First of all, I would like to apologize for posting this. I know some of you may like this, but I do not. Don’t get me wrong, it’s an OK song…wait, never mind, I just really don’t like it. They overplay it on the radio. Just yesterday, all three of my usual morning stations were playing the song at the same time! It gets regular rotations on Sirius‘ Hit’s 1, Top 20, and the Pulse. And it’s been stuck on my head. I probably wouldn’t mind it so much if fun. didn’t get so much air play too. I am just not a big fan of fun. Nate Ruess just sounds like a man that just inhaled helium, and at the same time got kicked in the gonads.
While at work today, we were just randomly humming songs, and basically just singing or well yelling out random lyrics to whatever song that first pops into our head based off on what was said last. Our office manager started humming Bohemian Raphsody, and we all just started singing it. So finally my co-worker puts it on, and after hearing it again for who know’s how many times, it’s still an awesome and amazing song. Possibly one of the best songs out there. It has so many elements to it, and it truly is a timeless piece.
This got me thinking, how come bands like Queen aren’t around anymore. Instead we get rubbish canned, thoughtless music that’s basically written to be catchy and sell millions, but seriously you get tired of it after a week, and even if you hear it some years later, it still sucks. I don’t think there’s a song that’s been released in the last few years that’s really stood out for me, and well, be a classic. I’m sure there is, but what’s been played on air, not much. I got these thoughts also due to ‘A Dose of Buckley’s‘ latest list, of Most Horrible Songs of 2012, and I totally agree with his list, it’s all garbage, and it’s a shame that these artists are making money off of these poor quality songs. The actual good stuff that’s worth listening to gets drowned out by the likes of ‘Gangnam Style’, and whatever Taylor Swift releases or what not. Not entirely bad per say, but it’s not going to be a classic in the future. I listen to the 90’s and the Pulse on Sirius XM, and some of the song’s that we’re hits back then, you hear them now, and you’re like “WTF, I liked this shit?” In any case, this song made it to # 163 on Rolling Stones top 500 songs list. Shame, it should have been higher.
