  • Too Much Exposition

    So, there's this song by Joe Tex called "You're Right, Ray Charles". In it, he explains how Ray Charles has told him to write songs with exciting non-verbose funky bits for the kids to dance to. There is this great funky chorus that meets the brief, but the rest of the song is long winded exposition of what Ray Charles said about writing an exciting song and how Joe decided to follow this advice, and what he did to go about it.

    Just do the damn funky chorus, Joe.

    Any more?

    The process of highlighting the chorius is exemplified by these classic 90s post modernists:
    Enthusiastic vagueness passes for scholarship in the twilight world of the disc-jockey.

      Much exposition of how to sing and play Ooh Poo Pah Doo. If you listen, you can hear someone in the crowd wailing in despair. Just play the song already.

      Bear in mind that this only occurs after a 10 minute monologue (also on YouTube) before any music has been played at all.

      When Rufus finally gets the band to play, it is *tremendous*.

        I´m talking bout the power of LOVE"

        Phone rings. Talk to mum, hang up, take rubbish out, heat up some soup.

        "Ya see the power of LUUUV was upon him..."

          Oh yeah, and this.

          Could be improved with a Beavis and Butthead commentary.
