Default THE question...

So I was having a conversation with my girlfriend yesterday, brought on by a Razorlight video.

Her: Turn it off.
Me: No, I like this video, look at them dance! TEE HEE HEE!
Her: I don't like Razorlight. They are boring.
Me: They aren't very original, but they did help revive Rock n Roll in some small way.
Her: *GASP* THEY DIDN'T REVIVE ROCK N ROLL!
Me: Well, they helped to bring it back into the mainstream, along with the Arctic Monkeys.
Her: That doesn't mean they revived it. That just means they have got a load of people who don't actually like Rock n Roll to listen to it, alienating those who do like it.
Me: That isn't their fault, though. The more people who listen the better!
Her: That doesn't make it better.
Me: So you're telling me that you would rather have a small bunch of people who appreciate the music, but are still a minority nonetheless, turn up to your gig than Chili's concert sized proportions of people?


Which leads me to my question... would you rather be in a band that has millions turning up to their concert, but most of those people aren't true fans they just like your most popular single or something, or would you rather be in a band that plays in small venues but to a crowd of people where everyone truly appreciates your music.

Latter, its more fun, you'll probably have to keep your dayjob but you can reach more people in a small venue than in a giant field, theres more passion and intimicy.

I think they are pretty generic to be honest, but I do enjoy some of their music. In The Morning is a good song though

And I would rather have the first choice, cos when you've got thousands of people watching you perform I doubt that you would be thinking 'well this is great and all, but do they appreciate my music?'

Hey Hobo, if you do dump her, could you give her my phone number?

I'll PM it to you.

Nah, but seriously would you really want to be in a relationship with someone with the same EXACT taste as yours.... That would get boring as hell.

I'm not complaining! We have some good music debates, which she always wins cos she's got a great taste in music really. She's putting me onto a lot of old stuff/obscure stuff that I would never have listened to before.

And her number? SHE'S 15 YOU PSYCHO!

They both have their perks.

But what really matters is how many lovely ladies come to the after party
