I’ve just heard the new Beyoncé song, Spirit, which is from the new Lion King film. It truly is spectacularly awful.
Now, I have nothing particularly for or against Beyoncé, but you have to hear it: it’s a cigarette paper-thin idea polished within an inch of its life. They’ve thrown in what sounds like about eight choirs, let alone one. At various times, the anorexic melody threatens to turn into The Voice by John Farnham (who should probably ask his lawyers to have a quick listen).
What other examples of overblown, awful, we-know-it’s-crap-but-we’re-doing-our-best-with-it songs are there?
