Song of the Day #1,680: ‘I Love It’ – Icona Pop

icana_popYesterday I was bemoaning the lack of worthwhile new discoveries, and as if in response, the Pazz & Jop poll offered up fun. in spots #14 and #16 with ‘We Are Young’ and ‘Some Nights,’ respectively. Now that’s a new band that has me excited.

In between them sits Icona Pop, who earn the honor of the final spot in my annual recap of the Village Voice poll. This has been a particularly depressing installment, with very little to recommend, so I’m hoping this mystery band will help me go out on a high note.

OK… maybe I’m just looking for a happy ending, but I kind of loved that song. It’s silly, loud, infectious and fun. Sort of like a millennial GoGos. This is a great song to play loud in the car when you’re kicking off a night on the town.

It might be good for nothing but that, but sometimes that’s enough.

Is this the 15th best song of 2012? Not by my count. But I feel better about it being on this list than I do about 11 of the tracks sitting in front of it. I’ll call that a success.

[Hook x2]
I got this feelin’ on this summer day when you were gone
I crashed my car into the bridge, I watched, I let it burn
I threw your shit into a bag and pushed it down the stairs
I crashed my car into the bridge, I don’t care!
I love it, I don’t care!

You’re on a different road I’m in the Milky Way
You want me down on Earth, but I am up in space
You’re so damn hard to please, we gotta kill this switch
You’re from the seventies, but I’m a nineties bitch
I love it! I love it!

[Hook]

I love it, I love it
I don’t care! I love it
I don’t care!

You’re on a different road I’m in the Milky Way
You want me down on Earth, but I am up in space
You’re so damn hard to please, we gotta kill this switch
You’re from the seventies, but I’m a nineties bitch

I don’t care! I love it
I don’t care! I love it, I love it
I don’t care! I love it
I don’t care! I love it, I love it
I don’t care! I love it
