Trying to get a lot done today and this is one of the songs powering me through all the work on my plate. 

How dare all of you. And by all of you, I mean me. How could I have forsaken this? How could I have been so blind? Have I been so far removed from the zeitgeist that I never knew that Carly Rae Jepsen’s EMOTION: Side B was waiting in the wings this whole time? Or was I with the rest of the world in not expecting this work of wonders? 

Good holy Lord of Lords. Maybe it’s my own fault. I’ve not had much of a chance to sit down and pay attention to the little things. The sound of birds in rain. The look of dogs playing in the park. Life never stops; it simply keeps going. And yet. 

In any case, there’s nothing more to say about this. If one LP and one EP from the last two years should exist in the far future, when most media from this age has succumbed to the ash and fire, they should be EMOTION and EMOTION: Side B. All other albums, should they survive, must sit below those two on the charred record shelf of the New World.

(Short version: It’s good!)
