Often times when I play my music at work people say that it is stupid because it lost it's popularity ten years ago. They want to hear slipknot, senses fail, and those gothic bands. However, I asked a person who said this to me what he liked to hear in a song. He said "I like to hear about drugs, death, and destruction. I want to hear about lost love and the effects on the lovers! Play that stuff!"
So, In responce to this, I changed the song from Sweet Emotion by Aerosmith to Cocaine by Eric Clapton. The guy said "That's a whole lot better. This is good music."
Weird, huh? Do people really know good music when the hear it? Do they really know what they're talking about?
What are your opinions?
