Song Critique Time



May 22, 2012

I’m here to critique music as a means by which to ignore and derail the imminent pressing issues present in my life at the current moment.

… What I don’t understand is this. People write songs about starships… Okay. People also write songs about payphones… Okay. People also write songs about clubs… Okay. People also write songs about cell phone numbers… Okay. People also write songs about drive bys… Okay. People also write songs about birthday cake… Okay. People also write songs about rain… Okay. So let me get this straight, based upon the top charts on iTunes, people write songs about inanimate objects. While I am not necessarily condoning this as a song-writing tactic I have to make the comment… why can’t someone please write a decent song about a cat?! Cats are deserving of a song just as much if not more so than a payphone or a cell phone number. But do cats get anything? No. The closest the music industry gets to proudly supporting a song about cats is supporting a song about Dinosaurs. I mean okay, 12 year old boys like dinosaurs, but Ke$ha, really? There needs to be a song about cats. They are literally the most amazing things since sliced bread. Really. Google it.

This was understanding music with Nikki. Tune is next time where we will critique those music awards or whatever.
