Really annoying or really good dance tune?

I seriously can't decide. So let's discuss.

You know that song that's been getting stuck in your head these past few months? The Barbra Streisand song by Duck Sauce? I seriously can't figure out if I like the song or if I think it's just annoying. I mean, in small doses it's okay, I guess, but if it's in the wrong setting it really really bugs you! Say you're in your favourite club with all your gay mates and the DJ puts the song on. That's like the most perfect setting ever. I mean, gay guys AND Barbra Streisand? Priceless. I even think it's appropriate in the car while I'm driving from patient to patient, since I only hear like two or three minutes of it then anyway.

Those are settings I think the song works in, and it can actually make you want to pump up the volume a bit. However when you're at home, relaxing after a long day at work/school/whatever, it's not always so good. I mean, you can of course enjoy the song in your home but let's be honest, it won't really be your favourite at-home song to play, unless you're getting ready for a party and you're putting your face on and dancing and singing at the same time, a little private pre-party on your own.

And of course the song has this nagging ability to get stuck, playing over and over in your head even if you don't want it to. I think that's what I hate the most about the song. The only way to get it out again is either listen to some other music or infect someone else. Except infecting someone else might not even work. It's like a zombie that way. The disease that keeps on giving!

All in all though, I think I might have a love/hate relationship with this song. Sometimes I really love it, and it's great for clubbing and/or bobbing your head if you don't feel like dancing. Then again, sometimes it's so annoying you wanna rip your brains out just so you'll never hear it again!

Might be a better idea to rip your ears out honestly.


  1. I'm not sure ripping your ears out would work. After all, you'd still have little holes in your head, and eardrums.

  2. True. But maybe the beat wouldn't resonate so well in my earss if I did :P

  3. I don't like Duck Sauce. I don't know exactly why, but it might be beause they give me a headache.

  4. Yeah, I feel the same actually. It's pretty catchy the first few times you hear it on the dancefloor though, but you get sick of it pretty soon.
