Just say no to country music! :0)

So, as many of my close friends know....I'm not a huge fan of country music. This is not to say that I HATE country music, or that I NEVER listen to country music, it simply means that I prefer other genres.

OK, honestly...."real" country music drives me batty. There are a select few that sound more like "regular" music than country and so I find myself able to listen to those. Otherwise, I'd just as soon have silence. {And that's saying a lot for me!}

Seriously, just read some of the titles of country songs past and perhaps you will understand my distaste for the twang....

Get Your Tongue Outta My Mouth 'Cause I'm Kissing You Goodbye
I Don't Know Whether To Kill Myself Or Go Bowling
I Flushed You From The Toilets Of My Heart.
Billy Broke My Heart at Walgreens and I Cried All the Way to Sears
I Don't Care if it Rains or Freezes 'Long as I Have My Plastic Jesus Sittin' on the Dashboard of my Car
If I Can't Be Number One In Your Life, Then Number Two On You
I'm Here To Get My Baby Out Of Jail
Queen Of My Double-Wide Trailer
Redneck Martians Stole My Baby
You're The Reason Our Kids Are So Ugly

Don't those songs just sound so heartwarming? I'm being a bit stereotypical here....but seriously! People actually wrote these songs, and someone thought they'd be great to share with the public. It's crazy!

And, now that I have offended my country loving friends.....

no offense taken...I do love a good country song - - but I have NO idea where those came from. I'm laughing at the titles! :) They are FUNNY!

I was afraid this post was going to offend me, but instead the song titles offended me. Really? Those are real songs? Like from the Ozarks or something? They are funny, but kind of disturbing, no?

Montay said...

Well then hummmmmm.. I have no idea where you found those titles.
I love me a good oll cunnnturrreee song..

I am with Montay. Where did you get those titles? Here's a few of my Favs: Here by Rascal Flatts, He Gets That from me by Reba and I Saw God Today by George Strait. I still love you and no you didn't offend me. I love you!

That good old Cam finds all of the interesting stuff doesn't he? I got these to and just laughed at him. Have you hear some of the words and titles of some non-country songs???? Not that I don't not like all types, but I do like me some country. Rascal Flats is great. I just bought one of there cd's

i've been listening to country music for a long time now and i've NEVER heard of any of those songs.

usually, if a song sounds corny, i turn the station. :)

You just posted that so we would all comment. huh? I have actually only heard of one of those songs and that is the queen of my double wide trailer. I didn't like it.

Those are some funny song titles. I am very selective of the country music I listen to.
