Daddy Yankee - 'Gasolina': This "song" sounds like the result of a dj attempting to mix two Atari videogame soundtracks together. Its only saving grace is that the rapper in it looks like a parody of Ali G (who in turn is a parody himself - so you can imagine how ridiculous this guy is). In fact, seeing as the video clip is simply a vehicle used to parade as many bikini clad women across the screen as possible, why didn't they just make it silent?
Kate Alexa - 'All I Hear': "All I hear is la, la, lala, la." Ah, the lyrical complexity of Australian pop. I'm not sure what is going on in the clip - our pop star is wandering through the streets of Melbourne, gibbering something about... love lost...? Teen angst...? Partying down...? I found I had to listen to Kid-A three times on repeat aftering listening to this, just to keep from slitting my wrists. And I know that if I'm listening to Radiohead in order to avoid slitting my wrists then I'm in a dark place.
James Blunt - 'Goodbye My Lover': Let me be blunt (a pun as terrible as the song) this is a true 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' moment. Kermit the frog had a far better voice.
Further songs on my hit list: Ashlee Simpson - 'L.O.V.E', Bob Sinclair's 'Love Generation' (I particularly hate this one. It makes me feel like I should be doing a conga line on a cruise ship), and whatever that new Westlife song is called.
I really need to get voice posting up and running so I can start doing my impressions of some of these songs.
