A Hopeless Place

Now and then I'll listen to pop music and some of it I enjoy, but recently there is one I hear fairly often that just gives me that screeching "nails-on-a-chalkboard" feeling. I guess everyone has a preference and while some folks may really like this song as well as the artist, I simply do not.

Rihanna's We Found Love has intensely repetitive lyrics, comes replete with jerky organ music that reminds me of what you might hear at a major league baseball game (but not as good), and in several parts of the song there is another synthesized buzzing that sounds a whole lot like someone randomly blowing into a toy kazoo.

I'm obviously in the minority here as I'm sure this song gets lots of airplay, hits on YouTube, and downloads. Of course, I felt about the same for one of the most downloaded songs ever -- The Black Eyed Peas', "I've Got a Feeling". So if you ever want insightful recording industry critiques, please do not look my way.
