Okay, I grant that I may have been in a slightly bad moment when I wrote that post, skaltezon.

So in honor of that possibility I listened to Animal Collective's "I've got mine" again. I tried ignoring the faux-child's voice. I tried. I tried.

But I failed.

Now the song just makes me dissolve into chuckling laughter when I hear it because I *still* don't like the song and its limp-along sound.

I dislike the sound of the song so much that when I first heard it I didn't even bother to look up its lyrics, and you know me: I usually LOVE to read the lyrics of songs.

So I just looked up the lyrics, to try to give the song more effort. They've got a good message: we've all got troubles that sometimes wax and wane out of our control, and people do crappy things to each other. They're a little cryptic, though: "when will turn to sand this bell stains our hands." If they are going to use a metaphor, I'd like its meaning to be clearer. Is the bell the clamoring of the troubled soul?

I also don't like their video.

i hate blinded by the light by manfred mann cause they sucked all the life and energy out of the great springsteen original and added lifeless vocals and made it bland enough for oldies radio

I was reading the "favourite love song" thread this morning and realized that most of the songs I hate appear to be over there. Here's one: "Evergreen" by Barbra Streisand.

Why do I hate this song? Because the song sounds too syrupy sweet and the description of love too glowing, self-satisfied and cliche. "You and I will make each night a first, ev'ry day a beginning." Oh, please. If a love song about sleeping doesn't include snoring and morning breath, then it's overly romanticized. "Love soft as an easy chair." Even easy chairs get uncomfortable sometimes.

Now, I may just be having a jaded moment, but I feel irritated by the swelling euphoria Streisand sails on in this song that intentionally ignores the negative aspects of love tsunamis. I understand the song is meant to portray only the positive experiences of love, yet I feel it goes overboard in its adulation of the loving relationship described. Plus, I don't like her voice.

The pictures in the video were nice, though.

i'm sorry to disagree but this is one of the best videos ever made in human music history.

Irrelevant, but I felt it needed to be said.
