"Modern" Music
Current mood: rockin
Category: Music

I get picked on sometimes for having what can charitably be called "dated" muscal tastes  Is it really so strange that I like my guitars crunchy, vocalists signing out, and bridges neoclassical?  No!  But sometimes I wonder if I might be completely missing any pop culture references dated later than 1992.

So I've taken the time to stop and check out the current top hits (from the  Billboard top ten singles).  Let's look at a few of these artists...

DeLyn - Waiting.  Ok, even if I can get past the pretentious CaMelCasE single-word name (which I can't), the track is an uninspired vocal laid over a basic drum track.  It sounds like a teenager discovering his or her first digital effects box and drum machine, circa 1982.  But even Debbie Gibson's first demo tape was better than this.

Carney - Nothing Without You.  Somewhere a carnival is missing its ride technicians, the guys with the "stringy drifter's build".  They've been found, engaging in chord porn, behind gutless drawn out moaned and mumbly vocals.

Anna Nalick - Shine.  First off, there's more image results for her than links to anything about the music.  I don't _want_ to know what musicians look like!  But it's fine in this case - for all the lauds of her supposedly clever songwriting, the literary types writing these reviews neglect to notice that no one bothered to come up with a *melody* that she could fit all the words into.

Madonna feat. Justin Timberlake.  Don't even get me started....

And so, even after noting that Neil Diamond has the number one album, by a large margin, I'm not interested in plugging back in to pop music just yet. 

Tonight I ordered a couple Jethro Tull albums.  Let me know when some current band exhales the next Locomotive Breath!
