Wifey Wednesday: Club Edition? Justin Bieber ft. Ludacris, Avicii vs. Lenny Kravitz, Nina Sky, AlunaGeorge (Bondax Remix) + Gotye (Chuck Inglish Remix)
You know how it is, girls just wanna have fun. They like pop music and that pointless up-beat shit. I can’t really be mad at that though. Some of it actually takes me away from my usual deep state of conscious realization of how fucked up everyone/everything is. So is it really pointless music or does it in fact serve a very important purpose? As indirect (and probably ineffective for that matter) as it may be, does pop music actually make our world a better place by uplifting our women’s spirits, which in turn forces us men to pretend to be in a good mood so that ultimately we get what we want from them? I’m half kidding. Well, not about pop music making the world a better place; that I’m whole kidding. In all seriousness though, this shit does actually do a good job of bringing about a better mood. Wifey included, of course.
Did the Biebs release this album yet? Either way, I gotta believe (you like what I just did there?) this one is gonna blow the fuck up. But by me sharing this
illegal free download, I feel as though I am contributing to the “save a young talented dude from becoming an overly rich, arrogant, condescending douchebag fund.” Well, maybe that’s unfair to assume. It never happened to Justin Timberlake. But just like the difference between MJ coming up in the 90’s and Lebron coming up in today’s new instantaneously needy social media and news era, it’s a whole new level of exposure and ludicrous (boom. 2 for 2) adoration famous people have to survive through. And let’s be clear on one more thing; JB, regardless of his insane level of future fame all around the world (stop it!), will never be the OG JT. Just like LBJ, regardless of the rings he will win at some point, will never be MJ.
This is a jam, plain and simple. Starts out slow, but give it a second and let the beat build biiiiiiiiitch. (sidenote: remember when Lil Wayne didn’t suck?). The Lenny sample is pretty key. Did I mention how much I hate strictly instrumental club jams? That’s right. Deadmau5 does about as much for me as Cameron Diaz or Reese Witherspoon. Not a whole lot.
Where the fuck has Nina been? Welcome back, I think? I don’t know, I haven’t really been paying attention. But nice lil joint here.
Download: Nina Sky – Heartbeat
This one should be in an Arby’s commercial or something; good mood music. I can do without some of the distortion, but lovin the piano portion, of course.
This one isn’t as hype as the rest, and maybe doesn’t fit so well under the “club” mantra. But I have heard the original song played at bars, which is really weird and kind of depressing. I mean, I like the song too, but at least play the Chuck Inglish version or another more up-beat remix. Thank you in advance. Err, you’re welcome?
