Day 13

Day 13. A song that is a guilty pleasure

Oh dear. Some candidates: the first nine tracks of Sous Hit by DAT Politics (because they're so incredibly horrible that Dan gets angry if I listen to them while he's anywhere near the house), Christmas Tree by Lady Gaga (thank you, Amazon, for the free MP3), Boom Boom Pow by Black Eyed Peas (I'm especially ashamed by that one), but my all time guilty pleasure has got to be this rockin' teen number:

Why guilty? This song features more or less everything I profess to hate about music: women singers (OK, this is a dude, but it still sounds like a woman), shameless slap bass, excessive Fairlight CMI orchestral hits, overuse of the pitch bender thingy on cheesy synths, bright, shitty guitar that sounds like it's there only to make it more "pop," lyrics that include words like "girl", "love," and "oooh baby," terrible sounding fake drums, terrible sounding fake brass section, terrible sounding fake everything.

Worst of all, I just Googled the lyrics and realized I've mishead this line for a quarter century: How could two muffins be so sweet? Go figure. Guess I spent too much time listening to Spinal Tap.
