Why are these crap songs so addicting...

Umbrella - Rihanna ft Jay-Z (JYFA) [Official]

Actually, the lyrics really aren't that half-bad... I almost like them ;-)

And I like her voice... this is way more pop than rap. It's more mainstream pop than hip-hop. The "umbrella" thing is a little cheesy, but whatever.

What really pisses me off those is the millions of fans who are under the impression that the singers of the songs wrote them. Nope.

Take 'Hero' by Mariah Carey. It was written by Walter Afanasieff.

Another guy who does a lot of writing for popular songs is this guy:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lukasz_...ke%22_Gottwald

All those pop songs that people swoon over... yeah, some 45 year old guy wrote it. Whose the REAL hero, eh? ;-P

I'm always curious how the actual song writers would sound performing their creations. Whether they have a commercially appealing voice or not, I find it so much easier to get attached to songs that the singers have some connection to as well. Granted, it's probably still just a paycheck for a lot of the writers too, but some of them must have a deeper interest in their lyrics/music.

You love it though. DAMMIT YOU LOVE IT

Man this girl is SMOKING HOT

Rihanna -- pretty damn good voice too... and cool beat

[VERSE 1]
You had my heart
and we'll never be world apart
Maybe in magazines
but you'll still be my star
Baby cause in the Dark
You can see shiny Cars
And that's when you need me there
With you I'll always share
Because

[CHORUS]
When the sun shines
We’ll shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be your friend
Took an oath
I'mma stick it out 'till the end
Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we still have each other
You can stand under my Umbrella
You can stand under my Umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(ella ella eh eh eh eh eh eh)

[VERSE 2]
These fancy things,
will never come in between
You're part of my entity
Here for Infinity
When the war has took it's part
When the world has dealt it's cards
If the hand is hard

Together we'll mend your heart
Because ...

[CHORUS]
When the sun shines
We'll shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be your friend
Took an oath
I'mma stick it out 'till the end
Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we still have each other
You can stand under my Umbrella
You can stand under my Umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(ella ella eh eh eh eh eh eh)

[BRIDGE]
You can run into my Arms
It's okay don't be alarmed
(Come into Me)
(There's no distance in between our love)
So Gonna let the rain pour
I'll be all you need and more
Because ...

[CHORUS]
When the sun shines
We'll shine Together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be your friend
Took an oath
I'mma stick it out 'till the end
Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we still have each other
You can stand under my Umbrella
You can stand under my Umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(ella ella eh eh eh eh eh eh)

It's raining (raining)
Ooo baby it's raining
baby come into me
Come into me
It's raining (raining)
Ooo baby it's raining
You can always come into me
Come into me......

Didnt she steal parts of that from that american idol chic...ummm season one winner whatever her name is. Mainly referencing parts of the umbrella eh eh eh whatever the crap. Its definetly exactly mirroring someone else.

Overall it didnt do a lot for me. I got just a little bit more excited picking my nose.

i dont consider it music unless there is a band actually perfoming music with instraments. you know, drums, a few guitars.....and a lead singer. i would actually like it if they wrote their own shite. but i will settle for them ACTUALLY playing. not dancing around stage dressed like whores from the wrong side of town. or doing the "bye bye bye" with their hands....maybe its just me. eh.
