Most Annoying Songs Ever

FYI this list will not include anyone who goes by the name of Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, or K$SHA for every single one of those people make me want to rip my eardrums out.

1. Best I Ever Had by Drake

"Sweatpants, hair-tied, chillin’ with no makeup on"- I swear if one more person puts this as their facebook status or quotes it I am shooting them. No, you do not look your best like this, atleast try to have some decency people!

2. My Humps by Black Eyes Peas
I don't even think I need to post the lyrics to this for every has probably heard it atleast once in their entire life. The lyrics are horrible and if you made it through the entire music video I salute you. I find it sad that everyone knows all of the dirty lyrics to this... including me. And it stays in your head against your will!

3. Wilfire by Michael Martin Murphey

 It seems to be telling us a story about a girl named she and she dies in the first few seconds of the horrid song which I believe is supposed to make everyone cry if they are not already so bloody confused!
"They say she died one winter when there came a killing frost"

Then the song get's even more trippy and tells us that the she beforehand is now miraculously a ghost and is going to KILL HIM.
" There's been a hoot owl howlin' by my window now for six nights in a row. She's coming for me I know."
Or maybe "she" is supposed to be a metaphor for death which still makes no sense when it is applied to the beginning of the song!

4. Good Riddance by Green Day

I just really REALLY cannot stand this song. *avoids flying sharp objects.*  I didn't like it when it came out and it still tends to get overplayed. Everyone says "OMG this song is so meaningful and deep and makes me sooo sad when I hear it." No. I can literally write a poem just like this which depicts looking back at life. To me, the song really isn't that great.

5. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun - Cyndi Lauper

If you don't picture a bunch of fake-blonde haired shallow drunken girls dancing around in a nightclubI congratulate you. It also gives such a bad image of what girls are expected to be like half the time. I'm a girl, and I find this offensive!

6. You're Beautiful by James Blunt

This song makes the list because it's truly so horrible that it's hard to listen to. And has anyone noticed that this guy has never had another hit single after this one? Well there's a reason for that, he was more than likely stoned while writing THIS song and probably his entire album and it was just a one time thing for him.
So the song starts off by telling us about a druggy who lays his little eyes on a person of the female persuassion on a subway and basically begins stalking her afterwards although he knows there is no way in hell he shall ever have her.
Here's a stalkery line;
"She was with another man. But I won't lose no sleep on that, 'cause I got a plan." WHAT IS THIS PLAN? Does it involve something Criminal Mindish, like running the un-high man over with a car then selling his body parts for profit?
Then we get these lyrics which only further indicate that this guy is a bit off his rocker!
" Yeah, she caught my eye. As we walked on by. She could see from my face that I was f***ing high."  LOL! In the video you can figure this out in the first 8 seconds when he starts stripping off his clothes for no apparent reason and looking at the camera to relay his message to his lady love who got wise and more than likely filed a restraining order on him! "Cause I'll never be with you" fully confirms my suspision!

7. This Is Why I'm Hot by MIMS
Someone thinks a bit too highly of themselves. So much that they must repeat how hot they are every 10 seconds to get the point across!

More will be added at a later date! But I have to ask, what song do you think is the most cringe worthy ever? Comments are love! <3

"At his head a grass-green turf, At his heels a stone."

Music: Passage by Vienna Teng

Today in literature class our teacher told us that we were going to be acting out/ doing a read through of Hamlet and then went on about the story and how everyone pretty much dies at the end. Before she could even ask what character everyone wanted to be I raised my hand in the air and say "Ophelia!"
Seriously, that is exactly what happened.
Teacher: Ok so we will be acting out this classic piece and I have to ask you guys what character you want to- *sees my hand in the air* >name<"
Me: Ophelia!
Then this girl in my class who sits two chairs diagonally infront of  me turns around and goes "NO! I wanted Ophelia!"
Too bad. You have to be a little quicker next time! I have wanted this role since I read the play back in 09. Trust me, you will not get this part from me unless I am dead.

Then everyone else starts saying what character they want to be and one girl who is really nice actually turned and asked what role she should go for and I told her that the ghost of Hamlet's father was pretty badass considering everyone else was going for Polonius and Fortinbras and basically the main characters. Ghost of Hamlet's Father basically makes the play in my opinion. So the nice girl took that part based on my suggestion and I'm just REALLY hoping she likes it.

