When you had to pay at least a little bit of attention to music to know who Adele was.
There’s no denying she’s friggin’ great. She is. And I’m not saying I was one of those people like my wife who knew her first album inside and out. I’m a Top-40 guy through and through, not a cool hipster who’s up on everything three months before everyone else.
However, I’m beginning to feel like my radio has decided “Someone Like You” and “Rumour Has It” are the president and first lady of pop, with the role of Joe Biden being played by “Rolling in the Deep” and “Set Fire to the Rain” as John Boehner. And it gets especially odd to hear a vocalist as gifted as Adele bookended by a group like LMFAO, who, incidentally, may have the most accurate name in the history of music, as I, too, would be Laughing My Fucking Ass Off if I got paid to say “Girl, look at that body, I work out.”
Are we sure one of those guys isn’t The Situation?
I guess what I’m trying to say is that I think I’m burned out on Adele, which is sad because she is far more talented than many of the artists who are currently commanding my attention when I flip through the channels.
What do you think? Am I losing it?
For the record, I’m asking if I’m being crazy just in this instance, not life in general. I don’t think I want to hear the answer to that one.
