You mean "My Humps" isn't the world's most unwanted song? Who knew.
I'm not clicking that link ... nothing good can come of it.
it's got a good beat and i can dance to it, so i give a sixty....KEvron
evidently the artist(?) assembled all sorts of elements to make it as annoying as possible. but i actually rather like it. it is nuts in a twisted and comical way. where else are you going to hear an operatic soprano rapping? there's tuba break beats, children shouting the praises of various holidays, including labour day. this thing is crazy brilliant. i listened to all 25 minutes and let's just say it covers a lot of ground.go on LuLu. click the little blue words. you know you want to. promise i won't say anything mean about michael bubbly.
Oh suuuuuure ... bring up teh Buble.
You do know the backstory here, PSA? Brainchild of a pair of Russian conceptual artists who had previously undertaken a similar expirement in visual art, specifically painting. Komar & Melamid also put together 'The World's Most Wanted Song'. A total borefest. A 5-minute love ballad, of course, vaguely soft jazz/r & b. nuts in a twisted and comical wayAn unholy marriage of Malcolm McLaren, Nina Hagen, Frank Zappa, Sun Ra, Bizet, Morricone, Aaron Copeland, John Philip Sousa, Stephen Foster, Brian Wilson in his Pets Sound phase, Fred Penner, Plastic People of the Universe and holiday music along with most instruments that many people intensely dislike - accordion, banjo, harp, tuba and bagpipes. So naturally I downloaded it.An opera singer rapping about cowboys over what sounds like a twisted mashup of New Orleans second line and and a movement from the Grand Canyon suite? Now there's something the music industry never considered. And that was only part of the track.
I think I'm scarred for life.

art of noise having a shit on they might be giants.KEvron
Yeah, that's a pretty good description too. I'm not quite sure why PSA thinks this is so fantastic. It strikes me as overly discombobulated.
i sat through it twice! laughed just as hard the second time those tone deaf brats shrieked "susan's on the phone, etc".still, they're no devotchka....KEvron
I dunno. I made it through about a minute and a half and got totally bored to tears. Once it became clear what the joke was, there wasn't much point in listening to the rest. I skipped ahead a couple of times, and it wasn't remarkably different, so it was giving up time.Cool idea, but like Saturday Night Live sketches, kept going after it stopped being funny.
I'm with PSA. The children are hilarious.
Luckilly, the sound drivers on my desktop are all fucked up and I don't have my laptop with me so I am immune to your brain worms.
