It's an awesome film. Pure fun wrapped in cheese. A lot better than that TV show some years back.
And The Sopranos.
Also Bryan Adams' "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You", which has strong nostalgic value, but my fecking God it was everywhere around 1991/1992.
It was a rhetorical question, something you don't necessarily have to answer. Why don't you simmer down?
Could that be in part as that was the most recent version prior to the TV show, it's what the TV show was compared against.
I'm perfectly entitled to post without being mini-modded by you, son.
Some people want to fill the world with silly love songs. What's wrong with that? I'd like to know.
Anything by Taylor Swift.
I avoid the radio, since there's like five people picking the playlists countrywide.
I suppose you have similar jokes waiting in the wings.
You'd think that people would have had enough of "Silly love songs."
But I look around me and I see it isn't so.
Love doesn't come in a minute, sometimes it doesn't come at all.
Anything by John Mellencamp. Don't get me wrong, solid performer, but they are very American songs that to me don't sit well in an Australian playlist.
And I still can't listen to Lay Your Love On Me by Racey. FTN.
If I hear "Royals" or "Team" by Lorde one more time, I'm going to have a psychotic break.
...whereas they're songs I can and do listen to over and over again without a qualm.
Unlike "Happy", which is the sort of relentlessly played abomination of an excuse for a song that almost makes me wish I was deaf.
To each their own, of course.
"Shiny Happy People" and "Losing My Religion" by REM
"Sit Down" by James
"Come On Eileen" by Dexys Midnight Runners
"The Whole of the Moon" by The Waterboys
It seems that the radio stations here believe these are the only songs the artists in question have ever recorded.
I guess 'Gangnam Style' has died a well deserved death and disappearance from the airwaves? At least my gym hasn't played it recently.
"Come On Eileen" has actually come full circle for me. It was played to death when it came out in the 80's and got to the point where I couldn't stand it. These days though, I enjoy hearing it again.
Some of that might be down to nostalgia.
