    Unpopular Opinions about Music

    The only song by R. Kelly that I really like is "Cookie". In fairness to me, I liked it before I realized it was R. Kelly. I think it was on one of the Magic Mike soundtracks and it got some airplay. It's a really freaky song that leaves, like, zero to the imagination, but it's well-produced. It sounds like an accomplished musician who is trying to do something for the kids, which it was. Plus, there are some pretty good YouTube videos of people dancing to it.

    Yeah I’ve never been crazy about R. Kelly, either. I think he’s one of those acts that was better than average in his prime and that’s all people remember.

    Country Music, Y'all!

    Yeah, it’s a great song. And it’s one of those early songs that used snaps without sounding like a douche-y crossover attempt. It just worked as a light percussion accent. I ask because the production of the song was soft rock (for those days...now it would be considered Country). Lyrically, it’s very Country. Kid Rock is a rapper who turned out to be a serviceable roots rock singer, Sheryl Crow is a pop singer, and even though Allison Moorer is mainly a Country singer, she’s pretty malleable. All that said, Kid Rick has mainly had Country girls sing that part with him (Jessie James Decker, Kellie Pickler, Gretchen Wilson, LeAnn Rimes, etc). And speaking to the radio format, when that song was out, they used to play it on Top 40 radio (where you’ll hear stuff like Chainsmokers, Halsey, Ariana Grande, etc). Its funny that it’s so hard to peg that song, but that’s a testament to how good it is. I almost feel like Country music is full of mid-tempo numbers trying to recreate the magic of that song.

    I’m curious: do you guys consider “Picture” by Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow (or Allison Moorer, depending on which version you’re familiar with) a pop song, a soft rock song, or a country-pop song?

    Wow, they must have had that in the tuck. They’re probably still on stage thanking people and the LA Times is already hating.

    I’m pretty sure I heard her say she puts the pretty in Pretty Woman and Pretty in Pink. Then she dabbed and called us hoes before dismissing us. It hurt my feelings.

    Right. I’m all for diversity but it seems the Oscars try too hard to impress who have, shall we say, unsophisticated filmic opinions. Like, just because the movie is about racism or prejudice in the South doesn’t make it “powerful” or “important”. Blatant pandering brings down the value of the awards just like not recognizing PoC and women altogether.

    Whew. I’m glad Julia has her makeup right. In the clips I’ve seen of her in that show, she looks...well, like Mariah in Precious. That uncooked butter look ain’t it.

    I think it’s, like, against the law to show people drinking in alcohol commercials.

    I don’t know who Olivia Coleman but she’s charming the pants off this show. That was one of the best acceptance speeches I’ve seen in awhile. I love that she called it hilarious.

    Trust me, you weren’t. I felt like Rami gave a career defining performance in a fair to middling film, kind of like Jamie Fox in Ray. I believe that. Rami’s been doing his best to not mention Singer this whole time. Can’t say I blame him.

    Congratulations Rami! You and those big ass prosthetic teeth were doing the most but you deserve it!
