How can anyone listen to this shit?

Post by Vedius Pollio »

I discovered this band, Owl City, on Something Awful's Garbage Day...

They're horrible. horrible. horrible.

Could someone explain how anyone could like this shit?

It sounds like the theme song for the Teletubbies.

And there's this...

God, I bet the 2010s is going to be a nasty, synthpop-ridden, decade...

I dunno, I kinda like it. It's very... happy.

I like it. It's kinda... mellow. Then again, I don't care much for most popular music and like some music that lots of people hate, so my opinon on music is best taken with a grain of salt.

If anyone cares, my youtube account is http://www.youtube.com/user/xenu4life and maybe 70% of the stuff I have favorited is just music I like.
It is very dark. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

who said synthpop had to be happy
sorry I can't access you-tube (or at least it doesn't work half the time) because of the GFW Fuck China's internet censors

VNV Nation. Synthpop but certainly not happy.

Oh, that's just sugary pop music. Now, why in the Holy Unspoken name of the Flying Spaghetti Monster has Wing Han Tsang ever been allowed near a microphone is really a question for the ages.

Too much of that breathy asthma singing cranked through maximum auto-tune for my liking.

Here's a little song I heard on the radio that I rather liked.

But happy music sucks.

When I'm depressed, I would feel happier listening to something brooding. Like Shostakovich.
