Who hasn’t wondered at the stunning popularity of today’s country music? What beast drives these hit songs? Jon Kovash at Mountain Gazette analyzed the Billboard Country Top 20 to find out what the lyrics might mean (if any meaning at all). Here’s a sample:
12. Shedaisy — “Don’t Worry ’Bout A Thing”
Sometimes life sucks, and sometimes it’s great. Either way, you should never worry. “Ever lost your religion, ever lost your best friend/or found your last record in the bargain bin” (Apparently these calamities are equivalent). NOTE: If the chorus really does consist of the word “blah” repeated 15 times, my respect grows for this song.
As for The Snow Junkies, we have only one question. Why hasn’t Johnny Cash risen from the dead and beaten Toby Keith to death? The man has an album called Honkytonk University. Are you fucking kidding? Check out the rest of the article right here.
