I’d like to start off by telling Justin Timberlake that I am disappointed in his latest single, Suit and Tie. I had such high hopes! “Aww yeah, JT’s coming out with some new stuff! …wait… what…what is this garbage?”
Related to that last line, but unrelated to music, I feel like, at least among those I know, the word “trash” is used much more often than “garbage,” and also, “garbage” is a funny word and seems to be used more as an insult, and it also reminds me of “rubbish” when then reminds me of Harry Potter. What I’m trying to say is that the word “garbage” always makes me giggle a little inside.
On principle I dislike any song in which the artist sings or states their name. I’m looking at you, Nicki Minaj. Exceptions include Ms. Spears’ “Britney, bitch” lines and the entire concept of Fergalicious, because, hilarious.
I heard a new song last week, and let me tell you… I’m traumatized. Have you heard “Who Booty”? If you haven’t, just, allow me. I don’t want to suffer alone…
I… I’m so sorry. I hadn’t seen the video before. I should have known it would be really bad, given the song. I think the worst part is the section where he’s almost making a ballad out of “I’m gonna smack it…” My insides are shriveling up in disgust right now.
To make up for it, let’s talk about how my YouTube feed (that I rarely check), threw multiple Goo Goo Dolls covers in my face today. I have no complaints. I love the Goo. and I also enjoy Ms. Digby and Boyce Avenue…
I kept listening to Boyce Avenue covers, and listened to their lovely cover of One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful,” and one of the first comments I see is this gem:
I don’t even know where to begin. I think my favorite part is the use of the word “peasant.” But really, kids, at least TRY to play nice on the internet!
Lastly, I am so NOT into the American Idol thing, but I AM a complete sucker for the audition videos that make the rounds on the internet. I particularly can’t help but adore this “dorky,” “awkward” fellow.
Though I agree that his second song was much better. He may not exactly be an American Idol, but he’s definitely talented! I also liked Megan Miller, in large part for her personality though girl can SANG, and even though I don’t care for country music, Paul Jolley is so handsome and his voice is so rich… and his last name is Jolley. That’s just awesome.
