For when “dislike” just doesn’t cut it…











{October 18, 2008}   That ONE catchy line in a song…

You know when you get a song stuck in your head, but just ONE line?

Yeah, that.

Screw you, “Go ahead and laugh / yeah I’m a funny guyyyyyy…” from “Brand New Day” off the Dr. Horrible soundtrack.



{October 10, 2008}   “So What?” by Pink

My dislike of this song is an unpopular stance in my dorm, where all the seventeen year old girls from small towns REALLY buy into false non-conformity. I like to think that being at one point cited on Pink’s wikipedia page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pink_(singer)) makes me an expert on her, even though I haven’t thought of her in years.

Which brings me to my main dislike of her infectious (like malaria) single, “So What?” Even if the Nana-na-na-nana-na cadence wasn’t the most awkward rhythm to sing along with, Pink only ever really sings about one topic: her own relevancy. 

Her “comeback” album was called “I’m Not Dead,” which is hilarious and tongue-in-cheek. There was “Stupid Girls,” in which she mocked pop starlets while claiming to be different. She imitates those same starlets in the video, showing that she doesn’t fit into the cookie-cutter mould. However, in imitating them, she still wears the wet white t-shirt, she still does the slutty dance moves, she still washes the convertible in a bikini. There was “Cuz I Can,” her ode to her own bad-assitude. Now, with “So What?” She offers to fight her ex-husband and pretty much everyone else because she doesn’t give a darn.  Then she goes around and says, “I don’t need love and marriage because I’m a rock star!”

But ALL of her songs are about being a rock star. It’s safe to say that if Pink didn’t have any songs about being a rock star, she wouldn’t have any songs and therefore, y’know… wouldn’t be a rock star. 

It’s not self-affirming, because she wants to fight him. It doesn’t take a psychologist to see that she’s still bitter.

It’s not original, because it rips off all of her other songs.

AND it has by far the most annoying verse construction ever, and I’ve heard it three times today already.
