I'm supposed to hate this compared to what...Katy Perry?
I'm confused. Why am I supposed to hate this, compared to Katy Perry or Lady Gaga?
It sure has inspired copycats, though.
Here is a Christian parody called "Sunday," courtesy of P.Z. Myers at Pharyngula.
And here is Stephen Colbert doing "Friday" with a band, forgotten "Idol" Taylor Hicks, and some snark about March Madness Basketball...and cheerleaders.
People are making fun of the "Friday" song as too shallow, as if the dreck I hear when my daughter gets in our car is not shallow. The Katy Perry and Lady Gaga sort of stuff is sexually suggestive more often than not, but simple it is.
As I said about the attacks against Justin Beiber, this attack on things considered "cute" in our culture is simply wrong, and we ought to stand up for people who are nice more often than we do. My Rebecca Black, laugh at these mean people all the way to the bank.
And one more thing for Ms. Black, there is precedent for a song about days of the week: The song was called "Nothing" by the Fugs. The nihilism is of course welcomed in our culture today, but the references as the song gets beyond the English, Yiddish and Spanish lines stating the days of the week and months, will be lost on anyone under 60 who is not schooled in American leftist history...
