    Or the media, the way they describe someone like Lady Gaga as 'taking over the world'.

    You're only a singer for goodness sake!

    This.

    Only awful singers, and not artists, sing about taking over the world.
    The Smiths never included this stupid theme in their lyrics!

    I dunno, it doesn't necessarily have to be a bad thing.

    You may not have heard of it/like it but The Courteeners have a song called Take Over The World, and it's a purely beautiful song, in my opinion.

    It's neither a good thing nor a bad thing, it depends on what the context is, what the message is and what the music's like.
