UFGN is on point here.

If you're just into catchy jingles, just be honest and say that you're not really into music, that you just like something in the background while you wash the dishes. It's fine, there's nothing wrong with that. But also... stay away from me.

What a load of rubbish! :lol:

People listen to all sorts of music. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean it's no good.


Its got to have a soul. Theres nothing there

Theres only one thing you need to know about Chris Martin. Out of all the rock n roll greats he could choose from, do you know who he sees as a roll model? Someone to emulate?

Jagger maybe? Lennon? Hendrix? Gilmour? Bowie?

No.

Jon Bon actual Jovi :doh:

And if you still dont see the problem after that, youre part of the problem!!


He's a businessman first and foremost. JBJ is 35 years past their commercial peak and still releasing albums, touring and raking in cash. All of their members are alive, drug free and scandal free. The definition of polished corporate soft rock.

Coldplay's first album was indebted to Radiohead. Decent music but nothing to sell out a stadium to. Every album since then has diluted the formula more and more until 2008 when they went full on mom rock.

In the 2020s they'll probably syarys releasing Christmas albums exclusively, or whatever geriatrics listen to before they croak.

This guy gets it. Youre right about the first album as well

What kind of rap have you been listening to? :grin:

Rap is such a huge genre that it's a disservice to pigeonhole it into either dumb lyrics or gangsta rap. It's like someone saying they hate fantasy novels because Twilight is targeted at preteen girls.

There's hick-hop (country rap), 35-year-old single white mom rap (Drake), political rap, rappers who tell stories through their bars, absolute bangers (party anthems), mellow stuff for when you're kicking back, and so much more.

Christmas music is a dark, dark place for me. Im like a fatty scoffing cheeseburgers and crying afterwards. I know its wrong but I still do it.

I draw the absolute f***ing line at Cliff Richard's Christmas atrocities though. That c*** is one of the worst musical criminals of all time

Rap is a genre I dont have much interest in but I dont dismiss it out of hand. Some of those guys are very talented writers

Mate I'd rather listen to barry manilow now that is a huge statement it's a kind of heat the razor blades statement lol.
I understand what you are saying I just can not do it for anymore than a couple tracks at a time.
Hendrix has always been my default setting for music

And that's completely fair. Different strokes for different folks and all that. I'm not chastising you for not liking it, just making sure others reading know there are numerous subgenres.

Now, Jimmy is someone we can agree on. Shame he died so young :(

I respect it, but I feel like that's music you play at a funeral.

I was really waiting for the break beat, and the tempo to jump up and then dancers come out and start twerking! :1990_dancing.gif:

Anyone who enjoys classical music and lives in London, you should go to the proms.
~60 concerts a year by world class orchestras at the Albert Hall. Its not expensive

In the spirit of the seasonal tidings ............

What's everyones favourite Xmas song?

Without putting too much thought into it I'd propbably say The Pogues - Fairy tale of Newyork.

George Michaels - Last Christmas .......... although a big slice of 80's cheese, def gets you feeling nostalgic as I've probably heard it every Christmas of my life since I can remember.
