My Music Monday

"Modern Girl" from the Bleachers has been pre-released for months now, with formidable airtime given in satellite radio. 

Usually, skreachy (sp?) saxophone is a huge turn-off for me when it comes to music. The sax is a harsh instrument most of the time and normally not utilized well. 

"Modern Girl" is seemingly no exception, though it somehow kinda works.  

Kind of!

If I break the song down, I would say there isn't much to like about it. It's a bit pedestrian to even have a line saying "the modern girls....shakin' their ass tonight". It internally makes me cringe at reducing women that way. 

Honestly, I don't know what modern women do. I just assume they're move evolved than that, but perhaps not. 

That all said - the song is infectious in its own way. In spite of my above criticisms, I don't think I've ever turned off the song when it comes on. It's catchy.
