Talk about! Pop music…pop, pop, pop music…

I just can’t get away from this pop music thing.

These youtube videos, featuring random strangers in big cities being asked what songs they’re listening to, are INCREDIBLY cool to me. My favorites are Singapore:

and my semi-hometown, Denver;

A long, slowly growing list of these videos can be found here.

A few things I noticed:

Big cities are super diverse. DUH, but still…they are. Was not expecting to see so many non-Asian folks in Singapore…or non-Scandinavians  in Stockholm. Hmmm…

Wiz Khalifa and Lady Gaga are, literally, EVERYWHERE. Every single video seems to feature Black and Yellow. That’s kinda unexpected.

English-language pop music blatantly dominates the world market. Even the people who blatantly didn’t speak English were often listening to English language songs. Still, given my recent obsession with kPop, I think it’s telling that 2NE1 popped up a few times too.

Anyway, that’s all for now. Blog title comes from here

Peace!
