I seriously think I know like two or three of these songs. Also, something tells me that Spotify was reeeeeally embraced by teenagers.

I’ve been listening to a lot of GWAR, so….. (just kidding, but that would be pretty stellar).  I actually got all into Fiona Apple again last week, which shows what a moody little 90s-lover I am.  But then I got a bit too cry-baby and had to listen to way peppier shit because work was sick of me sniffling at my desk.

..Who the fuck are:

– Jason Derulo

– Wiz Khalifa

– Calivin Harris

– David Guetta

I don’t think I’ve ever heard their names.  My god, I am an old person.


Also, John Mayer, really?  Is he doing stuff now?  Huh.  The moreeee yooouuu knoooooowwww!!!!!!!
