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"
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"
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.
