It's okay on road trips
I think it's boring, but that's just my opinion.
The only decent radio stations imo usually are the rock stations. A bit repetitive at times, but atleast there's a good amount of variety in songs, and most of those songs are pretty good selections (hell, the 2 rock stations around me play some songs that you rarely hear much anymore or not at all, so that's pretty nifty). Majority of the other stations are really boring, like GWMan said, and is hard to get over how excruciatingly horrid the song choices are.
Thank god for iPods/MP3 players.
Honestly, I don't even care for the rock stations. There's a few decent songs on rock radio, but overall. I just don't like radio.
Oh what do you listen to instead?
Music on YouTube =P
Youtube is much better. I listen to anything I'm in the mood for. Electronic, metal, rap and dubstep/drumstep more recently
Only issue with YouTube is that it does sometimes compress audio quality, so some of the music may sound worse in certain cases but not in others. Other than that, it's a fine platform to go listen to music and chill.
Yeah. Unfortunately youtube compression ruins a lot of audio soundstage and quality.
Then usually I go to soundcloud and surf for some new music in the genres I'm interested in. Bonus being no adverts
10 Pages, YAY =D
I'm so glad that one of my threads has 10 pages worth of posts.
Haha. I wish the more important ones got more than 10 pages tho. Some of them die off cause ppl too scared to comment
Okay then :/
One I found that I like: Lyn Inaizumi.
I don’t so much hate individual songs, artists or bands; but I hate modern trends & phraseology in the music industry in general:
Talk about an overused, twat expression if ever there was one. As if to imply that those two entities alone are the only things that matter in the music industry, and that the people who “ *ONLY* play instruments” can go f-off and kick rocks.
Everyone is “featured” along with everyone else. What a bunch of touchy-feely, pansie-ass collaborative, happy horse shit that is! Must be a young people 2000’s thing because I don’t get it, and I have no idea when that trend first got started; but I hate it beyond belief.
I remember the days when an artist or group/band performed a song and it was “Title” — Artist Album (Year) ... and that was it. None of this feat. crap.
WTF does that really mean anymore? Sounds like title dropping and posturing if you ask me, and I am easily unimpressed.
From what little I saw of the last Grammy Awards, the title apparently means very little now. (“The bling is on display!”, is about the only thought I can conjure up, when I think of the Grammy Awards).
It seems lately no matter who is singing the National Anthem at a ballpark, we have to have this cutesie little token shoved down our throats.
Here’s an idea... just introduce the person by name and have them simply sing the song.
4— “Over-singing the song”
You ever listen to the Star Spangled Banner sung by (usually) a modern R&B recording artist, and it’s like they have to pass up and down through every damn note, in the scale of the key the song is in, instead of just singing the notes in the song itself?!!!
Show-offy, over the top, totally unnecessary, and a waste of an extra 20 seconds I will NEVER get back!
5— “Lack of Extended Instrument Solos in Modern Popular Music”
Everything today is about the singer, their verses, and their choruses. The bridge is about the closest you’ll get to an instrumental solo this day & age, if even at all.
Gone is Ray Manzerik, The Doors, and the 7 minute psychedelic organ solos from the late 60’s. That was when music was good. When there was a place called The Fillmore.
I have as of late turned to jazz and classical music, as those are now the last bastions of civility where the instrumental solo can still be found in its natural habitat.
Lyrics today are too rude, or I can’t relate to what they speak of; yet I also can’t bear to listen to “Stairway to Heaven” or “Hotel California”, again for the millionth time either.
Just a few of my thoughts directed at the industry itself... more than any one particular band. It’ll be interesting to see what other have to say in response to my comments— if anything at all.
Okay then =/
Thanks for the informative post =)
By the way, about point Number 5. I don't think modern pop lovers want to hear long 7+ minute songs like "Light My Fire" by The Doors and I don't think modern pop lovers care for those instrument solos you were talking about. I'm not even sure modern pop lovers could even listen to songs like "Fade In Out", "Be Here Now", "The Girl In The Dirty Shirt", or "Wonderwall" by the britpop band Oasis.
Yes... I've realized this for a long time, but like arguing politics and religion; there's little to no point in trying to convince anyone that "my" music is better than "their's".
Just knowing what I like and don't like, I just try to steer clear of the pop crowd as much as possible. They're the same lot of people that always do their grocery shopping on Saturday and their laundry on Sunday, because it's all they know, and they would never consider changing that up.
Thanks for the wonderful post =)
