Basshunter - Now You're Gone - Review

Deeply, darkly depressing.

Well, the UK continues to make sure that 2008 continues its unbroken run of horrific music at the top of the charts, with X-Factor dimbulb Leon Jackson's tuneless dross being knocked off by this atrocity.

You know that music the pregnant, smoking, drunk 13 year old at the back of the bus plays on her mobile phone? That dreadful, monotonous, hideous tinny noise that she only plays because she wasn't brought up to know any better? Well - THAT noise is the biggest selling single in Britain. I'm first with the sick bucket.

Bit of history then; "Now You're Gone" actually began life as an awful, but at least fairly interesting, ode to an Internet "bot" called Anna. That was in its original Swedish tongue, but that's all been eliminated in favour of lyrics so banal and generic you half suspect you read them this morning on the side of your cornflakes box. The predictable, turgid dance beat and altered singing voice tick all the correct boxes on the "Music for Absolute Scum" list.

Remember when the Manic Street Preachers were the first number one of the year? That was only eight years ago. These days we have Basshunter and "Now You're Gone", a song that is actually WORSE than the God-awful Euro-dance trash about an Internet program that spawned it. A song that every knuckle dragging, mouth breathing member of Generation Youtube now classes as "music." Million selling, number one music. Modern Britain, ladies and gentlemen.

Attention, suicide bombers of the world; come and wipe us out. We don't deserve to live.

Curmudgeon, would you be able to tell me what you are interested in? I feel that we don't know the person behind your icy exterior.

You don't like reality TV, euro-dance or Superman, but what turns you on so to speak?

I'm very intrigued.

You're not born lazy, it's an acquired skill

In a previous thread you were asking why I "don't flirt."

Now you're asking what turns me on.


Why do I get the feeling I'm going to get a pill dropped in my drink?

Don't abuse children, or else they'll turn out like me.

It's best to take Mars flat on your back, legs akimbo.

Ask Marianne Faithfull.

HTH

Yeah.. I don't really think Marianna SLEPT with a Mars Bar. Let's just say she gave it a warm .. room.
