Mum: "Who's that boy?"

*After she saw a picture of Johnny Marr on my computer.*

Me: "The king of the jangle!"

Mum: "The king of the jungle? He was in I'm a celebrity get me out of here?!"

Me: "No mum, the jangle. As in Jangle Pop. You're thinking of Shaun Ryder."

Mum: "Oh."

Bless.

Here in America I think I'd be hard pressed to find someone who even knows what I mean by jangle pop.

To be fair, she misheard me.
We have a terrible reality TV show called I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, a bunch of worn out celebrities in a jungle surviving on nothing and doing trials etc.
Johnny Marr is a Manc, Shaun Ryder is a Manc so it wasn't stupid, it just amused me.
Though she had no idea what I meant by Jangle Pop, but I wouldn't expect her to.
It still tickled me. I would've thought people in American would've known, R.E.M are massive.

See, over here in America, R.E.M are a staple of the radio, but they're classified as Alternative, usually. I've never heard of the term "Jangle Pop" before.

And "I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here" airs here too, I think... I've seen commercials for it. Just incase you'll ever need to know.

So I'm trying to show a buddy of mine Pelican, and I find him staring at me about twenty minutes into the Australasia album...

Me: "Got a problem?"
Him: "Well, it's just that we've been listening to this for a while now and there's no singing."
Me: "It's instrumental."
Him: "What the hell does that mean?"
Me: "Really? It means there's no singing."
Him: "That's stupid. What's the point of music with no words?"
In my head: "****in' idiot. Just go back to your Kanye West and Lady Gaga."

Another guy yesterday tried to convince me that all music is based on lyrics. Couldn't really even call it a conversation, 'cause after he said that all I could do was stare in disbelief of his stupidity.

Yup, that sounds about right.

It's not accurate, I but I can see where the second person is coming from if he meant that's his favorite part of music. I kind of used to lean that way, but I certainly knew what an instrumental was

Here's a non specific one that's been bothering me...

Hip Hop and Rap are not different genres. Why do so many people think this? Strictly speaking, Hip Hop is the musical genre and "Rap" or "rapping" is the vocal technique used in that genre. But I've met people who are really convinced otherwise and when I try to explain my understanding of it, they cite examples like Kid Cudi, Chris Brown, and The Black Eyed Peas as hip hop, and Biggie Smalls, 2pac, Jedi Mind Tricks, etc as "rap."

Thing is, they're just calling a different era and sub genre of hip hop "rap" while calling just about whatever hip hop is on the radio today "hip hop". It takes 30 seconds to look it up and learn for themselves yet they don't.

I don't get why not.

In a related vein, I was talking to a friend about folk music last night. He said, "listen to this. It's like, pure folk."

So I listened to it, and I said "it sounds like country" and he said "yeah well what's the difference?"

At first I was like, what do you mean what's the difference? And then I thought about it and I realized I couldn't actually define the difference between Folk and Country, as I didn't know it myself.

So I looked it up this morning. Folk Music and Country Music - How is Folk Music Different From Country Music?
