Insufferable POP

insufferable.jpg

Sorry, kiddo, I don’t know what to tell you.

The POP on this afternoon’s Pop Goes The World show will be relentless.
Dare I say….insufferable, even.
Enough minor chords, and pop hooks to choke even the most jaded of cynics.
I apologize in advance for the unabashed joy, and giddiness this music might suddenly bring you. I know how some of you are quite averse to stuff like that.
(My condolences.
Truly.)
