    Re: "The Official" Black Eyed Peas Thread

    Honestly the only thing I disliked about the Halftime performance was that Fergie tried to hard to imitate Axl on "Sweet Child of Mine"! It's obvious she had the pipes for the song but it was her decision to do something forced that made it seem awkward and cringeworthy. The rest of the performance is what I would expect! It's the Superbowl which is supposed to be about Non-Stop action and showmanship. So a non-stop ADD medley of hits combined with an over the top stage show and lots of bouncing around and shouting to get the crowd involved was what I would expect. Didn't seem like an overall train wreck to me. At least we get to start fresh on somebody and get over the BGeiber thing for a while. I'll get the popcorn to watch America want to tear down another act that they helped make big. Oh, and I'll be bobbing my head to BEP while I do it! :D

    Good thread! I'm glad someone is giving BEP some props. They've definitely taken advantage of the younger generation's buying power. Nothing wrong with a little "feel good" music. It's good to enjoy something a little funky now and then! I think BEP's best stuff was from the mid 2000's. The E.N.D. has more of a "club" vibe to me. Remember this one?



    And...

    Agreed. I used to be a very big fan of the Black Eyed Peas (in fact, "Elephunk" and "Monkey Business" where two of the first albums I ever bought) but being that I don't like clubs or the music they play in clubs I was very turned off by "The E.N.D.". I thought they sounded so much more unique before that album.

    I always forget about this song for some reason, but than it comes back to me when I think about this band:

    Thanks! I have all of their work even pre-Fergie! Regardless of criticism no one else is as smart as making fun music for funs sake as BEP is! They get it! :grinthumb

    Pump It will and always will be my favourite BEP song!
    I enjoy the progression of the song, how it changes as it plays!

    I love the club stuff and being one who was going to clubs a lot at that time it was the best club dancing songs period IMO! :grinthumb

    It's nice to branch out and be able to appreciate other genres of music. I don't know one single Zeppelin song that makes me appreciate "my humps... my humps, my humps, my humps... my lovely lady lumps!"

    Yep, mine too. Plus I really like the music video. It's so absurd. :grinthumb



    Fergie beats people up with her lovely lady lumps. :heheh:

    I feel like we've discussed your love for "The E.N.D." before Sooty but I can't imagine where we actually would have done such a thing if not in this thread. :heheh:
