Music Peeves

There is music in this world that is created by stupid people. Seriously. One look at the effort taken to write some of these songs really makes you wonder how the songwriter actually got this far.

For instance... Sheryl Crow sang "all I wanna do is have some fun, I got a feeling, I'm not the only one..." Problem is, we already know she's not the only one who wants to have fun- In the very first verse, she meets a guy who tells her he wants to have a little fun before he dies!
Yet, we are still forced to listen to this moronic chorus line over and over again...

How about Message In A Bottle? The last line of the song "Sending out an S.O.S." repeats over a dozen times!!! What happened- did he run out inspiration?

Then, there's some fool techno song that repeats the same ascending seven tones over and over for six minutes. I normally like techno, but that is stupid!

Then there's that bloody cowboy who thought doing a country cover of Lips Of An Angel would be good idea. Hey, Dude, you're a moron. Slide guitars have no place on that song, not to mention that your cover absolutely SUCKS!

How about Love Train? Hall and freakin' Oates! I lost track counting the times they say "love train" at twenty!!!!!

Then, my personal favorite- Fatboy Slim. The guy has made an entire career of repeating the same line over and over and calling this abject idiocy a song.

OK, folks. That's enough ranting from me. If you're a musician, please for the sake of mankinds sanity- QUIT MAKING STUPID SONGS!
