I had to ressurect this thread to put in the Gawd awful What Does the Fox Say song. It is everywhere and it gets stuck in my head and I want to stab myself in the ear with an ice pick1 Doesn't help my 7 yr old DD sings it all.the.time (along with anything One Direction..gahhh!) And that stupid Robin Thicke song that everyone said is so great with the nekkid women video..it isn't even singing! I can only make out a word or two from the garbling.
I've been hearing so much about the fox song and finally heard it last Saturday and I gotta say, I don't get the hype.
Three words: watch the video. Not saying it will change any minds, since the song really is outright ridiculous, but there's something about the video that had several of us just rolling on the floor. DD loves that song, but her taste in music is pretty unusual (at 4, whose isn't?).
There are a few songs currently getting airtime with completely vapid lyrics, but I switch off those stations so quick I can't even name them at the moment. I find almost everything by Lady Gaga to be painful, but especially the "I live for the applause" one, whatever that's really called.
