Ridiculous Lyric of the Week: How Does A Love Song Love Exactly?!

We’re branching out a little bit with this week’s ridiculous lyric and are honing in on one of the current pop princesses, Selena Gomez. Maybe the song isn’t in Spanish…or even Spanglish, but Gomez’s heritage is Mexican (on her father’s side and she’s named after that famous superstar…). Also, I hear this song constantly on the radio. So, I think its fair to pick on Ms. Selena this week.

Let me say first that I like Selena Gomez. I’ve heard her speak in a few interviews, and for having been in the limelight for so long, she’s got a pretty level head. However, this does not mean she creates great music (not that that’s even the measure of success any more…). Pop songs have never exactly been earth shatteringly profound, but it seems the latest string of pop songs have been particularly…ridiculous. So, with this in mind, I would like to point out the following lyric for this week from Gomez’s current hit “Love You Like a Love Song“:

It’s been said and done…

Every beautiful thought’s been already sung…

You are beautiful, like a dream come alive, incredible…A sinful, miracle, lyrical…

I, I love you like a love song, baby…

First, I would like to mention that it is probably not the best idea to point out how unoriginal your song is in the very first verse. Secondly, its like the lyricists were having an adjective free-for-all. Why did they think “sinful” fit in with “incredible” “miracle” and “lyrical” (miracle obviously got in because it rhymes so well…). Lastly, I still don’t know what it means to love someone like a love song. I get that this is a metaphor…but still, its a stretch, right?

So, while Selena’s song remains painfully catchy (I really never change the station when it comes on…), I remain distracted by its…ridiculous…lyrics.
