30 Day Song Challenge: My Least Favorite Song
First of all, is this guy even singing? He's doing this weird thing where he sort of sounds like he is yelling? It's very whiny. I don't like guys who sing like this. I like my male singers to at least sound like they're men? Unless you're twee, then you're off the hook (talking to you Kip Berman.) The cutesy ukulele in the background combined with that sickeningly mushy gushy chorus can only tell me that this song is meant for 12 year old girls, yet I've repeatedly found myself among 17-18 year old girls who swoon over this. REALLY? You've never heard a love song more compelling and touching THAN THIS? To each her own, I guess. Please don't ignore these amazing lyrics either. "I'm so obsessed / my heart is bound to beat right out my untrimmed chest" Seriously? And on top of all of that, Train is how old? The lead singer is 42! And he's singing a love song like this?! Train has been swell in the past. They were never a band I actually liked but I still respected their music. But this song...this song makes my ears cry, enough said.
