I guess I just like liking things

I was driving the other day and Sara Bareilles’ song “Brave” came on. I like the song so I was singing along a bit. I must’ve zoned out a little bit, because after a while I realized I was singing along to Katy Perry’s “Roar.” Now, I did not imagine “Brave,” it really was on. It’s just that at some point “Brave” ended and “Roar” came on. I’ll never be able to prove it, but I suspect some wisenheimer put something together that segued from one to another to make a point.

There was a minor flap when Katy Perry released “Roar” over its similarity to “Brave,” but these things tend to be more coincidences rather than conspiracies. They are similar both in sound and in message, but I’d never heard them one right after the other before. It amused me to realize what had happened.

Don’t take my word for it, judge for yourself:

Two Mondays in a row with Katy Perry stuff? Weird.
