MAGIC! - Rude
Some songs are instant faves. They appear in your life and you instantly know it’s destined to reach the upper echelons of your “most played” list. That you have to share it with your friends to let them know how it brings joy to your heart and soul.
This song was not one of them. From (surprisingly accomplished) lead singer Nasri Atwehl’s face to his beanie which likely smells like a Phish concert, everything about this song & video turned me into the side-eye emoji. But even though I identify more with the comically stone-faced & Mitt Romney-esque father in the music video (not that I would engage in the anachronistic and patriarchal tradition of giving my daughter permission to marry a tuxedo-tee wearing street urchin), unlike him, I eventually gave in to Nasri’s charms and have been crooning “rude” and making that face and doing that dance-kick-thing all week. Hope it gets you looking like a fool too. Have a great week!
