Ok, so this isn’t exactly a really deep thinking post but here’s just been something that I really need to get off of my chest.
What is up with this song?
The title is “Stuck like glue” by the band Sugarland, and for some reason it has me confused and intrigued. To be clear, it’s not because it’s basically a standard early 90’s pop song that’s being played on country stations. That’s been happening for years now. It’s not even because it’s got an incredibly corny video. It’s not even the fact that it’s got a relatively catchy tune and won’t leave me alone….and that’s just annoying.
The part that is just very confusing to me is when she, all of a sudden, breaks out into this weird reggae rap part of the song. (The weirdness starts at about 2:24) At one moment she’s a standard twangy pop country singer and the at the next, she’s a black Jamaican. It’s just very confusing.
To recap, this is a pop song, with a reggae break, on a country station……..
I just don’t understand. If someone understands what’s going on, fill me in.
Oh well, just one more of life’s little mysteries.
