Musically Challenged

by Mitch on 16/06/2004

One of the things I have always prided myself on is that I have always had a good taste in music. I never went through stages of awful music as I grew up, like most of my friends did. When my friends and peers were listening to New Kids on the Block, I was listening to Nirvana. When my friends were taping the latest pop concert on television I was standing up, and bouncing around at a Guns N’ Roses concert.

This belief came crashing down the other day when mum pulled out some records. As she removed the dusty covers and looked over the smooth black vinyl, she found on that caught her eye. No it wasn’t her Kiss record (she has many of them), but instead was a single of “Hip, Shake, Jerk” by Quick. The only thing more flamingly homosexual than the name of the band or the title of the song is the band members themselves.

You be the judge…

Quick - Hip, Shake, Jerk

    *cough* well … ummm … yes … at least you have good taste now, right? lol

    We all go through stages like that man, its how we go about defining who we are.

    What you would find pretty sad is that my record collection is filled with the poppiest tunes from the 70’s – 90’s and there is only the odd touch of brilliance thrown in to make it all credible.

    I can totally agree with phalacee about how this sort of thing defines who we are – that also goes for things like the embarassing hairstyles, any tattoos and odd piercings we may have had in our youth – fond memories to tell our kids. Just ask your mum all about those Kiss records…..

    Growing up, i mean yeah i’m only the ripe old age of 17 now, but when i was like 10 right up until 13 i was mad about the spice girls, backstreet boys, all saints – all those dick bands that had no talent and have now disappeared forever, thank god. up until about 10yrs old I would listen to my brothers and sisters music, guns’n’roses, metallica, nirvana, pearl jam, etc. then after 13yrs i decided i needed to grow up a bit. now i listen to nirvana, rage against the machine, red hot chili peppers, and also some of the newer stuff such as evanescence (they are SO much better performing live) and also three days grace, jet, hoobastank, etc.
    i think our music taste changes with our age, and as we change and mature.
    anyways, enough dribble.
    be cool!
