By now I'm sure you're aware of Charlie Sheen's pathetic breakdown in the media spotlight. I'm fairly certain, as an unqualified nonentity, that he needs some sort of professional help. Still, that hasn't stopped him and his annoying and unfunny 'catchphrases' (and I use that term in the loosest possible sense) from permeating international consciousness. One such phrase is 'Winning', and the catsounds, obviously.
These have led to Snoop Dogg, who has also become somewhat of a parody of himself, to release a single entitled Winning. Imaginative. The principle lyrics of this song are, unsurprisingly 'Winning' repeated in an autotuned hellvoice, intermixed with random and pointless catsounds. The rest of the lyrics concern Snoop telling the listener who he motherfucking is with some pointless swear words, going on and on about winning.
They seem to get a bit sidetracked by talking about how good smoking weed is, needing their fix of tiger blood.
Even aside from the fact that lyrically this song is a completely awful hellish pile of dog excrement, the production on the song sounds like it came from a template out of Garageband. It's definitely not a winning mix (har har har). The rock mix is basically the same song with the synthesizers swapped out for electric guitar.
In summary, don't even bother listening to this song.
