Pitchfork has started its mega-special, “The Year in Music 2003″. Lots and lots of lists, basically - but I like Pitchfork’s lists. Sometimes they try a little too hard to be witty, but it’s nice to be able to see the individual reviewers’ quirks of taste.
Having gone to more bars and clubs in the past week than I usually go to in a month, I can now safely say that the Most Overrated Hip-Hop Song Ever is Outkast’s “The Way You Move” (great opening, then just degenerates into a boring chorus over. and. over. again.), and the Most Overplayed Hip-Hop Song Ever (as well as the runner-up for the Most Overrated Hip-Hop Song Ever) is… Outkast’s “Hey Ya”. Ugh.
And by “ever”, I mean “in the past few months”.
