Dead for Tax Reasons: What does mtv know about music anyway


Roughly as much as Pat Robertson does about morality

MTV in some other country, perhaps. Can't be this one.

Surprised it wasn't Gangnam Style. Should have been, IMO - it's gotten three times the traffic on Youtube and has been at #1 longer I think.

Plus, Hyuna > Carly Rae Jepsen

(though put them together and it makes for some nice imagery...)

Wow they totally got this wrong. The correct answer is Hot Problems .

maybe the best song that MTV has played this year, but not the best song made this year.

What did TLC nominate for best song? Or how about A&E?

I suppose they also voted McDonalds best hamburger of the year?

Because it's a selected pattern that is highly predictable, and so your brain correctly predicts parts of it and responds to correct predictions by endorphin release, stimulating the same centers as cocaine.

Yes this is how it works. Repetitive predictable garbage = chart topper.

Don't hate the song. Don't really like it, but that's probably because it is so damn overplayed. Maybe in a few years I'll hear it again and have some affection for it.

It's a great metric. 900 million people can't be wrong, right?

Does MTV mean "Catchiest song of the year that makes you want to stick an ice pick in your ear because the song has been stuck in your head for days"?

Pish posh! I just YouTubed that, and I think it sucks, big time. As far as I am concerned, any song sung by Messiah Marcolin when he was in Candlemass is song of the year, every year, forever.

Be thankful (this time) you don't live in Canada, where the government mandates this song be played every 38 minutes on terrestrial radio. And Drake songs every 43.

This is the song that forced me to stop watching Jimmy Fallon. After he adopted it for his theme the night after having that twat on his show, I just quit.

I tried to give him another chance a month or so later and he sung it during the monologue.

I cannot fathom how The Roots put up w/ this idiocy. I know it's a paycheck, but I've lost a ton of respect for them too.

Have you even heard the song, subby? It should be: "Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but I'm song of the year, says MTV, maybe"

I have no idea why that bothered me so much. Or why I like this song. But it did, and I do.

I didn't think I had heard it either, until I was told I was hearing it and I realized I had already heard this pap 100x in stores and whatnot.

A whole lot of that Youtube traffic has been people trying to learn the horsey dance that goes along with the song. At least 5,000 of those hits have come from my computers; every day for months when I came home from work there were teenagers in my basement practicing the damn thing.

That's why we chubby wenches totally RULE. You will never die of a femoral (sp?) artery incision if you're having "adult play time" with one of us. Our knees are definitely not sharp.

you know, a few years ago, I would have been unreasonably pissed about this...but as one gets older they realize that shiat like this really doesn't matter..it's a harmless little sugar pop song that makes people dance and be happy...so why be a dick about it? I'll never buy a Carly Rae Jepsen album, I'll never pay any money to see her perform, I won't seek her videos out on the internet (sex tapes not included)....in short, what farking difference does it make what mtv or anybody else chooses as their song of the day, week, month, year, decade, millenia....it's music, it's not life and death

Bravo.

Plus, I was shocked to hear she doesn't write her own songs. When did this trend start?!?
