SPB: What is the best pop song of the past 10 years?
Kindon: I typed up a whole thing about “Crazy In Love” by Beyoncé (feat. Jay-Z), then realized that song came out in 2003, more than 10 years ago. Which brought on a certain clarity about the fact I’m A) old as shit and B) I don’t care very much about pop.
I’m going with “Pursuit Of Happiness (Extended Steve Aoki mix)” by Kid Cudi. Let’s talk about this beast of a teen house party anthem! You got Kid Cudi NEVER using a word over a 2nd grade reading level! Your nephew could’ve written this, except he probably doesn’t have the life experience to make his content as dark as Cudi who spends this dance remix talking about driving drunk and waking up in cold sweats. Fuck, bro! This makes me wish I drank, because I’d so hold a red Solo cup over my head while THE BEAT hits my body! Time to grind on that sophomore from that class I don’t attend! Fuck. I love this song. I’ve never heard another Kid Cudi song, but if all of them have these fun-as-shit WalMart beats and suicide talk, I’m in.
