Afroman - Because I Got HighAlready a huge hit in the rest of Europe and the USA, it's now the UK's turn. I don't understand why it's so popular though. Sure, it easily sticks in your head, but it's not a good song. Add to that lyrics about dubious things, and you get a song which doesn't deserve the success it has already received. Thanks to all the hype this will be big in the UK too, but it might not last for long.

It's this kind of rubbish that justifies why Bob The Builder got to No. 1, and this cringe-worthy attempt will probably do just as well. "Because I Got High" is an urban attempt at a novelty song. You might laugh at it during the first listen, but anyone who wants to spend money on this tripe should be ashamed. Come on Britain, don't let us down!
