1 February 2013 - Miranda Cosgrove - Dancing Crazy

Sometimes, I'm even embarrassed to say I like a song.  But, this is Wicked Guilty Pleasures, right?

Miranda Cosgrove is best known as the titular Carly from the Nickelodeon television show iCarly.  I'm a little sad that I know that.  Like that show, this song is harmless, lighthearted fun. But it's more than that.  It's well-constructed, with a lot of different-sounding sections that all remain equally danceable.  She might have a long career in entertainment ahead of her.

Oh, and she ain't the best singer in the world - I get it.  That's not what this blog is about. She's not bad, though. Proof: here she is live, complete with a couple of pitchy spots.  It happens, but she holds it together, by not bailing on the song.  Even in the rough spots - mostly at high notes - she retains her stage presence and engages the audience.

And, since we're talking about iCarly, here's the famous Spaghetti Tacos scene. Enjoy.
