Except for Applause.
And congratulations #4, I think you're the first person on the internet to use the word hipster appropriately.
Still a dumb song, but better singing and arrangement.
Although I own a thousand vinyl LPs, a few thousand CD's, boxes of cassettes, and terabyte hard drives full of music files, I am happy to say I have never heard a single one of these songs, and, hopefully, never will.
Well, maybe the daft punk, if my kid brings it home.
There is way too much great new music released every month to waste time on shit like this.
You can complain Dave, but you aren't in control. And by now you know all the lyrics, and they haunt your dreams.
These are like soundtracks used as background to a greater conceptual work that includes visuals, dance, personality showcases, and cultural meme manipulation as well as a type of crowd participation through social media (copying, parodying, reporting).
The current technology is Miley. No one is near her and she rusts out Gaga and Perry. That is because her taboos are au courant.
Few get that some of what Cyrus does is in your face satire. Her get up at VMA made her look like...a blow up doll (check the make up, hair and facial expressions)! What was seen by dreary and uncomprehending feminists as submission was in fact a critique of male fantasy. She was not dancing with Thicke...but rebutting (pun intended) him!
I already am. Trust me, you will, too.
BTW, Is there any worse lyric in the history of song than "killing that pussy softly"? Just askin'.
And to answer your last question, "Let the small head rock her" by Great White strikes me as worse by a hair (metal band).
@27: There's a difference between "Douchey Up-In-Da-Club Playa Anthem" and "Rapist's Delight". Rick Ross' verse on "U.O.E.N.O.” is unequivocally a promotion of date rape, and it rightfully got him dropped by Reebok. "Blurred Lines" is just kind of sleazy.
You might have a point if her music showed a hint of the satire you claim she shows on stage, but it's no more than bland manufactured pop. And if there's any truth to your contention that her music is "background to a greater conceptual work," well, that would make her the laziest satirist I've ever seen.
Good god are you dumb.
