In “Good Time,” Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen declare “we don’t even have to try,” and then proceed to prove it. Owl City are probably best-known for their hit single “Fireflies” from 2009, which was a decent (or at least pleasantly mellow) song. As for Carly Rae Jepsen, she is responsible for “Call Me Maybe,” an inoffensive puff of cotton candy mediocrity that the nation has apparently clutched to its easily-impressed bosom.
Pop Song Limericks 8/17/2012
Some poetry this week, a series of limericks about the current top ten songs on the Billboard Hot 100. Why? Who knows…
1. Whistle by Flo Rida
As subtle as sci-fi Jane Fonda,
Flo’s song has still proved a golconda.
And although it’s not earned,
It’s still nice that he’s learned
The art of the single entendre.
