This’ll be a short one today.
So basically me and my ‘Friend’ - who is now in question of being a ‘Friend’ - were having a talk about today’s snooze fest called music. Now, my friend here is a huge metal head.
I know what you’re thinking, but don’t worry about it. Complaining about Metal heads will be for another post on another day.
Back to the story, he said a bunch of pretty stupid stuff. Like:
"Taylor Swift can’t compare to Slayer."
"All the people who listen to pop have no soul or depth. It’s just repeated four chords bullshit - along with repetitive choruses."
"Justin Bieber is a retarded lesbian who can never beat REAL music like the stuff I listen to!"
A. The reason why Taylor Swift can’t compare to Slayer is because they are in a completely different ballpark. They are in different genres. It’s like saying “Well, I think Golf can’t compare to getting a terminal disease.”
B. Well, i’m not defending pop music or anything (Because trust me, I loathe it), but all songs from any genre has to have a formula. Sure it can be repetitive, but I bet if you play your favorite song next to another song you know of you can start to see a similarity.
C. The first half I completely agree with, but what defines ‘Real Music’? If you ask me, all music is ‘Real Music’ no matter how horribly un-listenable it is. Well, there are some exceptions, but still: Just because you like a genre, doesn’t mean it’s immediately better than everything else.
Normally, I would be raging. But eh, what the hell. It’s Tuesday - I’m still recovering from Monday. So screw you all and have a putrid night.
