Dear Future Husband
by Meghan Trainor
Album: Title (available now)
I stumbled across Meghan Trainor’s next single, ‘Dear Future Husband’ on the radio earlier in the week. I didn’t think much of it, it sounded exactly like a Meghan Trainor song, which all sound like any pretend doo-wop song, but not as good as a real doo-wop song. My blog, my opinion. I heard it again yesterday and I really listened to it this time.
My hackles were raised (what’s a hackle anyway?) and everything got all sorts of annoying. Why? Because...
“I’ll be the perfect wife, buying groceries…”
Without mentioning the whole concept of the feminist movement, name me another good pop song that mentions groceries.
“And after every fight, just apologise…even if I’m wrong”
With that kind of attitude, you ain’t getting yourself a husband, wife or housemate anytime soon Meghan. No one likes self-righteousness.
And one last thing...
“Open doors for me and you might get some kisses”
Why do you need doors opened for you Meghan? I’ve seen your clips and I’m pretty sure you have two arms in perfectly good order. Open your own doors, because you can, and open them for others, because you’re a nice person, not because of rewards.
I'm exhausted. Someone put some Taylor on so I know pop music isn't dead.
