Rolling Worst Music of 2018

this quote from post malone really says a lot about everything's suckitude

“If you’re looking for lyrics, if you’re looking to cry, if you’re looking to think about life, don’t listen to hip-hop. There’s great hip-hop songs where they talk about life and they spit that real shit, but right now, there’s not a lot of people talking about real shit... Whenever I want to cry, whenever I want to sit down and have a nice cry, I’ll listen to some Bob Dylan. Or whenever I’m trying to have a good time and stay in a positive mood, I listen to hip-hop. Because it’s fun. I think hip-hop is important because it brings people together in a beautiful, happy way.”

my single is being released in January as originally tweeted. Nothing’s changed. I’ll anounce when I’m ready, a few days before.

Trying to imagine the hypothetical human being who would enjoy this song is even more difficult than trying to imagine the hypothetical human being who would still care about the 50 Shades series three movies in.

The actual YouTube comments on this thing are pretty funny, btw: lots of back and forth about whether the song was made for people who were kids in 2002 vs people who were *born in* 2002.

Well, that song is woeful. Are there any other songs mining the 00s for "nostalgia feels" yet or will this be the beginning of a new trend in pop?

triggercut, Thursday, 3 May 2018 08:55 (one month ago) Permalink

Also, I feel like Alan Partridge saying this, but the "now we're under the covers" lyric caught me off guard. You think she's still singing about being 11 at that point. I know you only have to wait a couple of beats to find out they're now 18, but for a couple of moments there I've got an image of 2 naked 11 year olds in bed together. Poor songwriting!

Mental health is another topic usually shielded from pop music and, as a young person myself, seeing someone like yourself addressing mental health feels incredibly refreshed and necessary. Why do you think it is still considered a taboo topic in music?
Suicidal thoughts is my biggest inspiration I think. I think suicidal thoughts are more common than you think and I want people to know that. Things can look so damn sparkly on the internet but behind all that most people are terrified of everything.

oh yeah that's def 2016, didn't even check since it showed in my recommended videos (what have I been doing on yt) and just assumed it was new

the song is perhaps not that horrible, just sounds like a very contrived Uffie pastiche, and it def sounds like they did not put in much effort (maybe they should have just asked someone for help with the lyrics/structure, I mean it sounds like something you come up with after getting high or on a night on the town, but then you take that "idea" and work with it) anyway sry for the 2016 derail
