Saturday Morning YouTube Potpourri

I admittedly am one of those people that when I hear a song I like, I listen to it over and over and beat it into the ground. I'm finding out this morning that I also do the same thing when I hear a song I despise. The following song is so awful, but I can't stop listening to it, even though I know for a fact that my brain is bleeding.

Those were the Smokies Ladies, a few young women that support the Tennessee Smokies Double-A baseball club, and there are a few reasons why this terrible video is so awesome. First, the singing is beyond dreadful, and I love the comment posted by a Deadspin reader about how "at least the young Double-A hitters aren't the only ones in the stadium who can't find a pitch". Second, the three chicks have no problem butchering the entire song, but then there is one part where they kept Beyonce's vocals in because they knew they couldn't match her range. Third, this is the affiliate of the Chicago Cubs! I can't wait until some of these players make it to the bigs and then they have to live this video down. Even though they had probably nothing to do with it, it's bad enough to give them a little hell for.

But give the ladies credit, they tried their hardest, and in the minors that's really all you can ask for. (And they're not bad looking either. Well, except for you #27).
