Music...

Postby becky » Sat Mar 24, 2007 11:14 am

Just wondered what music everyone listened to, and is anyone going to any festivals this summer. I am somewhat of a festival junkie!

I like guitar based music, be it folk, pop, rock or metal, from Fairport Convention to Marilyn Manson. I also like some dance music, electronica, trance and ambient sorts of things, and the likes of Royksopp and Sigur Ros. I suppose I like bits of many genres although I'm not at all into urban music as it's not something I can't relate to and it's offensive, both to my ears and often in the language used :D

Festivals aren't something I've ever got into it really. I went to V2001 in Chelmsford but that's about it. I quite fancy going to Cambridge Folk Festival this year if I can make it.

I tend to have a broad range of music spectrum, and the only music I don't like is where you can't hear the words! ie. punk, and house.

I like pick me up songs, from things like MC Hammer, right down to some instumentals,

quite a lot of my music collection though is on the slower side of the spectrum!!

Very similar to myself then Daniel, i love both sigur ros and royskopp. If anyone fancies a trip over to sunny ireland, they should go to electric picnic, its a pure hippy fest that bases itself on glastonbury!!!

I meander through the world of rock and metal (Metallica, Greenday, Disturbed) but my real interest is in film scores. Not soundtracks mind - too often polluted with song-tracks and 'music inspired by the film' - no actually the music composed for the film.

I'm really enjoy listening to scores of Aliens; Silence of The lambs; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; and diverse composers like Danny Elfman, Alan Silvestri, Elliot Goldenthal, John Ottman and many more.


Now give me those rampaging strings...

give me the days of the 80's/early 90's any day, with the odd exception, there was a fair amount of good songs in the charts,

now it seems the charts aren't really influenced by what people buy! it is like the record companies saying oh, we made x amount of copies, and oh look the shop shelfs are empty! (after sending their tea boy down the road with the money to buy them all!!)

what from the 80's and early 90's? I love the cure, the pixies, new order, but i'm also fond of a little vintage kylie and take that. What can i say, my tastes are little skewed the cheesier the better, is what i say. However, it really annoys me that there hasn't been any decent music in so long, i've had enough of the kaiser chiefs and the like. Just because they have guitars doesn't make them good! I never thought id see the day when indie music would become so commericalised. Bring back the days of radiohead and primal scream and blur and pulp!

the ones I hated most were:

that big pink thing, and a song named after him! (Christmas 1994)

"Star Trekkin" the Firm, is so sad it is a joke!!

"The Chicken Song" and "Never Met A Nice South African" both by Spitting Image

I don't think there was anything worse than those. or was it that I missed all the other rubbish songs!!

Shadwell, your list seems to comprise novelty songs, and while some of those are pretty bad, there are many others more worthy of our dislike. Here are a few nominees:

Agadoo - Black Lace
Birdie Song - The Tweets
How about any song that's been sung by any football team ever?
Can we fix it - Bob the Builder
Shaddap your face - Joe Dolce
Save your love - Renee and Renato
There's no one quite like Grandma - Winifreds School Choir

Agadoo - Black Lace: hmm..great for clearing a dance floor at weddings!!
Birdie Song - The Tweets: this wasn't too bad when in infants, so can't really knock it back, as it reminds me of the best years of school life.

How about any song that's been sung by any football team ever? Got 1 good one though! Come On You Reds - Status Quo, which definately can't knock into the running!

Can we fix it - Bob the Builder: yes I think this can go on the list of least desirable songs, so I will agree with you there!!

Shaddap your face - Joe Dolce: this is sort of 50/50 in my book, as it great music, but lousy singing/lyrics!!

Save your love - Renee and Renato: can't quite remember this song, as so long ago since I last heard it, maybe it was so bad I didn't even want to listen again!

There's no one quite like Grandma - Winifreds School Choir: there again, there was Grandad with what's his name Arthur Lowe? out of dad's army, I thought both versions were really bad, so never even went looking to buy either of them.
