My Favorite 4 Minutes of Music: 9/15/2045: "Golden" by Travie McCoy featuring Sia

Now that both the Taylor Swift and Kelly Clarkson/Pentatonix concerts have passed, I have been able to take 1989 and Piece by Piece off repeat and actually revisit the world of current pop music.  Thanks go Songza's "Today's Pop Hits" station, I've recently discovered some great new songs.  One of which has prompted me to resuscitate "My Favorite 4 Minutes of Music" here on my blog.

You need to listen to this song for no other reason than the lyric "She's my Patty Mayonnaise to my Doug Funnie".   Because that lyric is everything.

Past that lyric, the song is really enjoyable.  The catchy hook sung powerfully by Sia in combination with the creative verses provided by Travie McCoy creates some delicious pop snackage.  The video is equally as enjoyable to watch, playing some visual tricks that make you question what you just saw as if its all in one take.  Two thumbs up for both the song and the video!
