Alejandro Aranda, known to the “American Idol” world as Scary Pool Party has come out with a new song, which he performs in a video on his Instagram Page.
EDITOR NOTE: Aranda’s Post “Millennial Love” was removed from Instagram on 5-19-19. ***SPOILER: He performed it in round 1 of the “American Idol” finale. In the finale he also performed “Ten Years” against a backdrop of violinists and an orchestra. Aranda’s self-recorded Instagram performance via his home was originally posted on March 16.
On the ‘American Idol’ finale, Aranda’s Pomona parade and performance showed the thousands that turned out for the favorite local musician.
In a poignant scene, the children’s choir sang his songs back to him.
In round 1 of the finale, Aranda said the song “Milennial Love” is “basically how I think in some relationships my age being a milennial, we are too much about our phones.”
“It was, I’m sure for all of us, I’m going to speak on my behalf, love at first sound for you,” said judge Lionel Richie following Aranda’s Round 1 performance on the finale. “There are very few times in life when someone comes along that captivates your imagination, your soul, you know what your’re looking at is the next level of something amazing. From one songwriter to another, we are so happy to have you join the ranks.”
Check out the great and most humble Aranda performing his song about millennial love.

(I have made so many mistakes) All men are dogs they say So I’ll run away and become a stray And I’ll come back abused for you to laugh and tell you’re friends I’m nothing I would work in a sewer till I melt And break my back but close my mouth Lose my hand in a conveyor belt Then cry in a lunch room by myself This millennial love is something Else This millennial love is something else This millennial love is something else But I would do anything for you my love
