Shove That Umbrella Ella Eh Eh Down Your ...

The song “Beautiful Girls”, in any version, shape or form, is making me go suicidal. An acoustic version is NOT an improvement. Next thing you know, they’ll be singing an acoustic low, low, low, low, low.

In related news, I really couldn’t stand most of the dregs, sorry, songs (or what they would pass off as songs) these days. It’s funny, because it so often surprises people that there are songs I never listen to, or that I actually don’t know ALL songs. Remember, I am the same person who mangles, swaps and screws lyrics.

In other news, yeah, people, I don’t have good tastes, if taste = joining the bandwagon, so don’t react strongly when I say that Coldplay is ripping off U2.

Anyway. If I can be allowed to recommend a nice current song, try The Ting Ting’s That’s Not My Name.

This post is brought to you by Jela, who finally understood and embraced the merits of Jpop songs.

i agree with this a HUNDRED and ONE percent! real music has gone to the crapper! (e.g. tagalog versions of low, bartender, and payong payong payong) everytime i hear that song, i just wanna kill myself!

fyi coldplay does sound like u2 on their new album and when i read about it, it was because coldplay's new album was produced by u2 producer...

Hi oliboy! Thanks for dropping by!

About Coldplay - hmm, I got that U2-ripoff feeling even before their latest album. Anyway, I just find it amusing that some people are ready to jump at my throat the first time I said that out loud. I mean, I do like Coldplay and most of their songs, but apparently I'm not allowed to criticize them! :)
