 [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/MUkAKwEwzpk" width="425" height="350" wmode="transparent" /]Bon Jovi feat. LeAnn Rimes- Till We Ain’t Strangers Anymore- Wow, she looks so much better grown up.  This is some sappy shit, too.  What she lost in baby fat she more than makes up for in sentimental country wailings.  Ok, I suppose she doesn’t actually wail, but it is country, and it all sounds like wailing to me.  I was like four when I saw my first Bon Jovi video.  He looks exactly the same, except he sounds more and more like Rod Stewart with every new song.  He gets her almost naked in the middle of the city, and then he just sits there.  Fucking idiot! [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/fVGk5qm6Mac" width="425" height="350" wmode="transparent" /]Paul McCartney- Ever Present Past- Hes all confused walking around his ugly mansion and worrying about how he has too little time and too many clones.  The song is pop-ey and sortof dumb, but with that signature Paul melody.  At least he’s not hiding away in England somewhere outside of discretion. He comes real with it- full mental inventory.  Actually, there’s no way I want to know his full mental inventory… Luckily, this song has no catchy staying power like that monstrosity of a band The Dey, and I retain my distinct aversion to Brits… in fact, this whole video is so British… just lame, lame, lame.  Are they line dancing???  And yes, I hate Monty Python too, and that movie Shaun of the Dead…

    First, why is country music just exactly what was happening in Adult Soft Contemporary ten years ago? It’s awful. It was ten years ago and now it is awful and dated. Jon! You have kids and torn jeans older than her! So, full agreement here. But get off of Paul’s back. He isn’t much of a dancer (Ringo was the dancer, as we saw in Hard Day’s Night) but the man is in his sixties! And it’s catchy fluff! What do you want from an elderly McCartney? OK Computer? And you don’t like Monty Python? My whole world just got a little sadder.

    OK, that McCartney song is fairly catchy…

    Seconded on the “country.” That and gangsta club bangas are the most creatively bankrupt genres of music in the world. But at least the Yungs of the world still have the beat. Christ.
