Faking It - The Diary of a Psuedo Rocker

Over Sashimis and Maki’s my best friend accuses me of being a faker. Her theory of course is stemming from her mistaken belief that I love pop music and claims otherwise so as not to belittle the press release that I am into alternative rock and of late some indie rock.

So this is an open letter to Dear Best Friend (hehe peace man)

I never said I do not like pop music. By mere definition, pop music is of/by popular choice. It is mainstream and definitely catchy. I would bop my head for sure when Mmmbop plays on the radio. Even sing along many Boyband songs over Karaoke. And yes, my secret shame was that when I was 13 I went to watch a 98 degrees concert! :( But this is not to say that these kind of songs are my favorite choices.

I think I am one of those silly people who place such a huge emphasis on music in their lives. Seriously! I have a song for every momentous event or depressing state of my existence. Listen to Nirvanna and Live when I am depressed. To Ben Folds and K’s Choice, when I am sad. To U2 and Lifehouse, when I am in love, and a lot of poppy rock song when I am happy.
