Friday – The song that made us go ‘Huh?’

13-year-old, American, song writer Rebecca Black took the YouTube world by storm with her song ‘Friday’. However, the song wasn’t exactly…good. Musically, it’s really quite OK and fits in with some earlier Pop music (remember people like Amy Studt? It’s that kind of late 20th to early 21st century pop), but lyrically the song is abysmal. With lyrics like ‘Gotta have my bowl, gotta have cereal’ and ‘Gotta get down to the bus stop, Gotta catch my bus’ it’s no wonder that most viewers were left speechless.

Still, the teen star has managed to make a not-to-be-sniffed-at $63 000 in advertising and sales on her one and only single. My words to the young star? Well, kid, you can sing, I’ll give you that, but if I were you I’d let someone else write my songs for now, but keep working on it and maybe one day we’ll be speechless for the right reasons.
