lulz. In all seriousness, it's an extremely good song for what it is (catchy pop music that revels in its own vapidness). I appreciate unpretentious shit like that, even if my explanation for liking it is pretentious as fuck.

I don't know if I'm just a bitter old man who's really out of the loop and ignorant (could very well be the case), but it's been a really long time since I've heard silly pop music like this that actually has this kind of personality without going as over the top as other huge acts.

Queen are fantastic. I don't know if this is why you brought them up, but every time someone mentions Mika I think of a poor man's Freddy Mercury.

But yeah, everything about Queen is amazing.

dexternumbers, I don't know what your idea of 'real music' and 'not real music' is. But if your 'real music' has anything to do with talent, creativity, originality, skill, or well listenability, you're dead wrong about Social D.

wheelchairman
12-18-2009, 02:14 PM
I like Mika a lot. I would imagine the similarity lies in that Mika relates a lot to Freddy Mercury, both growing up in former British colonies in the far or middle east. The styles are similar, and I think everyone connects Big Girl You are Beautiful to Fat-Bottom Girls. Which seems like an obvious tribute. But Queen is still better. There's something near magical about Freddy Mercury's voice.

WebDudette
12-18-2009, 02:18 PM
I do like Mika, Lollipop is an insanely catchy song. Though, I associated him with Freddy Mercury before I'd even listened to Big Girls, and the song where he actually references trying to be like Freddy Mercury.

Hmm. I listen almost exclusively to top 40, and See You Again is easily my favorite pop song of the last four or five years. Party in the USA is one that I despise, partly because I probably never gave it much chance, partly because
the chorus is the only part I find catchy/listenable, but mostly on principle...some of the lyrics.

However I now realize that I never truly appreciated Mambo No. 5 the way I should've.

I did. I didn't become a rebellious wannabe anti poser punk until way late, so I was big into it in '99. What a ridiculous song, but it's a jam. They played it between Sum 41 and Offspring at the last concert I went to. Apparently, the words are hard to forget.

I was introduced to this song about a month ago, and i was pretty much impressed by 'nodding my head like yeah moving my hips like yeah' not even joking. It's such a catchy fun line but i can't imagine putting it on paper and thinking anyone could not laugh at it. I don't particularly like the song, though. Not cause it's pop, but there's just nothing special about it. All i need is some pink and rihanna and i'm good to go.

this is the noble truth. It makes me sad how i. Love. Every one of rihanna's singles, but everything else on her albums is trash. Pink is much more consistent. But dude... Sos, shut up and drive, unfaithful, disturbia, breaking dishes... That's some straight up catchy pop.

"bam bam - bidam - bam bam - bidam bam" is the only real catchy part of Disturbia. Here's the universal cure (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMU2NwaaXEA) for any time when you have a song stuck in your head and you want to get rid of it. It has a side effect, however.

This thread made me listen to that song and I have to say it's really catchy. I don't like "Party in the USA" though.

Oh, and I used to like Rihanna. Pon de Replay, Shut Up and Drive, Don't Stop the Music, Disturbia, Take a Bow are all decent songs.



I was wondering how long it would take 'til Lady Gaga was brought up. It's funny, I like everything about her except her songs.

Well, I like everything about Lady GaGa including some of her songs: Just Dance, Paparazzi, (notice how I intentionally skip Poker Face), The Fame, Bad Romance, did I mention The Fame? But I can't stand LoveGame. I just can't.

I thought her M!ssundaztood album was good. And everything after was generally alright. I always liked that she was a successful female artist without having to churn out a typically safe style of music for women. If you know what I mean. Other than her first album, I felt she was really just doing whatever she wanted to do without worrying too much about what she was "supposed" to do. And that seemed pretty rare amongst successful mainstream female acts at the time.

I disagree wholeheartedly. Pink, in both her music and interviews, has a personality equivalent to that annoying girl in high school who claimed to be a part of anything that she thought wasn't mainstream, but really obviously was (a practicing Goth buddhist pescetarian who is obsessed with David Bowie but is also down with anything else you like [omg I LOVE Guns & Roses! omg I LOVE Star Wars!] because hey, she's just that cool, could be one, or a number of examples). There's nothing about her music that hadn't been done before (often and better), which would be just fine if her persona wasn't built up to shatter that idea. It's a kind of in your face dishonesty that I'm relieved is missing from other simpler pop acts.

