right now than Uptown Funk? Yes, it is musically insipid and entirely forgettable. But that is forgivable, even if not particularly admirable.
No, the issue is the faux cleverness of it. “I know, let’s do a song that sounds just like you are saying a gross profanity but you are actually not! Sure, the phrase makes absolutely no sense as it is, but it sure sounds vulgar and yet it can be on the radio!” Is there a person of good sense over age 17 who likes that song?
Nice, you clever little boy. Here’s your pat on the head. Now get your 2nd helping of ham and go back to the little kids’ table where you belong. It is SO immature, from a guy who is technically an adult but who quite obviously lives in the town of Juvenalia. Grow up!
As a former voice major, I can tell you that there are a number of stupid classical songs that are inflicted on that crowd, so stupid songs are nothing new. I mean, there were songs that were nothing but a punishment to sing. But let’s call things as they are–this song is both stupid and offensive. To even hear it is a punishment.
And it is quite discouraging to see putatively normal people like this song. Yet, after decades of giving IQ tests I am reminded of the old saw: “Think of how dumb the average person is and then realize that by definition half are dumber!”
