I’ve decided to come out, unashamed and wide-eyed in the world, and declare that I am a nerd who loves the wonky pop genre. I don’t know if there is more than one band currently residing in this genre, but that one band has forever embedded their song 10,000 Nights firmly in my head:

My already dwindling punk rock cred has all but dried up as a result of this, I’m sure. The above-linked band, Alphabeat, try to define wonky pop in this video. It’s apparently a mix between Michael Jackson and The Beatles.

I hear a heavy Wiggles influence, personally.
