Have You Heard the Selfie Song?

Is “Selfie” by the Chainsmokers this generation’s “Valley Girl”? 

Or is it the death of EDM, the death of the selfie, and the death of pop culture as we know it? The song is TERRIBLE, and yet, like “Valley Girl,” “Barbie Girl,” “I’m Too Sexy” or even “The Thong Song”  it holds a mirror to who we are as a society and shows us our true selves. This is what we’ve become: A nation of selfie-obsessed bar skanks. “Selfie” may be lacking in wit and have none of the scathing sociological insight of songs like “Valley Girl,” but then that seems about right for this dumbed-down age, doesn’t it. What do you think? Listen to it and tweet me @JSJdarling
