Gonna Get Over You

"Gonna Get Over You" has the potential to be as depressing as any of Adele's songs if it weren't for Sara Bareilles' sunny, catchy beat.  Lord, this video makes me miss L.A.  My friends actually debated whether this video is racist.  One of them, who is from the Eastside of Los Angeles, feels the people in the supermarket, like the cholas, are based on stereotypes.  My other friend argued there are lots of markets in L.A. with everyday shopppers who look like the people in Sara's video. One thing we all agreed on is that "Gonna Get Over You" regardless of the video (which I personally enjoy) is a great song.
