    I don't think this song is great, but songs aren't all about lyrics these days. Especially with stuff like techno around. Many people like BEPs and soulja boy because of the beat, or how easy it is to dance to.

    But if you were to base songs on lyrics then by far the worst song EVER should be this annoying little frog, from all those years ago...

    I must admit, the creator of Crazy Frog must be some kind of creative genius, or he was simply off his head.

    I agree I don't like this song. But I think other songs they have done are pretty good.

    People are saying the fact the lyrics are bad doesn't make the song bad. But that's ********. Aside from the fact that 1) they make the song REALLY ANNOYING and 2) they are a massive clue that you are, in terms of using the English language in a novel and thoughtful way, completely ******* useless, the rest of the music in I Gotta Feeling doesn't even make up for it. Some tracks repeat snatches of lyrics because lyrics are not what the track, the genre, the music is about. They are essentially just another riff (and yes, a song which consisted entirely of some poorly-thought-out variations of a **** riff would be **** even if there were decent songs around whose main gist and nub was riffing). When Daft Punk repeat the same lyrical line throughout the entire song that's because they're concentrating on the rest of the sounds and using the lyrical line as part of the whole. But with the Black Eyed Peas song it's fairly obvious that 1) the rest of the music is completely and utterly devoid of anything novel or interesting and 2) the lyrics are intended to be quite a big focal point in the song.

    No, amazing lyrics are not absolutely essential to a good song, but they definitely help, and poor lyrics can definitely ruin a song as well. A song consists of more than just music and it should be judged as a whole, not by simply ignoring half its content. If you're going to bother actually writing lyrics for more than basically sampling purposes, which in the song in question they plainly have, then that pretty much gives everyone else the right to judge the song in those terms as well.

    Besides, I ******* hated Around The World.

    Lol, funny video. BEP are one of my fave bands though, and to be fair, they have gone downhill and sold out over the years. Anyone remember this song from the 90s?



    Or even this?



    I'm just saying, they're not all that bad, so just think before you judge them on a few bad songs they've released in the last couple of years, because they do have some really good stuff from the past I guess they've just taken a new musical direction for a change, but I'm not too much of a fan with that. :no:

    He didnt even mention the worst thing which is that the title doesnt even make sense. "I gotta feeling". "I got to feeling".
    "I've got a feeling"

    I think it's an American thing.

    That guy on the video is just jealous that instead of making money from these songs he's just sitting there trying to criticize them in a humorous way. Get a life.

    lol I didn't know it was possible to be simpler than the lyrics to this obnoxious song but jesus christ

    Anyway nothing is as bad as anything by Fieldy's Dreams:



    Top four reasons why this song is awful:

    1) It's the bassist from Korn rapping.

    2) "**** in a bag, light it on fire
    You open the door, there's a bag on fire"

    3) "Trash can full of piss, leaned against your door,
    ding dong *****, ain't that a *****,
    you got piss on your floor, haha"

    4) It's the bassist from Korn rapping.

    Clearly whoever made that video has the attention span of a gnat and has never heard any prog rock in his life.
    Not that I'm comparing prog rock to the bep, prog is by far superior in any way, what I mean is that if you can't take 1:30 of listening to the same thing over and over then you probably shouldn't be a music critic - most songs I've come across outside of my usual music tastes are more or less the same chords over and over.
