  1. Just need to point out that Genesis's move from prog to more mainstream pop rock was not totally Phil Collins' doing. Keyboardist Tony Banks pretty much ran the ship in the late 70's and 80's, and he is the one who steered them towards more mainstream music. I think there is a perception that Phil Collins turned them into his own personal hit machine, but it's not reality. And even on their pop rock records in the 80's, they were still sprinkling in some proggy tunes in there.
  2. In a vacuum, I would agree, but considering how much heat she has taken over the years for dating different men in her 20's (the horror!!), she is probably sick of any jokes about her dating life, and her natural instinct clearly is still to snap back.
  3. Same here. I couldn't care less about who a celebrity is dating. I know that Swift has supposedly been dating the same guy for 3-4 years now, and has said before that Blank Space, her most famous song about relationships, was satire (it was poking fun at the media's portrayal of her), so if nothing else she is a master at turning any criticism or negative into a positive for herself. Madonna was that way as well for a long time, and it appears as if Taylor is as much of a marketing genius.
  4. Haven't we evolved past the point where being slut shammed is something a woman is supposed to just "let go"? Yeah, to say her hardcore fans are dedicated would be an understatement. Fan is short for fanatic, after all.
  5. The real quandry will be when the woke culture realizes that R.E.M. once mentioned Dr. Seuss in a song and internally battles with themselves over whether or not to cancel Michael Stipe.
  6. I had never heard that. Not bad at all. Of her pop stuff, I like the 1989 material the most. I love me some 80's, so an album that harkens back to the 80's is right up my alley. I am not one to play the misogyny card, but the "she doesn't write her own music" narrative just reeks of "Oh, she is a woman and she is pretty, so she couldn't have possibly written her own music." Oh, but she didn't help? BFD. Many of the most popular musicians in the last 60 years (using the Beatles as a starting point) didn't write many or any of their songs by themselves.
  7. You and me both. It is impossible for me not think of that scene when this song comes on somewhere (I never turn it on on purpose).
  8. If you are willing to dig into her two new albums, which are pretty laid back and a bit folksy, try the below. Most of the songs feature her great storytelling lyrics. The hooks are not as immediate as her pop stuff, but they are there. Some incredible songwriting here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o5SQIECedTY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bdLTPNrlEg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pc_2ZKB4LVc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2s5xdY6MCeI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-a8s8OLBSE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RsEZmictANA https://www.youtube.com/watch
  9. Three months ago, I couldn't name a song by her (honest!). Today, I have become a fan, largely thanks to her two 2020 albums, Folklore and Evermore, both of which are tremendous. Some of her pop stuff is quite good as well. I can't get into to her early country stuff, but I get the appeal for others. Maybe I am fanboying already, but it feels like a lot of the criticism thrown her way over the years is unfair (not all of it, but a lot of it). She is a helluva lyricist, and seems to have a really good head on her shoulders. And yes, she is very easy on the eyes, which never hurts , but s
  10. She makes Frank Drebin sound like Freddie Mercury.
  11. Pretty average song until the guitar solo at the end, and even that is a major tease. Feels like he is just about to let her rip and then it fades out and just ends. Blah.
  12. So what you're saying is, the crowd is buying Trump's fake news, right?
  13. Yep, that is poor form. Even when we know what songs are coming, the courteous thing to do is to let their thread runner list them instead of playing spoiler.
  14. I thought this guy was still gonna be a stereo salesman when he was 50?
