One of the most infuriating things about living right outside of D.C. was that when they played Good Life on the radio, they changed all of the lyrics that said ‘New York’ to ‘Washington.’
Maybe it’s just an overplayed, annoying pop song, (that I sometimes like to listen to when I’m in the mood for overplayed, annoying pop songs) but honestly, “to my friends in Washington, I say Hello?” Um, no. First of all, that is not the same amount of syllables. Second of all, nobody has friends that live in Washington. And Third of all, never diss New York like that in front of me again. Who do you think you are, D.C.? There’s a reason that the original lyrics are the way they are and it’s because New York is better than you.
