Most New Year’s resolutions fail very quickly — some don’t even last a few days. James Corden and Meghan Trainor finally put that struggle — to change or not to change — into catchy song format, with their parody riff “All About That Change.”
Dressed like Trainor’s popular “All About That Bass” video (Corden even dons a light-blue sweater, bow, and knee-high socks), the two rhapsodize about their doomed New Year’s resolutions: to lose weight (Corden) and party less (Trainor). But despite the optimistic, upbeat start, both resolutions fall into disarray by the end of the song. Corden’s hope to lose “all the wrong junk in all the wrong places” fails when he doesn’t go to the gym, and Trainor’s determination not to “drunk dial another ex” stumbles in the face of the fact that “orange juice is good but even better with champagne.” Because in the end, “resolutions are worthless / we all know that’s why we’re here.”
