Music Monday: “Primadonna” by Marina and the Diamonds.

I realise this is not particularly new, but I’ve recently been listening to the album Electra Heart non-stop, especially the track “Primadonna”:

I’ve been a big fan of Marina ever since The Family Jewels first came out, and I love this song not only because it’s damn catchy but also because it epitomises what the album as a whole achieves: satirising the shallow elements of pop culture, not through an anarchistic medium such as punk rock but most uniquely through pure bubblegum pop itself.

Also, I can fucking dance to this on Canal Street, so that’s quite nice.
