This song/album got me through some rough times. Always worth a listen when I come across it.
Well, this happened.
The song is called “Good Time” and it’s aggressively optimistic. I can’t say I’m having a very good time listening to it, though. I feel a bit like I’m stuck on the “It’s a Small World” ride at Disney World with a youth group who thinks it’s couth to sing along as loud as they can while yelling about how much good clean fun they’re having.
In fact, I will be surprised if youth groups around the country don’t adopt this as their anthem. It doesn’t specifically mention God but we all know that they can have such a good time without even having to try because they’ve got Jesus on their side. Owl City already has the Christian music background, and if CRJ sounds like a “whoo girl,” it’s only because she’s high on life. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that!)
“Good Time” is offensively inoffensive and will probably be well-received by fans of High School Musical. I need a drink or twelve.
