Last weekend I was cleaning my room so I decided to turn on my radio. I set it to KISS FM, since I can't think of any other station that, on a regular basis, plays music made after 2000.
So I'm cleaning, and after a few rap songs they play "I Gotta Feeling", by the Black Eyed Peas. It's a great song, in my opinion, but the lyrics are probably the stupidest lyrics I've ever heard.
"Fill up my cup (drank!). Mazeltov (l'heim). Look ar her dancin' (move it, move it), just take it...off! Let's paint the town (paint the town!)! We'll shut it down (shut it down)! Let's burn the roof (WOOOOOOO!)! And then we'll do it again!"
Seriously? That was number 1 for weeks and weeks and weeks?!? The rythym of the song is the only thing that's keeping it popular. You have to have one damn good beat to make a song like that!
Anyway, after that, I hear Taylor Swift's "Crappy Love Song that's Desperately Trying to be Country". This is why I wish that Tivo could be used on the radio. After the song was over, I hear some more rap, some more pop, then, once again, "I Gotta Feeling". Twice in half-an-hour. Wow.
After hearing "I Gotta Feeling", I hear Lady Gaga. She's awesome. But my dad is very correct when he says that her songs are like those that you on "Deep House Dish," a popular skit on "Saturday Night Live". Here's an excerpt from her popular song "Poker Face."
"I wanna hold em like they do in Texas plays. Fold em let em hit me raise a baby stay with me, I love it. Luck and intuition play the cards with spades to start. And after he's been hooked I'll play the one that's on his heart."
Wow. Just. Wow.
Boy KISS is delivering today. What do they have next? Why, Club Kiss, of course!
Club Kiss is basically pop songs remixed together to sound like nightclubs. The music generally contains at least 2-5 songs at a time. Sometimes they play one song with the bass and rythym of another. It's really hit or miss and more often than not it's miss. Other times they play two songs at a time in alternating patterns, or interspersed in another song with the the background noise of another song and the beat of yet another song. Again, hit or miss.
And guess what! "I Gotta Feeling" is being played again! Only this time it has the background to Mary J. Blige's new song, or whoever performs that song on that AT&T commercial, the one with the woman who changes outfits about 10 times. This background music would appear many more times througout the night.
Next, Lady Gaga music with the background of some rap song. Then, and I'm not kidding, they played "I Gotta Feeling" again.
That's when I realized something; KISS FM always does this. Everytime there's a song that is SUPER popular, they play it again and again and again and again and-well you get the idea. When Rihanna's "Disturbia" was insanely popular, they played it twice in one half-an-hour. When Katy Perry's "Hot N' Cold" or "I Kissed a Girl" was insanely popular, they played that a lot too. Ne-Yo's "Closer" was popular, it seemed like it was played every other song. They do this again and again until you're practically sick of it! Well, actually, you are sick of it. And now they are doing the same thing with "I Gotta Feeling". And no doubt, they're going to do it again with another song.
However, I was glad that they failed to play a single Miley Cyrus song. Thank god.
