I'm a huge sucker for catchy lyrics and a female vocalist too. get me drunk and put on some adele or t swift and you are in for quite a scene
right now i'm in a phase where it seems i only have patience to listen to A) three minutes of pop perfection or B) an hour of avant-jazz blowing. i loose interest with everything in between. no middle ground.
I'll keep an eye out for them. I don't do a whole lot of concerts though.
what would be some fall out boy songs to listen to? Youtube is naturally going to give me the radio singles that I don't like.
Here are a few I like:
"The Patron Saint of Liars and Fakes"
"Tell That Mick He Just Made My List of Things to Do Today"
"Of All the Gin Joints in All the World"
"The Take Over, the Breaks Over"
"Disloyal Order of Water Buffaloes"
"What a Catch, Donnie"
I just picked 2 songs off of each album that weren't singles. It gives you a better idea of how they sound.
If you want catchy and female (plus attractive), I'd say check out Paramore. Or Meg and Dia.
I've actually been to a Paramore and No Doubt concert with my wife It was full of teen twilight fans because apparently they did a song for that. but really, how can you not enjoy a wife-endorsed event where you get to watch haley williams? If I remember correctly, I saw the other band members doing flips and **** off in the peripherals
I mostly listen to old country these days so I'd prescribe you some Tammy Wynette or Dolly Parton.
country is probably the genre where I've found the least examples for my "good music in a genre I don't like" theory there are a few really good ones. Typically they are sort of countryish hybrids. I love good country-rock hybrids and some solid female country ballads. I don't like twang though. Its hard to really describe what I will and won't like. Random song I like: Picture by Kid Rock and Sharyll Crow. If you described the song to me I'd probably expect to hate it. Ok, I got it. Its not twangy. really, I don't mind country but I hate hickish country twang
what the hell kind of music is Mumford and Sons? I freaking love it whatever it is.
“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
Now you're talking my language. I was a late bloomer to country and resisted it fiercely for years. The joke was on me in the end and by the time i was in my twenties it was the perfect complement to some of the more obscure music in my life. Heavy metal will probably always be #1 in my heart though. A live Judas Priest show puts the others to shame.
The truth was that there was no culture worth speaking of, and the people called hipsters just happened to be young and, more often than not, funny-looking.
Like “doochebag,” “hipster” was a name that no one could apply to oneself. But the opportunity to call someone else a “doochebag”: that offered the would-be hipster a means of self-identification by a name one could say, looking outward. In the doochebag, the hipster had found its Other.
by the way, I have no idea if hipsters even exist. I have one friend who seems to hate any popular music. Talks about how they used to be good before they got big and stuff. I know some of that is bands legitimately changing their style causing them to get popular. But its fun to tease anyway.
