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.

UPDATE:

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.

    man does this ever take me back. Edwin had some decent tunes over the years but this was definitely some heart-string tugging pablum!
