Best Parody Target

Postby TMBJon » Thu Jul 03, 2014 6:23 am

Forgetting about the potential subject matter of Al's parodies, which of the five songs that Al is (likely) parodying on this album do you think is the best song on its own merit? This is NOT a question about which song is the most deserving to be parodied, or which parody you are most looking forward to hearing. Of these five songs, which do you actually like the most?

For me, Happy is probably one of the most pleasant songs of the five to listen to.

This was between Royals and Fancy for me. I haaaaaaaate Blurred Lines and Happy and have no real opinion on Radioactive I guess. I chose Royals because I know all the words. :up:

I don't much care for Fancy or Blurred Lines, I enjoyed Royals until the umpteenth time that I heard it, and while I agree that Happy is a catchy song, I've heard covers of it that I enjoy more (particularly the one from Walk Off The Earth). Radioactive, however, is a song that I genuinely like, and after an absence of decent contemporary rock targets for over a decade (you can argue that American Idiot is a decent song, but I remain unconvinced), I'm glad there's an actual, honest-to-Bob rock song on this album.

I went with "Radioactive," since I think it's a just plain awesome rock song. "Royals" would be in second place, for being so delightfully minimalistic. Third and fourth place might waver between "Happy" and "Fancy," depending on mood, and in last place, by a wide margin, is "Blurred Lines."

Tough choice between Royals and Radioactive, but I went with the latter.

"Radioactive" is the only one that was already in my playlist. I also kind of like "Royals" (it sounds nice, but lyrics are a bit pretentious, so I'm glad it will be fixed :D)

I'd say Radioactive is the best song on its own merits here.
