I’m loving that my company is stanning my mother by playing FOUR songs from her new album Chromatica (Stupid Love, Rain On Me, Free Woman, and now 1000 Doves) :)

I literally stopped dead in my tracks when I heard it and I was like "wait.. no.. THEY DIDN'T.."
They did.

The instore audio network at my previous job plays it too.

Have any of you looked up information on the song? It was apparently a huge hit for them and the reasoning behind it is informative. It is not meant to glorify violence, but shine a light on mental illness and what would drive a young person to such violence.

And I still don't get the Boomer insult. The song hasn't been banned or anything. Is it some well-known fact that people ages 56 to 76 make the Target music playlists?

She was making a joke that Target is run by old people who are out of touch, yes.

Yes, I'm well aware that it's not meant to glorify violence. That does not stop it from being a school shooter anthem.

kinda sounds like Gary Jules singing? I can't find anything x_x

There's a song I heard today and could have sworn it sounded like the B52s and now I can't find it anywhere. If not them, it was definitely something 80s. Anyone know what song it might be? I know that's not much to go on, lol.

Is it just me, or in the High Horse song, does it sound like she’s singing “you and your whores”? I can’t be the only one who hears that.
