My wife has always loved this song, yet she understood why I hated it so much.
I decided to include this song mainly because of the very so call acclaim it achieved. How such a redundant song sung by such a nasal singer (whom I can only assume used the assistance of auto-tune) could gain such popularity demonstrates exactly why I put this website together.
Much like most songs by female performers for the past 10 years, it included a pecker-head rapper laying down a lyrical break to fill their own ego and to take up room from having to create a few seconds more of actual content. The lack of content would explain why the chorus includes the lyrics, "ella, ella, ella, a, a, a, a, a, a".
Back when this song came out it reached such a level of popularity "artists" who unbelievably had less talent and ability as Rihanna created remakes and covers. As horrible as the original was, I was amazed how much worse it could get.
I weeded out the bottom four.
My Chemical Romance
Given the nature of Emo bands, you can understand why I'm getting a headache right now.
Chris Brown Remix
Any time you hear "Remix" in the first 5 seconds of the song, you know you're about to listen to a real piece.
Lil' Mama Remix
There should be a law where one can't just put their own voice in between the original chorus.
Manic Street Preachers
This suppose to be punk? Oh, pop-punk. By the way, what the hell does that suppose to mean?
