Stupid Repetitive Songs

January 15th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

I was listening to the radio this morning in the car, and I realized: there are a ton of really catchy songs out there that are really missed the boat.  I listened to the first 30 seconds of a song that was really good.  Then the second 30 seconds repeated the first.  And the third.  And the fourth.  By the end of the song I was totally turned off.

Is it just me, or is that happening more than it used to?  Very few of the older rock songs don’t do that.  I might suspect that it’s just because I only know the good music from the previous decades, but the fact is that I can’t think of any recent songs that don’t repeat themselves.  Where is the story telling?  I miss it.

    Aren’t you a bit young for a “kids these days” post?

    You’re never too young to start. 🙂

    I’ve heard a lot of music from a lot of different time periods, and the drivel they put out now is just so condescending. It’s like they spent 20 minutes in the studio, couldn’t do anything worthwhile, and then just said, “Aw, forget it… we’ll just fix it in post.” But maybe that’s just pop.

    You listen to the wrong radio stations. Try 1340 AM.
