Does Your Pop Music Suck?: Boom Boom Poop.

Check in every Friday for guest blogger DonBito’s thrashing of your favorite pop songs. And don’t forget to email your suggestions for next week’s blog to wegotthebits@gmail.com.

“Boom Boom Pow” by the Black Eyed Peas. (This link is to the full, uncensored version of the song – not the official video.)

I know what you’re thinking, readers: A song featuring the egregious use of onomatopoeia? How bad can it be?

Mistake #1: Giving Don Bito the Slightest Bit of Power

This post hijacked by guest blogger DonBito.

PhillyGrrl is on vacation for 48 hours and has committed the cardinal sin of giving me the power to publish my posts without editorial review.

AHAHAHAHAHA!  The power!  The PAHHHHHHH!!!!!

Power Trip

Had to do it. And now, to make this post marginally relevant, I invite you to check out the NYTimes’ “36 Hours in Philadelphia” feature.  The first paragraph alone miraculously manages to not trash Philly, and to glorify gentrification! It’s a roller coaster of emotion in here.

Don’t forget to tune in later today for my very first “Does Your Pop Music Suck?” feature!

I <3 bluegrass UPDATED

Ever since I saw “O Brother Where Art Thou?” I’ve loved bluegrass. Wait, was that bluegrass.  I thought it was. I’m not real music savvy when it comes to characterizing genres.

Anyways, if you want to listen to real bluegrass this weekend, check out The Dill Pickles, who will be playing the Spruce Hill May Fair this Saturday, May 9 at 2:00 PM.

Info here.

Listen to ’em here.

I’ve heard that “Nobody’s Business” song like 100 times this week.
