my opinion of pop music

Don’t get me wrong, I love music. Our relationship has been going on for years now with no end in sight. I’m open to listening to almost any genre within reason of course. I’m not fond of rap music as a general rule.

Some country music I like, but you have to dig through the muck of booze, trucks, and scantily clad girls to find the real gems. I like foreign music, some K-pop or Vocaloids and a few Swedish songs by Caramel. Theme songs are always good, as are movie soundtracks. Alternative is where I find most of my music. (I’ll have to do a post about my favorite artists sometime.)

It’s pop music that gets me.

Where I work, the radio station that plays is the pop station in our area. I don’t mind some pop music. There are several songs I quite enjoy (Fight Song-Rachel Platten, See You Again-Wiz Khalifa, Coming Home-Skylar Gray for example). I do take exception to songs that degrade women, have cursing in them, or are just foul in general.

I wouldn’t have such a problem if the radio station would learn about this marvelous theory called “Variety”. Ever hear of it? Yeah, because playing the same songs over and over with no change gets really old, really fast. At the end of the work day, I’m more than ready to yank my hair out by the roots if I have to hear ‘Uma Thurman’ by Fall Out Boy one. more. time. *insert screaming*

So please, play something new. Or better yet, change the radio station, novel idea that may be.

For the sake of my sanity and peace of mind.

Thank you.
