Charli XCX - Break the Rules

8/21/2014 Tunes For Loons 0 Comments

Today we present Charli XCX’s latest foray into shameless pop music, “Break the Rules.” While the use of the word shameless may lead you to believe I disapprove of this lady’s music trajectory, I don’t. Pop music rocks, and if you don’t like it you are a dumb person pretending to not. You don’t like ABBA, you say? OK PINOCCHIO. Anywayssss, “Break the Rules” is a poppy gem, and sounds different than other songs previously sung by Charli XCX. Originality points for Griffindor***. Additionally, I appreciate the early 2000s drumming that is present. From the opening notes, I practically thought it was the song that goes aWOO –HOO a million times. Even after she starts singing, I expect the woo-hoos to come in. Finally, to comment on the lyrical content. “I don’t wanna go to school / I just wanna break the rules” Normally I would say boo, but it’s so stupid it’s kind of awesome. Also I want nothing more than to skip skool and break rules, but now I work, and if u do that U GET FIRED. Bummer. 

***Jk, she’s def in Slytherin. Along with anyone else who resembles a Kardashian. The real Kardashians are def squibs tho.
