where did the summer song go?

because we are all too appalled to step beyond the horror that is TomKat, it's almost easy to forget the fact that it's summer and there is no summer song.

now you may find me utterly superficial, but hey, life is too short. There should be a catchy song for you to enjoy. One that lifts you from the smog and heat of summer in the city. Kelly Clarkson's "Since U been gone" is too old for this status, but it might have to do. This is pathetic.

Whatever happened to the early 90s when there were songs so horrific but catchy that you couldn't keep them out of your head (much less your mouth)?

Everyone is so busy reading about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and waiting to watch Lindsay Lohan overdose that we aren't getting down to the serious business of summertime: good tunes.

I blame all of this on Mary-Kate Olsen and her 2004 summer meltdown. Damn her and her bad fashion. Bring on the tunes! And those Simpson sisters do not count. Am I going to have to resort to Hilary Duff for summer music? It's a sad day when it comes to that, but I may have to end up binging on some serious summer girl cheese films. Katie Holmes, you too are to blame.

This is why there is classical music. "Boogie Oogie Oogie," for example. Keeps you going.

seriously--i knew it was bad when i was kind of grooving to the hillary duff song in the background of _the perfect man_ preview. i heard n'sync may be back. the days of "bye bye bye" et al. were so filled with guilty goodness, it makes me truly sad. and i too feel responsible when i get excited over a lindsay cover on _us_.

anyway, love me
yes i have a blog--don't tell anyone, 'kay?

yay! you have a blog. be proud.

yes, i have heard rumors of the n'sync reunion. as long as we don't have to listen to cameron diaz on backup...

i think if i have to make a decision, my summer song is "entertain": sleater-kinney. i wish i had it in me to go see them on thursday night, but i'm not in the mood for expensive tickets and crowds.
