    PS- Connemara, no offense dog, but you're running away with the "corniest list thus far" award. Although to your credit, you might be the most honest of the corny listers.

    Whenever I hear the start of Sir Duke, the hairs on my arms stand up (and I mean that in a good way).

    But, you really need to widen your music. That's the least random list we've had.

    I'm not trying to snatch the biscuit out of anyone's mouth or anything, but with lyrics like:

    I just can't honestly believe anyone takes him seriously as an MC.

    Give me a hug? If you are into getting rubbed??!?!?

    Jeez, fiddy. Read a book more complex than Goodnight Moon, dude. Even with Snoop turned into a living caricature of his own ignorant "good natured pothead" image, he could still flip 50 cent over his knee and paddle him with his vocabulary any day of the week.

    Props for letting that in - I don't know if I would have been brave enough to leave in some of the stuff on my player, especially some of my wife's older (IMHO cheese) metal and synthpop [​IMG]

    I guess, and you may have romantically passed Connemara for corniest list to date. No judgement, just realness.

    And I'm not a fan of 50 cent, but the hate that he gets is just unjustified. For the dude that criticized him for the lyrics to "In the Club" that's like criticizing a Formula 1 car for having a crappy interior... It's missing the point. That song was all about the beat, and while it sounds way dated to us now and has icky "Fitty" connotations, when it first came out (and music can be very different when it first comes out) that beat was undeniable. Paula Abdul could have freestyled over that beat and it would have been a "club banga." Real talk. If anything, you'd be better off critiquing 50's delivery & voice than his lyrics, as it wouldn't be hard to come up with examples of songs of his with "quality" lyrics-- but his voice consistently annoys the hell out of me.
