The degree of misogyny, banal self-aggrandizement, and general misanthropy in rap over the last ten years is just too much. I love hip hop from the 80's and 90's, but they've mostly just lost the plot these days. I shudder to think of the impact on people who enjoy this shite.

And while I'm at it, "get off my lawn!"
Those sorts of lyrics are the biggest single reason I never developed a fondness for rap. Death metal, and some punk songs, turn me off for vaguely similar reasons.

Not the word so much but the phrasing, for Fleetwood Mac's Dreams
Women, they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean you'll know


She sings washes with the emphasis on the second syllable
when the rain wah-SHEZ you clean...

for as many times as I've heard the song it doesn't seem to get less irritating.
Even if the piano player can't play, keep the party going.

Mr. Big's "To Be with You"

I always thought it sounded like some sleazy pickup artist that selfishly wanted to take advantage of a distraught and vulnerable person purely for sex, while that person was suffering the trauma of a painful breakup.

Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti
Besides being an awkward, dumb line, Kilimanjaro is 200 miles away from the Serengeti. It's like saying Olympus rises above the bootheel of Italy.

Are we human or are we dancer?
Probably neither.

... or 'as sure as Jordan Rudess turns down an endorsement deal'. It's just doesn't ring true.
