Singing vegetables are offensive to everyone.
I don’t think I know that song.
Their best song ever!
I agree to be united by Rihanna, Gaga and Beyonce. What’s the difference with the underground anyway. It’s all people. Rather leave your reluctance at home. The world often passes you by when you frown.
Actually we’re united by our status as first world citizens. The song doesn’t make it explicit but it’s a piece of the developed world night life culture which in itself is proof of our culture of plenty. Did you know 20% of the world’s population controls 80% of the world’s resources? If you dislike being rich so much there are plenty of places where the norm is to be poor, and there are plenty of poor people who would kill to take your spot. I, for one, like the song.
The song is so badly recorded (the vocals in particular, but the way the degree of compression makes the snare duck is pretty bad too) it’s probably “authentic”. (Riffing on past stuff here about indie aesthetes prizing imperfections as signs of authenticity.)
I don’t dislike being rich. I dislike bland, non-offensive music.
And at what point did “there are lots of poor people in the world” stop being a problem to solve, and become a moral majority who will crush our wicked “get enough to eat and adequate medical care” ways?
On the other hand, it least it’s not My Effing Humps. Or the Christmas music that’s kicked in in shops all round here. One more exposure to Wizzard’s “I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day” and I’m gonna go radge.
omg the music seriously is half the reason i can’t stand to go shopping…or even turn on the radio, mostly. music that is engineered to appeal to the lowest common denominator is offensive to my very soul and can actually trigger a major depressive episodes if i’m not careful to cleanse it thoroughly after contact.
It’s not even the best group with a singing vegetable, and they could have saved so much money doing Silly Songs with Larry instead.
