I have never been a big fan of Pink Floyd. In reading this thread I decided to give this record another go.
I still hate it.
Wow. Just not you cup of tea?
I liked Animals for some reason. Maybe because the first time I listened to it was the first time I had ever heard any of those songs.
I think radio overplay has a lot to do with what I like and what I don't. If it is a radio staple, I am going to hate it. With so much music out there to play, why do radio stations have to run certain songs into the ground?
There are a great many bands that I once liked or even loved who I now can't stand because of the radio.
The radio stations play the staples because they tend to be the band’s best work
. Not necessarily what the diehards would pick (e.g., Xanadu vs. Limelight) but great songs that even casual fans enjoy.
I tend to disagree.
But really, I never listen to the radio anymore. Unfortunately, having listened to so much of it in my youth I have many songs that I will forever be critical of.
I don't listen to terrestrial radio anymore, other than local sports talk. If I listen to music it's really only Sirius/XM.
Give me an example of a staple of a band that you don't think is at least one of their best songs. This is a topic that interests me, so I'm curious about your thoughts.
This is so easy I could do it all day.
Scorpions - Rock You Like a Hurricane.
Any song played on the radio by:
Guns & Roses
That doesn't count the numerous bands that people love and get tons of radio play who I just flat dislike. Bands like:
The Rolling Stones
I could really do this all day.
