Know Your Enemy

"Musically, lyrically and spiritually – 'Get Lucky' is just horrible. Its manufactured joy comes from a cold, barren place. It's a song for 12.30am in a Square Mile wine bar, stock traders with ties around their coke-sweated heads rubbing themselves up uninvited against the new girl. It's a pink-Stetsoned hen party stampeding over your heart. It's the exact moment in Peep Show when Toploader's 'Dancing In The Moonlight' comes on at a work Christmas party and Sophie shrieks: 'I love this song!'"

Tim Jonze is most assuredly not a fan of the single that owned 2013, and if you like it, he's most assuredly not a fan of you either.

An excuse to post another link to this? But of course...

(Thanks to Dave for the link.)
