xrichx saidHip hop hooray..
It's always amusing to see profiles where guys say they love all types of music.. except rap (hip hop) and country.
Sorry, but if my profile said anything, it might say that. We also don't like heavy metal but we don't put that in our profiles, not that we're ashamed, just that the mention doesn't seem necessary.
Actually I've heard some rap that I think is very good and those songs (though I couldn't name them) I like. But I find most of it sounds too much like the rest of it, even more so than what I refer to as formula rock** and so while I can enjoy listening to a song of it now and then, a few in a row would bug me.
I actually prefer listening to a wide range of music rather than any particular genre, possibly for this very reason. So I listen to a lot of international stuff, old stuff, classical stuff, broadway stuff, all mixed in with the modern western stuff.
A musical award winning friend of mine since childhood, (her stepdad wrote one of my favorite songs "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother") is a wonderfully talented musician (piano and guitar)/composer/lyricist who has written some easy listening which I completely adore but she's turned to country, which, while I know listening to it that it is technically good, I don't enjoy. That makes it tough to compliment one of her songs "Well, I don't like it at all, but it's very good."
The same for rap, The same for metal. the same for some of the conversation I see on this forum. A lot of it is just the same ol' stuff being rehashed over and over again. I get that a lot of life is just more of the same but listening to rap for me is like listening to the icecream truck coming by everyday. And I swear I'm gonna sue that bastard for torturing his listening public..
