I came to inquire if that was someone's cousin, but I see that that was already confirmed.

She can play and sing- the content wasn't all the interesting to me

And, I don't think she is going to become a Pop sensation (this is probably in her best interest anyway)

Also, do we all now have license to promote friends and family?
I know a lot of people who are really talented. None of them are bound for pop stardom either, but they could use the promotion.

In all honesty, I didn't even listen to it. Is it really Jesus rock? If so, then SumoJeb just aggrieved us that much more.

Meh. most Farkers are too stupid to know who Mary Magdalene is. Present company included, Shadowknight.


Mary Magdalene was Jesus' wife.

She's talented enough, but I'd hardly call this pop. It's Jesus music, and will only play to a Jesus market.

Tatsuma: WorLord: As for you finding the song boring, that's a problem with you and not with the song.


It had all the excitement and emotional impact as elevator music. Not liking that, I grant, is my "problem," just as thinking its the bees' knees is yours.


But the lyrics are far from 'trite'. It's both a love song and a crushing indictment against an absolutely emotionally unavailable lover who cares more about distractions than her.

That you can't see the inherent contradiction between your first and second sentences here is your problem, not mine. That subject matter is the very *definition* of "trite"; that's practically the subject matter of almost every radio-friendly song singe the dawn of radio.

And, yes, I'm factoring in the dual-nature of the song.

This is not a situation where I simply do not understand the full reality of what is going on; I assure, you, I get it - I just disagree that it is anywhere near mind-blowing, original, catchy, moving, or otherwise standout-ish. Tis just a *lot* more of the same, it's like every girl-and-her-guitar song from the past 20 years put into a blender and served up Frappe style with no percussion.


Just check out Kinda Outta Luck for something completely different

I'll do that, but can't do it right this second...

WorLord: Tatsuma: Lana Del Rey - Video Games - Song of the year, one of the best in the decade.

The assessment above applies to this, as well. She may be hot as Central Texas, but the song is boring, the lyrics trite, and I have rarely heard anyone sound as bored singing their own material.

I am glad you like it - she *does* have a nice voice - but I have *no idea* how this could be the best song of the month, much less decade.


This. Someone took a middling song, slapped a Winehouse 60's echo filter on it and filmed a video that somehow makes a fairly attractive woman look like she just got punched in the upper lip (which may be a harelip, I don't know). Overall it's a pretty good song, but hardly song of the year or decade. Maybe song of the week if she gets naked in her next video, but I'm not holding my breath.

I guess what you're getting at is it's all been done before.

While I would like to stick to the usual Fark sentiment and disagree with you, I'm afraid that I would actually have to agree with you.

In my humble opinion, music hit its crest during the 90's and has been steadily declining ever since. Pretty much all the music I listen to comes from the 90's on back to the 50's and 60's. Alternative music was the high water mark as far as original music went. Sure, a lot of it was mainstream pop but you had a lot of bands that held true to what made them unique.

Today's music is a different story. I thoroughly despise hip-hop and rap music. It's not because of the way it sounds. I think it sounds okay. Not exactly my cup of tea but to each their own. The reason why I despise it is because there isn't a single artist in that genre that isn't trying to mimic another artist from that same genre. Same goes with pop music. There's nothing original anymore.

It's all been done before.

Yeah you have no idea what you are talking about. There are just as many artists in that world who try to be original and produce fresh material as there are artists and bands only copying others in other genre.

cause we all know one.. seriously.. a female singer/guitar-player on youtube is very common, and most of them are decent. i give her and the rest props, but it's not something fark-worthy, an I'm honestly annoyed at all the links to these web-cam musicians just because it's an acquaintance of someone and thus must be pushed on everyone else.. especially when they claim that this one is new or fresh for some reason, and they really aren't

EducatedBum: In my humble opinion, music hit its crest during the 90's and has been steadily declining ever since.


I don't know about that; I think more than a fair amount of that opinion is shaped by age.

The way I remember it, the crest you speak of took place in the early/mid '80s. Let's just say '85.

By the late '80s I was getting bored, and the '90s... well I spent all of the '90s thinking I was way too young (and missing the requisite wife and 2.5 kids) to be of the opinion that everything on the radio sounded that bad, that consistently.

I bet I'm about 10 years older than you.

Then again, if "originality" is your only (or main) watermark of quality, you shouldn't be listening to the radio or big-label music anyway. That sort of music is meant to sell, needs to make a return on the record label's investment, and rarely is something even a little bit original (hence, risky) a bankable sell. This is especially true thanks to everything that's happened since Napster.

Show me an artist (underground or otherwise) that has a "fresh" style and you will shock the hell out of me.

And yes, pull you're farking pants up. You seriously still think it's cool to have your ass hanging out of your jeans? Easy access I would guess but if you're old enough, we have bars for that kind of stuff (if you pick up what I'm putting down). If you're not 21 though, there are still plenty of places to meet up with like-minded people.

You're right, age is a major factor in an individual's musical interests. I've always considered myself an eclectic though. I can go from Pink Floyd to Metallica back to Simon and Garfunkel to a little Moody Blues and then spring forward to The Misfits and then fall back on some Elvis. I just might even turn on some Broadway tunes like Rent or Jekyll and Hyde.

Music's evolution is a very diverse and strange thing and everyone has their own opinion on where the "crest" lies. Of course my opinion of where the crest lies is the 90's because that's the music I grew up with. But like I said, I'm an eclectic. I don't limit myself to just 90's alternative and grunge/punk, I listen to everything (that sounds good). But when I look back on music from the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's and then look at modern music, the music that I grew up with just seems like the height of what original music can be. Everything after just seems like mass produced garbage.

Of course I also grew up in the time of Napster too, so I would have to agree that record companies have become a little more strict on their definition of marketable music. Stick with what works. Maybe that's why every artist sounds the same now. Sad really. Is it Napster's fault? I don't think so. It's the music industry's inability to adapt to a changing market. They don't see music for what it really is anymore. They only see it as a commercial product.

I'm 24 years old and already I'm a stick in the mud. I never go to clubs because of the crap they play, I only go to one bar in my neighborhood because they rarely play any music at all and establishing a relationship with someone as like-minded as me is well, pretty damn difficult. I guess my standards are too high. I guess my views on music, politics and life are just too strict. I guess I'm getting older.

I'm also very drunk and rambling so I'll leave those who actually have read this far these parting words:

"If music be the food of love, play on" - William Shakespeare.
