Deirdre Hughes didn’t contact me

Saturday, May 17th, 2008

She didn’t even post some terminally retarded comment, but just a good old fashioned “Hey, thanks for adding me, have a nice day”, unlike most of the retards who keep trying to use the comment section of Myspace as some sort of advertisement board.

She is, however, a singer, so I’ll review here anyway, because I feel like it. Just before I start on the actual music, I’d like to point out that her Myspace is actually decently designed and reasonably simplistic. Points straight from the beginning for that alone.

Also, unlike most artist who uses outrageous clothing or insane sexualization, she just uses pictures like this one.

First song is “Change”, a rather normal country song, in the slow, soft and fairly decent way. Her voice is fairly good, the lyrics aren’t anything special, all in all, it’s an almost overwhelmingly mediocre song, which I guess isn’t that bad a thing, considering the environment of today’s music.

“Turn back the hands of time” starts with bloody banjo music, hahahaha, seriously, I just can’t take any music who seriously tries to use a fucking banjo. A banjo, the single most hilarious musical instrument, only beaten by the bagpipes. I can’t even say anything about this song, because of the damn banjo. Well done Deirdre, I can’t review your song due to Banjo.

“Backstairs” has a decent music, and it has my favourite use of voice, the strong almost yelling style, I have a personal preference for that particular style, well done, pretty sure the song is about how she wants to get up. She lose points for letting it be a sample.

Not that it matters, as I don’t use a point system.

“Redneck male” has the worst damn name ever, glorifying a culture of idiots and racism isn’t really anything I can stand behind. Also, it’s fairly average. Also sample, BAD GIRL!

“Heart of Glass” is way to romantic, and she falls for the annoying temptation of babbling on about how hard love is etcetera etcetera. Also a fucking sample, dammit, not buying your fucking CD now.

“Waitress in a Waiting house” is pretty much like the rest, really.

I gotta admit that Country music really isn’t my favourite, I prefer music with a bit more “go” in it. Also, I always get this weird mental image of rednecks sitting on their porch with a shotgun, mumbling about how “It’s all them there blacks fault”, hell, I can’t even spell the same ridiculous accent the Southern parts of the US has.

There was that moron who wanted me to buy her damn book, who kept bothering me with some utterly retarded Southern US accent, written that is, which makes no fucking sense.

But, Deirdre is a fairly decent singer, and whoever writes some of her music, is at least reasonably skilled.

The person who decided on the sample should be shot though, that’s just stupid.
