The A to Z of Pop - Z is for Zombocalypse

The A to Z of Pop
by Jo Michelmore

Finally, here we are at the last letter in the A to Z of Pop and what have we learnt in the previous letters of the alphabet, dear readers? Amongst other things, we have learnt that Ed Sheeran is not very good, contrary to popular opinion the 90s had some bad bits as well as good bits, sometimes I can get a little political, personal and a little bit Cher, sometimes even I can make a Simpsons reference and sometimes being a blogger is really hard work, which is why I used the same idea twice. WTF?

We're going to end the A to Z with a little advice, because, well, we all know it's gonna happen sooner or later and my fellow bloggers, friends and I have a lot of theories about what we're going to do when it arrives. I figure since pop music can give us the answers as to how to mend a broken heart and how to party like it's 1999, it can give us the answers as to how we survive the impending zombocaplypse as well.

Surviving zombocalypse part one: if we take the advice of Robbie Williams, we simply dance in front of said zombie girls. We also have to strip. Not just our clothing. I'm not sure the advice of Robbie will help.

Surviving zombocalypse part two: If we take the advice of RIP Michael Jackson, we simply engage with said zombies and dance. With them. 'Cause they can't resist the catchy beats, apparently. I'm not sure the advice of RIP Michael will help.

Surviving zombocalypse part three: Ask our Korean friends what to do. I'm not 100% sure, but with a song called 'Lovey Dovey' I'm thinking T-ara would like us to seduce said zombies. Either that or we take them to a club and dance. I'm not sure the advice of T-ara will help.

Surving zombocalypse part four: Of course, how obvious. When all else fails, turn to Kanye. Do we offer Kanye as some kind of zombie sacrifice in order to save us all? Maybe. Sorry Kanye, but you know, zombocalypse and all. And the sacrifice of Kanye saves pop music in general. Well, I know at least one of my fellow bloggers who would agree. I'm not sure my advice will help.

Kanye sacrificed and that brings us to the end of the A to Z of Pop, but you know he'll appear somewhere else again, 'cause it's just the way things are around here. Thanks y'all for sticking with me through a whole heap of letters, a whole heap of pop and a whole lot of my ridiculous thoughts, opinions and words. Join me next year for another A to Z?
