And this, children, is why you should not do drugs.

At least not the kind and amount Wayne Coyne is doing.

Unless you want to be a successful and critically acclaimed artist?

Aw, hell, I dropped peyote with Ke$ha once and it was the greatest night of my life!

/not really

Ke$ha CAN sing.

Proof?

Link

Her with Alice Cooper. She pops in at about one minute in.

THAT song wowed me and made me believe that if Ke$ha went rock n roll girl, dropped the auto tune, she could be bigger than she is. I also feel the same about Lady Gaga; chick can sing her ass off but is just singing the wrong music.

There is that cover on the Pump Up the Volume soundtrack... which is probably just as bad. All it does is point out how much delivery has to do with a song regardless of vocal virtuosity (or lack thereof).

toddism: that was autotuned out the arse.


Compare the amount she used in the Cooper song to the amount she usually uses... not nearly as much and more of her actual voice comes out.

Never said her part wasn't autotuned, but it is a lot less than she usually uses and does show off more of her rock vocal style than the usual shiat she pumps out. So yes, it surprised me that she can actually sing and that was the song that proved it for me.

Also; just about everyone uses auto tune now to some degree, including the greats. Ozzy, Meat Loaf, etc all have used it to varying degrees on albums. It is now a part of producing an album, whether we like it or not, especially as an artist gets older or road weary and is forced by contracts to pump out more albums.

spidermann: Also; just about everyone uses auto tune now to some degree


Exactly. Its when singers take it to maximum levels is when it becomes stupid and annoying. But, yeah, pretty much every vocal track ever has had some sort of filtering and fix-ups. Even the greatest singers.

Most of the time, it's just noise reduction, compression and normalizing. Auto tune and Auto correct aren't and shouldn't be used that often.

"Years later, the whole pop-music world would be, um "reinvented" by the sound of what one can only describe as Ke$ha and T-Pain screwing on a slot machine in a casino at 2 AM."

Singing the ass off would be a start. That skank is shaped like a thumb.

meh, don't you guys get tired of Bohemian Rhapsody? If a Queen song comes on the radio, you have a 95% chance that it will be Bohemian Rhapsody...



on that note, Ke$ha's collaboration with the Flaming Lips is pretty annoying.

Indeed. Pitch correction when used correctly is absolutely transparent. You don't even know its there because the corrections necessary for people with actual talent are minimal. If you're of the "Lets tune this thing up to 11 because I'm so clever and now it's part of my sound" persuasion, you are probably a star for some reason not involved with actual talent.

I have. An attention whore spaz of a lead singer, inflatable balls, and wacky outfits are my lasting memory.

Other posters have pointed out other crappy bands, though. Death Cab in particular.
