your music sucks. who the fuck are you? opinions are like assholes and so are you...

i'm doing a karaoke competition...Novak's, the bar where i usually sing karaoke, has a contest every year. i've survived the first two weeks, and now i have to pick my songs for week 3.

the first two weeks didn't have themes. everyone just got to pick two songs and sing them. from here on out, there are themes...we still sing two songs: one that we choose, and the other which has to relate to the week's theme. next week's theme is Top 40. we have some leeway; the songs don't have to be on the current Top 40 chart, but it has to have been on the chart in 2002 or later. so, of course, i'm flipping through the last few years' Top 40 charts to decide what i'm going to sing.

the verdict? Top 40 charts suck.

i know that's obvious. most of the music they play on the radio is terrible. but, i've never before had the reason or the impetus to flip through chart after chart after chart like i am right now. i'm amazed at the sheer volume of schlock that has bombarded us from the airwaves over the last six years. i want the nineties back...i'll take boy bands and pop tarts any day over Avril Lavigne and Soulja Boy.

i always knew there was a reason i stopped listening to Top 40 radio after about eighth grade.

p.s...if anyone can identify the [decidedly not Top 40] song quote in the post title, i owe you a beer.
