Rebecca Black’s “Friday” Makes Fridays Seem Awful

If you have been wondering what the hottest music video out right now is, then feast your eyes on Rebecca Black’s “Friday.”  It is a bit like Justin Bieber meets Ke$ha meets the worst thing that I have ever heard – and at least 7 million people have watched it.  

I recognize that I’m not the target audience for this song, but I expect more from our next generation of leaders.  This video was so soul crushing that I had to watch Glee to cleanse my listening palette – and that ridiculous plan actually worked.

She looks like a less attractive version of Wendy from the Wonder Years and sounds like Lea Michele in the episode of Glee where her voice is messed up due to a cold.

So I am totally into pop culture, but this is seriously annoying. I don’t even think my students would like this… Sad days.

I totally agree, but then again I thought Ke$ha was beyond enjoyment.

While I’m glad we all agree that this is bad, you did miss an opportunity to point out that this song had some pretty hedonistic undertones.

“Fun fun fun party party weekend” is basically a Kids Bop version of seeking nothing but a life a pleasure and ease with no concern for personal enrichment. It conditions kids to seek that lifestyle. Fortunately this is a poor version of an otherwise tempting message.

I consider social time on the weekends to be pretty enriching personally. I don’t think I like it as much as Rebecca Black does, but she clearly has more time on her hands to have fun weekends than I do.
