I know that the Black-Eyed Peas are sort of dorky, homogenized hip-hop. I know that their formation was designed to make every PC liberal, and ever racial and ethnic group as happy as possible. (Or maybe I don't know that for sure, it just seems like it.) I know that the song "My Hump" is really, really dumb. So is "Let's Get Retarded," for that matter.
However, no matter what, I cannot get sick of the song "Where Is The Love?". No matter how many times I listen to it - and I just put it on my latest mixed CD - I just want to turn it up as loud as it can go and sing along.
My January '06 mixed CD does not have a theme. It's just songs I thought would be particularly good this month. That was my favorite of the day. I listened to it at least three times in between trips to school, the grocery store, home, and gym.
