I want black satin sheets . . .

Stunning song and vid. Female pop stars and R&B singers are a dime a dozen, but female rock stars are a unique breed. Who can you think of? Ain't many, Pink pulls it off. I could do without Pink making out with herself, but every other aspect of this vid, the fashions and everything, was delicious. Cool that she was rolling around with herself on black satin sheets, tho. Black satin sheets . . . way more provocative than skin . . . :)

What a chick ditty!

"Love Story" by Taylor Swift. This music video has it all . . . a castle, princess dresses, a ball, a Pride and Prejudice setting, a midnight tryst, the lovers running across a field towards each other across other (guy bare-chested) . . . there's even a silver pony! I love it! This vid prompted me to coin "chick ditty." Check out my definition for it at http://www.urbandictionary.com

Lyrical themes . . .

Lyrically speaking, who agrees?

Pop music = romance
Rock music = rebellion
Hip-Hop = pride-in-your-stride
Singer/Songwriter = storytelling
Country = storytelling + romance

Funny how certain lyrical themes just sound best with certain sounds. I used to turn my nose up at "ooh-baby"ish lines, but, as someone who writes pop-ish music, that's where I've ended up and I'm cool with it. Pop music sounds best when it's light and sweet. Unless your a genius like Eminem and you know how to break the rules. Not me.
