Goddamnit ILM, talk about Eamon! Eamon: C or D?

A while back I started a thread asking if anybody had heard "F*ck It" by Eamon and only got one response. Well the song is rising up the top 40 now so I have to assume some of you have heard it now.

I demand to hear what people think of Eamon. Anybody heard a promo of his upcoming debut? you can watch the video for "F*ck It" on his site, www.eamondoyle.com.

I refuse to believe nobody has any reaction to this song. It made my Pazz & Jop Top Ten singles this year.

um...I thought it was pretty poor. Boring production, his voice is kinda thin, just seemed like a by-the-book late 80s/early 90s R&B with a injection of macho swearing and bitch baiting so, you know, 50 Cent fans can like it without being called pussies.

M@tt He1geson (Matt Helgeson), Saturday, 17 January 2004 21:00 (sixteen years ago) link

I'd assume this guy was to R&B what the Darkness is to hair metal, but the more I find out about this guy the more it seems like he's not kidding at all. The video is outrageous.

Anthony Miccio (Anthony Miccio), Saturday, 17 January 2004 21:04 (sixteen years ago) link

This song, Murphy Lee's "What's The Hook Gon Be?" and Nickelback's "My Favorite Disease" are the two songs I most get google hits looking for lyrics from on my site. Which is really, really odd.

Anthony Miccio (Anthony Miccio), Saturday, 17 January 2004 21:09 (sixteen years ago) link

I'd assume this guy was to R&B what the Darkness is to hair metal

...or a more polished Har Mar Superstar....

What the Hook Gon Be just never gets old for me....

M@tt He1geson (Matt Helgeson), Saturday, 17 January 2004 21:18 (sixteen years ago) link

Anthony Is Right. Evidently people assume I have the lyrics to Nickelback songs on it. I don't.

This song has been getting fairly heavy airplay around here and I like it, mostly cause there's cussing! Hooray for cussing!

Dan I., Monday, 2 February 2004 02:37 (sixteen years ago) link

I swear to you, on one of the verses I'm pretty sure he says something like "I'm sorry I was dating a whore" which is just like, what? I'm completely unconvinced this is serious, wtf?

Allyzay, Wednesday, 4 February 2004 14:50 (sixteen years ago) link

I'm sorry he was dating a whore too

Dadaismus (Dada), Wednesday, 4 February 2004 14:56 (sixteen years ago) link

I'm not. If it results in a song and video as funny as this one, he should exclusively date whores.

Allyzay, Wednesday, 4 February 2004 14:57 (sixteen years ago) link

I'm glad I found this thread. I saw a video for this on MTV2 this-morning while trying to convince myself to go to work, and I really couldn't tell if it was a joke (by which I mean an intentional joke) or not. Now I'm just convinced that he either has some truly serious dirt on someone or just stuck a truckload of horses heads in various music industy execs beds.

mmmmsalt (Graeme), Wednesday, 4 February 2004 17:55 (sixteen years ago) link

It's catchy, his voice is pretty sweet and the chorus includes the line, "Fuck you, you ho." Gotta be a classic.

Salmon Pink (Salmon Pink), Thursday, 5 February 2004 02:51 (sixteen years ago) link

Lazy ass songwriting. Kisses that "don't mean shit" in one line "don't mean jack" in another (you know, so he can rhyme it with "don't want you back.") And the video is obnoxious. Dud.

Salmon Pink (Salmon Pink), Thursday, 5 February 2004 02:53 (sixteen years ago) link

HAW HAW HAW I WAS RIGHT ALLLL ALONGGGGG. THIS SONG IS FUCKING HIIIIIILARIOUS. I MEAN SERRYUSSLY this is not a joke. God help me THIS SONG IS NOT A FUCKING JOKE. What the fuck? Staten Island whitey gets to scream I WAS DATING A HO and he gets a top 40 hit? What the serious fuck.

Anthony Miccio (Anthony Miccio), Thursday, 5 February 2004 07:05 (sixteen years ago) link

I'm so glad this will be on my permanent record as a Pazz'n'Jop Top Ten single for 2003. I beat the bell curve yo.

Anthony Miccio (Anthony Miccio), Thursday, 5 February 2004 07:06 (sixteen years ago) link

oh man. seriously if you ever find out how yer dating a ho what you gotta do is take her to an outdoor pizza bistro. Then RIGHT when the pepperoni arrives you start ripping into her and then around the third verse you just fah-LING that pizza across the place cuz GAWDAMN if it ain't bad enuff you caught her cheating now she's gonna know that she's not gonna have any pizza. This video is some sorta gospel. TAKE NOTES.

