Oh dead serious. Did you listen to the song? Sure the Owl City guy did some singing, but Carly Rae just hummed and repeated some words back to him haha! I am floored this is what is popular to so many people haha. To each their own I guess!
haha I guess what I was saying was just that it's surprising to see someone actually bother to say what you said... I was under the impression that it's widely understood that the DIY rock bands get the short end of the stick and there's nothing we can do about it. There's nothing wrong with the industry, just the tastes of the mainstream.
That being said though, I don't think there's anything wrong with liking pop music. People who aren't deeply invested in music are bound to go after what's catchy and accessible, and I don't think they should be faulted for that.
Also, this song is catchy is fuck and I love it.
