Subby, my ears started bleeding after 15 seconds. I am going to forward you the bill from my audiologist.

Lately, that "shine bright like a diamond" song has been getting on mah nerves...I hear it in just about every store I've been in lately. Yuck. That girl's voice is irritating.

Only dogs would regard this sonic assault as "spiffy".

Why in the name of all that is reasoned and right would I want to click that link?  The headline might as well read "Ram this ice pick into your ear".

Even though I am in the "over 40" age demographic, I still keep up with current music.  I never want to be one of those "old guys" sitting around telling the kids that music in our day was so much better.

Trust me, we had as much vapid meaningless bubblegum pop in the '70s and '80s as we do today.

Or you could just play "Call Me Maybe" for eight minutes with your head dangerously close to the speakers.

Funny you should mention that: That very song that drove me away from my local arcade this year.

Was 'Friday' this year or last year?
 
2012-12-30 01:01:43 PM
Have you been living under a musical rock this year?

Well, apparently I have. I recognized four or five songs from that video.
A quick glance at my iTunes play counts shows Tom Waits, Tiger Lillies, and assorted metal like Purified in Blood and Elitist in my top charts.

/Got a $40 itunes giftcard for Xmas
//Gonna get more METAL!

Yeah, not really my speed, but it's good to know what's big. Some parts were pretty damn catchy.

Each of these songs displays genius of a sort - and for further review on that perspective, read The Manual.

This -- all of this.  I'm 49 and enjoyed this mashup quite a bit.  But then, I'm not a wanna-be hipster, talking about how popular things are terrible all the time.

Thanks, man. I don't mind online gaming, but I'm old school-nothing like the electricity of a face to face confrontation, with your mates cheering you on, ya know? AWESOME MK, Killer Instinct 1 & 2, SFII, SFIII: Second Impact and SFIII: Third Strike tourneys. *Sigh* Those were the days.

Yup, pretty much this. There were a good number of songs I liked from this year, some I didn't like much and none that I would spend any energy hating. Good mix.
 
2012-12-30 01:47:28 PM
Found a couple songs annoying.. only because of way over playing... but rather enjoyed it...

It was a really great mix of a bunch of songs that I might find annoying if I listened to for longer than 20 seconds each... Masterfully put together.

But listening to all of them mesh seamlessly had me thinking of THIS the entire time
 
2012-12-30 02:43:24 PM
I was Dj'ing to a huge room of half-drunk architectural students last night. I wish I'd seen this video yesterday; I could have dropped that in and taken a smoke break, on top of getting all that dumb shiat out of the way.

/though I will admit to really liking the Ellie Goulding track
 
2012-12-30 03:14:55 PM
Ok, granted, most of those songs are awful, formulaic drivel... but whoever created that vid has some serious mashup chops. It was really well done for what it was.

Shrapnel: /though I will admit to really liking the Ellie Goulding track


The Ellie Goulding song is decent, and her label let a bunch of people remix it with good results. The song that I currently hate as an example of hackneyed songwriting and soulless arranging is the "A-Team" song. It's a sensitive ballad about a coke-head with social phobia, near as I can tell, and the repetitious hook is ground into your brain with maximum sensitive-male vocal fry. Plus, the songwriter decided to throw "crumbling like pastry" in as a significant-detail rhyme. Total bullshiat.
 
2012-12-30 05:11:14 PM
I see that goddamn "Domino" song made the list. GGAAAAAHHHHH

Even if you hate the songs, the mash-up "artist" is pretty talented.
 
2012-12-30 05:36:23 PM
Here's one that DJEarworm did. Its shorter and tries to make a cohesive song out of the mashup bits.

(His 2009 one was better and is the best mashup I've ever seen http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iNzrwh2Z2hQ)

I hate to admit it, but I really love "Some Nights" by Fun. The drums get me every freaking time.

Also - Chris Brown has a face that's just begging to be punched. He looks like such a twat.

I didn't even bother to listen to shiatty pop music when I was a teenager. Why the hell would I be stupid enough to start now that I should be old enough to know better?

In other pop-music related news, Youtube recently (about a fortnight ago) screwed their charts system up even further. There are no longer month and day options, and also no options for searching by top favourited, top liked etc.

I was hoping they would add, not take away options. I would really have liked to have a fully-fleshed out charts search option, so you could see what were the top favourited Rock videos for, say, 18-28 yo males in Argentina from Jan-Feb 2008, for example.

Why does a google product have such terrible, terrible search functionality?

I couldn't agree with you more. DJ Earworm's 2009 mashup is sheer brilliance.

LewDux: oi45.tinypic.com


The chart page allows you to search by category, and used to allow searches by "top favourited" and "top liked", which produced very different results from most viewed. Also, it doesn't let you search between date x and date y (i.e. two particular weeks two years ago).

Why can't they do this? The company's business is search -- I'm really curious why they're so bad at it.

/oh wait, do they sell it as an 'analytics' product?
 
2012-12-30 08:03:50 PM
I've heard maybe a total of 1/10 of those songs.

I must be doing something right.

It's short for "popular."  Very confusing.  I understand.


The terms popular music and pop music are often used interchangeably, even though the former is a description of music which is popular (and can include any style), whilst the latter is a specific genre containing qualities of mass appeal.

As a genre, pop music is very eclectic, often borrowing elements from other styles including urban, dance, rock, Latin and country; nonetheless, there are core elements which define pop. Such include generally short-to-medium length songs, written in a basic format (often the verse-chorus structure), as well as the common employment of repeated choruses, melodic tunes, and catchy hooks.

STRYPERSWINE: I like to hear impressive music played by good musicians. These people can't even sing or play an instrument.


Adele played guitar, bass, piano and celestion organ on her album "19." Adam Levine can play piano, drums and guitar. Gotye played every instrument on "Making Mirrors" except bass.

Adele, Katy Perry, Adam Levine, and Gotye I've heard sing unaltered and incredibly well.

There were a lot more musicians in that mashup that I can't say that about either through omission or I have heard them try to sing or play and had the same impression that you did.

I'm not a huge fan overall of this year's crop of musical offerings, but I do have respect for those folks who actually do possess musical talent and can actually perform worth a damn when not wrapped in the shroud of auto tune and midi synthesizers. Perky boobs and a nice ass will get your career started, but if you lack the musical chops to entertain people without the consistent use of auto tune, lip synch or other such trickery, your "sell by" date is sooner than you think.

My other rule of thumb, with perhaps one or two exceptions, is to typically shun any artist who feels it is of critical importance to drop their name (and the name of collaborating artists) in the lyrics or as a auto-tuned leader in their songs. If you are the cat's own ass as a musician, the listener should know who you are without you having to outright remind us. Let your work speak for itself and stop jerking off.

In short, all I ask is that you have natural talent, don't name drop yourself in your lyrics and don't be a douchebag to your fans. Having nice boobs and ass is a bonus, but don't assume that'll lead to a long career.
