better bubblegum judgement

bubblegum pop is always against my better judgement but then so is fancying girls, so that’s no reason not to like ‘chewing gum’ by norwegian synth pop popette annie. still, i’m being tentative by posting this video:

straight from 2004 with some truly class lyrics, my favourite of which are:

  • “it makes me smile and keeps my teeth clean”
  • “i think you think your chocolate when your chewing gum”
  • “is that a new boy stuck on your shoe?”

let’s call it synth-pop and pretend it’s cool. besides, it only got to number 25 in the uk chart, so it’s hardly mainstream. you can download this little pink bubble of pleasure here.
