This month’s song is also by Bleachers. Will I end up buying this album song by song? Time will tell.
I read somewhere that this album is inspired by 80s movies and this song really captures the feeling of some of those movies, like the ones John Hughes made.
I’ve just watched the video for the first time. It was very 80-esque. I found myself amused at the very WASP-y, classic ice queen beauty playing the object of Jack Antonoff’s affection. Mostly because in real life he’s with incredibly normal looking Lena Dunham. Anyway, I think the twist at the end is the “rollercoaster” part. Also, I think you could do some sort of physics assignment to figure out how fast the van was going when they were playing on top of it.
Also in the running: Adele’s “When We Were Young”, which I like much more than “Hello”, but don’t hear as often. I’m buying that song too. I think I first heard this on regular reader Kathleen’s blog.
Of note: for most of this month, the song on endless repeat in my head was Vance Joy’s “Riptide.” I have no idea why as it has been out for a long time. I don’t like or dislike that song, but I really didn’t need to be on endless loop in my head.
