  • Something negative about your top 20

    Dic 8 2007, 21:53 di AqualungBats5th

    I really like this meme because it takes more work to come up with something you don't like about artists you love than what you do like. For me it does, at least!

    1. XTC: This might be blasphemy (no pun intended) but I really hate the song "Dear God". Not because I disagree with the message (rather the opposite) but because it's one of their most well known songs among people from the US and it's... really not that good a song. Also, because it knocked one of my favorite XTC songs, "Mermaid Smiled" off of the American version of Skylarking.

    2. Kate Bush: For all the time she spent on it, I was really expecting more from "Aerial". It's a great album, sure.. but no "Hounds of Love"

    3. Big Country: Wow, this isn't easy. I guess "Peace in Our Time" for several songs like "Everything I Need" and "In This Place" for being just plain... boring. A lot of fans hate "No Place Like Home"…

  • Seen Live - My Crappy List

    Backstreet Boys - You'll have to forgive me for this and many other artists on this list. When I was little, I truly loved bubblegum pop.

    Britney Spears - This was the tour where she wore the tux and then stripped it off and was wearing an almost-transparent rhinestone costume underneath. Somehow, at the age of 8, I enjoyed it.

    Aaron Carter - At the time, he was my idol and I wanted to wrap him up and kiss him and marry him. I'd met him the day before (my mother used to be a journalist) and he wasn't very nice to me, but I didn't realize it til way later. All I really remember from this concert was the drummer saying, "Everybody say AARON! CARTER!"

    N'sync - They were okay; at least my mom could enjoy them with me.

    Christina Aguilera / Justin Timberlake - Not bad, actually. I always hated the Timberlake but Christina's voice makes me think that one day she'll do great things.

    Marc Jordan - Saw him twice and he kicked ass both times. …
