Living For The Weekend.
Absolutely superb song.
I think I might start liking them.
Hard To Beat was quite a catchy song.
But the one that goes "nah nah nah nah nah, straight outta west london" is good.
not only is it an absolutely dire song, but it is indicative of everything that is wrong with British culture.
HATE. HATE. HATE.
if I had explained WHY I hated it, that's what I would have said
I was discussing this with my lover friend the other day.
Well, not discussing. We just kind of went into a role play.
"Goin' out tonight. Living for the weekend man."
"Just got paid."
especially that song.
I don't know whether it's my taste dramatically improving, or DiS has poisoned me to them.
I suspect the former.
but I think Hard To Beat is brilliant.
You're all so wrong.
The lyrics, I will agree, are absolutely the fucking opposite of what make good lyrics.
But, that opening little phrase. Fucking brilliant little 'riff'.
I love it.
it's really tacky.
apart from the lyrics, they're using it on THAT carling advert too :(((((((((
is hard to beat.
its well marketed though. Carling telling bland boring people who drink carling to fit in with other bland boring people who like carling with some bland boring lad-rock by hard-fi. eurgh.
what i love about this advert is how the birds get into the movement as if they're one big group (which they are) heading into town for a few beers before the football
as it means we don't have to see him singing
there's something wrong with his face
purely because it sampled Red Dwarf. Oh, and my dad used to sing me that "there's a whole in my bucket" song when I was younger, so it held some sentimental value. Then I actually listened to the lyrics, realised they were condoning promiscuity, unsafe sex and abandoning your pregnant girlfriend, and I could never listen again. Seriously, people moan about hip-hop artists promoting violence, etc - to my mind, this is just as bad.
because the lyrics pretty much identify the way we met and everything that happened after that.
I can't listen to Hard Fi very much anymore tho, but might give it a listen.
and am putting it onto my pod. I give in. It's got a couple of great tracks on it.
here's a band you should be getting worked up about. I think you need to sit down and re-evaluate your priorities.
And that's the reason i will never be attending again.
...Rage play this year.
...Or Metallica play. Ever again.
reasonably catchy at times even, in the bad way, but the lyrics, my god, some of the most cack-hand and borderline offensively shite attempts at "social commentary" since the Ordinary Boys.
Shite then, shite now.
characterless, imagination free, lowest common denominator gobshite.
Hard To Beat is also ace.
Am I becoming a Hard-Fi fan?
