Music Video Pick | “Friday” by Rebecca Black

Did you know that Friday comes after Thursday and before Saturday? Apparently Rebecca Black didn’t or, if she did, she just wanted to give us all a friendly reminder. In spite of the heavy Autotune, Black’s voice remains shrill and her attempts at Mariah-esque riffs are cringe-worthy. The lyrics are inane and the graphics in this video are, in a word, tacky. But let’s put production value and actual musicianship aside for a minute. Did anyone else notice that Rebecca’s friend – who is “cruising so fast” on the highway with her – has braces? Braces!! All I know is that she should not be cruising in the back of a convertible. What are her parents thinking? If you haven’t seen this newest YouTube sensation, take some time to party, party, party on a Friday with Rebecca Black on this week’s Music Video Pick. But be forewarned; you may have to look away in discomfort and pain.
