What is WTF?! Wednesday? Think of it as the antithesis of your standard edition of Kick-Ass Lyrics of the Day. This is a showcase of some of the best of the worst lyrics I can find; the laughably lame, the unendingly uninspiring, the insultingly inane. The songs that don’t make sense, or sound like something you wrote in your middle school diary when you were crushing on the boy in the 3rd row. I’ll be scraping the bottom of the barrel of my music collection and scouring the radio for the latest from Hannah Montana and Toby Keith. The worse, the better.
I’m kind of excited! This could be fun! Don’t be afraid to make suggestions!
For the first edition of WTFW I’m going to pull out a song from 2004 that has been under my skin for the last seven years. The whole song is so simple, so singsong-y, so predictable, it just… blah! It leaves a funny taste in your mouth when you sing along. Which you can do from the first time you ever hear it. Because a two-year old could have written it after watching a Barney Sing-a-long. This band has other songs that range from Meh to Pretty Decent, but this particular offering somehow manages to suck andblow at the same time. Unfortunately, it’s also the band’s most commercially popular song (thanks, Wikipedia) and peaked at #2 on Billboard, number freaking one on Modern Rock Tracks.
You should be ashamed of yourselves, America. Go think about what you’ve done.
I’m not a perfect person
There’s [sic] many things I wish I didn’t do
But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you
