A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about "Listen At Work" (a.k.a. 'Muzak') music. A few minutes ago, this very same station [KOST 103.5], just finished playing the most hideous, toe-curling abomination of a song ever to be recorded.
I don't know what the name of it is nor who the so-called "artist" is. But here are a few of the lines from that song, which, incidentally, make me want to
DO a few lines.
"I hope you still feel small when you stand next to the ocean/I hope you never settle for the path of least resistance/I hope that you'll give faith a fighting chance/I hope you'll dance"
Do not even
TRY to tell me that the making of this song not only involved a substantial amount of narcotics, but a KFC bucket and a box of Häägen Dääz as well.
I should feel small when standing next to the ocean? Ok, that's a lesson in being humbled and how insignificant we are when compared to the rest of the world. I'll give her that. But
I have never, EVER in all the years I have been going to the beach, never, not once seen a person dancing on the sand.
And this woman is suggesting that we do?
This is the type of song that can only appeal to the following types of people:
1) Flaming, flambuoyant gays
2) 18 year old boys who drive "Rice Rockets" (as seen at http://www.anti-rice.com
3) The tramps that call themselves boyfriends to aforementioned group #2 and actually, as a result of their own spiritually and morally bankrupt existence would actually "spread" upon hearing this song.
4) Conformity whores. These are the ones that will participate in any trend, no matter how silly, stupid, or pointless it is, whether it's wearing a baseball cap backwards, or positioning the windshield wipers on their car halfway up, simply, because "that's what people are doing right now". These people are incapable of making decisions for themselves, including how many times a minute they should breathe, because they are co-dependant on having everything spoon fed to them.
