Wow I had almost forgotten that this song ever existed... until I realized that I'm actually not 100% sure it's what I thought it was. It has a familiar sound but after listening to the whole song I don't think it's one that I've ever heard all the way through. Maybe I heard it in the background at some point in my life on a radio that I walked past or something. Unfortunately it didn't stir my memory enough to claim solid familiarity. I read through the lyrics and it has a mediocre message but nothing of any significance to me personally. It did ok on the charts but didn't bust any list or anything like that. This drops you to 2 remaining nominations though Mycro.

Anyway, it's a bummer that so many points are lost for unfamiliarity and the fact that it has no lyrical substance.

So basically it would have gotten a 6.05 if you had just left the lyrical category out entirely and averaged the other 6 categories. How many songs would that put it ahead of, out of curiosity?

Let me check on that...

Edit: Hmm, it wouldn't be that much further up the list coming in at around 886th - 890th

"classical dubstep" lol


Am I supposed to understand why this is funny?

That is the best description of the genre that I found in the amount of time I spent looking it up.

Keep in mind that I don't list the genre of the Band/Artist. I tried to narrow down the genre for each song individually.

Oh ok lol. It does have a funny ring to it doesn't it?

I just wasn't sure if I was being mocked or something. Thanks for clearing that up.

So... I first started to realize that I might be aging when I really took an interest in a dude called Billy Joel and his music. Yeah. I kinda like most of his stuff believe it or not. There is a bunch that I wouldn't say is top tier but I always find it easy to listen to. The first of his tunes to actually make the list though is a mild one at best. I think the biggest sell for me is the Piano play that fills out the majority of his work. Ordinarily as well, the lyrics are well written and always tell a story of true life experience. I am excited that we'll see more of his work further up the list but I am cautious of looking foolish over bloating an uncommon interest and exposing an ever aging psyche.lol But who knows... maybe there are more fans here and my interest isn't so uncommon at all. We'll see. :P
