I just want to vent about the UK general public. The vast majority bandwagon the 'next big thing' and just listen to whatever's popular on the 'Spotify top 100' .. it means talentless trash tops the charts for weeks while hidden pop gems flop hard sad.gif

For example, just a few pieces of hot trash that is currently charting in the UK top 50 iTunes for whatever reason:

[1] Uptown Funk
[2] Take Me To Church sick2.gif sick2.gif sick2.gif
[10] Thinking Out Loud
[21] Something Big
[29] Budapest
[31] Blame It On Me
[32] I'm Not The Only One
[40] Changing
[41] Sing
[42] All Of Me
[44] Let It Go
[45] Stay With Me

Please tell me someone has the same opinion as well dry.gif

People have different opinions to you. That's all. I personally love all of the songs on that list bar Changing and Let It Go, and even then I still like Changing.

'Hot trash' isn't really a term I'd use to describe Take Me To Church and 'talentless' isn't a word I'd objectively use to describe ANY of the acts you've listed.

But whatever floats your boat.

The UK public is exactly the same as every other public. You realise most of those songs have done well everywhere else, too?

the pure AUDACITY of slagging off the uk charts by using fabulous modern classics like Uptown Funk, Take Me To Church and Let It Go as examples

I don't know what is worse; someone being quite patronising and criticising everyone's music taste, or "Uptown Funk" being described as 'hot trash charting for whatever reason'. sad.gif

Sam Smith is utterly horrific and I don't know he's popular, but in like the rest of these songs. I love the likes of Let It Go, Sing and especially Take Me To Church <3 Some of these are overplayed and boring by now, but only the Sam ones are bad imo.

(That's my daily Sam dig out of the way ~)

why exactly do you care if the british public has shit taste? collective taste always tends to be poor, be it music, arts, comedy or television. to appeal to to such a wide audience it has to be totally ironed out and inoffensive and banal.

to me personally chart acclaim and sales is pretty inconsequential; what's more important is having a range of music, excellent for different reasons available to listen to and see live. i couldn't give a shit for the charts and what joe public likes. there is more important stuff regarding the public's opinions to waste my energy on; like their ability to possibly reelect another conservative government.

My laughter was directed at Jamesus and his implication that the likes of 'Take Me To Church' and 'Budapest' are 'hot trash' while 'California' somehow isn't.

(Though any of this 'how dare people like things I don't like!!1!' attitude is awful in general)

I wonder how you figure that 'everyone just listens to what's on the Spotify top 100'. The songs on there had to get there first by, you know, people actually liking them.

Virtually your entire list is just male artists. So basically you find all male pop offensive and everything female is a bop. That's fine, most on here are in the same boat. But it means your taste is narrow, not that the general public are wrong.

Bit harsh of a topic drama.gif get used to Uptown Funk, it be around for the next 12 months, its basically Happy all over again. You can't change other people's music taste, I know I'm guilty of hating All Of Me and Let It Go, but I don't go round creating a topic over it.

I do personally feel quite disillusioned with a lot of the general tastes of the public (for example a huge amount of dance songs recently, some of them are shockingly bad, basic and formulaic but are hailed as creative or the "future") but that's not that the general taste is "bad" it's just that my tastes are changing and don't correlate with the charts as much as they did say four years ago.

Jake is right when he says that to be really popular you often have to be inoffensive, whether you're an actor, singer, anything. But for me, inoffensive often is kind of offensive if that makes sense laugh.gif

The majority of the UK public are casual music fans, hence some take a lot longer to latch onto songs than members of a music forum. That is why 6-10 month old songs are still there.
