Galway Girl always sounded to me like a song left over from his busking days. I think it awful, but a lot of people think it the best song so what do I know?

I say always but I think I've only heard it twice maybe..

In my job I have to listen to Galway Girl and Shape of You around 6-8 times a day each and it never gets any easier

the pretentiousness of Castle on the Hill makes it the worst for me

fake pathos

actually I have to listen to all these songs every day, i just didn't realise they were these songs and they were by him. they're all extremely awful

most of these are absolute abominations but I won’t lie, I actually don’t mind castle on the hill

actually COTH sounds like the work of one of those dodgy bands that bono would’ve signed to mother records in 1980-something, and the hothouse flowers weren’t ever that high on my kill list so it gets a pass from me

Castle On The Hill is part of the recent tradition of MOR radio songs that go 'I remember when I was a little boy / So so long ago now / Running around the back alleys smoking dope and getting in trouble / That was so long ago now I can barely remember / I'm 26 BTW'

Badgers (dog latin), Friday, 19 January 2018 11:34 (four months ago) Permalink

don’t know how new it is, bryan adams made ‘summer of 69’ when he was *checks* 26!

important difference there is that summer of 69 slaps fucking hard

It took me ages to work out what 'Perfect' sounded exactly-but-not-quite like and it's:

Flightless Bird, American Mouth by Iron & Wine which I love to bits but now kind of hate because of this song

Every time I'm subjected to Galway Girl, I kill a kestrel. That's on YOUR conscience, Sheerhan.

Is this at all connected to the tradition of campfire-EDM where a father gives the narrator-son advice like "one day you'll be old and dead, so you should live while you're young and I dunno drop some G lmao"?
