POP MUSIC IS BRILLIANT PART DEUX

December 7, 2009 at 10:51 pm (Lulz, Musical)

Added to the slices of pop gems mentioned below, I felt the need to post these two videos for entirely different reasons

Lostprophets – ‘where we belong’

Wow. I want to hate Lostprophets so bad – Watkins comes across as a smug, arrogant cunt, they’re filthy rich, can have poon on tap and the whole consumerist bling bling image thing they give off is totally against the spirit of punk rock and hardcore…

The thing is, (and I don’t mean to namedrop here) having met Watkins during the whole Flash! Flash! Flash! Photography roller coaster thing…the dude’s simply a complete legend. Sure, he’s a bit cocky, but the guy literally can do whatever he wants simply because he’s Ian Watkins. Consequently he does some pretty rad things like take a bunch of normal dudes from London and let them support them on various shows, letting them bring mates like myself along for the ride, as opposed to simply fuck underage girls backstage.

And, most importantly, the band (there’s 6 of them remember) can write some FANTASTIC songs. ‘It’s Not The End Of The World…’ was terrible. Utter shite. This, is not. This is good, nay brilliant, nay outstanding. One of the best songs I’ve heard this year and when it’s released will probably be one of the best singles of 2010. It contains one of the best rock choruses I’ve heard in years and is the best pop/rock song of that sort since FFAF’s ‘Into Oblivion’ which is a masterpiece.

If Lossy P’s can write an album full of hits like that, it’ll be a genius. Balls to returning to the older metal with the DJ and wierd hip-hop inspired interludes, STADIUM ROCK like this song is much better

R Kelly – ‘Pregnant’

Words fail me. Seriously, the dude is such a genius. Highlights include

– “knock you up” as the little backing vocal”
– “until I met this girl in a club with an unbelievable booty, the sweetest girl in the world to me and on toppa that she’s a cutie…”
– “but I keep seeing this big old house with a pickett fence and a daaaawwwg’
– “So put that girl in the kitchen”
– “I just wanna put somethin’ in you”
