Somebody finally recognizes Nelly Furtado for what she really is . . .

a mediocre plagiarizer of styles.

I have to confess. Daryl Hall and John Oates could be fun to listen to, but Hall also apparently has a biting sense of humor (courtesy of Best of the Fests):

(FYI, Daryl scored extra cool points for altering the lyrics of the “Maneater” chorus to: “Whoa-oh, here she comes/Watch out boy, she’ll steal your song/Whoa-oh, here she comes/Her name is Nelly Furtado.” Classic!)

ย Every time I’ve tried to listen to Nelly Furtado and give her the benefit of the doubt, she bores me to tears.

Now,ย  I’m not talking about great art in either case, but judge for yourself.


Of course, I’m not ruling out the possibility that I’m a complete schmuck without any taste in music, but what the hey . . .


  1. oh I just cringe whenever I watch 80s music like H & O but you’re right – what a rip off.

    am not a fan of nelly furtado anyway, but that’s a lousy clip. I’ll be looking back on that one in 50 years and cringing even more

  2. The boredom factor for Furtado is very high. Sheesh, now I’m going to have to post a “Men at Work” video

  3. Things are gonna get interesting in a few days, depending on just how many fans lil’ Nelly has . . .

  4. do you have to be a member to read replies on that forum?

    if not, it doesn’t look like she’s got too many fans jumping to her defense yet
