I LOVE music but...


Recommended Posts

... I am sick of disco and all that happy-dance stuff. I am sick of sugary pop and all those self-esteemed pop stars.

Please don't play me any of those countless

teeny-weenie boy/girl bands because I am fucking grown up!! :mad:

BUT... I also hate rap and I hate death-metal. Nu-metal annoys a hell out of me as well. I am not a big fan of rock'n'roll a'la Rolling Stones either (in fact I hate them too). Elvis Presley IS dead! And honestly, I never liked any blues and/or country.

 

Oh, and every solo in a traditional jazz piece sounds the same.

I am back.

Man, that's a LOT of hate. Have you considered therapy.

 

Oh, and disco? I think you are showing your gray hair, my friend.

 

I used to have this really boss tee shirt that had a skull with a dagger through it and a snake wrapped around the whole thing and it said "Death before disco!." It was cool. That was 1979 and I was 14. I have since grown up to realize that Louis Johnson is the snizzit and "Carwash" has one of the all time best bass lines. Not to mention the opening bars to "Play that funky Music (white boy)" "Hhhhhhhhhheyyyyyyyyyyy! Do it!"

I really don't know what to put here.

LOL! Hey, I was commenting on the hate, not the taste.

I like bluegrass only when it's played by Dixie Dregs! :P

 

But yeah, I hope there is a lot of styles I didn't mention in my "hate 'em" post.

Nah, not yet. I'm still in a bad mood... :freak:

I like jazz, warm nights on the beach, traveling, skateboarding, and men who aren't afraid to cry.

 

My turn-offs include boxing, minivans, men who smoke, hairy backs, and mean people.

Whenever you find that you are on the side of the majority, it is time to reform.

What else would you call those "contemporary" dance tracks? Many of them sound like the same freaking 70's disco with some modern blips added.

you need to run out and buy an album called "Dirt Track Date" but Southern Culture On The Skids.

 

It's a perfect mix of all the things you *haven't* mentioned.

Southern Culture on the Skids are mentioned in the new science-fiction novel "Clade" by Mark Budz. Just saw that tonight, timing always being weird and such.

 

Nice!

 

They are like the most famous unknown band today. I hear their songs popping up in movies and commercials all over the place.

How's that quote go?

"I don't know much about art but I know what I like?"

Or maybe, "I don't like much but I know art."

 

We all have certain likes & dislikes but shouldn't they be born of quality rather than stereotypes?

 

There is no such thing as a genre that's always good is there?

Can there be one that's always bad?

 

Really?

 

Can you distinguish between funk (James Brown, etc., with a varied beat) & disco/techno (unvaried, Kraftwerk-esque beat)?

 

Can you differentiate The Dregs & Kansas?

Can Steve Morse?

 

...but back to the point: let's consider quality & talent over style.

Hey guys, you are too kind. Though sometimes I don't have a clue what are you talking about!

 

d-dmusic: What's "Zydeco"? An artist's name?

 

Super 8: What's "Clesmer"? A band's name?

 

no_talent_Bum: What's a "nap"? A short version of "Napoleon"?

 

arellspencer: Thanks for your kind offer. I listened to some of your tunes on the Net ("Is your music any good?") so I know I'd be glad to investigate your music more closely. Go ahead, send it. And don't forget to let me know YOUR address too! ;)

I am back.

So, platinum members are not human beings anymore?

There is a little troll sleeping inside of everyone of us, I think. Sometimes mine wakes up and says: "Gee... Be grateful I'm not a terrorist."
