Review: Hilary Duff’s ‘Beat Of My Heart’

Hilary Duff Beat Of My Heart Hilary Duff Beat Of My Heart

Two days ago, I posted a piece called Wanted For Destroying Music . I received so many emails on that post, and 98% of you agree with me (see, who said my readers aren’t smart? 98% of you are fucking brilliant!). I appreciate the support, and I’m grateful that others are with me in this all-too-important cause. We’re being fed poison by record labels and wannabe pop-stars. It’s bad enough that teenagers are starting to dress like skanks thanks to wannabe-celebs like Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan (wait, maybe that’s a good thing”¦), but now they’re being corrupted by the poisonous bile that’s oozing from popular radio. It’s enough already!

I was serious when I said I wasn’t going to rest until I shovel the crap out of music, which brings me back to Hilary Duff. I just got out of my car and heard Hilary Duff’s new single “Beat Of My Heart.” This is one of the worst songs I have ever heard”¦ Even worse than K-Fed’s “Y’all Ain’t Ready” (really!). I remember back to my elementary school talent shows; there was always this one girl who thought she could sing. She always made a fool of herself. Well, that’s Hilary in this song. Not only are the vocals bad, the lyrics are worse. Honestly, my eight-year-old dyslexic nephew can do a better job.

TO THE BEAT OF MY HEART
TO THE BEAT OF MY HEART
TO THE BEAT OF MY HEART
I’M THINKING ABOUT LETTING IT OUT
I WANT TO GIVE IN, I WANT TO GO OUT
BEEN LOOKING AROUND, I’VE FINALLY FOUND
THE RHYTHM OF LOVE, THE FEELING OF SOUND
IT’S MAKING A CHANCE, THE FEELING IS STRANGE
IT’S COMING RIGHT BACK, RIGHT BACK IN MY RANGE
NOT WORRIED ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE
I’M WAKING UP”¦.

She pretty much sings the line, “Beat of My Heart” a 1,000 times after that. No joke. The bridge is awful too. The purpose of a bridge is to bring the song in a new direction. It’s one of the most important elements in songwriting, and it can make or break the tune. This is the fucking bridge they come up with?

AWAY, AWAY, AWAY, AWAY

Honestly, everyone involved in the making of this song ““ from the songwriter to the record label ““ should be fired, and then pelted with stones for birthing such a piece of shit into the world.
