this is my favourite song right now, i’ve been listening to it about ten times a day. so catchy, so sassy.

Some friends of mine were tweeting about this earlier today. I don’t know why but watching it just improved my mood significantly.
hey have I bugged you to listen to Said The Whale yet? yes? listen to this then. might be the cutest video you’ll watch all year.
“Loveless” || Said The Whale || Little Mountain (2012)
This is beyond cute.
Miley Cyrus - Jolene
Miley Cyrus can… sing…?
I’ve said this a couple times- Miley Cyrus is going to make an album in about 5 years that’s going to blow us all away.
I’d be thrilled with Miley Cyrus making legitimately good music. It’s about time for pop music to stop sucking again. I think that’s how pop music works, it’s cycles though shitty decades and great decades.
This is a great version of this song, and it is one of my favourite songs! What is it with me and pop-country anyhow?
Wait until you guys realize I own not one but TWO Dixie Chicks tour DVDs…
She’s 23. She was a teenage girl making music for young/teenage girls. I’m calling misogynistic bullshit on the general perception of her.
She’s not 23, she’s only 20 years old. But I agree. She’s always been talented - I’ve been a fan even since the Hannah Montana days - but when you start off as a Disney kid it can be difficult to break out of that image.