Well obviously not everyone liked their part, mostly the girls, because some of them had to play *gasp* Horatio or *gasp* Guildenstern! One girl even thought Gertrude was a man. Well these girls for the first time ever are speaking to me and trying to be my best friend because they want to read the part of Ophelia. I was even BRIBED.

NO FOOLS! I am Ophelia, back off! I'm sorry you are not, be happy with the characters you got, none of them are that bad!

What/Who Is This?

Music: Rewind by The Paper Raincoat

Lately I've been noticing some people in my college asking a lot about who/what is this/that? So in order to clear everyones sad little heads I shall explain below a few people and things I think need recognition. I like a lot of things people have never heard of but I'm not afraid to say that I'm biased and feel that yes, people SHOULD know who and what these things are. 

1. Jane Eyre- A book written by a fabulous author who goes by the name of Charlotte Bronte. This book is practically made into a movie every year and was just released to theatres in 2011 starring Mia Wasikowska as Jane.

Why is this on the list? The first day of my literature class a kid asked "What's a Jane Eyre?" Oui.

2. Tom Sawyer- The Adventure's of Tom Sawyer is a novel by Mark Twain. If you have a vague idea of what it's about or who wrote it then you're good.
Why is this on the list? Again, idiots in my literature class asked who Tom Sawyer was and one girl thought he sounded like a state attorney.

3. Rowan Atkinson- Aka Mr. Bean/Johnny English/ Voice of Zazu/Comedian

Why he's on the list: HOW DO PEOPLE NOT KNOW WHO HE IS?!?! He's hilarious! My theatre class today; "Is Rowan Atkinson a dancer?" NO FOOLS! HE'S AN AWESOME PERSON WHO YOU DON'T DESERVE TO SEE!

4. Dark Lord/Dark Lord of the Sith- Different people. One is from Harry Potter aka Lord Voldemort and the other is from Star Wars named Darth Vader who is Luke's father! (never seen Star Wars but even I know the difference)


Why this is on the list: A person on facebook wanted to inform me that they were the Dark Lord and Dark Lord of the Sith. You cannot be both! In fact nobody is either one of these antagonists, they are both too awesome to be portrayed by anyone other than themselves (and the actor portraying the character.)

5. Tara Gilesbie- If you don't know who she is you need to google her name RIGHT NOW and read her wonderful story!
Why she is on the list: One of my acquantances didn't know who she was. Haha sucker!

6. Pacman- Only the best and most classically awesome arcade game of all time! It became so cool that it went into video game form! I first played it on my super nintendo (well, Ms.Pacman, same difference) and absolutely loved it even though I always lost at level 17. Me and my step brother beat it once, and me and my friend, twice.

Why this is on the list: At Target the other day I heard some 15 year old kid ask his mom "Why is the yellow head eating polka dots in this game?" PARENTS QUIT DEPRIVING YOUR CHILDREN! TEACH THEM WHAT PACMAN IS!

7. The Monkees- Were a band consisting of Micky Dolenz, Davy Jones, Peter Tork, and Michael Nesmith. Best known for their song "I'm A Believer."

Why they are on the list: As you may have heard, Davy Jones (the guy who sang most of the lead vocals) just passed on which means he's been in the news a lot recently. One girl in my art class thought it would be wise to inform us that "Davy Jones is the devil looking guy who lives at the bottom of the sea, so there's no way he could die!" FOOL! If I hear how Davy Jones is the guy who rules "Davy Jones Locker" one more time I'm tying said person up and we shall go on a little road trip to the sea where I will throw the person off a cliff so they can see what "Davy Jones Locker" truly looks like!

 8. Paul Mcartney- He was a former Beatle known for playing the bass and singing the songs such as Yesterday, I'll Follow the Sun,Maxwell's Silver Hammer,Eleanor Rigby, Fixing A Hole, and a few others. He is now one of the U.K.'s wealthiest people.

Why he is on the list: I kid you not, a lot of people didn't know who 'the guy playing the bass at the 54th Grammy Awards was. Not to mention "Who's Paul Mccartney" was a leading twitter trend for two hours after he performed. Sometimes I wonder how the present young generation can function on a daily basis.

9. Industrial Revolution- Please just google this one if you have absolutely no idea what it is. I am not going take time out of my day to explain it to you.

10. Meryl Streep

Why she is on the list- If you have no idea who Meryl Streep is then you have issues and need to go to, search her name, then watch one of her movies immediately.
