What does your taste in music say about your intelligence. Beyoncé fans, you may want to skip this.

If you’re a fan of Beyonce, then you’re probably kind of dumb. Just thought you’d like to know. Also, Justin Timberlake, T.I. and Lil Wayne listeners aren’t the brightest lights on the Christmas tree either, so, if you’re one of them, don’t apply for Jeopardy. It’s okay, don’t worry, just put on your Dre headphones and accept the hard fact that there are some things – well, actually, many things – that you will never understand. And the sooner you realize that, the happier you will be.

So what’s the deal with this blog post? Well, you see, a CalTech student named Virgil Griffith conducted back in 2009 a highly scientific study about how music tastes correlate with intelligence. Oh, by “highly scientific”, I mean he figured out college students’ favorite music by looking at their Facebook profiles and compared that data to a college population’s overall S.A.T. scores, creating a tongue-in-cheek statistical look at taste and intelligence.

“let’s get retarded”

(Warning: this post is unusually  pissed off and includes high levels of subjectivity.We’ll be back to regular programming next time.)

Click here (at your own risk!) for THE MOST RETARDED cover I’ve ever heard.

Also, this (song?!) was the longest product placement/ad I`ve ever seen:

0:25 – Beats by Dr. Dre

2:02 – Ice watch (make sure the logo is clearly visibile)

2:12 – BlackBerry PlayBook (repeatedly, they had the biggest budget in this thing)

3:18 – Apple (in lyrics)

Are they making music, or 313 seconds of ads?

Oh, want to know the recipe for stealing real talent from others and piece together this garbage? Well, it’s simple:

1. Make sure you have solid position in the charts.

2. Pick a beautiful hit from the eighties, preferably a song unknown to most of the teenagers.

3. Take the chorus out of it.

3. Write a few lines of uninspired lyrics.

4. Combine the chorus and your own lyrics shamelessly into a totally different song, different enough to make teenagers think it’s an original.

5. Get away with it too easily, due to the fans’s adoration.

6. Profit! (AKA people used for their money).

P.S.: Didn’t they (already) have a song saying: “Let’s get retarded, let’s get re-tar-ded in here”? (again, this is painful to watch and the voices are awful, so click it at your own risk). The point is: why did they need to make another retarded song if they already had one?

And what happened to this kind of music? I know, this is one “Amelia Earhart”-question. But, still!

… going on vacation. see you all in 2011!

Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to all! I wish you white, snowy holidays and a 2011 full of unexpected good things. And thank you for reading. :)

I thought to give you a carol. But, in the end, I found this song and I think it’s better than a Christmas carol. After all… if it’s love… it’s Christmas. Isn’t it? :)

UPDATE: Since someone loves that much Train :D… voilà: even more Train. :D
