overkill

April 19, 2007

i am quite a big fan of watching music videos on television. my family has foxtel which has 7 music channels. i like to switch through these channels, but mainly only 6 because one is the country music channel which only has a couple of good songs. anyway in the last couple of weeks i have noticed how so many songs are being overplayed. only tonight while watching the tellie i flicked through these music channels in the commercial break of a show i was watching. In the space of something no longer than fifteen minutes i had seen the scissor sister’s ‘i don’t feel like dancing’ twice, that stupid gwen stefani’s song where she is dressed like a prison inmate twice and silverchair’s new one a whopping four times- all on 4 different music channels. this was compounded by the fact that before this i had seen the silverchair music video another 4 or 5 times throughout the day. surely there are lots of other quality songs rather than the same songs being played over and over again- then again with the quality of modern 2007 music maybe not. maybe i am being hypocritical considering i added the kings of leon’s “on call” yesterday and in the space of two days have listened to it 40 times.

a bit off the topic but it is my post so i can say what i want. has anyone actually seen the video for “straight lines” by silverchair? my gosh daniel johns looks horrible. he is wearing a blue vest with nothing underneath and dark green pants. throughout the video he does the stupidest dance moves and gives the strangest/gayest facial expressions known the man. quite a fall from grace from a band that i have been quite fond of in past times- ima still listen to the song because it is addictive thanks to stupid cable music channels.

kicky on!

  1. I see now point at all in watching music videos. The best they can do is ruin good songs. Except that clip for Hearts A Mess by Gotye. That’s a clip and a half.

    Dunno ’bout the clip, but Straight Lines is a tops song. I was hoping the rest of the album was as good, but I think it’s not.

  3. it was funny last night after writing the post i went back turned on the TV and the gwen stefani song was on again. and miz the other day i flicked to the country music channel and saw the very end of the trace adkins clip where he is is like “this one is for all the ladies.” i was a bit cut i missed the whole song- good in-story though.

  4. my mate haggsy doesn’t like the new silverchair stuff. it’s a step away from freak anyway, and (including the dissociatives work) one can start to form a bit of a natural progression happening.

    i like the first track off the album.

  5. yeah i dont like the new silverchair either
    they are lame as now and dissociatives were crap
    i think daniel johns is crap now and the other people in silverchair are lame for being his friends, or maybe ther crap too
