I SO hate that thing. It's on TV commercials late at night here and that stupid frog makes me want to put a large object through the television. I know that pretty much anything can make it to number one in England, but COME ON PEOPLE. IT'S A BLOODY RINGTONE. >:0!!!!!

I've seen that frog before, it was cute the first two times but this is a bit much :|

I'm afraid that I likely can't argue that.

Weeeell, it isn't just the ring tone itself that's the #1 hit - I am told that the CD has at least as much with the theme tune to "Beverley Hills Cop" as it does with that effing frog. I don't quite know how it works and I don't really want to.

This does not make it okay, to my mind. The frog needs to die.

Re: Ugh
Anything can make it on the charts in England. I used to study the charts, back in the '90s... I'm really not surprised by this. Just disgusted.

And I love your icon. :))

I could care less about Coldplay - I was referring to the stupid frog. The frog must die!

I know! I'd emigrate but I fear the frog is going to go global soon enough.
Vicki: CAKE!hermorrine on May 30th, 2005 07:09 pm (UTC)
Well it's already here, so count the US out. And if it's here and over there, the damn thing will no doubt be everywhere else in the world soon enough. There is no hope.

P.S. The icon is for you. Happy 21st!!!!

Thank you! That is such a great cake!

All it means is that the charts don't mean anything. The Brits got to fool themselves thinking that the charts were actually meaningful for a long time because they have such a controlled market but this sort of thing happens eventually. While on the one hand it's sort of cute for them to have the ring tone available as a single, the single market is so volitile, so based on the collective whim of a bunch of teenagers, that it's truly tedious for everyone to latch some sort of cultural significance to it. Last night's ep of "soundtrack of the century" was about pop and Jon Pareles (the rock critic of the NYTimes) was saying that every time pop resurges the rock purists get all crazy about it and it's like, lighten up.

I'm not saying that to you, as you don't like this song. I'm just saying, whee, the British charts are floating off into irrelevance.

Believe me, they've been irrelevant for a long time now. I used to study the charts back when I was really obsessed with British music (late 80s/early 90s) and this sort of thing was happening then. I'm not surprised by it - it's just unfortunate. And I really do hate that damned frog.
