She seems like a lot of fun in a weird crazy way.

So you like metal better, then?

Hmmm, I don't know why, but I have funny suspicion you like Ke$ha for reasons outside her music.
Nope. She definitely ain't ugly, but she's still not hot enough to make me obsess over her like I've been doing the last couple days. Her music is just so much fun. You remember fun, right?

I liked this so much I went and got the album, which I also think is pretty great. Thank you Goofle/Frownland recommendation chain.

Of course I remember fun, that's why I like punk over metal

No, I don't really like one genre over another, but I do like top 40 metal (Bon Jovi/Def Leppard) better than pop punk (Green Day/Blink 182), because the former is better composed. Although the latter makes some good catchy songs, I'd prefer to go with Dead or Alive and Foolin.

I'd make the same argument with the Eurythmics, Ke$ha's singles are okay, but I just find them really disposable after a couple of listens. Here Comes the Rain, Sweet Dreams, Who's that Girl are classic songs.

The point I'm trying to make is that songs from say Michael Jackson's Thriller or Pink Floyd's The Wall, are intergenerational. They are classics often regarded by critics as being some of the best composed "radio" songs of western civilization. People want to play them over and over again throughout there lifetime.

So much of modern pop music today seems disposable, you listen to it a couple of times and your like meh, its like we've entered into an artistic decline.

I've seriously been listening to Ke$ha, who has only two full-lengths and an EP, for two days straight, so she's not disposable to me at this point.

I don't discount his music's quality, but I could give a **** about Michael Jackson. I am generally very hit or miss on 80s mainstream pop, because the synthesizer sounds they use sound very dated to me. I love plenty of Madonna, but not so much her 80s material. So I would not say that any kind of music is necessarily intergenerational.

You will lol, but then again I've only downloaded her radio singles.

Fair enough, I feel the same way about Madonna, she really is the godmother of manufactured pop. I prefer Blondie and the Eurythmics.

Overall, I like a lot of new wave and disco hits, because their songs have a lots of musical notes in them, as they were composed by musicians who could play their own instruments, as opposed to a dancer relying on someone else to sample a tune, and match it to a backbeat.

There are still some intergenerational artists. Lady Gaga is extremely talented, and I imagine will be still be getting played thirty years from now, but they seem fewer and far between.

I think overall the talent bar has been dropped even in rock. Punk was never supposed to be commercialized. Bands like Green Day and the Offspring definitely dropped the talent bar. Before that there were high expectations if you wanted to be a successful rock act, it was expected that you at least had to try to play as good as Jimmy Page, but now all you have to do is play, du, du, du, du, du. Small wonder why rock is on its death thralls.

Guano Apes - Never Born. I would never have a problem with pop always sounding like this. But, you need to realize, that hearing and doing the same things over and over again will, of course become repetitive by definition, and you need a change of pace once in a while, something mix it up and break up the monotony of things....

Yes I may have misjudged her, she's got a lot more going on than Beyoncé.