I thought that sort of in your face dishonesty was part of the fun of superstar pop acts. Like Lady Gaga. Who shows up to Heathrow in a thong, as though she just mysteriously forgot to put on her pants that morning? I don't think this sort of pageantry is inherent to all pop music, but I don't think it's a reason to condemn those that engage in it.

JohnnyNemesis
12-22-2009, 09:11 AM
^Nah, not for me. I'll still dig a good tune if a good tune is a good tune, but that in your face dishonesty is rarely ever pulled off well, it's usually just really boring and REALLY annoying cause it aint subtle. That's partly why I dig the Miley Cyrus song I started this thread about; it's straightforward. I put Lady Gaga in a slightly different category mostly because she revels in being fake, I can sorta fuck wit' that I think. But being fake as hell while promoted/presented as being way too real to be understood...that's just nauseating.

I guess I'm saying I don't condemn those acts for engaging in that over the top pageantry, I condemn them when they do such a shitty job of it.

I've actually liked a couple Pink songs, despite the fact that her image kind of irks me. The same with Avril Lavigne for that matter, though her whole punk-rock/songwriter image seems to have been downplayed the last couple years.

I really agree with sarah here. Loves to pib, but always thought it naive to think any pop star ever 'did what they want' and didn't try to fit some mold. Pink's old persona of 'omg i'm so real and hardcore and misunderstood and awesome and sad and lonely' was fucking lame as hell. But she's steered away from that image the last two albums, and i've never really been concerned with the images of pop stars. With pink, i truly dig her raspy alto voice, and i actually just love a lot of her songs. Plus she does most of the writing herself, which earns points in the pop world- and some of her lyrics are pretty decent. She has some less unabashed pop songs that are really well written. But i also can't help but love shit like sober, god is a dj, you and your hand, and stupid girls... :)

Had this cover band, and we covered Sober. But that band didn't last. I quit because that guy I thought molests (Remeber that) people ihis sleep actually does molest people. He admitted it. He went to school at this Reoberto Venn school of Luthery. Hey Thomas, you ever heard of that, it's in Arizona. A molester went there lol.

Sure. I was speaking within the little bit of wiggle room allowed. I don't think I explained myself very clearly, but I'd probably still be holding a minority opinion even if I had so I won't try to elaborate.

I just always thought she was ok. Other than when she first appeared being portrayed as some kind of female Eminem. I guess I just got a totally different vibe from her than you guys did.

well i think i see what you're saying. Whether or not it was genuine, it was refreshing to have a female pop singer doing something different? If that's what you meant, i fully agree. Britney and christina and jessica and blah blah blah... They were all the same and so boring. Anyway, i especially agree with your last sentence. I'm gonna put on some pink and dance around the room like a fool. I hope you did the same :-D

Yes, that was definitely part of it. Most female acts with mainstream success at the time seemed to be rather interchangeable. These days Pink doesn't stand out as something unique, but it felt like she did back then. And as someone already mentioned she apparently wrote her own songs and whatnot. Things like that made her feel less manufactured. And I genuinely liked the music. It's really rare for me to like a female singer. Probably because my taste leans towards all things rock based and that's clearly male dominated.

yeah i think the fact that, after her first album, she's had a good rock sound always made her way more interesting to me. None of the other late nineties pop singers had that. I don't like the whole 'pink is the same as avril' thing. Both are female pop singers who were less typical girly in their personar... But their styles, actual persona, attitudes, and music have always been way different. I listened to some pink earlier, and damn. Conversations with my thirteen year old self is SUCH a good song...

Avril always felt massively manufactured. An attempt to cash in on the growing pop-punk popularity. I remember first hearing about her at a Greenday/Blink 182 concert. The way they were advertising her rubbed me the wrong way immediately. I'll admit I liked a few of her songs, but the only similarity I see between her and Pink is a vagina.

Did you know Avril is no longer with Derek from Sum 41? For some inexplicable reason that news made me sad. I wanted to slap myself for caring. Just a random bit of info.

12-23-2009, 12:50 PM
She clearly had a target group, a great many of her songs were about the underappreciated alternative or unpopular 'rock' guys who later on would overcome adversity somehow to score the super model while still staying true to the values of their subculture.

I'm embellishing that a bit, but not by much. I think I would be able to write great screenplays for Fox though.
