a city I soon must leave – and I hear some saccharine-soaked, addictive-like-whoa pop song come on the radio.

Now, understand, I’m listening to Kiss FM. Well, not listening listening, but flipping through the stations, hoping to hear something decent, maybe even that Cascada song I’m obsessed with. (Yes, you all know how much of a bitch I am for euro-girlpop.)

So this "I can’t wait to see you again" jam comes on. And the volume gets louder, and louder, and louder, until it reaches the point where if 5.0 doesn't stop a 9-year-old in the car, I'm going to jail. By the time I hit the BU Bridge I’m in full-blown, full-motherfucking-frontal Rock Out mode. Holy shit this song rules. I’m hooked.

I get home, and plug the lyrics that I can vaguely remember into Google. Then it appears, smacking me in the dome like a bleary-eyed haddock fresh out of the water. The fucking song is released by Disney, and it’s by Miley Cyrus, who is not only Billy Ray Cyrus’ daughter, but also the "Part II" or whatever to the Hannah Montana phenomenon/empire/black tar heroin fix for pre-teen girls.

Great, now I’m CREEPY too. But I dare you to listen to this song and tell me it doesn’t rules eight ways north, south, east and west to Sunday. Enjoy at your own risk


  1. HA! awesome

    It's ok to be suckered by teen pop..happens to me all the time

  2. This is the best pop song since "Since U Been Gone." Now THAt is high praise.

  3. The only thing preventing this from being the most amazing thing ever is this one line:
    My best friend Leslie said
    "Oh, she's just bein' Miley"

    Not that it stops me from loving it as hard as I secretly love Avril's "Girlfriend."

  4. I hate Avril so hard but love her lame ass pop songs...some of them I can listen to over and over again..

    -a homo

  5. I replace that line with "Oh, she's just being Vanya."

    This post has gotten the most comments in Vanyaland's short history. What does that say?
