Guess what? Rebecca Black’s new song “Sing It” has at last been released! Yaay!

Ah, good old Rebecca Black. Truly inpirational she is in how she keeps going despite being such a popularly disliked musician. But hey, maybe she’s learned and is getting better? Maybe this is going to be her really genuinely good one? Maybe this one will, in fact, be a nicely written piece? Let’s take a look:

Sing It

“Woah-oh Woah-oh-oh-oh
Woah-oh Woah-oh-oh-oh
Woah-oh Woah-oh-oh-oh
Woah-oh Woah-oh”

… *sigh*

“That familiar voice
It speaks to me”

I see. Does it tell you to stop this singing business or somesuch?

“Tells me everything is gonna be ok
It’s meant to, meant to be
Sun is out and the darkness fades
Got my headphones on and I’m under
In a dream but I’m wide awake”

All right. This is harmlessly bland, I suppose. Just as long as she doesn’t do th…

“Woah-oh Woah-oh-oh-oh”

… sigh

“Turn it up, turn it up
Play it aloud”

Possibly best I don’t do that. I might disturb the neighbours… a lot!

“Sing it from my heart
Sing it from my heart, yeah, yeah,
yeah, yeah”

No.
“It’s alright, it’s alright
Alri-i-i-ight”

It is? Okay, great; then I’ll just keep mocking the song.

“Turn it up, turn it up
I feel ya now
Sing it from the heart
Sing it from the heart, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
It’s alright, it’s alright
Be alright”

Being alright and listening to this music are two completely different things.

“On brighter days
You make me smile
When I’ve got you here with me
I could walk a million, billion miles”

Why would you? Why not just have the person – whatever sad soul this song is even supposed to be dedicated to – over for a movie night or go to dinner with him? I know “I could walk 1 000 000 miles for you” is romantic and all but not when you shove it into the text at random.

“I’m dreaming again
So get outta my way
Life goes fast, so you gotta make it last
No matter what they say
Woah-oh Woah-oh-oh-oh”

Constantly going “woah-oh” is not. clever. bloody. writing!

“Turn it up, turn it up
Play it aloud
Sing it from my heart
Sing it from my heart, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
It’s alright, it’s alright
Alri-i-i-ight”

Alright, we get it!

“Turn it up, turn it up
I feel you now
Sing it from my heart
Sing it from my heart, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
It’s alright, it’s alright
Be alright”

I won’t. Trust me.
“Live it up, live it up, live it up, yeah!
Live it up, live it up, live it up, yeah!
Live it up, live it up, live it up, yeah!”

Yeah… and, well, yeah. That’s it. The song’s over.

This wasn’t as badly written as most of the stuff I keep hearing on the radio but if you were listening to the song itself whilst readng this or if you already know how it sounds, you can probably understand why it annoys me.
