Lady Gaga

Earworm: Applause – Lady GaGa

I used to not like Lady GaGa.  Not that her music is bad, but they just overplayed her music a few years ago.  But for some reason, when this song came out, I instantly liked it.  Maybe it’s the beat, maybe it sounds a bit different from the stuff that’s been on the airwaves recently.  In any case, this still continues our all female Earworm week, and I did jump from the 80’s  to today’s music.  Enjoy!

Earworm: Sexy Back – Justin Timberlake

I wasn’t much of a JT fan back in the day, but slowly and surely, his music remained popular enough to be replayed on the radio and satellite radio.  Not only does he get airtime, but he was getting screen presence, with a few movies here and there, and his frequent guest spots on SNL.  Hearing his music throughout the years just kinda sank in my consciousnesses, and I slowly transformed from being a hater to being a fan.  He is simply an amazing performer, not just singing, but, his on screen presence is great.  He is this era’s Frank Sinatra (ok, not quite there yet, but, he is becoming a legend in his own right).  Even his new song, ‘Suit and Tie‘, when I first heard it, I was like,  “WTF?!”, then it grew on me, and I hum it a lot, maybe because it does get a lot of play on commercials also, but, it’s not like Bruno, or the Lady Gaga’s.  It does not get over killed, and his song’s are just that much better.

Sexy Back remains my favorite track of his.  Can’t quite figure out why, but it is.
