Can't find One Good Thing to say

2008-06-15 10:03:48 by Gorobie

As it happens, I'm a big fan of very strange indy music. Foreign stuff, too. I've found that pop music sounds much better when sung in a language I don't understand. I believe that's because pop lyrics are fucking terrible, but the music itself is not bad. We veer violently off-topic. Every time I feel the need to aquire some odd song that nobody has ever heard of before, YouTube is the first stop. It's good for that sort of thing, because there's a fair chance that somebody made a shitty amv to that particular song. However, it seems these days all I can find is some bizarre techno/dance/trance/rave/bullshit DJ Dan remix with more numbers in the title than I was aware existed in the current decimal system. It's like Puff Daddy's remix of Every Breath you Take. The infuriating aspect is not how incredibly poor the resulting song is, but that it still resembles the original, even to an infinitesimal degree. They're taking something I like; a cake, for instance, and then shovelling it full of shit, then feeding it to me again. It still bears a likeness to the original baked product, but everything I ever liked about it has been stripped away, and replaced with horrors of the modern world. Okay, maybe a song by The Police is a bad example considering I started this one about indy fringe music, but you see my point. I'm not adverse to cover songs in general, mind you. Some of the tracks on ocremix are amazingly professional, but that doesn't mean that I like the idea of the 1912 overture (not to be confused with the 1812 overture) on a synthesizer.
