Top Ten Signs You Are Listening To Bad Music
The Top Ten
I know what you say, but 80% of songs with more than a billion views sound the same (Closer, Girls Like You, Bad Blood), and some make no sense without watching the video (Roar). Numb reached a billion a few weeks ago, but you see the point of this item.
For the ones who don't agree: I added this item because of the following billion songs: Sugar, Shake It Off, Roar, Thinking Out Loud, Lean On (! ), Closer, Work From Home, Worth It (! ), Watch Me, Girls Like You, Hotline Bling, On The Floor, Firework, Bad Blood, Don't Let Me Down, Gentleman and any reggaeton song (sorry if I included somebody's favorite). It is much harder to collect the good ones.
It could be a sign your listening to good music, as well. Look at "Numb" from Linkin Park, for example.
Many good songs that deserve 1 billion views are not even close to 1 billion views while crappy songs do.
Nowadays singers don't need talent, they just need to twerk and try to look attractive in the video to get views and gain in popularity.
Let's be honest here: they don't even need to be attractive, just have a good surgeon and make-up artist. - Alkadikce
If your music is good, you don't need tricks like this to sell your music. Are you offering music or sex?
I loathe twerking.
Y'all need to get educated on african culture
*cough cough* Drake *cough cough*
LOL. I know exactly what you mean.
I don’t know that song but this is funny
There are so many great songs which have grammatically incorrect lyrics; It doesn't mean they're bad songs at all.
I heard a song on the radio that says something like "You're the dutch and I'm the duchess".
Although it doesn’t necessarily make the song bad, it is a little bit of a throw off when they use incorrect grammar in their songs.
There are exceptions but I think this is true in general.
I agree with most of the reasons on this list but there are some amazing female artists out there (mostly old or underground) that are semi naked. Whoever added this, probably just looks at the recent top 10 billboard.
Good music doesn't need sexual images to be sold.
Depends though if it's a guy
Oversexualized singers should not be semi naked in videos because no one wants to see sexual people in good song's music videos
Not neccessarily. Stairway to Heaven's lyrics are also pretty dumb, and a lot of jazz songs have very silly lyrics due to improvisation.
Dumb or random lyrics doesn't mean that the lyrics are bad though
“England is my city”
Make an exception for Stevie Wonder's "Another Star"
It's sad that most rappers nowadays pretty much only talk about those topics or of how much money they have.
I don’t like songs about sex and drugs, I just find it annoying and it seems to be a repetitive topic especially in modern music. Not saying that modern music is bad.
Lucy in the sky with diamonds!
Why don't we do it in the road?
Look at me, I got a case of body language.
Lool the last two songs I referenced are my guilty pleasures. Nobody shall stop me from listening to them!
Some people say Comfortably Numb is about drugs as well. And Mozart wrote a song Lech mich I'm Arsch (lick me in the a**)
Edit: a robot admin changed "I'm" to I'm.
Great music can be sold without circus like this.
Wait, what? Lmao
YouTube comments don't determine song quality. It just determines fanbase quality.
It doesn't mean too much good if they are already being afraid of people not watching it any more after one year.
But comments don’t define talent!
But sometimes they show what kind of people are listening to that kind of music. In Wish You Were Here's comment section, everybody is talking about dead family members
This doesn't mean the song is bad though, just that you don't care if the song is good or bad because your not paying attention to it
If I am listening to a song in a foreign language...
I do both
That’s what I mostly do when I listen to rap music.
No, not always true. Most people don't like classical music but it doesn't mean Pavarotti has sung bad music or Paganini has played bad music.
Just because you don't like a song doesn't mean that it is bad everyone has different musical tastes, some people enjoy rock, some jazz. some rap, some R&B, just because you don't like rap doesn't mean that it is bad same is true for other types of music mentioned.
On the other hand if it is a song that you dislike from a genre or band you love then it probably is a bad song
I'd rather listen to an autotuned voice than a weak, forgettable that needs autotune to sound decent, although I listen to neither when it is possible.
K-pop singers in a nutshell.
A little bit of autotune won’t hurt anything. I’m sure a lot of my favourite singers probably use it, but if it’s to the point the singer is relying on it to make their voice sound good, then there’s a problem.
Examples: love-life, (nowhere to) run-(nowhere to) hide, two words ending in -tion, baby-crazy, you-you
Exception: The Great Gig in the Sky.
That's pretty much all we see in music videos. Sensuality was always a very efficient tactic for selling things. Just look at some commercials that use half-naked women to make products look more appealing.
I saw a Polyphia music video. The band was just playing, but at some points there were clips of a busty woman walking around. WHY? Nothing to do with the music! (Instrumental Progressive Metal).
What's next? Pole dancers accompanying a symphonic orchestra?
I mean “Girls on Film” by Duran Duran had naked women, and that was released in the 80s.
That's personal preference. I like to jog listening to some rock.
But how does this show that you are listening to a bad song? If I'm at the gym I would listen to Iron Maiden, Metallica, Slayer, Pantera, Powerwolf, Megadeth, Judas Priest, Rammstein, etc. Absolutely none of those bands are terrible.
I don't see anything wrong with that. Jogging with Iron Maiden can improve your results.
That's personal preference.
Just because people know a song, that doesn't mean it’s bad! That doesn't even make sense!
