Nerdy Pop Culture Property Song

from "B​-​Sides" & "Rarities" by Sarah Shay

about

A song about being a nerdy musician, and the temptation to pander. Written in 2014, so the references are a bit dated...but the struggle remains real.

lyrics

Hey!
You guys like stuff, right?
And you like stuff about the stuff you like
So if I sing about the stuff you like
Would you like that too?

You like Star Wars, right?
Han totally shot first
I only watch the first three
'cause the prequels were so trashy
But the new Disney stuff might be alright
(Shit, you're losing them!)

Hey!
You guys like stuff, right?
And you like stuff about the stuff you like
So if I sing about the stuff you like
Would you like that too?!

How about Doctor Who?
He's a madman in a big blue box
Fighting Cybermen and Daleks
Sometimes blowing shit all to heck
But - I mean - he always tries to do - the right - crap

Arrested Development!
Uh..something about illusions not tricks
And there's a banana stand, and a muscle suit
And...David Cross blows himself?
Aw shit, I blew the joke
I don't know what I expected.

Hey!
You guys like stuff, right?
And you like stuff about the stuff you like
So if I sing about the stuff you like
Then you'll like that too

If I keep singing about pop culture
I know I just can't lose
I gotta keep up with that pop culture
If I ever wanna get on JoCo Cruise

Hey!
You guys like stuff, right?
And you like stuff about the stuff you like
So if I sing about the stuff you like
Will you like that too?
Will you like that too?
Would you like me too?
