More than one this month to make up for the fact that I haven't changed the song in the sidebar since April, whoops.
July is going to be the month of songs-which-I-originally-didn't-really-like-but-then-actually-grew-on-me.
La Roux - Bulletproof
I thought this was crap at first, especially compared to how In For The Kill was dead good, especially the Skream's Let's Get Ravey remix (Seriously now, listen. It's amazing. And don't be misled by the name, it is completely the opposite of "ravey")
Buuut, now I actually quite like it and find myself humming it all the bloody time, possibly annoying other people at work, as I hum somewhat tunelessly it has to be said...
Jordin Sparks - Battlefield
Again, hated this and though it was rubbish, but now I like when it comes on the radio. Although every time I hear it I can't help but think of the scene in 13 Going on 30 where Jennifer Garner and the little kids dance around in their pajamas singing "Love is a battlefield" by Pat Benatar..
Jamie T - Sticks 'n' Stones
Never been a big fan of Jamie T, and I frequently just find him quite annoying, but everyone seems to full on love him and Sheila still gets played a fair bit both on the radio and in clubs so it's usually a case of grin and bear it. First time I heard Sticks 'n' Stones I thought it was the world's most irritating song, but again, it's grown on me.. hurrah?
This doesn't usually happen to me, the whole songs-growing-on-me thing, so it's a bit puzzling. I'm going to blame the fact that I've started listening to the radio, namely Radio 1, again now I'm home from (radioless) uni, and they play about the same 4 songs over and over and over all day long it would seem.
I conclude that the BBC is trying to brainwash us..
