YouSpeak: All Those Annoying Songs
Rebecca Black’s “Friday” worst song ever?
You hear them, you hate them, but you can’t stop singing them—songs like Chumbawamba’s “Tubthumping” and Outkast’s “Hey Ya!” have annoyed audiences for years. However, those could pale in comparison to new YouTube sensation Rebecca Black’s song “Friday.” Since being released on YouTube February 11, the song has gone super-viral, with more than 47 million views. Forbes magazine has estimated Black’s song could earn her $1 million from iTunes alone. Good news for Black, but bad news for those who get the song’s insipid lyrics (“It’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday”) trapped in their head. Its inanity has earned the song the dubious honor of being “the worst song ever.”
In light of the nationwide infatuation with YouTube starlet Black, this week’s “YouSpeak” asks: “What’s the most annoying song to have gotten stuck in your head?”
