UK Top 40 # 32 – 31

Aww balls, this is sure to be fun. Two songs by the same group, a shitty little Cowell girl group. Then again I haven’t heard them, but it’s fairly obvious that every single thing created by Cowell and his ilk has been cash-grab empty. Even poor Leona (remember her?) has yet to reach the first rung of her potential.

32: Love Me Like You – Little Mix (Aware of you, but never heard any of your stuff) Little-Mix-Love-Me-Like-You-2510915

I come from a place where, if you actually said the words ‘Little Mix’ in a sentence, you’d be liable to get knee-capped. What an awful, awful name. Why do people put lyrics videos on youtube to stuff like this? The words are entirely irrelevant. Ok, back to the music. Puff puff drums. Has a Christmas feel. I was too busy typing to understand what was happening in the verse, but the chorus is fine. Catchy. The verses are fine, the first half annoying, the second half much better. It feels like a rip off of a much better song. The vocals are mostly garbage. It feels overlong at just over three minutes. Wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. It appears to be about sex.

31: Black Magic – Little Mix (Aware of you, but never heard any of your stuff)

Ok, this is what I was expecting. Wailing and chanting, pseudo-Destiny’s Child-I-am-a-woman-hear-me-wish-I-could-roar-anti-feminism. Again, it’s pretty catchy after that opening few seconds. Vocals crap again. Decent verse and chorus combo, so aside from being pretty childish and uninspired average pop, it’s good enough. Ticks all the boxes of what a pop song should be. It’s probably about sex.

So, what is so special about Little Mix (terrible, terrible name)? How are they different from every other manufactured pop group? I hear a lot of people defend these guys with a religious fervour, but it just sounds like ‘generic girl band # 5’ to me. Let us know in the comments.
