I'm waiting to hear some good summer music but nothing seems to be standing out. The songs that get a lot of air time are pretty lame. Is this really the best we can do:
Panic at the disco: Nine in the afternoon
Okay, nine in the afternoon. We heard you. It wasn't really that funny the first time you said it. This band is dorky. And even being English wouldn't excuse them from that.
Deathcab for cutie: I will possess your heart
The band is alright but I've alway thought they should be better considering how cool their name is. This particular song takes awhile to get going and lends itself easily to changing the lyrics in a dumb way...
You've gotta pay on time, Love
You've gotta pay on time you see
Or your going to find, Love
I'll repossess your car
Weezer: Pork and Beans
This band has established themselves. They can rock. Their big problem is that they write fad music. Catchy music that comes on strong at first and then is less and less fun every time you hear it. The video is good for internet people, if you only watch it once.
There is no part of me that says, "I really wish someone would come along and take a powerful Woodsy-the-owl-type stance and just tell the world that they don't give a HOOT about what we think."
I'll tell you if I hear anything good.
