{it happened}

my two least favourite musicians/bands IN THE WORLD are simple plan and natasha bedingfield.

it has been this way for years, and it's pretty non-negotiable. there are contenders {shania twain, nickelback and all their sound-alikes, that girl who sings the song about how she doesn't know how we're going to build a castle now but she'll stay until the sun goes down, katy perry, miley cyrus, lil wayne and a lot a lot a lot of others}, but simple plan and natasha bedingfield are the worst.

as 7th heaven is to tv, and the last song is to movies, natasha bedingfield and simple plan are to music. if you don't believe me, go to youtube and seach for natasha's song about babies and simple plan's "welcome to my life." or just trust me.

yesterday, i was driving home from a thing, and flipping through the radio "just to see", as if someday there might be something worth listening to on any station other than cbc, and LO AND BEHOLD.

i paused on a station playing a hilariously bad song about someone who says 'good morning' when it's midnight and whose heart heart heart is so jet lagged heart heart heart is so jet lagged heart heart heart is so jet lagged.

i could not contain my cheshire grin when the radio dj said, "...awesome. the latest from simple plan, featuring natasha bedingfield, that was jet lag..."

wot?

flabbergasted. i never thought i would see the day when the bottom fell out of rock bottom and mainstream music would plummet into whatever is under that.
