WHY DOES EVERYTHING ON THE RADIO SOUND LIKE LA BOUCHE?

It seems we've hit a time warp and we're back in 1994. Or at least that's what you'd gather from listening to the radio. Yeah, I know. You probably don't listen to pop radio. But I do. This isn't a complaint, just an observation. But we're back in euro pop/disco clubland all over again.

You don't believe me? You don't care? Either way...













Ok, so now we've got better drum machines and synths, but hot damn if it isn't pretty much the same thing. And to think you thought the tandem of Nirvana/hip-hop had terminated this stuff, or at least relegated it to the club/dance music ghetto?
Wrong. Now it's back in full force on top 40 clear channel coast to coast. Your little brother/sister is probably bobbing along in the mirror to this as we speak, if not yourself. I wonder if there's any link between europop/dance music becoming popular during recessions? Calling all sociologists.
What a joke! This will always be around. As long as there are mesh tank tops, Redbull, hair gel and Long Island, this type of music will always exist. Got any poppers/GHB?

Now's the time in Sprockets when we dance.
