(Pacific Standard Magazine)   Nearly 6.4% of top forty hits feature references to alcohol, which some believe are "brainwashing" the pubic into drinking more. Not that they need an excuse after hearing Taylor Swift for the tenth time in half an hour   (psmag.com) divider line 31

People who are worried about references to alcohol in top forty music want there to be no booze, period.

Everyone else has better things to do with their time than worry about Demon Rum, Carrie Nation.

I can't believe it is only 6.4%.

It's not. The article says 6.4% mention a specific brand of alcoholic beverage.

Huh.  I know I tend to avoid modern pop music, but I can't think of any instances of that happening.. unless Sammy Hagar's 'Mas Tequila' song counts.

I don't know about you guys, but my pubic stings like hell when I apply alcohol, I don't care how many Taylor Swift songs I hear. I guess my pubic isn't that brainwashable. That explains why it's so picky, I guess. I can't even get it drunk.

"brainwashing the pubic"?

Hip-hop is tied up in the back room with a logo stuffed in it's mouth.

/who's surprised that none of the rock songs mentioned specific brands?

"Nearly 6.4%"

Why do writers, pretty much universally, feel the need to make a number bigger than it is?

Just say 6.3 or whatever it really is.

" So it's not particularly surprising that a study of recent hit recordings finds nearly a quarter of them mention alcohol ..."

Jimmy Buffett would like a word.

They must not have counted any country songs.


// "Jose Cuervo", " Two Pina Colodas", "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off", or even "Alcohol"

Or just don't listen to the radio and it's not a problem.

Disgruntled Goat: "Nearly 6.4%"

Why do writers, pretty much universally, feel the need to make a number bigger than it is?

Just say 6.3 or whatever it really is.


Or take the opposite spin:  "Less than 6.4%" says exactly the same thing, but means just the opposite.

This is why i like my satellite radio.
