"Uhm, basically I like everything what's on the radio or in the charts"

You know what really grinds my gears?

- When people list their “Favorite” music, artists and songs. And if their list contains some genderless bullshit like tunes with the nerve-wracking voice of Adam Levine or off-the-rack idiots like Mr Guetta. What is going on those people’s heads?! Something…

isnt it ableist, classist, ageist to expect people to widen their genre palettes.

you need to ask people or yourself the reason why they are like that.

put a little imagination into it.
i can see many reasons why. myself.

You should definitely read my whole post before you interrupt me at an inappropriate point in order to comment with inappropriate misrepresentations. I don’t expect people to widen their genre of music; consequently there is nothing ableist (wtf?! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ableism), neither ageist about my statement. I don’t think that you grasped my intention with what I mean… Anyway, I see the first post on your blog which is a song by Nicki Minaj which is pure irony in this context.

- When people list their “Favorite” music, artists and songs. And if their list contains some genderless bullshit like tunes with the nerve-wracking voice of Adam Levine or off-the-rack idiots like Mr Guetta. What is going on those people’s heads?! Something that’s acoustically omnipresent, whether in malls, the radio or almost every TV-ad, some tootling that is not pleasant but deadening to our audio perception, can’t be your “Favorite” music.

I’m not saying that this kind of “popular” music should be abandoned or ignored. Neither do I want to despise the artistic talent of those musicians. At least it is good to have a contrast to our wider perception of sounds. But people should start to appreciate the diversity of sounds that is brought to us by many outstanding artists to sharpen our perception to indescribable varieties of sounds. This makes me love many genres of music as long as it is what is commonly known as quality music; therefore I consider myself to be a tolerant person.

Nevertheless, guys who call Pitbull and Flo Rida their favorite musicians are being ignorant and vulgar to music.  That’s like if I called the fly on my kitchen table my pet; or like eating Mexican food without any spices. But maybe that’s just my intolerance as I don’t like those people.
