Apparently there is a problem with pop music. People say it’s inane, stupid and vacuous. Perhaps they are right. Perhaps they are wrong. Let’s see:
This #FridaySongs competition is all about educated and intelligent pop. Find tracks that use words longer than two syllables, bands with clever names and clever lyrics, music videos so deep that you cannot touch the bottom, or anything that makes you think harder than a third-grader.
Find your selection on YouTube, post it in the comments section, and we’ll play it at full blast.
The winners will be selected using a highly-refined automated algorithmic system, then voted upon, and graded by a professor from Rhodes University. The winner will be too clever to join us for a beer on The Balcony.
