@ this thread

seriously, who actually buys this shit and allows these hacks to make a living? if eazy-e has taught us nothing else, he's taught us that you can only write so many songs about getting a bj.

On behalf of Canada; I'm so, so sorry. First Celine Dion, and now Nickleback... Where did we go wrong



I mean... seriously...

"
And I don't see too well, don't sing too well
And I settle to scream
Just grab your shit, and leave with it
They won't make no statues of you
"


They won't make no statues of you? ...

It all started with Doug Henning. That was the beginning of the Canadian Doofus Invasion. However, you did give us Elisha Cuthbert, so I can forgive the Doug Henning years. But Celine and Nickelback, that's gonna take some work.

I'm not really a Nickelback fan, but must we all be bigoted against lyrics that don't attempt to be all fancy-arse and deeply poetic...

Why can't lyrics just tell a story simplistically? Why must we all expect every song to be Stipe-ian, Bono-lese, or quite ludicrously Kanye West-ian, or Yorke-ian...


Take the Gin Blossoms, Hey Jealousy for example. An utterly gorgeous song, and while the lyrics don't attempt to instil the Gin Blossoms as the lyrical-equlivalent of Shakespeare, it still a splendid tune and it would probably fail to invoke the same feeling or enjoyment, if the lyricist was aiming to be all pretentious, fancy or avant-gardish.

Some things should be kept simple....

Minimalism....

Chad?

Simple and minimalistic are just fine. I'm all for it. I have issue, however, when lyrics cross over into "fucking stupid", a la Nickelback. When the lyrics sound like something I wrote on my way to English class when I was a sophomore, I feel the urge to mock.

Whilst you might find the lyrics of a song like "Figured You Out" stupid, others may find them to be just the tonic for the particular period in their lives or a particular feeling...

"I like your pants around your feet..." - I, for one, can identify with what Mr Kroeger is saying here.

And why would a set of lyrics written while going to english class when someone is a sophomore, necessarilly be bad?

It IS the same song, broken down. It actually sounds a little better that way.(Key word: LITTLE)
