Hmm true, but India gave us the number 0 which is equal to the number of awesome characters in Twilight. I keed, I keed. I quite like Jasper, tbh. But that's about it.I'd just like to point out something. America brought us Twilight. England brought us Harry Potter.
Don't forget shallow. It's all about drugs, sex, getting pissed....I hate popular music. Anyway...the popular music is consistently emotionless garbage
A miscommunication on my side. What I mean is "pop music," which is recognized as a distinct style of songwriting. I call it "popular music" simply because that's the long-form, but it is partially outdated and incorrect, and I can understand why you took it that way. Sorry about that."I hate popular music"? Could you make a more generalised statement? What counts as "popular"?
I sense you wouldn't have said this had I been more clear. There are of course exceptions to the rule of pop music; for example, Savage Garden is a fantastic pop act. To answer your question, I like the Killers' first album and about half of their b-sides collection, but after that I think their songwriting really took a nose dive. As for Rihanna, she has a great voice but her songs are never up to the task of supporting it.And how can everything popular be awful when popular music ranges so much? Do you hate both Rihanna and The Killers, because they're both popular but very different music.
Please do not assume I listen to the music I do because I want to appear different. I listen to it because I enjoy it.And so what do you listen to that's not popular. You're trying to make yourself seem edgy by listening to music that other people don't, and you're failing miserably.
I partially disagree here, even though this comment wasn't aimed at me. Pop music does deal a lot with those topics because they are aimed at teens. However, in my earlier teenage years, I wasn't listening to songs about those topics because I simply wasn't interested in sex or drugs. Music like that didn't speak to me, so I often sided with punk rock about politics or alternative/"art" rock about stress or worry. So, what you said is too broad to be taken as completely true.And of course they're about sex and drugs, they're mostly aimed at teens and that's what their lives are about.
The Cure are pretty good; as I've grown up, I've appreciated them more. What makes their songs about sex more interesting to listen to than pop songs about sex is their sonic depth. The Cure specialize in creating a layered, textured sound that sucks you in. Pop music very rarely has that same immersion factor.Have you ever listened to The Cure? They're not "popular" as such (though "popular" is a term I hate) but they're still about that.
