I hated Neyo’s ‘So Sick’ when it first came out, thought it was the most annoying, syrupy song ever. As is always the case when I hate a song, radio seems to love it. And thrash it. I had to come up with a coping mechanism to help me deal with the trauma of having to listen to it. So, you know when he sings, ‘why can’t I turn off the radio?’ Yeah, well, I kinda liked to imagine that the reason Neyo can’t turn off the radio is because he has no arms. The song was much more enjoyable after that.
I liked to pretend that the video was shot close-up, but then pans out wide when he sings ‘why can’t I turn off the radio’ to reveal his two stumps for arms flailing about, unable to turn the radio off. It’s kind of messed up now that I actually write it down.
Not entirely sure what the point of this insight into the twisted workings of my mind is except that I do enjoy making up stupid little backstories to go with songs from time to time. I also hope that now every time you hear this song, you too can imagine Neyo with no arms. Experience enhanced x100.
