A lot of people think that Miley Cyrus is promoting promiscuity in America's youth. Other people think that she's exploiting racial stereotypes. But say what you will, that racist whore can sing. Wrecking Ball has become the theme song for everything that's wrong with today's youth, but if you actually stop to listen to it you'll realize that it's actually an awesome '80s power ballad for the new millennium. It's like if Pat Benetar catered to the pedophile demographic.
Hurl all the criticisms you want at Mr. Martin's magnum opus. At the end of the day, if this song comes on and you don't immediately start wiggling your hips it means you must be paralyzed from the waist down, and I feel really bad right now. I'm sorry I yelled at you just now. You're so brave.
Continuing the list is another latino hunk who is not at all indicative any secret fetishes I may have. People dismiss the song as "Schmaltzy" "Cliche" and "By Enrique Iglesias", and while all those criticisms are valid, there's also no denying that the song is romantic as balls. If there is any justice in the world, this song will replace the Wedding March in a couple of years, and instead of just walking down the aisle to it, people will run, in slow motion, towards their fiancés, and away from an exploding building.
Sure the song is repetitive, annoying, and really, really, dumb... when your sober. But listen to this bad boy drunk and tell me it's not the most amazing feeling you've ever experienced. The song allows you to step into the mind of a frat bro for four minutes, and finally realize why frat bros always have a stupid smile on their face.
I know it was cool to say that Ja Rule didn't have any street cred at your sixth grade but it's time to let it go. People hate Ja Rule because they assume he's a rap artist, but the truth is he's a pop artist who happens to rap, and as pop artists go, he's a pretty damn good one. One day, Ja Rule and Ashanti will replace peanut butter and jelly as the greatest combination of all time.
Music doesn't always have to be good. Sometimes it just has to be fun, and say what you will about the Disney Channel, but they know how to make a fun song. Sure, the Disney Channel has never produced the Beatles, but they did produce a Hilary Duff Christmas song that features Lil. Romeo performing a rap version of "Twas The Night Before Christmas", and in the end, isn't that just as good?
Hating country music has become so popular that hipsters are starting to like country music. That said, saying you hate all country music is the biggest blanket statement since "Hey I'm cold. Can you hand me that blanket." (Yeah, I went there.) Yeah, there's a lot of terrible country music out there, just like there is a lot of terrible regular music, but saying you hate a whole genre based on a few terrible artists is musical racism, and I won't stand for it. Also, I guarantee any band you consider "good" has been greatly influenced by country music in some way.
