Reeking of desperation never sounded so good

Music is definitely not great anymore. In fact, it's pretty far from it. Remember girl groups from the 60's?

They were great.

They loved their men. They would do anything to get that man. And when that got that man, he was the light of their life.

Now days, the concept of a girl group can't happen because there's too much divatudes going on. You got Beyonce, who used to be part of girl group Destiny's Child (but you were cooler than me having to explain this one) and now, what? Well, before they'd sing stuff like "Say My Name" and maybe there were hints of 60's songs of dedication, but now, it's just stuff like "Single Ladies" in her solo gigs, where, well, what can I say? It makes women sound pushy. What the hell kinda lyric is "If you like it then you better put a ring on it"? What is it? A woman? Beyonce? Who the hell refers to themselves as it?

It almost seems like now days, if a woman were to write a song about loving her man, she'd come off as desperate. Whatever. I'd much rather listen to music from the 60's that's actually good and more danceable than Beyonce.
