My Boyfriend Reacts to Pop Songs
Song No. 1: "What Do You Mean" by Justin Bieber
It's Justin Bieber. This isn't really something I'd listen to, I think. If this came on the radio, I'd be like, "Eh, not right now." Except "always" is "not right now." It's just awful slow, not really my thing. It's not that I thought the song was bad; I don't know. It's not what I think of when I think of Top 40. I don't even know why it's on the Top 40; it's probably just because it's Justin Bieber.
Song No. 2: "Hotline Bling" by Drake
Really? Really? I don't even listen to the radio, and I know who this is. You can go ahead and turn this off. I don't get it and it's weird. I tried to listen on my own, and I couldn't. It's a lost connection song, and I get that. I like weird stuff, but it's trying to be weird instead of "we're weird and we don't care." It's like back when I was in seventh grade when people were like, "OMG, so random" when you're doing it on purpose. It's the complete opposite. Stop it.
Song No. 3: "Drag Me Down" by One Direction
Is this One Direction? Eh, it's not really my thing. I don't have anything against them; the song, it's just not my thing. I mean, if I turned on the radio for some odd reason I'd be like, "Oh that's the song Chantelle showed me."
Song No. 4: "Ex's & Oh's" by Elle King (Warning: Video is NSFW.)
Her voice is unique. This is something I could listen to. I'd have to listen to more of the artist to determine if I like her, but this song is something I like. I dig this; I could be about this. I don't know if this is something I'd, like, rock out to, but if I heard it on the radio I'd probably be like, "Oh I'm gonna risk my life right now so I can open up Shazam and find out who this is."
Song No. 5: "Black Magic" by Little Mix
This is the kind of song that comes on after a song I like, and I'll be halfway through it before I realize that I don't like it and change the station. This is catchy enough that if I'm not sitting in traffic doing nothing, I probably wouldn't change it. This is bordering on potentially guilty pleasure song. I'll probably catch myself humming this tune just because of the pure catchiness. I don't know who it is, but I assume the song's called "Black Magic." It's what I imagine teenage girls at a sleepover listening to.
