I got permission to do this. :shifty:


Since Jan 1st I am listening to my entire music collection in order.

I also listened to the entire Beatles albums that Project sent me. I think I like the earlier stuff better.

How far into the Beatles are you? Because The White Album and Abbey Road are mind-blowingly awesome and make the early stuff sound like cheap pop.

I listen to it all.

I think I need to not listen to so much at once. It runs together.

Listened to "Hot N Cold" Planet-man mentioned. I still prefer "I kissed a girl" I really don't like the techno type drum beat in Hot N Cold. That makes me really not like the song. It might just be me but I can not be doing with the following music types : Techno/hardcore/club , Hip-hop , Rap. There are some exceptions to the rule e.g I like the Mortal Kombat theme (in small doses, couldn't listen to it twice in a day)

Am I the only one hooked on Katy Perry's "I kissed a girl" ? It's catchy as hell but still my pride won't let me sing it out loud

Yeah, heaven forbid anyone might think you enjoy kissing girls.

Not just you. I hate all that stuff with a passion. And also drum'n'bass. I mean, I like drums, I like bass, as long as we have the rest of a band in there as well. It might just be me, I am a die hard metalhead through and through. I can do with a little bit of pop or cheesey stuff if I am in the right mood and cheesey pop-rap like Boom Shake the Room, but as soon as it gets serious and the rapper wanting to "get all up in his shizzle" and bust a cap in his homeboy and the like, then I get bored.

I remember when I was once pretty dismissive of what I thought of as "dance" music. The real shift happened when I simultaneously discovered the joys of both Talking Heads' "Remain In Light" and LCD Soundsystem and realized that music can be incredibly intelligent and sweet for dancing to.

If you think about it, besides the variety provided by the internet, the thing that this decade will be remembered for musically is the full-scale embracing of dance music. It's pretty much consumed popular music and it's starting to feel like every indie band is making either nostalgic folk music or dancey electropop. I for one am not opposed. Especially when it results in stuff like this, this, and this.

Though I have identified it all as a conspiracy to humiliate white people by forcing them to dance.

No but considering some lyrics are stuff like "hope my boyfriend don't mind it" I will not be singing it out loud anytime soon :lol:

Or when they ruin perfectly good songs by making them club songs. E.g Any of the crazy frog songs.

This reminds me: a few nights ago I found myself browsing random pages on Wikipedia and started reading about different genres of electronic music. I ended up on the page for "speedcore techno" and, long story short, this **** is insane:

I don't think I get it. I can't even imagine how people would dance to that. I don't think my body is capable of moving that fast.

I love techno/trance music, but the supply of it that I actually think is good is quite limited. And I only like the upbeat stuff.

I can't stand trance. It's so obnoxious that it makes me want to kill people.

I do like some stuff by Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers, but I can't stand the genre as a whole.

I hate Journey.

Nobody likes Journey. Even Steve Perry hates Journey. Not that his musical taste should count for anything, but you get my point, I'm sure.
