Recently I was debating with a friend about the need to justify why a specific song is good or bad. She called my bullshit, saying, “If I like it, I like it. I don’t need a reason.”
And god dammit she’s right. Enough with the musical snobbery! If a song makes you move, forces you stop and turn up the speakers, halts all conversation in the car, turns up a drunken dance party to eleven, then fuck it, it’s a jam!
Case and point is Camel Power Club’s “Ourson.” I can’t pinpoint why I love it so much, but it’s jolly, upbeat and gets my toe tappin’.
