    What would you have Rebecca Black do? Some math homework? Ride a bike? Plant some trees for 4H club?

    If the choice is between entertaining millions, raising huge amounts of money to assist with humanitarian relief efforts, seizing the initiative to make a true talent burst through into the public eye, or living the expected life we impress upon 13-year-olds, the decision becomes all too obvious. It isn't idealism, it is simply what it is. Haters will inevitably hate, but a wise one would absolve himself or herself of any contempt for this music or the person making the music. But moving beyond this pettiness is really hard. Why feel good about what she has accomplished when we can instead tear her down in the age of vulnerability, in the hour of spring. Why wish her a bright future when we can instead ridicule her to hide our own insecurities?

    Humph!

    I don't give a dam if she is Mother Theresa's love child. Crap is crap. Two things of greater value in this world is truth and beauty and nevertheless the media is peddling out en mass lies and kitsch

    electronic voice synthesizers are creating host of "singers" in the media who don't know how to sing. Irony much? 2010s look to be putting out music that under does most of crap peddled out by the mass media in the 2000s. As we evolve the arts devolve. These types of thoughts can remind one this line by Orson Wales in the movie The Third Man.

    Harry Lime: Don't be so gloomy. After all it's not that awful. Like the fella says, in Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.

    Cultural/Personal Analysis of this Musical Gem

    Oo-ooh-ooh, hoo yeah, yeah
    Yeah, yeah
    Yeah-ah-ah
    Yeah-ah-ah
    Yeah-ah-ah
    Yeah-ah-ah
    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    My favorite part of the song (except when it ends).

    The philosophical implications of this statement, especially if you perceive the algebraic substitionary variables that can be filled with whatever you like in order to emulate the correct bio-Fourier-series are absolutely mind-blowing.


    Seven a.m., waking up in the morning
    I get up at 4:30am. She is living the dream.


    Gotta be fresh, gotta go downstairs
    Gotta have my bowl, gotta have cereal
    Tears in my eyes now. I still remember eating Cookie Crisp in sixth grade for breakfast, along with Crazy ("It turns your milk chocolate!") Cow cereal. Oh, to relive those lost days. Alas.


    Seein’ everything, the time is goin’
    Tickin’ on and on, everybody’s rushin’
    Gotta get down to the bus stop
    Gotta catch my bus, I see my friends (My friends)
    It must be nice to have friends. *cries*


    Kickin’ in the front seat
    Sittin’ in the back seat
    Gotta make my mind up
    Which seat can I take?
    So much easier than figuring out which portfolio plan to dump my IRA money into so as not to be wiped out completely when the stock market inevitably tanks overnight.


    It’s Friday, Friday
    Gotta get down on Friday
    Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend, weekend
    Friday, Friday
    Gettin’ down on Friday
    Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend
    Ah, an allusion to those modern dreamy allusionists known as Loverboy!


    Partyin’, partyin’ (Yeah)
    Partyin’, partyin’ (Yeah)
    Fun, fun, fun, fun
    Lookin’ forward to the weekend
    And now a blend of warrior-poet Eddie Murphy + the Beach Boys.


    7:45, we’re drivin’ on the highway
    Cruisin’ so fast, I want time to fly
    Fun, fun, think about fun
    You know what it is
    I got this, you got this
    My friend is by my right, ay...
    I hope she doesn't live in England.


    We-we-we so excited
    We so excited
    And now a homage to the Pointer Sisters.


    (C’mon) Passin’ by is a school bus in front of me
    Makes tick tock, tick tock, wanna scream
    And to Harlan "TickTockMan, I have no Mouth..." Ellison.

    Amazing, considering it took Mozart until age 5 to really begin to start to put his body of musical work. And he died young. We might easily have 70 more years of Rebecca Black.

    Ah. And now we see the inlaid pattern of Judeo "Work hard now, play later [if there is actually a playtime]" Christianity at the fore.

    But why do they have to bring us back again for Monday? Can't we just stay dead?

    Somewhere, whomever wrote this song is laughing, though whether due to humourous parady, sadism or merely pleasure at the unexpected popularity of a badly written set of lyrics, I'm not sure.


    i dunno, she's cute, the song is cute, but god the lyrics are inane as hell, and whoever let her go without additional vocal training is an idiot. the way she says "friday" is painful. i have way more of a problem with her producers than her. unless they all know it's a parody, in which case it's brilliant but extremely annoying.

    I listened to it last Friday, and my thoughts were - you don't have to get out there and do something GREAT, you just have to get out there and do SOMETHING, with your heart in it.

    I agree the song's weak, but it's got an addicting little hook, relevance to about 99% of the scholastic / working world (who doesn't feel happy when it's Friday) and obviously she's thrilled to do the video, and somehow, it gets noticed.

    You just need to get out there and do something, sometimes.

    I sure hope she's getting some financial return for this, and not that "label" she's done the video through. Money for a great college education or something.

    They had an interview with her on Good Morning America, and she asked Justin Bieber if he would do a duet with her. For 13, she did really well in the interview and I had to admire her composure in the face of this sudden "fame".

    She's 13 years old and is singing about hanging out with and going to parties with 16+ year-old's? Is she going to do a cover for 'I want candy' next?

    Her parents suck.

    After watching that Leno clip, she's really together for her age, as well as being adorable in mannerisms and looks.

    For all I'm teasing her over her song, and despite how bad it is, I think it's remarkable to see someone at that age go through the trouble of promoting themselves to such a degree as to get that amount of exposure + to handle herself decently in the public eye, as well as take a LOT of criticism. Many adults can't even deal with that.

    I actually think that sort of thing is more indicative of potential success than actually having all the kinks worked out; there's a lot of talented people who never get anywhere due to a lack of vision and ability to self-promote. My life might have been very different now if I had had that degree of moxie at that age.

    So... you go, girl!
    (And I'll just stop listening to the radio, in the meanwhile.)

    On the contrary: They might have enabled her to pay off her college education before she is even in high school.
