2006 - kinda crappy

I know this sort of thing is traditionally done in late December rather than mid-January, but I have a sort of ANTI-TRADITIONISTIC personality.

The Best And Worst Singles of 2006:

BEST SINGLE OF THE YEAR: Ciara's "Promise"

As you know, because I've raved about this song in at least two posts, even though Prince released an album this year, it was kinda mediocre, and nothing on his album 3121 was as Prince-y as Ciara's "Promise".

WORST SINGLE OF THE YEAR: Rihanna's "Unfaithful"

"I don't want to be...(pause for dramatic effect and so Rihanna can gaze mournfully at the camera)....a murderer!"
The lyrics were GOD-awful. "I don't want to be a murderer"????? NO! Lamest thing ever.

Interesting how the best and worst singles both came from single African-American girls who are known for not really having strong voices.

(Please remember this is my OPINION....yes I'm allowed to express it)

I hate Unfaithful, so good choice. She is extremely nasal (sings through her nose) when she sings that song. (Being around a choir makes you have strange pet peeves.)

ahhhh, Rihanna has a scarce amount of creative talent, but while Promise isn't my fave song, kudos to Ciara for emotion in the song itself.
