I was doing some work when a couple of songs popped up on my playlist which really made me go WTF? One is Avril Lavigne’s Nobody’s Fool, and the other is Weezer’s Everybody Get Dangerous.
Now, the fact that I have these on my computer means that I like both artists, but seriously, what were they thinking when they did these songs? They sound so… I dunno, the most appropriate term I can come up with is “silly”.
I understand that artists like to mix up their musical styles to be a bit different and expand their horizons. But while it works for some people like Justin Timberlake, it’s just kinda bad for others. My question is, why aren’t these songs B-sides instead?
And seriously what does “I’m not the milk and cheerios in your spoon. It’s not a simple hearing but not so soon” mean, Avril? That line really makes no sense whatsoever.
Anyway, just for good measure, here’s Paula Cole, who did the theme song for Dawson’s Creek (which I like), doing her rap experimentation. It just doesn’t sound right.
