Quote from: Guybrush on Dec 01, 2023, 08:27 AMI love your office album idea and also really like mundane style lyrics. As you point out, everyone's life isn't a rollercoaster of drama. Every romance or heartbreak isn't destined and written in the stars.
Quote from: TheBig3 on Dec 09, 2023, 03:15 AMHow about you? Is there an album by an established band you think people should check out, especially if they didn't like that band before?
Quote from: TheBig3 on Nov 30, 2023, 05:19 PMI've been thinking about this last post for awhile. And I've come to the obvious conclusion that soul is easier to fake, and it's easier to sell records with. Not so mind-blowing, but it's weird how I now have a PTSD-like response to hearing a soulful voice than I do some wankery. Or anything else really.Where can music go that the BS artists can't find them. They're technical, they're soulful, they're lo-fi, they're indie, their whimsical. Maybe we need a movement where bands start writing about office culture. Not in a supportive or hateful way, just what life is like while waiting for the k-cup to finish, and needing the copier when someone is doing a massive print job. I need a song title like "Lonesome on hold in the conference room" or "10,000 miles and 5,000 packages between me and by baby."Heartbreak in 4 bars with vague, "everyone can identify" lyrics is just so played out. Did she mean the world to you? Did he make you feel like this was forever. Well it wasn't, and if you bothered listening to other records before making one, you'd have known that. Love is fickle and cruel. But rush hour...that's always there. It's ever-present and miserable and we need to sing about it with a saxophone behind it.As soon as this kid is less dependent on me, I'm writing an album about life as sung from inside the monkey suit.
Quote from: DJChameleon on Dec 09, 2023, 12:45 PMThis entire post is the definition of old man yelling at clouds. Bro you are just getting old. You've always been kind of crotchety but your age is enhancing it.The reason there are so many love songs and greatest love or breakup songs besides as you say it yourself that it is universal. Wtf is wrong with talking about themes that everyone can relate to? Construction workers can't relate to your Office Space wanna be lyrics. There is a reason why there are decades of music spanning generations about the general big themes that occur in life just with a slightly different sound to appeal to a younger generation.I see no issues in it. I would probably poo poo mundane lyrics so badly. Andre 3k is right no one wants to hear about old people going to get a colonoscopy or that you couldn't find your red stapler. Or about the time you were ready to clock out and your boss made you stay late to finish up TPS reports.
Quote from: Guybrush on Dec 10, 2023, 09:23 AMI'd love to hear a song about doing expense reports by Friday or stealthily using the copier for private purposes. I haven't heard those songs before.
QuoteForget about clones like Kingdom Come and Whitesnake: as much as any band in existence, Jane's Addiction is the true heir to Led Zeppelin, creating music that's simultaneously forbidding and weighty, delicate and ethereal
Quote from: TheBig3 on Jan 31, 2024, 02:02 AM1. Do you have strong opinions on Jane's Addiction?2. Do you accept the statement above - they gave us a Led Zeppelin fix?3. Are there bands today you think are filling the shoes of [insert group here]?
