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.
