Day 02 - My Least Favorite Song

Day 2 of the 30 Day Song Challenge.

For my least favorite song, I started thinking about different songs I heard during my undergrad years at R.I.T. that would rub me the wrong way for whatever reason. In general it seems I just didin't like the lyrics that were depressive, singing about getting drunk, or just those "punk-rock" voices that all sounded the same to me--whiny.

Interestingly, even though I still dislike selections of the lyrics, it's actually kind of amusing and enjoyable to remember and hear some of those songs that I used to not like. So for my least favorite song today, I'll just choose a particular example I remember from then. "Down" by Something Corporate.

Again...I am actually really enjoying hearing this tune again, which is surprising to me. Somehow that first line saying "Let's get drunk" always put a bad taste in my mouth. I'm pretty sure it had to do with my frustation about my peers during that period of time considering "getting drunk" to be an EVENT in itself, as opposed to a consequence of something more meaningful, like spending time with people we care about.
