30-Day Song Challenge, Day 2: Least Favourite Song
Least favourite doesn’t necessarily mean it has no merit whatsoever — the fact that I still remember this song exists means it must have something going for it, even if that something is a completely unearned pompousness mixed with trite sentiment and yet another rehashing of the “a baby is born every time someone dies, isn’t that such a miracle?” platitude*. I hear Edwin is now a “special guest bartender” at a club in downtown Toronto. Hopefully he still feels just as good, I guess.
It has been pointed out to me that I made a terrible mistake. As bad as “Alive” is, it’s nowhere near as awful as “Go For a Soda.” But, it turns out the video for “Go For a Soda” is maybe kind of awesome, so… let’s call it a draw?
*My favourite twist on that cliche comes at about 1:40 into this clip, courtesy of the inventor of modern computing. Yay, nerd times.
