Gotta have pop

My daughter's "alternative" credentials are just this side of impeccable — she once managed a death-metal band, fercryingoutloud — but there are tell-tale cracks in the façade.

Last night she told me about her new favorite track, which turns out to be "Tired of Being Sorry" by Ringside. I gave it a listen, and it's indeed compulsively listenable, but it's also about as "alternative" as, God help me, "Reach Out of the Darkness".

Seduced by pop, and by the light side of pop at that. It could happen to you.

Tell me about it. I'm still listening to Faith Hill's "This Kiss". Indescribably infectious.
