A site where I get to complain about music I don't like.
Well, the time for the contest has ended. I didn’t get as many entries as I hoped, but I did get a decent number. So I am going to put up the best entries I’ve gotten, and at the end, I’ll have the winner. The four sites where I put up the contest were Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, and DLCQuickplay. So first, the runners-up:
It was engineered to be catchy/successful, just the right number of choruses, just the right least-offensive beat, etc.

It’s got a simple and catchy chorus, combine that with the right image and anything can be a hit.

Half of the people who listen to it listen to it ironically. The other half listens to it with legitimate enjoyment. Please excuse my syntax.

Perhaps because it is about a subject that many single people have to deal with often. Putting oneself out there to give someone your number is scary and hard to do. Also, there haven’t been many songs that I can think of the cover this topic in quite this way. Of course, it’s catchy too. So that helps.

Its got a catchy chorus and beat so you can sing along.
The lyrics are so amateur and terrible, but changing the words makes it a fun game.
It’s innocent, and its melody is so catchy that even the most jaded people find themselves singing it without irony.
And finally, our winner for best entry:

Mainly because it’s a catchy pop tune, but most of its continued popularity can be found on the internet. The trolls love popular songs and post the shit out of them on sites like Failblog, FunnyJunk, and 4Chan. Just to irritate the shit out of people who like it.
So congratulations, Deltaxkila! You win your choice of blog post on Friday! And thanks to everyone who participated!
