The Weekly Groove

Happy Friday.  Ben and Tyler here, and we would like to introduce you to our very first guest blogger.  We bring to you today a music guru of the highest regard.  He is known around the Montgomery County area as one of the most in-tune sets of ears who has a knack for being able to detect the pulse of pop culture.  He knows which songs are going to be hits before they are even written.  He even helped Katy Perry write "I Kissed a Girl" based on his personal experiences of kissing girls. Without firther ado, here is Sir Billiam and his first installment of "The Weekly Groove".


I would like to start off by thanking the Battle of the Beltway for providing me with entertainment galore.  I will try to keep this short and sweet.  My name is Sir Billiam and I am here today to discuss what may define our generation's music.  It is music and lyrics by non other than the ever so talented and beautiful Rebecca Black.  It has been said that her song "Friday", seen below, is the inspiration for many talented acts such as Justin Bieber, Lady GaGa, Lil John, and many others who rely solely on their natural singing abilities to produce hit records.

It is rare these days that you find songs with profound lyrics that really speak to you.  In the 50's, there was the introduction of Rock and Roll, the 60's and 70's used music as a social and political voice, we will skip the 80's, (I am not sure what went on there except bad hair and techno) and the 90's brought us the grunge rock scene followed by boy bands.  These are all looked upon today as definitions of the time periods through music.  However when we look back in 20 years from now at the 2010's, we will say to ourselves there is one song that took our country from the economic shit hole it is currently to the richest fucking place on earth, which it should be. The only debt we will have is for the ass beating we owe other countries for not paying us.  I am even willing to go as far as saying that this song may bring world peace (because America says so) and fight off hunger in third world countries (again because of America). Rebecca Black is on tour at the moment and I can tell you that I will be the first in a very long line of people to grab a front row seat. I have never been so inspired by music as I am when I listen to "Friday".  Nobody has had a musical ear like hers since, I dare say, Mozart.  Be on the lookout for Rebecca Black, coming to a town near you, and ready to rock your socks off.

Thank you.  I hope to return soon.

  1. On behalf of the Battle of the Beltway we would like to say thank you Sir Billiam for your musical insight. We would however like to distance ourselves from his opinions on the 80's and her music. Synthesizers changed the game. Period.
