Rachel Bloom: Top 5 Songs That Aren’t on the Radio (But Totally Should Be)

I think pop music is ridiculous. But when I say “ridiculous,” I don’t mean that as purely pejorative; pop music is ridiculously fun, ridiculously catchy, and, at this point, ridiculously self-aware of how ridiculous it is. But, pop music is also ridiculous in that most of it portrays a singular type of lifestyle: going to clubs, dating hot 21 year-old models, rhyming “kosher” with “fo’ sure.” Pop music is “for the masses,” yet it only represents the lifestyle of a select group of people. For the past 3 years, I’ve been doing comedic pop music videos with the overall thesis statement of, “Pop music says life is one thing, but this is a song about how life really is.”