So has anyone else heard the album? I'm listening for the first time right now and so far it's about half really great and half pretty bland.

Colin Beckett (Colin Beckett), Sunday, 7 March 2004 23:18 (fifteen years ago) link

i kept hearing about a response record by some girl supposedly the original song was written about called "fuck you back". forget who it's by though

JaXoN (JasonD), Sunday, 7 March 2004 23:51 (fifteen years ago) link

"Fuck You Right Back" by Frankee (or Frankie) is hitting the airwaves big time around here. it's a pretty funny response, lines like "your sex was wack / fuck you right back" and the like. though i'm sure it will lose its flavor even faster than the Eamon original.

jonviachicago, Sunday, 7 March 2004 23:57 (fifteen years ago) link

The video is pure comedy. It scans kind of like the consolation prize to the first runner-up at the Color Me Badd auditions.

Dan Perry (Dan Perry), Monday, 8 March 2004 00:00 (fifteen years ago) link

strongo hulkington (dubplatestyle), Monday, 8 March 2004 00:18 (fifteen years ago) link

The song is terrible but I do like it in a "watching a car crash into a pile of dead babies" way.

Dan Perry (Dan Perry), Monday, 8 March 2004 00:20 (fifteen years ago) link

two songs on this album are the first guilty pleasures ive had in years! he's like a more annoying 4th singing beastie boy and yet those catchy ho-wop melodies mean i keep putting those mp3s ('i'd rather fuck with you' and 'get off my dick' to be specific) back in the queue :/

jeremy jordan (cruisy), Monday, 8 March 2004 00:24 (fifteen years ago) link

To me, that single sounds exactly like Leo Sayer. This is a criticism.

All Bunged Up. (Jake Proudlock), Monday, 8 March 2004 00:25 (fifteen years ago) link

haha eamon is the first TRUE emo-"rap" star (in the nu-emo sense). mmmm passive-aggressive misogyny.

strongo hulkington (dubplatestyle), Monday, 8 March 2004 00:41 (fifteen years ago) link

seriously aside from the obvious musical/sonic strictures imposed by individual genres (and the attendant cultural baggage [practice lookin hard vs. precious moments eyeballs]) please tell me how this bullshit differs from dashboard confessional

(aside from the fact that i'd rather have sizzling hot needles inserted into my urethra than listen to d.c. ever again, and eamon just kinda bugs me.)

strongo hulkington (dubplatestyle), Monday, 8 March 2004 01:12 (fifteen years ago) link

He's like Cody Chesnutt without the sense of humor, which probably doesn't sound like an endorsment. I'm pretty indiscriminating when it comes to R&B.

Colin Beckett (Colin Beckett), Monday, 8 March 2004 01:17 (fifteen years ago) link

i really, really, REALLY react badly to even the hint of possible not-really-meaning-it in R&B.

r. kelly gets away with it because he always looks like the ridiculousness spilling out of his mouth is DEATHLY SERIOUS.

strongo hulkington (dubplatestyle), Monday, 8 March 2004 01:21 (fifteen years ago) link

R. means it too! Which is why he's the greatest thing in the world, instead of the worst.

Colin Beckett (Colin Beckett), Monday, 8 March 2004 01:22 (fifteen years ago) link

I didn't mean to invoke "World's Greatest"

Colin Beckett (Colin Beckett), Monday, 8 March 2004 01:22 (fifteen years ago) link

jeremy jordan (cruisy), Monday, 8 March 2004 01:22 (fifteen years ago) link

also: his sucking.

He went to my high school. My sister knew him. Said we was a loser.

roger adultery (roger adultery), Monday, 8 March 2004 01:25 (fifteen years ago) link

Dude, Jel, Eamon knocks over the pizza at the end of the video! He waits till the pizza gets there to bitch her out so that he knows she's getting hungry to eat the pizza. Then at the last second he FLINGS that pie across the table, sayin' you can't fuck with him and you SURE AS FUCK AIN'T GETTING NO PIZZA.

sayin' you can't fuck with him and you SURE AS FUCK AIN'T GETTING NO PIZZA

But Frankee has proved that she can fuck with him and she SURE AS FUCK DON'T NEED NO PIZZA. Fuck him, his pizza was wack.

