Music Monday: Pop-up Party

Nothing brings me back to middle school dances like a pop-up video.  They were how I learned to tell the difference between the Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC, where I finally understood who this Slim Shady character was, and where I finally got the appeal of popular music.  (I owe most of this to Jen Wall – Jen, if you’re reading, I’m bringing you my future kids to teach them about music some day!)

My education continued with the latest pop-up video from VH1 – Miley Cyrus’s “Party in the USA,” where I learned:

  • Miley = not really a fan of Jay-Z – he’s too “pop” for her
  • This song was designed to launch Miley’s Wal-Mart clothing line, not to be my summer jam
  • The confetti from this shoot took two weeks to clean up
  • Pop-up videos make everything better.

Check it out here.  What song would you love to see get the pop-up treatment?
