Pop music peaked in 1978.

This song made quite a lot of people suddenly interested in the fall of the Russian empire.

This made me quite nostalgic so here’s a treat for ya (in case you never heard it before)


#12

I never get to properly explain that I like this unironically.


#13

That is a dreadful song but that’s the point of this. Actually liking something unironically.
We are with you, there’s no shame.


#14

Proof that Indians are way ahead of their time!

Through the advent of ‘headphones’ (which are tiny speakers that fit on your head - brilliant!), I’ve managed to not subject others to my poor musical taste, thus a complete lack of guilt in my off-color music choices.

Honestly, probably something really 80s like Sisters of Mercy. Most people didn’t want to hear that ridiculous shit back then, nobody wants to hear it now, but I still love it.

I’ve been trying to think of something I listen to that is actually a “guilty” pleasure. I could list any number of things other people might laugh at me for liking but I don’t think that is the same thing.

That was what I was having trouble connecting. I go out of my way to listen to music I think is good. I understand that music and my valuation of good is subjective, but it’s mine. Thus, everything I listen to has some redeeming quality for me, and I can usually point that out if need be, so I don’t really feel guilty about it. Like I can’t think of a song that I like that I wish I didn’t. If I didn’t think it had some value for me, I wouldn’t listen to it.

If we’re just talking about stuff that isn’t mainstream that might get some raised eyebrows or a snicker amongt people that like and listen to whatever’s on Top 40 radio, then yeah…that’s almost everything I listen to. That’s not much of a litmus test.

In the spirit of the thread and not being a party pooper I’ll say Brittney Spears’ Toxic…I always thought the production was interesting for pop music at the time.
