Response to "Telephone" w/ Lada Gaga and Bionca

For those not familiar with “Telephone,” the premise of the tune is that LG and B, are not going to answer their phones, because they are busy dancing, partying etc. They clarify that it’s not that they don’t like you, they’re just busy. So ya know, stop “telephone-in me…”

My first thought is that this topic has got to be one of the most superficial and useless topics I’ve ever heard. The only thing that would be more ridiculous would be a song about not “poking” someone back on FB. Whatever.

Then I thought, “Maybe this song isn’t shallow, maybe it’s intimate.” Maybe it so closely resembles the experience, concerns and topics of interest of her general audience that it perfectly “speaks to them,” addressing a very common, very shared situation.

Huh.
