Today's Kids Don't Demand Real Music


 I listen to the radio, a lot. And every once in a while, I'll hear a song in which the music is tolerable, or cute, or even nice to hear.  But the lyrics piss me off. And that's when I play a changing only one or two phrases, or a title, make the lyrics work for me.

Here are a couple of examples:

1) Train has a new song called "Drive-By", which, in addition to being a tasteless use of gang warfare lingo to describe his romantic modus operandi, seems wrong at it's core.  The protagonist is trying to convince a woman to give him a chance at a long-term relationship, even though he's been a fleety guy with women, in the past.  He attempts to convince her:  "This is not a drive-by".  Baby, that one-night-stand we had?  That was some mind-blowing sex---so good that I didn't leave immediately afterwards.  Do you know how great that is?  Let me compare my love for you to a garbage-liner.  Convinced?  It's not like I'm going on a mobile killing spree!

You can see that this makes no sense.  It's unlikely to be persuasive.  But change the title (and chorus) from "Drive-By" to the (obviously untrue) "Drunk Dial". makes sense now, yes?

 2) Jazon Mraz, love him or hate him, is a gifted singer and songwriter.  But in "I'm Yours", he kills me, every time, with "It's our God-forsaken right to be loved...."  [Don't worry, I keep being reborn]  Change "God-forsaken" to "God-gvien", and the song works again.  Well, except "our name is our virtue", which sounds like an ad for an insurance company.  Change that to "we are our own virtue", and it works, again...or "beauty's not our (only) virtue"... the game with me.  What word, phrase, or title can you change in popular songs to make them "work", so that you can enjoy the music?

[Need some ideas of songs to fix?  

Here's an easy one---just fix the grammar, without ruining the meter, in fun's "We Are Young": "So if by the time the bar closes, and you feel like falling down, I'll carry you home."

Or go with just about anything from Kelly Clarkson, and you'll find one line that they couldn't be bothered to fix.  Or...there are usually very few words in a Nicki Minaj song, so just write all the lyrics to one of her songs to make it palatable, fi you can.

ESPN's Dan Le Betard conducted a stinging interview with MLB commissioner Rob Manfred on Wednesday, grilling los angeles angels of anaheim jersers the commissioner on the details of the Miami Marlins sale to a group led by Derek Jeter. The conversation was contentious from the start, with Le Betard saying, "Baseball has been really bad to South Florida for many years, and I don't believe baseball deserves a single customer in South Florida," just moments before introducing the commissioner. It only got more heated from there. Le Betard bluntly asked whether or not Manfred knew of Jeter's plan to cleveland indians jersers slash the Marlins' payroll. Manfred denied having knowledge of any of Jeter's specific plans for the group while going through the approval process. "We are starting with a chicago white sox jersers lie, Rob," washington nationals jersers Le Batard said. "That's where we're starting." Manfred continued to insist that decisions such as the miami marlins jersers ones Jeter has made to cut the Marlins' budget were made at a local level, independent of his purview as commissioner. "We did not have player-specific plans from the Miami Marlins or any other team that we approve in the ownership process." On Thursday, Le Batard said during his show that he had seen the "Project Wolverine" boston red sox jersers proposal Jeter's group washington nationals jersers put together for MLB and knew the commissioner was not being truthful. This was echoed by Barry Jackson at the Miami Herald cincinnati reds jersers who reported that Jeter's plan was vetted and approved by MLB, and that that plan included slashing the team's budget from $115 million to $85 million. "A source directly involved in the Marlins sales process, after hearing the Le Batard interview, said, via text: 'Commissioner detroit tigers jersers said was not aware of [Jeter] plan to slash payroll. Absolutely not true. They request and receive the operating plan from all bidders. "'Project Wolverine [the name for Jeter's plan] called on his group to reduce payroll to $85 million. This was vetted and approved by MLB prior to approval by MLB. Every [Jeter] investor and non investor has the Wolverine financial plan of slashing payroll to $85 million. wholesale baseball jersers Widely circulated."
