Sunday Song Lyric

If I hear one more song with Auto-Tune I think I’ll foreswear the FM dial for good.  Don’t these guys know it makes them sound like Cher?  I am not alone in my disdain for the over-use of pitch-correction technology.  Jay-Z even wrote an award-winning song about it, “D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune).”  The lead single off his latest album, The Blueprint III, won a Grammy. Here’s how it begins:

Only rapper to rewrite history without a pen,
No ID on the track let the story begin, begin, begin

This is anti-autotune, death of the ringtone
This ain’t for iTunes, this ain’t for sing alongs
This is Sinatra at the opera, bring a blonde
Preferably with a fat ass who can sing a song, wrong
This ain’t politically correct, this might offend my political connects
My raps don’t have melodies, this should make jackers wanna go and commit felonies,
Get your chain tooken, I may do it myself – I’m so Brooklyn.
I know we facing a recession, but the music y’all making going make it the great depression
All y’all lack aggression put your skirt back down, grow a set man
Yeah this just violent, this is the death of autotune, moment of silence

Here are the full lyrics, the video, and a live performance with John Mayer.
