American Idol MURDERS the BeeGees

May 9, 2007

This week America is mourning yet another tragedy.  Across the country there have been tornadoes and floods and wildfires raging out of control.  Many people have died or been injured, but America had salt rubbed in the wound when they watched American Idol this week.

Many people feel that disco died in the early 80s, but it wasn't until 2007 when American Idol came along and murdered the Bee Gees.  Barry Gibb didn't put up much of a fight.  He even attempted to help his tormentors but in the end they murdered his songs and music that he and his brothers created over several decades.

Sanjaya may have been the worst of the bunch, but the bunch is overall pretty terrible itself.  In many ways it's extremely unfortunate that the vote for the worst project didn't succeed in taking Sanjaya to the final round.  If that had happened it's possible that American Idol itself could've been put out of its misery and suffering across America would end this year.

As it is American Idol has become a sick and twisted version of groundhog's Day repetitively torturing great musicians and songwriters and the ears of Americans several nights a week.  Many people feel that Simon Cowell provides accurate advice even though it might be a little harsh.  The truth is his advice is nowhere near accurate.  If he had good advice to provide he would shut the show down and either never started again or least attempt a do over with a fresh batch of contestants that hopefully have a little bit of talent and possibly even a little bit of depth.

If there is one positive thing that American Idol is doing, it's possibly helping people to see that watching TV and especially talent competitions is a complete waste of time.  There's nothing entertaining about it when there is no actual talent on the competition.  This is allowing people to consider many other options of entertainment from getting outside in doing so exercise, to going to the movies, writing to the beach, or picking up some baseball tickets and spending the afternoon at the ballpark.  (Provided some former American title contest in doesn't show up to sing 'Take me out to the ballgame' or the Star-Spangled Banner!  For my money I'd rather listen to Roseanne sing and have to experience additional Idol moments.)
