This song is about a man in conflict. He loves a beautiful woman, but she is taken. “You’re Beautiful” ends on a dramatic note. He can’t be with her, so, in the music video, he resolves it by jumping into the ocean. This somewhat redeems the sappy 2005 love song.
Weirdly, in addition to it being annoying, the premise of the song is a little far-fetched. According to Blunt, it’s about a guy on a subway stalking someone else’s girlfriend. Not exactly the romance we thought.
There's a reason why Nickleback earned the title as our era's worst band in the world, and “Photograph” is probably what launched them into that status. As such, the gruff lyrics accompanying the requisite electric guitars and drums make it a common one.
A lot of people like the song, but it’s hard to listen past lead singer Chad Kroeger’s growling vocal style.
Rick Dees and His Cast of Idiots
Rick Dees, the Top 40 radio DJ countdown guy, put this parody song out in 1976. As a local Memphis DJ, he thought it would be funny for his morning show. People liked it.
At least for an entire week, the length of time the disco ditty held the number one position on the Billboard Hot 100. Apparently, that’s all listeners could take of Daffy Duck quacking along. “Disco Duck” was big enough to make it on the "Saturday Night Fever" soundtrack.
‘Who Let the Dogs Out'
“Who Let the Dogs Out” was a massive hit. It’s energetic and fun, a summertime resort vacation anthem. The track is sprinkled with rap and some lyrics, but by the end of it, you forget you heard anything else besides “Who let the dogs out?”
Somehow, the song won a Grammy for Best Dance Recording. We suppose it did make us hit the dancefloors, but the repetition of “woof, woof, woof, woof" can get on one's nerves.
Italian sync pop band Eiffel 65 made the charts with this song in 1998. “Blue” is a catchy dance tune with senseless lyrics. The peppy electro sound is what draws people to it.
Marvel Studios thought so. “Blue” is on the soundtrack of "Iron Man 3." We're glad it went to good use in the blockbuster, as it's not really lyrically rich with lines like “da ba dee da ba dye.”
