No, I’m not talking about Alanis. This is actually something that is a real irony. I had the TV on the other day, and an ad came on for American Idol, and they always play a bit of the, um, do I dare call it theme music? Theme yes, music? I guess in the purest of technical senses, it’s music. But it is the absolute most pathetic excuse for a song I’ve ever heard. I just think it’s damn funny that a show designed to showcase musical talent, once you’ve weeded out all the people who suck, has a theme song that is worse than any of the candidates could possibly ever try to be? Come on, give me a song with more to it than two notes. Oh, maybe 4 or five if you count that slidy thing it does. And the worst part is they play it all the damn time! In the ads, before and after every commercial break if you choose to subject yourself to the show, and it’s even used on Canadian Idol! Are they trying to drive the point home that music is dying? Point taken!
