Got Me Thinking
It's been a while aaand I'm back~
Advanced apologies if this entry may offend some of you guys.
This question got me thinking all night.
"Why don't I like pop (music genre)?"
I don't have anything against pop music or their artists. Lol, who am I kidding? Justin Gayber and Nicki Minaj top off the list of people I'm gonna sacrifice to Satan. Orrr maybe even Satan would have hell spew them back out? Hm...
Haha, anyway, I was thinking of answers. Here are some that of which I came up with:
1. I find the chart-topper pop music shit because of the influence of my friends. My closest friends all like rock to metal bands and since I am with them on a regular basis (um, duh?), their music taste have made a great impact on me.
2. Another reason is that, when I read the lyrics of some pop songs, it just made me want to barf my non-existent meals to oblivion because the lyrics is just plain shit. I don't know how you people define 'shit' in your own terms, but hopefully you get my point.
3. Maybe it's the fact that 'pop music' is just a label. I wonder how shitty songs get to rank up. Is the music people most listen to represent themselves? Probably. Hmmm, does that mean a lot of people around the world is full of crap? That may be. In one point of view or so, pop music reflect the attitudes of people. Well, if I look at that way, I get disappointed. Hope in humanity is lost. Lol.
4. I probably dislike it because it is sometimes a facade I have to keep up with. Most of my acquaintances are pop-song fans. Some of them are fans of the people I cited above, and I just do not get how the hell they could like them. I couldn't outright sneer at them and tell how retarded their 'idols' are. I can, but I choose not to, for the sake of social courtesy.
Maybe in the end, it comes around to personal reasons. Of course, some won't be able to see the difference between decent and good songs from shit songs, because it's what they see as 'good music'. It's all in the point of view. Probably some psychological factors too.
Some of you may agree with me, some may not. But alas, all these are just my opinions.
All the more reason to love peeps who make real music y'know?
