Rebecca Black is the name on everyone’s lips at the moment, but for all the wrong reasons. If you haven’t heard of her, she’s a 13 year old from California and released her song “Friday” a couple of weeks ago. To date, the video has amassed over 35.5 million YouTube views! However, mainly from the general consensus that this is the worst song ever…..
The song has all the right current features to make it a pop hit – a teenage unknown American, Auto-tune, a rap, catchy pop tune with simple(!) lyrics. Such lyrical mastery as:
Yesterday was Thursday / Today it is Friday / We, we, we so excited / We so excited / We gonna have a ball today / Tomorrow is Saturday / and Sunday comes afterwards / I don’t want this weekend to end.
Well one thing is for certain, she has made her name known, however whether it is indeed the worst song ever is certainly up for debate. For now, she can join her fellow pop comrades who turn the Auto-tune up to max, create the most moronic lyrics that can think of, and get some token black guy to rap in…
Where did the truly annoying pop go?
