Re: A Good Song

“… this is what you gotta understand: I’m a DJ, and I’ve already established before on Twitter and elsewhere that you gotta know what the difference is between a good song and a bad song. Songs that I consider personally bad are also effective, and songs that I think are great don’t stick. For me, I think it’s a crime that Chromeo is not up there, because their level of pop songs — aw man, it’s everything I could ever want. It isn’t sticking. I want “Jealous” to win [Song of the Summer] so bad, but it’s obvious “Fancy” is pretty much ruling the summer.”

Well crafted pop songs have their own irresistible logic.  Like it or not.
