#2: Call Me Maybe Has Got To DIE!!!

My god I have no idea where to start with why I hate this song. I really cannot take any more of this song on the radio. How is something like this able to get on the air??? I have heard a lot of crap within the last 12 years on the radio… but I really think that this song has got to die. I will hope that by the end of this blog post you will too… IF you have not done so already. But this is from MY PERSPECTIVE AS TO WHY I HATE THIS SONG! If you like this song then you are welcome to your own opinion. I won’t stop you from liking it. Ok?

*Again this is from my perspective. You are welcome to disagree with me and I mean no offense*

You really want to know why I hate this song? Probably the biggest reason why I hate this song is because I really do not understand how EASY LYRICAL SONGS ARE POPULAR! I really do not get it. If you notice in the lyrics it’s a ton of the same crap repeated over and over and over AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN!!

I will post the lyrics here just to show you:

I threw a wish in the well, Don’t ask me, I’ll never tell I looked to you as it fell, And now you’re in my way
I’d trade my soul for a wish, Pennies and dimes for a kiss I wasn’t looking for this, But now you’re in my way
Your stare was holdin’, Ripped jeans, skin was showin’ Hot night, wind was blowin’ Where you think you’re going, baby?
Hey, I just met you, And this is crazy, But here’s my number, So call me, maybe?
It’s hard to look right, At you baby, But here’s my number, So call me, maybe?
Hey, I just met you, And this is crazy, But here’s my number, So call me, maybe?
And all the other boys, Try to chase me, But here’s my number, So call me, maybe?
You took your time with the call, I took no time with the fall You gave me nothing at all, But still, you’re in my way
I beg, and borrow and steal Have foresight and it’s real I didn’t know I would feel it, But it’s in my way
Your stare was holdin’, Ripped jeans, skin was showin’ Hot night, wind was blowin’ Where you think you’re going, baby?
Hey, I just met you, And this is crazy, But here’s my number, So call me, maybe?
It’s hard to look right, At you baby, But here’s my number, So call me, maybe?
Hey, I just met you, And this is crazy, But here’s my number, So call me, maybe?
And all the other boys, Try to chase me, But here’s my number, So call me, maybe?
Before you came into my life I missed you so bad I missed you so bad I missed you so, so bad
Before you came into my life I missed you so bad And you should know that I missed you so, so bad
It’s hard to look right, At you baby, But here’s my number, So call me, maybe?
Hey, I just met you, And this is crazy, But here’s my number, So call me, maybe?
And all the other boys, Try to chase me, But here’s my number, So call me, maybe?
Before you came into my life I missed you so bad I missed you so bad I missed you so, so bad
Before you came into my life I missed you so bad And you should know that
So call me, maybe?

If you noticed only a few lines of this song is not in bold. That’s because there are literally only a few lines within the song that DON’T REPEAT. Hmmm… That would mean that about OVER 90% of the song is at one point repeated more than once. Now I am all fine for some repeated lines in a song. That’s why there is a chorus section for a good majority of songs! But having the same shtick of crap repeated for over 3 minutes just drains the brain cells out of my brain. And if that weren’t enough, the GIANT grammatical error in the song sticks out like a sore thumb.

What’s that? You don’t know what I am talking about? Let me clear this up for you. There is a line in the song that shows up more than once (obviously) that literally says “Before you came into my life, I missed you so bad”. WAIT WAIT WAIT!! Let’s say that again: “Before you came into my life, I missed you so bad”. So you’re saying that you already knew about this guy from the past even though you just met and now you missed him… in the present? WHAT??? ARE YOU SOME SORT OF TIME TRAVELING BOY STALKER??? When I heard this song for the first time I have to admit that I was in shock of how annoyingly bad it is. THEN when I hear this line… I literally stopped the car. I was in the middle of the road at night and I stopped my car. Once I realized that I was not going crazy, I changed the song so that my ears would not blow off from anger. I am NOT JOKING. How in the hell was this allowed to go on the air? Don’t the people who are in charge of music proof read the lyrics? Well obviously not considering that this song was able to squeek on by! You know what this song is really saying? “Hi I think you’re really hot. Just give me your number cause I’ve been watching you from my house. Also I missed you from the past!” Uggghh… This concept of just being retarded with grammar is a pet peeve of mine. I mean I am no stranger to thinks like “IDK“, “OMG“, and “LOL“. Also using the number 4 instead of the word “for” is another example. But really? You missed him BEFORE he came into your life?? WHAT??

I do realize that a ton of songs right now follow the formula of repeating and repeating. Honestly I am pissed off at them as well. This just shows that any freaking retard can make a song. The classics from the 60’s through the 90’s didn’t do this! Why is this happenning now? I do agree that there should be some songs out there that are more generated for a specific kind of audience. For example: I believe that this song is generated towards the audience of a younger generation. But that’s really it! I do not imagine a 80 year old grandpa dancing his ass off when I hear this song! Why do songs in this day and age just get lazier and lazier with lyrics? The lyrics are very important to the song and can change the entire meaning of what the song is about! Another example I can mention off of the top of my head is that god-awful “Like a G-6” song. You know how that goes right? “Like a G-6. Like a G-6! Now I’m feeling so fly like a G-6!” What is a G-6 anyways??? I don’t know and damned if I do know.

Next let’s just start with the visual media: The music video. I WANT YOU TO WATCH IT ONLY SO YOU CAN SEE HOW BAD IT IS. Here it is:

Your eyes bleeding? No? Ok. Lets pick apart this video.

First off she stalks the boy pretty much the entire time in the video! WTF? IS THAT REALLY THE MESSAGE YOU ARE TRYING TO SEND TO PEOPLE?? No I am not dumb. I do realize that the song is performed for the boy at the end so that she can inadvertently tell him that she likes him and give him her own phone number without really saying it. WAIT WAIT WAIT!! Let’s clear this up again!

I am a guy so I will say this from my perspective. GIRLS DON’T JUST FLAT OUT GIVE THEIR NUMBERS AWAY SO EASILY!!!! This is based off of the fact that in high school and the days of yore, I remember when you had to have enough courage to go up to the girl, try to be yourself (whatever that was), and then get her number that way. Do you know how often girls just give out their number without you having to do anything???? NOT MANY IF NOT NONE!! Sorry. I do realize that sounds kind of sexist. But again, I want to stress that this is from my perspective and I hope you all do not take offense to this.

If I do I appoligize immensely. I do realize that in this area I could get in trouble easily. Anyways…

God this just makes me angry. What did the guy in the video do? Take his shirt off? That wasn’t him trying to get her number! That was just him taking it off! And also, if you recal, he’s gay! So there! Take that singer stalker girl! Also when she falls off of her car and he’s just staring at her, he doesn’t do anything there either! Then she just flat out tries to give it to him! All it is, is this: “Thanks for taking your shirt off and not helping me up! Here’s my number cause I think you’re hot”. And then he rejects her in the end! YEAH! That was the best part of the video to be honest! It’s just a big F-U to the girl after all that hard work to get him to notice her. HA HA HAAA!!

Ok that’s really all of my complaints right now with this song. I hope that it dies within the next few seconds but that won’t happen. That wish won’t come true.

Please rise up with me and dislike this freaking song. It’s an abomination and future songs need to realize that there is just too much crap out there on the radio today. The music industry must have gotten really lazy to have let this song get approved for the air. It’s really the only thing that makes sense.

*Also this music video has over 150 MILLION VIEWS!!! WHY PEOPLE WHY????? STOP WATCHING IT!!!
