Party on KRQ

Filed under: Music — melomania @ 8:05 am

We have this radio station in town (the one I was ranting about last time) that plays Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA” all the time. Now, I have to clarify that I kind of like this song. Sure, it’s a guilty pleasure but it’s kind of a fun song. My only strong objection to it is that it’s performed by Miley Cyrus. But I’ll save that for another time.

The problem that I have with this particular radio station is that they play an altered version of the song. At the beginning of the chorus, there is a line that goes “…and that Jay-Z song was on…” This line is basically the fundamental point of the whole song. The entire chorus is about listening to this song. However, when it’s played on this radio station, the line has been changed to “…and John-Jay and Rich were on…”

So the entire chorus is now about listening to a (really bad) morning show? On what planet does that even begin to make sense?

Miley, I don’t care how much airtime they give you when you call in to their morning show. Changing that line ruins the whole song. And, since that particular line is sung FOUR GAJILLION times throughout the course of the song, not only does it sound stupid, it REALLY ANNOYS ME!



  1. I don’t think I could handle even “Jay-Z” being mentioned that many times.

  2. I may regret this, but I secretly love this song. Only my sister knows. I purposely torture her with it. Tell no one.
