I sometimes wonder how this happens:
Confessions on a Dance Floor by Madonna is a superb album, fantastic from start to finish, timeless, one of my favorite albums. It also has some real sick burns in a couple of the songs:
Don’t explain yourself 'cause talk is cheap
There’s more important things than hearing you speak
But then smack dab in the middle is the song I Love New York which sounds terrible and has the worst lyrics ever put in any song
I don’t like cities
But I like New York
Other places make me feel like a dork
Los Angeles is for people who sleep
Paris and London, baby you can keep
If you don’t like my attitude
Then you can F off
Just go to Texas
Isn’t that where they golf?
This is truly baffling to me, because it feels like a song from a different album written by a different person who has never tried to write anything poignant or rhyming.
i really just wanted to post about this but like
What are your nearly-album-ruining songs?
