Yeah. This is bad. This is really bad. But hey, at least you can be sure, dear reader, that I am being totally honest with you on Shame Week. I am not holding back. This is probably in the top five of Worst Songs I Own. And I own 33GB of music. And that’s not counting the 150 CDs I haven’t loaded onto my computer yet.
I can’t even remember where or how I heard this song. And I really don’t remember what it was about my life at the time that compelled me to hear it favorably. The lyrics are terrible, the melody is prosaic, and the sentiment is nice but also totally mindless. It’s like the musical version of McDonald’s – it’s technically food, but it’s so mass-produced it’s impossible to trace a single element back to an authentic source. Lab meat, meet lab music.
Well there you go, Tune-Up fans. I hope you enjoyed this walk of shame. Please comment and share your more deeply loved and most shameful tunes you still put on the hi-fi now and again when no one’s around. I promise I won’t tell.
