Still stuck on music

       I like Adele's music somewhat, but I'm wondering if there is anyone out there over the age of ten who listens to the current music on the radio with regularity that isn't completely sick of "Rolling in the Deep". Unless you are into oldies or country, you can't help but hear it anywhere from three to ten times a day. We had visitors here in August which is two months ago, and I remember my daughter and her friend talking about how tired they were of the song back then. Could someone send a memo to the radio stations to find something else to play and make us sick of that instead? Please? It's seriously a decent song, but enough is enough! Sometimes I wake up and the damn thing is still running through my head from the day before and it sets me in a mood. I have to mentally turn the channel in my head to get something else stuck in there. PLEASE QUIT PLAYING THAT SONG!

Today, when I switched to my station at work, some damn thing was playing that sounded like sheep mating or something. Almost made me throw up it was so awful, which made me realize just how many bad decisions were made in order for me to hear that particular piece of crap. I mean really! 1. Someone wrote it. 2. Someone decided that the song was worth recording... and even after hearing it, they decided to release it. 3. Someone in programming at the radio station thought it would be a good thing to play. If just one of these idiotic decisions hadn't been made, I might have been listening to a nice Pearl Jam song, or maybe some U2. BUT NO! I decided I'd just take a minute from my busy day and go over and change the station. You'll never guess what was playing. UGH!

Katy Perry. See what I did there? You thought I was going one way and I went another. But let's talk about Katy for a second. First off, she is now the leader in number one songs since Obama got into office. Katy Friggin Perry. If you read my worst lyrics posts, you know I'm not all that fond of her. It started with her first song. I had heard it on the radio only a few times when it came on New Years Rockin' Eve whatever year that was. They brought Dick Clark out of the ice they store him in and he announced her singing "I Kissed a Girl." It kind of freaked me out when our 7 year old "almost relative" started singing about how she liked the taste of her cherry chapstick. Not that I'm a prude, but it seemed a little out there for a seven year old to know all those lyrics. Anyway, I haven't been much into Katy since then.

I will always love you. Well, most of you anyway.

  1. I admit that Adele is being overplayed but I just love her. I can honestly listen to her songs over and over again. But I am crazy and lame like that, haha.

    As for Katy Perry's "I Kissed A Girl" ... I absolutely hated hearing it! I wanted to scream everytime I heard it. Almost like nails on a chalkboard. But I like Katy, haha.

    Thanks for finding my blog, I def. need some snarky in my life!

  2. They do play all the popular song so much that I get sick of them. I rarely listen to the radio because of this.

    My 2 year old daughter loves Katy Perry. I don't know what it is about her music, but everytime it comes on she starts dancing. Hopefully she doesn't start picking up on the lyrics.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. You are too funny, and I look forward to reading more.

  3. Soo happy you stopped by! I'm following you back! :D Keep in touch. ;)
