If you're a regular reader, by now you're aware that I'm a little pop culture stoopid. I don't keep up with all the latest fads and music. It may get my gay card revoked, but I'll admit that I still haven't listened to Lady Gaga's latest song - and it's not a priority for me.

I'd seen on social media that both Katy Perry and Sara Bareilles have new songs out and they're pretty similar. I love mashups so when I saw a link to a mashup of "Roar" and "Brave," I thought I'd give it a click. It stars two cute former Voice contestants - Nathan Parrett and a young gentleman called Pip who I can only assume got his name from a mother that instinctively knew he'd grow up to look like the illegitimate love child of Chris Hayes and Peter Pan.

My virginal ears hadn't heard either tune before when I hit play to the mashup. I had no idea which song was which except for the lines where they used the actual words "roar" and "brave." Holy cow.

I'm sure that you've likely heard them both before, but if you haven't, I put both videos after the break. I was amazed listening to the first minute or so of both songs. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

I'm going to go watch I Love Lucy and Leave It To Beaver reruns on the talky box now while you children go out and play. Wear a sweater.

Katy Perry: Roar

Sara Bareilles: Brave
