my exact reply on someone's fb status.
you won't thank me...
as if they've tried to cover every possible base. There's a Pon de Floor bit in there as well OBVIOUSLY.
Abysmal - not that I was expecting any more. Sounds exactly like I thought it would and the chorus (if you can call it that) is just Oh My Darling Clementine. My ears won't forgive me for that
Otherwise: poor, poor girl. Dreams dashed at the first time of asking.
ie someone who rips of other people's raps, lyrics, style, etc
is surely somebody who shamelessly promotes their own swagger.
..it's the Black Eyed peas My Humps over the top of Oh My Darling Clementine!
I wonder who owns the copyright to my darling clementine
I think the term she was looking for was 'swagger jacker' though.
but if this is the kinda shit that gets leaked, then please god, someone stop these vile, vile terrorists.
it just sounds exactly like you would expect?!
They can now claim it's a demo and remix the fuck out of it, perhaps chuck some Humpty Dumpty in for good measure.
Maybe she's being "marketed" as the female Jedward?
Diplo produced this?
she was on the X-Factor in the UK in 2010. She came 3rd, or maybe 4th. Her unique selling point was interweaving a bit of rapping into her songs, to mixed effect. Cheryl Cole liked her a lot.
One Direction 3rd, Rebecca Ferguson 2nd. Can't remember who won. Think it was Jedward.
Absolutely, genuinely incredible stuff.
that song is going to be everywhere
I SLAP MY EL!
SLAP MY BOW!
SLAP MY EL!
SLAP MY BOW!
who is on the TV adverts for Iceland lately?
she sounds american.
still, it's better than Cher Lloyd
why is EVERY female act trying to sound like Katy Perry / Kei$sha.
I know why, but for fucks sake.
JUST LET IT GOEOEOEOEOOOOOOO
KISS KISS ILL SEE YOU LATERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
fuck_this_band linked a cached version further up with the whole song.
It sounds like a cross between the third single release off of a Fergie solo album, a bedroom producer's stab at making an M.I.A. track and 'Oh my darling Clementine':
Job done, really.
I think it also slots into "so bad it'll become an ironic winner" category.
I guess it's doing something right?
These cunts know what they're doing...
the kids are going to fucking love it!
GET ON THE FLOOR!
This is the music equivalent of vomit.
but it is supposed to right? Surely.
is the right term for it
chorus of Cotton Eyed Joe. Perhaps that will be covered in any future 12" version.
i feel like i have to hear this..
makes me proud to be human.
Why is everyone rhyming Swagger and Jagger all the time now? It's Ke$ha's fault, right?
Though the phrase 'jag my swag' is quite amusing.
Anyway, if Cher Llol-yd is reading, this link should set you straight:
I laughed hard @53s
reminded me of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2CLCUoUUBuk
heaven dj sammy slow mix
Any song with any reference to "get on the floor" or whatever is bound to get twats in shity clubs thinking it's brilliant.
Fuck. My. Life.
Except for the Oh My Darling bits, it's not actually that bad.
Pretty much exactly what you'd expect her music to sound like if you saw her on X Factor, no? Just a lot worse than it should have been.
Its quite sad in a way because she seemed pretty insecure on the show, and there is no way that this is going to be anything but totally panned by everyone everywhere.
But fair enough, it is utter cack. Sorry Cher.
But I thought she might actually come out with something good, even if it was tacky and over-produced. I liked her on the X Factor.
It is atrocious though :(
i was thinking it sounded like a christmas song
fire your producer mate
Had to turn it off after a minute. When I listen to stuff like this or Kesha I start to realise how my parents must've felt when I was listening to Adam & the Ants or Soft Cell.
Soft Cell > Adam and the Ants >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Kesha & Cher
this is the sound of modern pop.
i'd put my life on it doing well.
some middle-class wag with 800 words to burn will say SORT OF IRONICALLY BUT SORT OF NOT BUT SORT OF NOT ACTUALLY SURE WHAT THEY THINK ANYMORE how actually very good it is, a billion teenage girls will buy it, radio 1 will playlist it and a 'Now' cd will have it in the first three tracks on the first disc.
standard as fuck. stop acting like it is anything but.
i'm not saying that this is the line of events and loads of girls will buy it because someone in a broadsheet said it was really brilliant. these were just arbitrary events that will happen when this song is released.
I was just singing along is all.
On the one hand Katy B and on the other Ke$ha. Incidentally, i want to start a thread like this every time i hear a near Ke$ha number. I think she can't get any worse, and then ...
these are two of the biggest pop stars on the planet in a song that the world has apparently accepted with a straight face
we deserve every cher lloyd we get.
that that's the only song of hers i can even half stomach?
Your point still stands though
