Default My Problem With Emo

This isn`t going to be a bitch thread so don`t get your knickers in a twist.

OK , I like to think that I have a pretty broad mind when it comes to music.I don`t really have a favourite genre of music I listen to. And yet despite all this I seem to have a problem with emo.

I`ve been thinking about why this is and what I can do to rectify this.I don`t have a problem with the concept of it so why do I not like it.

Then it occured to me.

I`ve never seen ANYONE on this forum come up with a list of SONGS that define the genre , even though i`ve asked a few times in various threads. It`s all very well giving out long lists of bands catagorising them into different genres , sub genres , sub sub genres and all the rest of it.But if there is nothing to grab me why should I care?

So anyway , I don`t care about emo , screamo , post hardcore or any of that crap or whatever you call it.All i`m doing is I challenge you lot to come up with a list of 10 SONGS that you think define emo as a genre and are the best that it has to offer of any style or sub genre there is.And in return I shall listen to them with a totally open mind & tell you what I think of them.

Is that fair?

I shall have a look at those.

I still refuse to beleive Nation Of Ulysses are emo though.

Given that I bought a couple of their albums almost 9/10 years ago That would mean I was emo before anyone almost else here.And we don`t want that.

You mean you listened to an emo band before the majority of the posters here. Most of these early bands don't consider themselves emo bands, just bands playing some punk music and that's really how it should have ended.

One problem that I have with Circle Takes The Square is the fact that the lead singer(and I use that term loosley) sounds like a demon. I downloaded the song "Crow Quill" and I thought that the devil himself was speaking to me through the speakers. I don't get how people can listen to it. A scream every once is a while is ok, but when an entire song is just some guy with a sore throat singing the whole time, I find it difficult to listen to.

Uh the whole song is some guy with a sore throat singing? What about the female vocals in it? and how about at 40 seconds, is that also sore throat singing (you said the entire song)?
