Best & Worst Songs of 2009…

Best & Worst Songs of 2009…

My apologies for being 9 days late, but I’ve been going back and forth on the best song of 2009 and in the end, I copped out and declared a tie because I couldn’t choose between the two.  On the other hand, choosing the worst was not challenging in the least.


Animal Collective: “My Girls”

Watch the video HERE

Isn’t much that I feel I need
a solid soul and the blood I bleed
With a little girl, and by my spouse
I only want a proper house

There isn’t much that I feel I need:
a solid soul and the blood I bleed.
But with a little girl, and by my spouse
I only want a proper house

I don’t care for fancy things
Or to take part in a pressured race.
But to provide for them when they ask
I will, with heart, on my father’s grave

On my father’s grave

I don’t mean
To seem like I care about material things,
Like our social status,
I just want
Four walls and adobe slabs
For my girls


David Bazan: “Please, Baby, Please”

Listen HERE

When I woke up the next morning,
You looked right through me
Through your eyes crying,
I could finally see

They said, “please baby please”

When I called you from Atlanta,
You refused to speak
Not three days sober,
Begging for a drink

And I said, “please baby please”

Those two pairs of big blue eyes
Stare me down, watching me fall
But what makes a man realize
That he’s about to lose it all?

Sunrise at the county lock-up
Now our baby’s twenty-three
She was out late drinking,
Killed a mother of three

She said, “please daddy please”

and now for THE WORST:

The Black Eyed Peas: “I’ve Gotta Feeling”

This song is easily as bad as the other two are good.  And if you’re unsold on this being the worst song of 2009 and possibly of all time, please feel free to read the lyrics here.
