What? A Good Black Eyed Peas Song?

Black Eyed PeasSign #3,934 of the Apocalypse: I think I like a Black Eyed Peas song.

The implications of this are enormous. I may even have to change the purpose of my blog. Can I still ridicule them and keep my dignity?

It’s “I Gotta Feeling.” And, dare I say it, it’s a good Black Eyed Peas song.

For once, the rapping takes a back seat, and the melody is simple but not annoying. In fact, it’s downright hummable. (Disregard the Auto-Tune.) The bass line is a familiar I-IV-vi-IV pattern. Fergie’s bridge is even more melodic, even though I still can’t stand her voice. And even the rapping is not as awful as some I’ve heard – it’s on the beat, and of course, less is more when it comes to rap. The result is an uncluttered, focused…What’s the word I’m looking for?…oh yeah, song.

Please help.
