Ben Lee - I Love Pop Music Lyrics




I love pop music, this is how we do it
It's politics you can romance to
I love pop music, sprinkle sugar through it,
Philosophy that you can dance to

The price of oil is at an all time high and rising (yeah)
Global warming threatens life as we know it on this planet (ohh ooh)
And leaders have not committed to a plan of action on renewable energy
The food crisis is currently affecting a hundred million people world wide

I love pop music, this is how we do it
It's politics you can romance to
I love pop music, sprinkle sugar through it,
Philosophy that you can dance to

Turn up the radio
And sing along, like you're all alone
Turn up the radio
And sing along, like you're all alone

There are over 6 billion people on this planet and not enough fresh drinking water (we're in trouble)
Religious intolerance creating geopolitical instability (shine a light)
Politicians battling each other like professional wrestlers (ooh)
Further division is not the answer, division is not the answer

I love pop music, this is how we do it
It's politics you can romance to
I love pop music, sprinkle sugar through it,
Philosophy that you can dance to

Turn up the radio
And sing along, like you're all alone
Turn up the radio
And sing along, like you're all alone

Turn up the radio

Greed and fear seem to be the driving forces of modern life
We're encouraged to consume and consume with no thought of where it all comes from, and where it all goes
Our lives are accelerating as we fall out of touch with nature and ancient myth
We're desperately in need of a brand new dream

I love pop music, this is how we do it
It's politics you can romance to
I love pop music, sprinkle sugar through it,
Philosophy that you can dance to

I love pop music, this is how we do it
It's politics you can romance to
I love pop music, sprinkle sugar through it,
Philosophy that you can dance to
(Turn up the radio
And sing along, like you're all alone
Turn up the radio
And sing along, like you're all alone)

I love pop music, this is how we do it
It's politics you can romance to
I love pop music, sprinkle sugar through it,
Philosophy that you can dance to
(Turn up the radio
And sing along, like you're all alone
Turn up the radio
And sing along, like you're all alone)

Ben Lee I Love Pop Music Comments
  1. g r o v e r

    last time I hear this was when I was in preschool wow

  2. Alexandra Delliou

    2020: 98

  3. Popmusichater 3

    Pop music is the most fakest “music” genres out there. There using computer beats to make it like a “sound”.

  4. DIKI SAPUTRA

    i love song this...

  5. Rachel Perry

    He writes awsome songs.... this one brightens my day!

  6. Sling Blue-Eyes

    As much as a big message about society is supposed to be shining through here, this isn't Lee's best. The only song bit about it is the chorus. The rest is just talking with no rhyming in it. Disappointing, considering this was from the album after Ripe. But hey, at least What's So Bad (About Feeling Good)? is pretty decent.

  7. Jack Brown

    I had never heard on Ben Lee before, I literally typed I love pop music and this came up, not bad

  8. Rowan Farrell

    Great Job Hope you get a small loan of a million dollars

  9. CommanderNoLif e

    F***ing LOVE this song!

    Stephen Rose

    “Oh shit dat me.”

  10. Jose Bay

    Beat this James Arthur you emo domesticated DAGwood dog

  11. Generation X-Wing Podcast

    Cant tell if I like this or not! Is it being sarcastic? Is he genuine? Great tune but then goes on a School House Rock rant in the middle. I am a fan of his Tornado album. Interesting none the less.

    C J

    School House Rock rant? What remote island do you live on where this information doesn't apply? A decade later and this song still applies.

  16. Naughty Monkey

    The single most pretentious git ever to grace the earth

    NaotaInka

    Someone's a butthurt right-winger.

    Naughty Monkey

    Hahaha! I'm a democratic socialist with discerning taste in music actually. If you want decent music, head to www.facebook.com/adldnb

    @Automated Mike Res ipsa loquitur

  17. Damon Ing

    Great song and video, but is there a higher res version somewhere?

  18. Slow Dogs

    Love this! 100% social freedom!

  19. XBOOFHEADX1

    Filmed in my home town 

    C J

    Is that Rosewood?

  20. Matthew Forbes

    Why do people hate this song so much? If you can't hear the irony in it you must be deaf. 

    Naughty Monkey

    Nope, not a trace of irony. Just a pretentious, self righteous egomaniac in the guise of a pretentious, self righteous egomaniac hipster wannabe.

    C J

    Matthew, it's because people simultaneously have fear and jealousy of happiness and good things. Those people are insignificant losers. Never mind them.

    Sling Blue-Eyes

    I just don't like it because it's only half a song. What should be singing is replaced with normal talking that doesn't rhyme at all.

    Popmusichater 3

    C J jealousy of happiness?? WTF!!!

