Championship: Lil Wayne “Lollipop” vs. Metro Station “Shake It”

-A.S. It seems like so long ago that Festival Crashers came up with the idea of a contest for the Catchiest Song of the Year. The entire process has been great, and we thank everybody who has participated. It makes our work that much more fun when we have our readers nominating songs for the contest, filling out brackets and voting for their favorite songs. With all your help, this certainly won’t be the last contest that Festival Crashers runs.

The championship round sees “Lollipop” face off against “Shake It.” When I filled out my bracket, I had “Shake It” there, but didn’t see “Lollipop” making it this far. After seeing Lil Wayne perform the song live, I can understand why some people are ready to lock it up, TJ Whosyourmama style. I’m just happy that one of my songs made it to the finals, and none of Zack’s did. C’mon Zack. 90% of the time, I’m right every time.
~Z.T.~ I can’t believe I have to support either of these songs. I listened to the playlist of nominated songs non-stop for a week and never thought these two were at all catchy. What do I know? I guess I’m farther from my Girl Talk dream than I hoped if I can’t even pick the catchiest songs. Though I did get his first album this week and it sucked. I was encouraged by that.

Oh, right, I’m supposed to be arguing for “Lollipop.” Honestly, the only argument I can come up with is that Lil Wayne is the biggest rapper in the world and you’ve heard this song enough times that you think it’s catchy. The stutters on “So, so I can make it juicy for ya,” the electronic drums, the incredible repetitiveness. It’s sunk in.

-A.S. The first time I heard this song, I wanted to hate it. We were watching music videos at my friend Matt’s house. Usually, my first instinct is to not like whatever he is playing for me (the other day he tortured me by subjecting me to more Fall Out Boy than I had ever listened to in my entire life combined). I couldn’t help but love “Shake It,” though. It makes me want to jump out of my seat and dance every time I hear it. I even wanted to dance when I heard it at the 10k Lakes Festival despite the fact that I had been wandering the festival grounds for 16 hours.
I still can’t believe that Billy Ray Cyrus ever let his son leave the house looking like he does, but I’m glad that he gave him some talent. Trace Cyrus, not yet 20, helped pen one of the catchiest songs I’ve ever heard. Even the video is catchy. The way they dance, I keep expecting Zack to pop up on the video. Zack can hate on this song all he wants about how it’s not even the best song to use the word shake. Bare with him, it’s his dice move. It’s pretty much all he’s got.
