Love, Like, Dislike, Loathe: Music Edition

Love - That we're in a new era of movie musicals - Moulin Rouge, Dreamgirls, Hairspray (Go see it. Bring comfy shoes because you will be tapping your feet.) I love musicals but used to think I was born in the wrong era since all I could watch were old ones on video. Now I can see them first run in theaters. Yeah!

Like - Avril Lavigne's new songs. I can't help rocking out to Girlfriend and singing along to When You're Gone. I just checked out the video and it's a weepfest. Lonely old men looking at pictures of their deceased wives get me everytime. *Sniffle* And speaking of crying...

Dislike - Fergie's song Big Girls Don't Cry. The song's ok, the sentiment (I gotta get my shit together without you) is fine. But if she was actually a "big girl", she'd know we cry a lot. If we didn't, we'd explode and take out anyone within a 10 foot radius. I also dislike the lyric, "I'm gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket." Something about it makes me cringe. "Blanket" just isn't very lyrical. Blanket. Blanket. Blanket. Ick.

Loathe - When singers talk during songs instead of singing. You know the songs, where the guy is all of a sudden, "Baby. You know I love you. I never meant to hurt you. I'm sorry you caught me cheating on you. I'm not sorry I cheated, I'm just sorry you caught me." Unless it's Barry White. He gets a pass.
