I've been tagging so many things on my twitter with #TooCoolToDance. You were probably like, another one, I am so over this. I am going to unfollow you.
I feel like I owed you an explanation, because who knows if this song is going to be a hit. It's called “Too Cool to Dance”. It's by this adorable little girl Eden xo. As you can tell she's precious. I'm a little bit obsessed with her, because of how much I love this song. I'm ready for the full length now. It's not a hit, yet, but it will be
I have not listened to any of her work before this song. She was part of some punk rock band that broke up. They were called Shut Up Stella. After that she pulled a Marina and the Diamonds stunt or it really was another band, that was called Jessie and the Toy Boys. After this we transitioned into Eden xo.
One of the songs she released before this is called “White Girl Wasted” and I was like I might need to hear this. I've held off, because it was a canceled song from what was supposed to be her first album This is How Rumors Start.
It might make the new album. We shall see. The way I would describe “Too Cool To Dance” would be new disco. It's cute and adorable. I particularly like the break down before the chorus where she says “It's boring in the VIP, everybody watching me”.
If you read my article a few weeks ago on my favorite albums of 2014 you would know this new disco sound is perfect for me. One of my four favorite albums was the disco inspired Super Critical by The Ting Tings. “Too Cool To Dance” sounds like a more mainstream version of what The Ting Tings were trying to accomplish.
This is a compliment.
They looked at me like WTF are you doing and I was like fuck you back. It was so great mortally embarrassing myself in front of my parents. At least I'm already the disappointment, so this isn't dragging me down anywhere.
