What Are Some Musical Groups And/Or Songs That Everybody Liked But You?
The Who (so-so sometimes)
Kiss (although I respect them for other reasons)
And Barry Manilow gives me depression. I swear, the guy just makes lyrics up as he goes along, and he never knows when to end a song.
AIR SUPPLY (freaking Air Supply! Please make them stop.)
I never understood the Go Go's or the Bengals.
Never a fan of Whitney Houston.
Led Zeppelin, Neil Young, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Stones, Peter Frampton----just too many to name.
I have to say I never liked the people that were famous back in the 50's 60's and 70's ..and yet now I love them..go figure..
That's how I feel about 70's disco Snoozy. Wasn't crazy about it then, but now I like listening to it. Maybe it's the memories--you couldn't escape the stuff and it was the unavoidable soundtrack for several years of my life.
Sorry, but I am not going to spell these correctly and frankly, I can't be bothered to look for the correct spelling either.
Sarah McLachlin-- the very thought of her whiny voice and her overly serious face makes me want to stick my finger down my throat.
Evanesence -- the girl lead singer, she sounds like someone is pulling her nails out of their beds with pliars. Listening to her makes me feel like someone is driving shards of glass into my ears and eyes. And people tell me, oh so reverently, "But she is supposed to sound like she is in pain." All that makes me want to do is lock them in a room with the catalogs of The Beatles, Rolling Stones, CSN&Y, Led Zeppelin, Cat Stevens, Carol King, James Taylor... you know? Good, actual music.
Christina Aguilera-- can somebody please play Sandy Shaw for her or Lulu and show her how vibrato is supposed to be used sparingly. And please, can Linda Ronstadt show her how sexy should come as a natural vibe and appeal and then show her how subtlety in sexy dressing and makeup is far more powerful than dressing like she charges $15 for a .......
I didn't like KISS at the time they were popular. They looked so silly after guys like Robert Plant and Jimmy Page. I could not take their music seriously, as I was brought up on the best. But now, well I like their music better. They took off their make up and my mind opened up more.
Hey, Miss Aguilera and even Mariah Carey, check out the Sandy Shaw video above and listen to Lulu. This is how vibrato is done.
I do like Mariah Carey. I do think some of her early stuff sounds like she needs a gentle laxative though.
Leif Garrett. ew
KISS, U2, Lady Gag Gag, any boy band, any band of dancers that sing and do acrobatic dancing at the same time like Britney Spears, almost all rap, Nikki Minaj, all male singers that sound like Dave Mathews or Coldplay, all female singers that sing like Cat Power or Sarah McLaughlin, Katy Perry cuz she ripped off "I Kissed a Girl" blatantly from an early 90s song, Michael Jackson, all the Jacksons, Prince, all Banda music (the most popular music in so cal hands down) plus a ton more, but those are the main ones
Neil Young - he can't sing, his guitar playing is amateurish and his lyrics only so-so.
Okay, his voice is not for everyone. But and it's a BIG BUT, I think I'll laugh myself off my chair over this guitar remark. He's actually one of the better guitar players on the planet. You may not like his music, but honey, you must not understand what a skilled guitar player sounds like. His lyrics, especially on his first album called Neil Young and Harvest, read them, they stand on their own as good poetry, excellent really:
Have you tried to learn to play this song? It may sound simple, but it's not!
Go to 2:08--
Start watching and listening at 1:58 and keep watching and listening right on through. I'd like to see and hear you play this well. And if you can technically, then I don't think you can do it with this kind of soul. And if you can, then can I please have you over for dinner and listen to you play? And by the way, he actually is very uniquely handsome here. We girls don't always love the pretty boys like Brad Pitt.
