16 August 2013 – Charli XCX – What I Like – over on Wicked Guilty Pleasures

This post is 100% pandering.

You see, THIS POST is the 2nd biggest one we’ve ever had…. by far.  And if you want my opinion, it’s for good reason – Charli XCX is a fantastic talent.  If the year were to end today, her True Romance album would be my hands-down pick for Album of the Year.  I honestly think she’s going to get some Grammy love for her hand in writing “I Love It (I Don’t Care).”

But let’s talk about this video.  It feels a little gratuitously jailbait-y to me.  The song is actually quite a sweet love song, and more mature than a woman who JUST turned 21 two weeks ago (and therefore, this one was written when she was in her teens) should be writing.  But this video…. I feel like I shouldn’t be watching this….

Here is an alternate take of the song, from the Banquet Records performance.  It’s a little more stripped down, but still full of emotion.

The song is great, people.  Call your local pop radio station and REQUEST IT!!!!!!!!
