Following in the steps of recent novelty hits like Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” and Psy’s “Gangnam Style” – DJ duo The Chainsmokers’ “#SELFIE” is currently increasing in popularity and boy does the song exemplify the sad current state of affairs regarding Generation YOLO or what?!
With great late nights on the dance floor/festival moshpit/crankin house party kinda EDM production and its sad and funny -yet true lines, The Chainsmokers should enjoy a hefty club play and downloads around the world from a generation increasingly loosing the true joys of Life. As for all the self-indulgent, self-centred, attention seeking boys and girls which this song is targeted to I ask you to compare the quotes from this song to a quote The Little Prince once said – “What is essential is invisible to the naked eye” unfamiliar with The Little Prince? then I dare you to say YOLO once again and read the book. #justdoit
“I don’t know if I should go with XX Pro or Valencia
I wanna look tan
What should my caption be?
I want it to be clever
How about “Livin’ with my bitches, Hashtag LIVE”
I only got 10 likes in the last 5 minutes
Do you think I should take it down?
LET ME TAKE ANOTHER SELFIE”
