I’ve got this cool, down to earth hipster friend who married a total yuppie. Like a J. Crew wearing, West Elm/Crate & Barrel buying, Kate Spade toting, tea-towel monogramming, designer hand soap buying yuppie. And I was thinking about her today, and wondering what type of music she probably listens to…since my friend has great taste in music (being a hipster), and, well, who knows about her. So, I googled “Yuppie Music”, and found a list of the “Top Ten Yuppie Anthems,” of which this song is number four (Ryan Adams made the list at number two, but I won’t hold it against them).
I love The Shins — seen em two or three times live, and I love this song, despite it being made so popular by the film Garden State. Anywayz (haha), I really thought the title of the song says it all. Caring is creepy. It’s creepy that I even wondered what this girl is listening to. Who cares! So this is my confession that I’ve been acting kinda creepy, and my commitment to care only about the music I love from this moment on.
