Short Answer:

I want to write a special note here. I don't hate modern music. I can enjoy a well-crafted pop song as much as the next tween, but boy did things get shitty fast when I hit the 90's. From there, it was just a series of terrible club songs and empty shite, and even some things that made me toss my head like a disgusted horse. (Looking at you Right Round by Flo Rida.) This whole sense of feeling like everything sucks ass was exclamation-pointed by the current Number One - Work by Rihanna, which I'm almost positive is a joke she's playing on everyone. It's like she's drunk and slurring into the mike, making up whacky noises and nonsensical crap, just to see if people will buy it. Plus, wasn't there like four other songs called Work in the last few years? Anyway, I guess we can blame the date. It's somewhat unlucky that I ate a barrage of 50 Cent, Black Eyed Peas and Mase, and lets not forget one hit wonders like Had a Bad Day and We Are Young, and that fucking Usher song where they say Yeah five thousand fucking times. I assume other dates would've been better for 1991 through 2016. Thank god for Uptown Funk, or I would've had nothing from that period.
