I like to make lists in my head while driving and listening to the radio because it makes me feel like I’m somehow organized and on top of things–like that time I made a list of bands who sing their own band name in their songs. This time, I put together a list of songs that feature annoying children’s choirs, which I think is a really cheap gimmick to make songs sound more meaningful and heart-wrenching. Except when you’re Jay-Z. Or Alice Cooper.
(Little known fact: I like to sing the opening to The Rolling Stones’ song all the time when alone in the house.)
I also realized that a lot of songs that I thought included children singing actually don’t. I need to get my hearing checked. What?
1. Pink Floyd – Another Brick In The Wall
2. Jay-Z – Hard Knock Life
3. The Rolling Stones – Can’t Always Get What You Want
4. Trick Daddy – I’m A Thug
5. Gorillaz – Dirty Harry
6. The Smiths – Panic
7. Smog – No Dancing
8. Alice Cooper – School’s Out
Honorable Mention (b/c I can’t figure out if there are really kids singing at the end): My Chemical Romance – Black Parade
Did I miss anything?
