The Song I Hate

So I don't read the AV Club all that often, but when I do...well it's something all right. I recently discovered the "Hatesong" feature by them, which is a fascinating little feature. So I wondered: "What song do I hate?" Hrmmmmmmmm. I mean I like a lot of music; evident from my posts obvs. 

I mean I doubt they will ask me anytime soon.

So here I go!
The Song I Hate By Britt


Ahem, "Picture" by Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow.



To me this is like hearing someone masturbate on broken glass. Or it's like listening to a dolphin get cleavered. Or a blind guinea pig scream at the top of her lungs (I hear that all the time, actually).

Don't get me wrong: I love Sheryl Crow. I think she's talented and makes some quality music, but that doesn't mean she's incapable of a giant turd every now and then. As for Kid Rock, to me he is the kind of person I sort of despise. He is a glorified redneck. Granted, that could be just an act. But he is more or less a "Good Old Boy." And I am basically the staunch opposite, so the math adds up. (Although I do admire his business savvy). 

But also the song sounds like a shitty guy's confession. A shitty guy who can't keep it in his pants. And really, I have no tolerance for infidelity or cheaters, so he should really jack off into a garbage disposal instead of turning his dilemma into another crappy country ballad.

Wank wank wank wank

Instrumental interlude

Anyway, another reason I dislike this song is because it gets stuck in my head. All the time. And I feel like I'm being waterboarded. So I guess Kid gets to have the last laugh. That cocky asshole.

Conclusion:  I rather listen to the "Teletubbies" soundtrack on repeat.

What's your least favorite song?


AHHHH

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
