Justine Dorsey‘s Salinger is everything you could ever want from a pop song. Clever, witty, original and has the best damn chorus you’ll hear this year. Check out this crazy good song by this promising (and delivering) rising star:

Salinger

Lyrics

I’m not much for sunglasses indoors
But I can’t deny your shaded smile
That’s why I left
You can’t resist
I knew you’d follow me
You accidental devotee

Sidewalk conversations
Sparkling declarations
Of passions shared and moments lost
Don’t let this one join ‘em all
‘Cause I’d be happy here forever
Sixties jeans and a cableknit sweater
You with the car waiting, under the gun
And me with my Salinger under my arm

The posters in my room
Are like mirrors for you
You’ll fade eventually
But let’s not worry
Who says that growing up
Is true for everyone
I’m perfectly content
Denying our descent

Sidewalk conversations
Sparkling declarations
Of when we met and loves we lost
Don’t let this one join ‘em all
‘Cause I’d be happy here forever
Traffic jams in L.A. weather
Time is a-calling, we’re under the gun
I’ve got my Salinger under my arm

Take a picture
It won’t last long
Left my paperback on the dashboard
Take a picture
It won’t last long
Left my paperback on the dashboard

Starside conversations
Left for my imagination
Next summer you’ll have a job
And I’ll be sitting on my lawn
Reading Catcher in the Rye
Wearing my sunglasses outside
I’ll go to my room and I’ll still have ‘em on
Tucking my Salinger under my arm.
