Personal preference

Thcompact-disce worst song of the 1990s is  has got to be “Barbie Girl” by Aqua. Weezer’s “Undone – The Sweater Song” is a close second.

The song “Blue” by Eiffel 65 is a close runner-up, but was redeemed by its potential to be used as a Blue Friday soundtrack.

Diet Coke is a hundred times better than Diet Pepsi. But I’d choose either of those before drinking a Coke Zero.

I can tolerate Diet Pepsi from a can, but from a fountain, I find it repulsive.

Dogs are awesome. I’m not particularly fond of cats.

My opinion was not at all influenced by this hysterical audition on AGT.

I’d rather take an hour-long circuitous drive through Westchester and Rockland County than sit in traffic for twenty minutes on the Cross Bronx.

Even better, avoid driving in New York altogether.

There’s no reason to keep a straight face in a Drivers License photo. A smile will never go out of style.

But a mullet will.

I’d prefer for you to leave a comment and tell me where my preferences may have gone astray.

But a simple Check! will suffice.

  19. Haha ok, I’m not sure we can be friends…the very first sentence led me to that conclusion…I personally think Barbie Girl and the Sweater song are amazing! I can live without the Blue song though but come on, that Weezer cd was amazing in the ’90s! :)

    • That is hysterical! (And encompasses two of the songs I referenced in this post!). But I’m surprised they cut it off before the most obvious misheard lyric from Bad Moon Rising at 2:37.

  32. I can’t do Pepsi. and do you hear the Blue lyrics as “Blue da ba dee da ba dah” or “Blue I will bleed I will die.” It’s so weird once you listen to that song hearing it that way.

    Like

    • I hear “da ba dee da ba die”… so the last syllable is still the same as yours. But in the age of Google, as soon as I hear a lyric I can’t figure out, I look it up, and I guess that ruins the fun of it all.

  33. You lost me at ‘not fond of cats’. But at least you didn’t attack Ace of Base. We would have had words had you gone after The Sign. All she wants is another baby, no harm in that. #check

    • To be honest, I’m surprised no one called me out on the dog/cat thing before you did. Ace of Base has a funky beat and you can dance to it… and they brought Swedish rock to the mainstream US. For a couple of months, anyway.

  35. I guess you could change it to “I’m blue, I have D – I won’t die” as a slightly depressed but ultimately uplifting anthem. Check!
