Remember not that long ago when we shared our favorite song lyrics? Well, it can't be all sunshine and rainbows and well-written things around here, can it? Thus am I bringing back Strong Dislike Monday for the purpose of finding out which song lyrics we hate.
There's a lot of poorly-written or just plain irritating stuff out there. I know I'll think of more bad stuff in the next day or two, but for now, I submit these two lyrics. The first is from Beyonce's Irreplaceable and is evidence of serious song-writing laziness.
I could have another you in a minute
Matter fact he'll be here in a minute.
Really, Beyonce? Rhyming minute with minute? How utterly devoid of effort.
I firmly believe this second lyric to be one of the worst song lines ever written and recorded. It is from You're Beautiful by James Blunt.
There must be an angel with a smile on her face
When she thought up that I should be with you.
Ok, not only is that preposterous, but the verb tenses! It's present! It's past! MAKE UP YOUR MIND.
I don't even hate either of these songs, but these little parts of them get me all kinds of annoyed. But you should feel free to leave songs you hate either in their entirety or only in part. You know you have them. Let it out, Internet. We promise to be equally irritated on your behalf.
