Owl City & Carly Rae Jepsen look bored in “Good Time” video

Good Time - Carly Rae Jepsen

You know, truth be told, I never got the hype behind Owl City. The dude (it’s a dude, right? i.e. not a band?) has a catchy tune here and there, but generally his voice is just unmemorable.

Speaking of unmemorable, how much more generic can “Good Time” be? The song has absolutely no originality whatsoever. Even the adorable Carly Rae Jepsen sounds waaay tooooo robotic in this track.

The video is equally as boring. The dancing, the ‘fun’ moments, the drive to the outdoors — everything looks fake here. Too bad because “Call Me Maybe” was such a good video.

Video premiere: Goin’ In – Jennifer Lopez featuring Flo Rida

Goin' In - Jennifer Lopez featuring Flo Rida

Just like the song itself, the “Goin’ In” video is your typical and generic dance affair. It’s colourful, there is some dancing, and it features a rapper who you may or may not recognize. (It’s Flo Rida in this case, by the way, in case you’re wondering.)

Sure, Lopez looks stunning for a 43-year old, but this video shows absolutely nothing. The choreography is weak, the outfits are a tad predictable, and the set looks okay. Not a big win for JLo.

Marina & The Diamonds

Out of nowhere, Marina & The Diamonds has released a video for “Teen Idle”. The video, a recording of a live performance in London, showcases Marina’s talents in full. Using only a piano and her amazing vocal chops, the songstress wows the crowd and pretty much slays.
