Today, I will present to you a story. Something we haven’t done here on JWAB before is post fiction. We’ve never come up with some short stories (not articles) to maybe entertain (or in today’s case, confuse) the audience.

Earworm: “Nothing Like Us” by Justin Bieber

It’s a first, ladies and gentlemen.

The first Justin Bieber song to ever make it to the Earworm category.

A moment of silence for the amount of respect The Big Cheese had for me, because it probably all died in the moment he read the title of this post.

I highly doubt that I’ll be a fan of his work from this moment on, but Justin Bieber does deserve some respect. Gotta admit, he can sing (this is subjective), regardless of how feminine he may sound. Now, his chart topping pop songs are ridiculously irritating, but who are we to talk? He’s rich, has talent (which, again, is subjective), and probably gets more girls in one day than any of us do in a year.

I don’t mind Bieber anymore actually, but I do not like those Beliebers. They’re horrendous. No offense if you are one. But I very much dislike you.

The only reason I’d caught wind of this song at all (again, I don’t follow the Biebz), is because of a few of my favorite YouTubers making covers of the song. I first heard the AJ Rafael and Cathy Nguyen version, then I listened to the JR Aquino rendition, and I didn’t think the lyrics were too tacky, so I decided to give it a listen.

To my surprise, I actually didn’t hate it. In fact, I liked it. It wasn’t stupid, and his voice wasn’t highly annoying for once, so I gave it a chance to settle in my brain.

Soon enough, it joined my Spotify playlist, much to my chagrin.

Anyway.

Here’s the song.

Earworm: “Young Folks” by Peter, Bjorn & John

Oh, lord. I thought I’d gotten this song out of my head AGES ago. But it’s back with a vengeance. Of course, I don’t think this is a bad song at all. It’s just incessant.

I heard it when I was watching a video by John Elerick on YouTube, and it was stuck from there.

WHISTLE IF YOU DARE!
