Because you know I’m all about that bass

Once again, I find myself extremely late to the party, but I can’t help myself: I really like Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass”.

I’m sure you’ve heard it before. It’s playing everywhere – either the original or one of the innumerable parodies that are floating around.

I like it because:

1) like most people, I see it as a positive song. Basically, she’s saying you’re perfect, even if you’re not a size zero, which is a refreshing and much needed message.

and also

2) I genuinely am “all about that bass”…by which I mean I flippin’ love bass lines and bassists and even the word “bass”. BASS!

Plus, I like that old-school “doo wop” vibe – that’s one of the reasons I listen to Olly Murs.

As if those weren’t decent enough reasons, there’s this amazing tidbit: actor Ed Westwick took advantage of the song’s popularity and his Gossip Girl character’s lasting impression and created a hilarious shirt with proceeds going to charity:

Let’s be real, Chuck Bass was far and away the best part of Gossip Girl (especially the later seasons).