  21. Tai Isa Taiartatai

    IGNORANCE IS SPREADING

  22. Woble

    I love pop music, this is how we do it
    It’s politics you can romance to
    I love pop music, sprinkle sugar through it,
    philosophy that you can dance to

    The price of oil is at an all time high and rising (yeah)
    Global warming friends life as we know it on this planet (ohh ooh)
    And leaders have not committed to a plan of action on renewable energy
    The food crisis is curently affecting a hundred million people world wide

  23. TheDinoKitteh

    If Ben likes pop music he is a pleb

  24. MrsSaidBouaziza

    I know a girl who would lay him. Whatever his sexuality and she is sexy to boot. Her curves sway to his music. She is sensitive to rhythm and poetry generally. Even I would if I was single.

  25. felixnfun

    I heard this song while I was shopping at Zara in Bologna, Italy and it was so catchy! Many kisses from a new Italian fan Ben :)

  26. Brandon Waters

    This is probably the worst and most annoying song i have ever heard

  27. John Yates

    I don't listen to T Pain at all I never even heard of him until you said it, fatty bum bum!

  28. Chris Steenrod

    yup, fattest around. Sooo fat it would make you jealous. You on the other hand, probably listen to stuff like T Pain and shit like that. Need I say more?

  29. nuramber

  33. John Yates

  36. Andrew Toner

  37. gleeful83

    The bit i like the most is when the bull stepped back and was like WTF!

  38. mahlstadt

    Did anyone else picture Ben Lee being cut down with a machine gun, or is it just me?

  39. Ungulate Junction

  59. Suzi Olsen

    Love this song and love Ben Lee! Please let us know if there the great guy is bringing out any new music because it is awesome!

  60. dogeatme

    Go aussies :P

  61. JoeyPsych

    I don't know why, but I got this in my recommended videos.

    Never heard of Ben Lee, but I like it, keep making nice music, you've got some talent.

  62. Flic W

    i seriously only listened to this crap for missy higgins' beautiful voice lol!

  63. pandaeyes42

    Ben Lee can SUCK MY BALLS!!!

    And Missy Higgins on backing vocals can fuck right off too!!!

  64. opaulo30

    OK. i think I have it figured out. It only seems like poser music at first if you are a terrible cynic. Ben is aware of this and deliberately plays with his own naivette. He is aware that the world sucks, but at least we have a call to action to make things better. It's a weird honor thing you wouldn't expect. It is truly "childlikie", but not as simple as some might think, only more so? I give up. fuck it man, just be happy

  65. tinyshutterbug

    I know there are a few different takes on what the song's meaning is, but I believe it to be very simple: music (or in this case, pop music) is what brings people together (uniting people instead of dividing them, as Ben exclaims, division is not the answer!) - in spite of war, strife and human suffering. "It's politics you can romance to, philosophy you can dance to"

  66. Revell Rehbein

    I love how this isn't staged and he just went around Rosewood to all the locals. :P His music is great. :'D

  67. Christopher Anthony

    these are some good beach listening songs!! :)

  68. Annabelle Lane

    @fgv112 yeah well, regardless of my opinion of Ben Lee, the fact of the matter is he's making piles of money and living his dream, while you're trash talking and spreading homophobia on the internet. Woo, how impressive are you? *sarcasm*

  69. Kyle Boland

    @fgv112 Grow up, and learn to better use the English language.

  70. pandaeyes42

    A lot of pretentious noise!

    And Missy Higgins on backing vocals can fuck right off too!!!

  71. Nic Adamski-O'Toole

    ROSEWOOD i go to school where he is...

  72. FemWillow

    This is a fantastic song!!!! An awesome video! I love that he's playing in the street, but not collecting money, giving flowers and cupcakes to the listeners! LOL! Awesome! Philosophy you can dance to, indeed :) the more familiar I get with Ben, the more I like his music!

  73. Chlo3Random

    wooot rosewood ftw wooot if you know where rosewood is omg i went to rosewood high my friend met ben lee wooot

  74. Frances

    I love his scarf. I really like this song.

  75. abcdefgiorgia

  76. The Space Race Down Under

    Where is your home town?

  77. Jake D

    liberal idiot

  81. Désirée Blizzard

  82. Désirée Blizzard

  83. jlea

  84. Désirée Blizzard

  85. jlea

    yeah this is such a terrible song

  86. Aubrey Taylor

    Kocotini, I noticed that myself. I just had to laugh.

  87. 747thedon

    okay i watch this every month and i read the comments and if i had a dollar every time a read "OMFG that me on the scooter at 2:54" i would be SOOOO RICH and not just on this clip but on all the ones on youtube its piss week

  88. Mario Carl

  91. thetruest

    you're really dense.

  92. jjperceval

    get his name right!

  93. thetruest

    flaccid.

  94. flacco96

    flaccid96? its flacco96. look whos the idiot now dumbass. der der der der

  95. thetruest

    flaccid96: shut up you fuckin idiot

  96. Robert Seiler

    I think he means the ideas expressed. They're in line with some of the things he expresses in liner notes, etc. What may be ironic is whether such thoughts can be marketed in a pop world.

    The musical/rhythmic differences are quite stark. That's telling us something; the question is what.

  97. Joey Uijens

    i want the lyrics XD
