- Taylor Swift's "Love Story". I think this song makes anyone even remotely acquainted with literature want to blow their brains out. Romeo and Juliet? Really? You want to kill yourselves over a series of small miscommunications? And the far, far worse comparison--HAVE YOU EVER READ THE SCARLET LETTER, WOMAN?? That makes no friggin' sense in your context whatsoever and is not as romantic as you think it is. Stop pulling allusions to literature into your songs if you don't know what they mean.
- Michael Buble's "Just Haven't Met You Yet". I love/hate this song. It's really fun to sing along to, but it gets me ranting every time because it has some of the worst rhymes ever. "I know some day it'll all work out/and you'll make me work so we can work to work it out.". Really? If you were to make a drinking game and take a sip for every time Michael says "work", you would be hammered after one playing. Or maybe not, I really have no idea how much drinking getting hammered requires. But still. I also dislike perpetuating the idea that OF COURSE none of your relationships have worked; You haven't met "the one" yet! Once you do, you will change all your ways and everything will magically WORK OUT. If it doesn't, well, then it just wasn't "the one", I guess! The problem could never possibly be you! [also take note of that, Tay-Tay]
- Bruno Mars' "Grenade". Geez, no wonder that chick wasn't that into you. You are WAYYY too intense. And kind of whiny. Reminds me of guys that would always complain about being "Friend Zoned". Dude, that was us being nice, saying we didn't want to ruin our friendship. Really, we were just not interested because you're creepy intense.
Any of you guys have strong reactions to songs on the radio?
