Akon – Lonely is an irritating song.
Bobby Vinton‘s original, Mr. Lonely, is nowhere as irritating, as it seems as they sped it up. Even the high pitched wail goes up differently; imagine the feel of songs like Blue Moon. Everybody likens the voice to Alvin And The Chipmunks, but why doesn’t anybody remember Disney’s Chip ‘N Dale’s Rescue Rangers? That was a classic. I know. I watched it regularly and even loved the platform game. I even had a mini-crush on Gadget, the girl mouse.
Compare that to Alvin and the chipmunks, which you could get irritated with.
But then again, back then as kids, even if you were profusely irritated with a cartoon, you’d still watch it. We were stupid in that way. Like Dennis The Menace. Like Mighty Mouse. He was perfect. Female mouse cries. Mighty Mouse comes. No effort. Whap boom bang. With such cartoons I say, ban testing of chemicals on animals!
