OMG It's Hanna Montana!!!!!

I've long considered myself to be a music snob of the highest regard. I tend to stay away from local radio, listen to angsty and obscure bands, and definitely don't do much buying of CDs (mostly because the bands I prefer to associate my tastes with would never sell out enough to actually
produce CDs...or maybe record labels want no part of them).

But I digress. I've noticed in the last year that I haven't stayed "in the know" as far as music and bands. I'll turn on the radio and catch a couple songs on the way to work, or maybe turn on a little techno internet radio in my office, but beyond that I've been in a silent little world.

I was driving in the car the other day and heard the tail end of a song that caught my attention. It was a sassy girl, with the potential to be slightly angry, but definitely sassy. I looked forward to when we would meet again.

Fast forward to the Fiance and I in the car, innocently driving somewhere or other. The magical song came on. I cautiously admitted that I like the song. It went something like this, "Oh, I think I kind of like this song. I'm not sure who it is, I figure at absolute worst it's Ashlee Simpson". He looks at me slowly, "No, (dramatic pause) I believe it's Miley Cyrus".

BAH! I had mistaken what the absolute worst could be and had somehow ruled out this strange tween phenom, Miley Cyrus/Hanna Montana. I seriously don't know how all this Hanna Montana craziness started, or how her tickets are being scalped for $2,000 a piece.

Just to catch up any rational adult that ignores trends that will in no way make them smarter: Miley Cyrus is Billy Ray Cyrus's 16 year-old daughter and she apparently sings songs that are slightly older than her age. Hanna Montana is (I think) a TV show that started all the madness. She's a student by day, and has a secret alter ego by night that wears a blond wig - Hanna Montana.

Anyway, the moral of the story is that I have somehow been tricked and just downloaded the song. I should have known it was someone really young (and there's really no way to not figure out it's Miley Cyrus) when one of the sections was:

The last time I freaked out,
I just kept looking down,
I st-st-stuttered when
You asked me what I'm thinkin' bout
Felt like I couldn't breathe
You asked what`s wrong with me
My best friend Lesley said
"Oh she's just being Miley!"

To further my mortification I've included photos above of both Miley and Hanna Montana. Additionally, I've linked the title of this post to a site where you can both read the lyrics and hit play on the "Videos and Widgets" box and hear the actual song. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a catchy teen song to listen to a couple more times before putting on my jammies and going to bed.
