XY Unlimited “Carmen”

Think about all the ridiculously cheesy power pop songs you’ve ever heard: “Jessie’s Girl,” “Stacy’s Mom,” etc. Now you can add XY Unlimited‘s new track “Carmen” to that list. The track starts off with this lyrical gem: “there’s this girl I kind of know/she works at Trader Joes/and every time I go/I’m hoping she might be there.” The track just evolves from there. The song is ridiculously poppy and catch but the lyrics are laughable at best but cringe-inducing most of the time.
