On... good bad songs
LEMAR, DANCE WITH YOU
Note the extremely short use of a voice equalizer on ONE WORD.
Wow, that is some cheap-ass production values right there.
Loving Paris Hilton songs means having conversations like
this with Chris, my lovely then-art director who is truly into music and used
to be in a band and everything:
Me: This is the best song.
Chris: No, it’s really not.
Me: Paris Hilton is really talented.
Chris: No, she isn't.
Chris: No, you don’t.
(Chris and I found common ground with early 80s new wave
music, and this was our Friday song, but it is a really genuinely good song and
thus has no place in this post.)
Loving Paris Hilton songs also means bobbing around the DJ box using a
bendy straw as a Madonna microphone and trying to get the Djs attention to ask:
DJ: (incredulous pause) No.
Me: (shouting) WHY NOT?
