I'm pretty sure his name is Simon LeCowell.
Four for tenacity.

Five for the guy who doesn't so much sing as talk over the first one.

Why are some women twice as hot when they laugh uncontrollably.
Anyway, what ever happened to originality, its like every one of these things is a rip off of some other pop 'artist' who has no talent or styles outside of one huffing panting deal with enough tacky ornamentation to fail someone out of a rudimentary baroque counterpoint class.
Then again, I have a music degree, what do I know about music.
Yes, because those with "music degrees" have traditionally shaped the pop music landscape.
Goethe and ernie
Simon Cowell's explained, in so many words, that he doesn't actually like music. He's a soulless fuck, but fair play I suppose, at least he's not pretending to be anything other than a philistine with a knack for making dollar.
No clue what you're going on about, Harriet. If you want instances of "baroque counterpoint" you should probably switch on the radio - the basic principles of counterpoint are employed in pretty much every pop and rock song out there.
Thematic key-changes, song length, tonic complexity, genre-enforced orchestration; those, those suck nowadays, most of the time. Pop songs sound "simple" because they focus on catchy, simple melodies - like Fur Elise, or the Habanera - but more often than not the techs writing the songs are really strong composers.
If pop sounds derivative to you, that sucks, but it's kinda your fault for not being able to see passed the arrangement. Or really, it's the consumers fault. If only everyone was as clever as you are! If only the plebs had music degrees!

Recent videos have forced me to reassess my opinion of Wales. I may have to move there.

I love when the second guy isn't sure when to jump in, misses his chance and has to wait for the next line.
"and that's what they're missin"
