Ohh .. you judged my musical taste by just such a list. This is incredible.
Admittedly I don't know much about music, i've posted this historically but i've listened to a lot of top 40 music and I really just don't understand it. And I don't mean that I can't comprehend the music, I mean I don't understand the appeal and as to why people listen to it. While every once in a while something good will come on that I can get into (Adele, Kanye, Florence etc...) the vast majority of whats played is so horrible that it's baffling (here i'm referring to music like LMFAO, Bruno Mars, One Republic, Black Eyed Peas, Pitbull etc...) this music isn't hip hop, nor is it dance nor is it pop or rock music- it's some sort of incomprehensibly indistinguishable genre of music that is just flat out banal. It's so derived and uninspired that I really cannot appreciate it on any level. I can't help but to think that they're writing music specifically for degenerates who only appreciate music to the extent that it's the noise they listen to while they get drunk and dance (there's no problem with this in terms of partying and having fun but I cannot
appreciate this music from an artistic stand point). Other stuff in the top 40 I can actually listen to their material on an artistic level, but this shit being released by hacks like LMFAO is ridiculous to me.
I know I probably sound like Bruce here but understand that the only reason I hold this sentiment is because I genuinely believe that if people actually liked music, even in the most simplistic sense, they should
have an insatiable attitude towards music instead of listening to what's being handed to them by the clubs and record companies. This is why I can't applaud people who listen to top 40 music and consider themselves true music fans.
