It's all R&B to me

Listening to East Coast Radio is like going to a Debs Ball, most of the time. Slow, back in the day songs we have long forgotten and for good reason. It has its plusses though because it carries with it a wave of nostalgia. The rest of the time however they play R&B.

Does anyone remember what R&B supposed to stand for? Cos now its more like Random & Brainless. I probably am guilty of grouping all rubbish songs together so it's all R&B to me. To me, lyrics are the most important part of songs, something R&B seems to totally disregard.

Here are some of the worst lyrics I have had the misfortune of hearing.

50 Cent - 21 Questions

I love you like a fat kid loves cake

Maybe he loves her alot when he has her but when she is gone, he regrets the relationship. Deep.

Shakira - Whenever, Wherever

Lucky that my breasts are small and humble
So you don't confuse them with mountains

Maybe I should excuse cos English isn't her first language but then why does she sing in it. She has also other nonsensical songs like 'Underneath your skin'.

Gwen Stefani - Sweet Escape

Cause I've been acting like sour milk all on the floor
It's your fault you didn't shut the refrigerator

Maybe that's the reason I've been acting so cold?

Gwen Stefani used to rock with No Doubt, well I liked Don't Speak, and she is married to one of the great rockers of our generation, Gavin Rossdale of Bush. So can someone tell me why she has lost her mind?

Jimmy Soul - Happy for the rest of your life

If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life
Never make a pretty women your wife

Ya ... you do that and tell me how it works out for you.

Beyonce - Check on it

Dip it, pop it, twork it, stop it, check on me tonight

I'm not sure if I blogged this before, but I hate Beyonce. Her voice, the way she looks, her attitude, her perfume line, everything. I could have chosen a number of lyrics for her, but this was first one that came to mind. What the hell is a twork?

Sean Paul - Temperature

Gal don't say me crazy now, this strange love it a no Bridgette and Flava show..
Time fi a make baby now so stop gwaan like you a act shady yo...

I copied all these lyrics straight from azlyrics.com, so thats how he actually sings. Why is this guy famous? Noone can understand what he is saying, but maybe it is a small mercy we can't . There is a character in GTA4, Lil Jacob, who talks similarly. He is endearing. This is not. Only thing he is good for is parody.

Till next time in Waseem world.

50 cent R&B?

But nothing says I love you like the comparison to cake.

Well at least in my books.

how do you know all this shit?

I hate R n B - R Kelly, Mario, Usher, and all those types.

I do like Beyonce though - however I doubt i'd be able to satisfy her. The bane of being Indian I guess.

I'm thinking of R n B lyrics to add to this post but I honestly cant think of any -

i guess 'itz becoz we be burning, no concerning what nobody wanna say :D'

My taste in music is rather eclectic - im big into Celtic music as of late

Now look at Gotti iced out with the blingy-bling
And a big body sittin' on them gleamy things
Now Rockland niggas know the means of cream
Kelly, R&B Thug and it sings to king
Got PJ niggas in caprime green
(Thugged out)
Hot chicks down to do anything
Cop them mo chicks
Cop mo bricks, pop mo Cris
Ay Kelly drop mo hits

R Kelly - Fiesta

Found this on the net - 'mere patha nahi' .

Im a Eminem fan and have been so for a good few years though.. People look at me in a "WTF" kinda way when i tell em that..

His words at times (mostly) dont make sense but send a hate message nonetheless..

Does 50 cent count as a rapper or RnB artist..

Another question.. WHich music of todays times actually makes sense when u read the lyrics again.. Think about it..

shane ward *shudder*
i liked the stuff that came before i turned ten. like a la la la la long and errm tease me and stuff. then i discovered it was all about getting down

KiLLa said...

Like a fat kid likes kid.. Mmmm.. Sounds like last nyts 2 and a half men episode..

Zahera said...

I like Usher EmJay! The rest- cant stand em.

Dew_drops said...

ahahaha. I enjoyed this post waseem.

Waseem said...

OH - OK I know he is hip hop, but its same nonsense lyricness

MJ - that should be mujko patha nahin, i think. R Kelly almost had an entry with his song ignition.

'I'm bout to take my key and
Stick it in the ignition
So baby gimme that toot toot
Lemme give you that beep beep'

killa - Eminem also nearly had entry but thing about him most of his stuff is tongue in cheek, I also like his stuff for comic value, not as real music. Eminems entry was going to be Ass Like that.

'I ain't never seen an ass like that
The way you move it, you make my pee pee go
Doing, doing, doing'

Nooj - Ah tainted your innocence. I cant believe you liked al la la long though. Thankfully your music taste has improved :P

Zahera - Its ok, noone is perfect :D

Dew - Thanks, I wanted to post like this, its not as niche but also funny.

gosh. this is why, despite limited 3G bandwidth while i was out on the east coast, i had to hook up to some highveld stereo every now and then, so i could breathe it in with that awesome ocean air u lot have out there..

this was bound to leave me gasping like a fish outta water :P

:)) talking of song lyrics, back in my matric year that lady marmalade song from moulin rouge was our official anthem. 'voulez vous couchez avec moi... ce soir...?' til i graduated n got into french school where i learnt exactly what we were asking for... bleh!

to never singing along to obscure lyrics...

Samina said...

amen to this post..
and i believe it's "Underneath your Clothes" not skin..

Add Rihanna to that list. She sings kak. And has a forehead to house a small city..
