A new song is like the first day of work, school or any new venture. At first we are excited and it makes us feel good. Fast forward one to three months down the road, and its not as fun or exciting anymore, is it?
If your car lacks a cd player or auxiliary cord, you may feel like a prisoner of top 40 radio. When a certain song starts playing, you panic and look for a quick escape route.
I have complied a list of the 4 songs I once loved, but would now not mind hearing less often… or never again.
4. The Monster- Eminem feat. Rihanna | “I’m friends with…” is about all I can handle of the ever-popular song before I desperately switch the radio station. When I hear this song on the radio I, myself, turn into a monster. The only voice in my head is saying “please change the channel!” At first it was enjoyable, but now that I know every word, the motivational appeal to the song is well, dead. The monster killed it. (They can’t believe it!)
3. Wake me up!- Avicii | Actually, please let me keep sleeping. The millennial generation is obsessed with this catchy tune, giving ammunition to living life in the fast lane. I may be a millennial myself, but when this song plays I would rather not be woken up.
2. Burn- Ellie Goulding | Ellie Goulding has graced us with her presence on the radio for the last 3-4 years. Goulding has proved she is a pyromaniac of sorts by strictly singing about lights and burning stuff up. Personally, when I hear her current tune ‘Burn’ all I want to do is burn the lyrics up so I don’t have to hear the same song with a different house beat again. Ellie, I think you’re great, but please diversify your music.
1. Happy- Pharrell Williams | There is a fine line between a happy person and a crazy person and Pharrell’s hit ‘Happy’ is walking that line. Top 40 radio DJ’s must think all of America is depressed based on the amount of times ‘Happy’ is played in one hour, let alone one day. I loved this song at first, but now it’s driving me crazy. Maybe Pharrell’s followup hit will be called ‘Crazy.’ You know I’m right when Grumpy Cat is over it.
Do you agree with me? What song would you to add to this list? Let me know by tweeting @CW44_TampaBay!
