(Huffington Post)   How to piss people off: 1. Perform most beloved song of beloved artist on national TV. 2. Change most important lyric, thus changing the entire meaning of song. 3. Get progressively more irate at fans on Twitter. Forget you, Cee Lo Green   ( huffingtonpost.com) divider line

I couldn't tolerate the New Year's Eve celebrations on tv last night. It was the mostmindless garbage I've ever seen. Just tons of ads throughout Time Square, people carrying Nivea hats and signs, a mishmash of pop songs. I saw some guy singing what I guess is the new country western song about hillbillies. Justin Bieber on a piano. Third rate comedians ad libbing. It was like fingernails on a chalkboard. Turned it off pretty quick.

I rang in the new year leveling up my Sith Assassin in SWTOR so I luckily missed the festivities. #foreveralone

People watch TV on New Year's Eve?

How quaint.

Cee Lo, I seriously love "fark you" but that doesn't give you the right to fundamentally fark up "Imagine"

Reminds me when one of those teeny bopper twats changed the line to "Hope I don't die before I get old" in The Who's "My Generation." People who do crap like that should be raped and murdered.

I can't watch the video now, but--how does he handle the rest of the verse? I mean, "No hell below us/Above us only sky" makes no sense with, "Imagine all religions."

He still says "imagine no heaven" and "no hell." Makes no farking sense.

I actually caught that last night and had a serious WTF moment. Someone thought that was a good idea?

Art is only of value to people.
 
2012-01-01 02:00:31 PM  
This makes as much sense as inserting "when nothing important happened" into Oh Holy Night.
 
2012-01-01 02:06:47 PM  
Meh, he was just being free and expressing himself with what comes naturally. Drink 7-up!

Cee-Lo is a fat ugly dwarf. With his stumpy arms, some of his fortune must go to pay someone to wipe his fat ass and lift his gut up so he can grab his dick to pee.
 
2012-01-01 02:11:18 PM  
yeah I heard that last night. I was pissed he changed the lyric but even more pissed when he jumped it up an octave in the final verse/chorus and proceeded to screech it out until the end. total fail.
 
2012-01-01 02:17:55 PM  
"Imagine" is a "beloved" song? I don't think so. If I wanted to be preached to, I'd go to church.
 
2012-01-01 02:20:32 PM  
Damn, Morpheus got fat.
 
2012-01-01 02:23:01 PM  
This is almost as bad as changing lyrics to "I like small butts and I cannot lie."
 
2012-01-01 02:23:18 PM  
Slide 19 is pretty funny. He thinks any manner of blessing from Yoko Ono on the change is going to calm down the John Lennon fans? Heeheeheeheeheehee,

Nah, I'd rather go listen to Noel Gallagher's new solo album.

That would be Hilary Duff's cover of "My Generation."

And yes, it's godawful, as advertised.

fiddlesissy: It always amazes me what people get a burr up their ass about...just seems silly to me...


Shut your whore mouth!! This is important stuff. Society will continue its inevitable slide into chaos unless people take a stand, and thwart the desecration of treasures like "Imagine".

I mean, what if someone decided to change the lyrics to the national anthem? Where does it go from there?

It's a slippery slope we're heading dow......................

OMG BE BACK TO THIS THREAD LATER I NEED TO SUBMIT A NEWSFLASH LINK, A KARDASHIAN JUST TWEETED THAT THEY STUBBED THEIR TOE!!!

Makes more sense than the Who's Left still singing it, without any apparent irony.

If someone went up to a Jackson Pollock painting and 'added a few drops to make it better and more modern' they'd farking get shot.

fark you, fat douche with the tiny hands. Sellout motherfarker. Go butt-rape Justin Beiber and leave other people's music the hell alone.

This is the result of a fundamental problem in music. It's supposed to be white guys playing songs written by black guys, not vice-versa. See what happens when you mess with a perfectly good system of cultural exploration?

The absolute worst performance of the evening, was the cast of "Rock Of Ages" "singing" "Don't Stop Believing".
The first 30 seconds went OK, but after that, everyone in the room seriously thought that some drunks had jumped up on stage, and the cast let them sing the next verse.

It was truly horrific.
Some things can not be unheard.

all I remember is everyone was all blue and bieber had a red hat
 
2012-01-01 04:11:06 PM  
Well, that just ruins the whole year right out of the gate.
