SONG OF THE DAY: Beautiful Loser


Some things are so beautifully stupid they are you. Bob Seger had a knack for making shit like that, then he took himself serious, and now I think he’s actually a cyborg powered by experimental General Motors robotics being funded by the Koch Brothers. Because of this Cyborg Seger only allows you to like the appropriate songs, which are forced into 70s theme radio consciousness (now satellite channels) which impregnate your brain with thoughts of “wow I could get 0% financing on a new Silverado!” except let’s be serious, you and me don’t qualify. We are legit beautiful losers, not art ones, and great art born from truth eventually homogenized into selling manufactured shit is no longer as great an art as the fucked up messes that represent it. Nobody is tattooing Bob Seger lyrics on their bodies, or if they are they are likely cops or at least pro-cop, and nobody who is ever pro-cop should ever be trusted on anything, even simple shit like music. Anyways, these are my thoughts on Bob Seger’s “Beautiful Loser”. I hope you don’t wreck your car again this weekend.
