take your pick:

people who heard "We Are Young" on the radio and have the whole album now
people who have never heard of The Format
people who don't know this is fun.'s second album

it's not meant to be derisive; I'm talking about my friends

people who have never heard of the format aren't necessarily "normal people"

Yeah, I'm sure there's tons of strange people out there who haven't heard of The Format.

I can't believe "normal" people are getting into a pop-rock album!

you are all ridiculous for goading me about my use of the word "normal." normal music listeners are people who don't actively seek out and find bands like fun. without some help from the radio...people who would have never known about them if their single wasn't luckily high on the iTunes charts...the same people who ignored Aim and Ignite even though it was just as catchy and fun (PUN!) ((RHYME!!!)) to listen to, because they don't dig just a LITTLE to find something they would really enjoy.

and @thesafeword, there was no amazement in my comment. I know that there's tons of people who would like music they don't normally hear. it's just nice that they're getting into it because I can listen to one of my favorite records a little more.

I'd probably use the "average" music listener instead of "normal".

I understood what you were trying to say. People on this site are just nit picky for no reason.

sorry man, awful thing to happen. remembered a friend of mine who related so much to the "was it worth it when you slept with him" part of Dog Problems.
