I’m going to start a new category here called burn factor where we take a hard look at a song and determine when it will get old. We’ll rank the jam from 1-100. This number will determine how many listens it will take for a song to get old.
Let’s start with download sensation Ke$ha’s “Tik Tok.” I get it. It’s fun. I want to listen to it right before I put on my faux tuxedo shirt (aka my going out shirt) and go take a bunch of Jagerbombs. Upon first listen I kind of enjoyed it in an ironic-I-only-listen-to-bands-you’ve-never-heard-of kind of way. I’ve now heard it 3 times and want stick dynamite in my ears and blow them right off. Isn’t one Lady Gaga enough? I think so.
Burn Factor: 4 – This song is annoying.
