It’s a good thing that the RIAA can’t read my mind to hear what’s playing in my head or I’d be paying royalties for some of the worst crap to ever hit the airwaves. And I haven’t figured out how to turn it off.
Some of the worst offenders (and I haven’t listened to pop radio in over 20 years, so – and thank you Lord – I couldn’t tell the difference between Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake if I was hit over the head with it):
1- Downtown by Petula Clark
2- 123/ABC by the Jackson 5
3- Crimson King, Emerson Lake & Palmer
4- We Built this City on Rock & Roll – Starship (yeah, right)
5- Dust in the Wind – Kansas
6- You Light up my Life – Debbie Boone
7- In-a-gadda-da-vida – Iron Butterfly
8- Don’t Stop Believin’ – Journey – Yeah, thanks for digging that one up David Chase. It was a great finale, but hey, you’re killin’ me here. Then there’s the damned Hillary takeoff. But I should be thankful that she didn’t pick the Celine Dion thing, or I might have to shoot myself to get it to quit playing.
She should’ve gone down with the Titanic. But no, I’m not going there; I saw the movie but have no idea what the song was. Seriously, I’m not going there. Go ‘way. Git.
I know I owe you guys a lot of royalties for all the free music I’ve been listening to, but hey, you owe me a new brain!
