Proof Good Music Is Dead


Recommended Posts

I thought we had hit a low point with Bieber, GaGa, and trashy Kesha...but apparently not.

Heres what the critics had to say according to Wikipedia:

 

The song has received almost entirely negative reviews. Observers have called it "bizarre", "inept" and "hilariously dreadful". The song and singer were "savaged" on social networks across the internet, while being seen as a "YouTube laughing stock".

 

Kevin Rutherford, a columnist for Billboard magazine, wrote, "Black's video for 'Friday' is one of those rare occurrences where even the most seasoned critics of Internet culture don't know where to begin. From the singing straight out of Auto-Tuned hell to lyrics such as 'Tomorrow is Saturday / And Sunday comes afterwards / I don't want this weekend to end' and a hilariously bad rap about passing school buses, 'Friday' is something that simply must be seen and heard to be fully appreciated." Many other reviewers also singled out the lyrics in particular for criticism, which were described as "overly simple and repetitive" by TNT Magazine. Jim Edwards of BNET and Doug Gross of CNN both noted that the rap break from the considerably older rapper was "creepy".

 

One reviewer went so far as to state the song was possibly "The Worst Song Ever" and compared it to "The long look an addict takes in the mirror on the day they hit bottom, the day they tell themselves, I need to make some changes."

 

 

This video was made three days ago and my roommate just showed it to me. We almost wet ourselves laughing while watching it at how horrible it was. :lol:

The thing with Bieber, Kesha and Gaga is that they are pop music, and just like how pop music intends, they're simple and pretty catchy under the right circumstances.

 

I don't much enjoy any of the 3 artists you listed in general but "Baby" is probably one of the catchiest songs I've heard and I do like it a lot. Same with Tik Tok, Telephone and what not and for the purpose they serve, I say they're pretty darn good. Personal taste doesn't serve as good objective judgement on what's good and bad, right or wrong, blah blah blah, not to mention the experience of listening to music is very subjective, so......don be hatinnnnnnn tongue.gif

 

(Friday is definitely trash though)

Today is Thursday. Tomorrow is Friday. And Saturday comes afterward. And then Sunday comes after that.

 

Gotta get down.

 

 

Only after you make up your mind about what seat to take in your friend's car. That's a very important step, you know.

You're right. What should I do? It's such a dilemma. Maybe I should just jump in the trunk

This video is precisely why parents don't let their teenage kids to go out or drive cars... ever. If I had kids and this type of crap was going on I'd probably send them all to military school - including the women.

 

I'm never getting that 3:47 back from my life.

Oh... my... god... haha...

 

I must say I agree. This song is horrible.

 

On a side note, Lady Gaga's song aren't bad! Well, at least the earlier ones. I don't like the recent ones.

 

But don't give up hope! There are actually good pop songs out there. Just take this song by Pink. I think it's actually pretty good and I'll share it with you to take away the sting of what you just heard.

The unedited version is even better, adds a bit of power to the song. ;)

 

On topic, just because you don't like something doesn't mean it's terrible. A true music lover should be capable of admitting, while not particularly liking the music of say, Lady Gaga, her voice was created for the purpose of music and her lyrics are catchy.

 

Plus, She was born this way, baby!

That's dreadful. I'm going to have to listen to Metallica all night just to get the crud out my ears.

 

 

Iron Maiden, dude. Even "Master of Puppets" wouldn't be enough brain bleach to get that out of my head. Got to have "Can I Play With Madness" for sure.

Last night when I selected Slayer to blast that filth out of my brain. It wasn't enough... some douche was playing it on the train to show her friends at how corny it was. Thank goodness I have Iron Maiden and Metallica to flush the rest of it out during the train ride, otherwise I would have been pissed off even before I had my morning coffee before my work shift started. On my break, I moved on to Disturbed, 5FDP, and BFMV... I think I feel a little bit better now.
