"Soldiers come quickly, I feel the earth beneath my feet.
I’m feeling badly, it’s not an attempt at decency.
And if you’re well off, well then I’m happy some for you.
But I’d rather not celebrate my defeat and humiliation here with you.
Someone come quickly, this place was built for moving out.
Leave behind buildings, the city planners got mapped out.
Bring with you history, and make your hard earned feast.
Then we’ll go to Omaha to work and exploit the booming music scene and humility.
And we’ve been talking all night….
Oh god come quickly, the execution of all things.
Let’s start with the bears and the air and mountains, rivers, and streams.
Then we’ll murder what matters to you and move on to your neighbors and kids.
Crush all hopes of happiness with disease ‘cause of what you did.
And lastly, you’re all alone with nothing left but sleep.
But sleep never comes to you, it’s just the guilt and forever wakefulness of the weak.
It’s just you and me….
The execution of all things."

An encapsulation of my musical taste:

metaphorge: (kallisti)

Their latest album, We are the Night, is uniformly excellent... their best since Surrender.
metaphorge: (make it STOP!)
Disclaimer, I have not heard the song, but I don't think I need to... the title alone makes me want to hit things, both textually and conceptually.

The number three single on the Billboard chart this week?

T-Pain featuring Yung Joc-"Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin')"

The spelling alone makes my teeth hurt.

In any case, I now have to quote MC Lars:
This popular subgenre is brought to you by materialism.
We'd like to thank Bentley, Aliz© champagne, and Sean
Jean clothing. We'd like to thank the record industry for
Marketing hip-hop stereotypes to 12 year olds and a pop
Culture that unquestioningly consumes vapid,
Superficial entertainment.Read more... )

Phrase about my car, rhyme about my crew (Volvo!)
Rap about how much more crunk I am than you
Rhyme about my rims, rhyme about my bling
Chorus where I scream cause I don't know how to sing
Rhyme supporting guns, and also drinking 40's
Misogynist rhyme about banging lots of shorties
Rhyme about my dough, and then some made up lyrics
Get off the gas you swinga, check the deuce, yo sabiirit

[CHORUS]
Generic crunk rap! (What) Generic crunk rap! (Yeah)
Generic crunk rap! (What) We don't mess around
Generic crunk rap! (Yeah) Generic crunk rap! (What)
Generic crunk rap! (Yeah) You like our dirty sound
Buy clothes (Get crunk) Hennesy (Get crunk)
Escalades (Get crunk) Spend money (Get crunk)
Buy cars (Get crunk) Take shots (Get crunk)
Have sex (Get crunk) Spend money (Get crunk)

Grandmaster Flash, I'm sorry but we're killing hip-hop
KRS, I'm sorry but we're killing hip-hop
Run-DMC, I'm sorry but we're killing hip-hop
But who can argue with the charts
When we're sitting at the top?
Rakim, I'm sorry but we're killing hip-hop
Chuck D, I'm sorry but we're killing hip-hop
De La Soul, I'm sorry but we're killing hip-hop
And we're making so much money
That we ain't about to stop!

I'm now going to listen to some Deltron 3030 to make the pain go away.
Edit: Against my better judgement I looked up the lyrics to "Buy You a Drank (Shawty Snappin')". It is, perhaps, the ultimate Generic Crunk Rap.

Further edit: In the interest of quasi-journalistic integrity, I listened to the song. Actually, I listened to about half the song... I just could not make it all the way through....

Billboard's Number One hits, continued from here.

It's interesting to observe the trends of what sort of songs are on the chart for what length off time according to how Billboard has changed its policies on how it determines the Hot 100 over the years, with a major change coming in the early 90s, with the chart now skewing very heavily towards a small number of R&B/Hip-Hop singles....
metaphorge: (blow your mind)
Here's a list of Billboard's Number One hits, all the way back to 1955, which is where I consider that the era of "Rock & Roll" really began (with the chart ascendancy of "Rock Around the Clock". 1955, 1956,1957 and 1958 prior to August are from the "Top 100" chart, which presaged Billboard's invention of the "Hot 100" to determine what was "the Number One hit".

It took me long enough to get around to it, but I've now uploaded my photographs of the Secret Chiefs 3 show at the Great American Music Hall on 03 June.

I'm really enjoying doing concert photography; I need a new camera that better handles low-lighting conditions.

There are few things that judicious application of Aimee Mann, Mary Chapin Carpenter and Neko Case in the right combination cannot make better (and a special shout-out is in order to [livejournal.com profile] johnnybrainwash for turning me on to Ms. Case in the first place).
