Bad Guy? Not mine.

August 27, 2019

YouTube announced their song of the summer, and guess what it was?  Theeeeeee biggest piece of crap since last year's piece of crap (I don't remember what last year's was...I'm just assuming it was a piece of crap) "Old Town Road."  I guess when a song spends 19 weeks at number one, you've really got no choice.  Check their list:

1.  "Old Town Road", Lil Nas X

2.  "Sunflower", Post Malone and Swae Lee

3.  "No Guidance", Chris Brown, featuring Drake

4.  "Bad Guy", Billie Eilish

5.  "Señorita", Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello

6.  "Suge (Yea Yea)", DaBaby

7.  "Shotta Flow", NLE Choppa

8.  "Ransom", Lil Tecca

9.  "Pop Out", Polo G, featuring Lil Tjay

10.  "Truth Hurts", Lizzo

Gag.  And Chris Brown?  I thought we hated that woman-beater?  Whatever.  Takeaway here is, where's the ALTERNATIVE?  The only song that even comes close is "Bad Guy," and top-40 hijacked that one from us, soooo....

What's your number one?  

Me?  I think I'm going with "Alligator" from OMAM. 

WAIT.  No.  "Why Did You Run?" from Judah and the Lion. 

I think I like that one better.

Lotta possibilities, though.  Alt's current number one "Cringe," "3 Nights," "Trampoline," all good choices.  I just like mine to be uptempo.

Oh, and FYI, you've heard the last of Lil' Nas X.  

Book it.
