I have this problem.
The problem is that I am too lazy to go get my car stereo installed, so I listen to a lot of radio on my commute to and from work because I have no auxiliary input in which to plug my ipod.
I'm not going to pretend there isn't a fair amount of music on the radio that I actually like, because there is. I love my Katy Perry and my Panic at the Disco, I'll admit it. But sometimes, there are songs I don't like. There are songs I really, really don't like. And SOMETIMES these songs are cleverly disguised as catchy fun tunes but if you take a moment to actually listen to the lyrics (which I usually do, as I am a lyricist) you would be appalled.
Well, maybe you wouldn't. But I was.
Today's Bad lyrics of the Day are:
"I like you so much better when you're naked. I like me so much better when you're naked."
This was the chorus, just repeated over and over. I don't think I even need to break this down for anyone to explain why this is so stupid, but I'll just say it. How would someone else being naked affect how you feel about yourself? It just makes so little sense ahhh. I don't understand why it needed to be written in a song. Sometimes when I get struck with an idea, I think "hm. Should I write about this in my blog? Twitter it? Make a video about it? Write a song about it?" The artist of this song should just just sent it in a text message to their boyfriend and moved on with her life.
If you follow me on twitter you'll have already heard me complain about these before, but for the rest of you, here are some of my favorite horrible/offensive/stupid lyric finds from the past year or so:
"Do the Helen Keller and talk with your hips."
"Don't even know your name, so I will call you 'Medicine', you can ease my pain."
In other news, I'm at work and the last person I talked to on the phone had the last name "Inkpen". That's SO COOL. I want that last name. It's so defining. It would be like having the name "Kristina Laptop" or "Kristina YouTube" or something. Ha.
All I have left to say is that if all I could eat for the rest of my life was Jamba Juice, pistacios, Chipotle burritos and Cinnamon Bun ice cream... well, I may not be healthy, but I'd be happy.
