I have been facing this strange issue lately. I can’t seem to be able to find good music, unless I go back to the stuff I used to listen to a decade or more ago.
Back then, it typically would work like this – I would hear some music somewhere (MTV, Channel V or some cafe maybe), find out the artiste, and go home and listen to the whole album. And all of it would be good. Bon Jovi (yes, don’t snigger), Enrique (yep, I liked him then. Yup), Lucky Ali (Still do), Santana (smooooth….), Dido, Nelly Furtado, Linkin Park, Collective Soul…so many of them. One song was enough, I knew I could follow the artiste for a few years and would love all of her/his work.
Its so bloody difficult now. One good song is just that – one good song. Example? I liked Lana Del Ray’s Summertime Sadness. Or Tove Lo’s Habits. A few more. The rest of the album was a nah.
So anyway, don’t know if it’s me or really the whole thing has just gotten boring. A pondering for some other day by the beach in a long vacation with nothing else to think about. Ciao.
