Happy memorial day weekend everyone! It’s shoobie season down at the Jersey Shore and probably a lot of other places too. Although you would probably like to hide in your house all weekend, you can’t! Barbeques and hanging out with your friends are too tempting to resist!
You know what that means, right? Traffic. Lots and lots of soul crushing traffic. It means something else too. Lots of soul crushing music played on the radio!
In the spirit of that, here are five of the worst songs you’ll hear on the radio this weekend. Enjoy!
I used to like Taylor Swift when she first came out as an artist. Now, she makes me want to play Frogger on the New Jersey Turnpike. This song is about how wonderful it is to be 22. I hate to break it to everyone, but 22 feels EXACTLY the same as 21. And 21 feels like 18 except you are allowed to drink in public and buy booze. Things probably won’t feel any different until you hit 25 or 30.
Drake-Started from the Bottom
Drake is becoming notorious for making songs out of facts. First it was YOLO (you only live once) and now it’s started from the bottom. A lot of people have taken issue with what is Drake’s bottom (living in a home with a pool in Canada and starring in Degrassi) and his here (famous rapper). I just hate that EVERYONE is claiming they started from the bottom and are now here. 90% of the people saying it are STILL at the bottom. It’s played 140609309121849384 times a day and I HATE the way his voice sounds on this sound.
Pitbull featuring Christina Aguilera- Feel this Moment
They ruined A-ha’s “Take on Me”. Enough said.
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis featuring Wanz- Thrift Shop
This is a case of a song being overplayed on the radio. Good message and interesting beat, but if I never hear “I’m gonna pop some tags” ever again, it would be too soon.
Avril Lavigne- Here’s to Never Growing Up
It’s a nice sentiment and has the making of a summer anthem, but it all makes you feel kind of jaded. Maybe it’s because of all the old school references like radiohead and boom boxes. Either way, deep down you know that those moments aren’t going to last forever. That you and your friends may change and you won’t be able to party summer night. I also HATE Avril’s singing on this one. She sounds awful.