I mean really, why would anyone side with Eamon over Frankee?

The Lex (The Lex), Friday, 16 April 2004 15:25 (fifteen years ago) link

I like the Frankee version even better than the Eamon one! But that doesn't mean that his version is terrible, it's a good song.

El Diablo Robotico (Nicole), Friday, 16 April 2004 15:38 (fifteen years ago) link

It is a good song, but I can't get past Eamon's noxious whine of a voice, it's grating in a horribly emo sort of way and reminds me of the dread Durst. Even if Frankee didn't exist I'd side with the girl in the Eamon song.

The Lex (The Lex), Friday, 16 April 2004 15:43 (fifteen years ago) link

I've never heard the reply song, but I immediately side with the girl, as Eamon is a whiney, potty-mouthed, inarticulate slackjaw.

Anyone got any thoughts on this compared to Shysties version of / riposte to, Dizzee’s I Luv You? I think there should be more response songs in modern pop given how misogynistic and homophobic most of it inherently is.

myke boomnoise (myke boomnoise), Friday, 16 April 2004 23:31 (fifteen years ago) link

I haven't heard the Frankee song yet. It got crazy hate on the local R&B station. There seems to be a lot of Eamon love in this town.

Anthony Miccio (Anthony Miccio), Saturday, 17 April 2004 16:16 (fifteen years ago) link

The unironic kind, frighteningly enough.

Anthony Miccio (Anthony Miccio), Saturday, 17 April 2004 16:16 (fifteen years ago) link

I think there should be more response songs in modern pop given how misogynistic and homophobic most of it inherently is.

True dat, but first there have to be more women and gay men in genres like hip-hop and garage to do the response songs. (And more love given to the ones who ARE there - I've only skimmed the grime thread, but Lady Fury is only mentioned like two or three times!) Shystie is wicked.

The Lex (The Lex), Saturday, 17 April 2004 16:30 (fifteen years ago) link

christhamrin (christhamrin), Saturday, 17 April 2004 17:55 (fifteen years ago) link

I love Eamon's release of F**k It (I don't want you back. Frankee copied his version! I'm not saying it's a shit reply coz her song is wicked, but Eamon just rules! I love him and so do all my mates. I love the way they have replied to each other, but is Eamon's song for Frankee? Apparently I heard it was fro another ex-girlfriend called Andrea? Is this right? Anyway Eamon's song is better - I love it and Frankee's song comes as a second in my personal chart at the moment!

It's now "I Love Them Ho's."

ok actually I just discovered that he didn't ADD the word "ho's" the promo copy I got when I reviewed this was clean so they had taken out the word "ho's" (what is up with that apostrophe?). For some reason they're keeping it now (at least on Launch). I really wish this was added after the fact.

Revive, as I just got a copy of the album.
It's terrible in a fascinating way. As I listen to it, I can TELL I'll be tired of it in two days; but it's great for the moment.
Utterly disposable... just like he turned out to be.
Whence Eamon these days? Opening for William Hung?

Forksclovetofu (Forksclovetofu), Wednesday, 20 October 2004 20:48 (fifteen years ago) link

Though truth be told, there may be a few keepers on here: "Fuck You" is still pretty tasty and I like "Get Off my Dick" and "Ho-Wop" enough that they may stay in rotation.
"Fuck You" seems like a likely OMGWTFLOL winner of the future.
Forget dub Hung, E. should be opening for Snow.

ugh I just had the displeasure of hearing this goddamn song again this morning for the first time in 4 years! god I thought it was horrible when.

but whether or not the Frankee version was staged (uh, it totally was), some really lame disses throughout. She faked orgasms? OMG AN "EVERY WOMAN IN THE WORLD" SHOCKER. even my most recent ex admitted she did on occasion (but wouldn't tell me if she did with me, lol).

"What I did was your fault somehow"= I'M RIGHT BUT KANT BE BOTHERED TO COME UP WITH A SUPPORTING ARGUMENT SO LIKE FUK U...

lol at the "your sex was wack". i'd rather be told I sucked in bed by a female than be told nothing at all by a gym towel or a sock....

Ballistic, Sunday, 7 March 2010 18:03 (nine years ago) link

"fuck What I did, it was your fault somehow" - this line made me totally hate frankee and decide eamon probably was right for calling her out as a ho. anyway i found this song mildly amusing when it came out, and i'm kinda getting nostalgic for it now. wonder if it's still on my hard drive somewhere? (probably not)
