Bloody stupid boring kids with their crappy taste in music!
Thread is about a musician, so I'd say it's the right place, sorry.
Energy wasted on rubbish music
You think that was bad? Look at these losers! Do they think they are "cool" or something? Ha!
You flatter me!!
Maybe the scope of people's musical taste is partly dependent on how their brains are wired:
Why Some People Just Don't Like Music
Ed Sheeran has 16 songs in the Top 20
and all of his three albums are in the Top 5 albums
Ed Sheeran's dominance of the Top 20 is a only a symptom of how sick the charts are
He once fell in love with a bean bag when he was pilled up. That makes him alright in my book
You know who Ed Sheeran reminds me of? Daniel O'Donnell.
He's more like a ginger James Blunt.
Eds on this weeks People Just Do Nothing AND a forthcoming Game of Thrones
I think this has gone too far now
I would like to hear his 'Rains of Castamere'
Nice photoshop job by the BBC to help us visualise his forthcoming cameo...
I've been listening to some of his latest album. It's not bad. Some of it sounds a bit Tracy Chapman.
The Mrs bought it the other day. I didn't mind the last one but this one is awful. Shite pop by numbers. He does seem alright but his music is fucking dull.
I tried his album, and found it pretty dull - but i'm pleased he's doing well. He seems okay, writes and plays a lot of his own stuff, and hasn't traded on looks. I think a lot of the grief he gets is simply "playa-hatin".
Divide and conquer: Ed Sheeran album breaks chart records around the world
Please let him die horribly, in GoT, not for real.
you just said the music is dull....i think its dull-hating
its funny tbf
People Just Do Nothing, People Just Do Nothing Feat. Ed Sheeran
Therapeutic...MC Grindah speaks for us all....
Yeh, agreed.. seems a good sort. Not my cup of tea but each to their own. Coldplay get similar hatred which I find pretty pathetic tbh. Who actually gives a shit if these artists are globally huge with the sort of people who consume music in a different way to the way I do.
Because we don't like the music, and it's popularity makes it difficult to escape from. That's all - popularity in itself isn't the problem. I can't speak for anyone else, but I love pop music. I just hate Ed Sheeran's music, and I've had Thinking Out Loud as an earworm for the best part of a week now.
as before, and with james blunt also mentioned, I think its "dull-hating"... and popular bands usually have their music forced on people through mass airplay, and thats where the annoyance builds up. I think people find it genuinely annoying.
For me a much worse category of music that really makes my blood boil is certain earnest one man and a guitar/twee-ukele/piano and pizzicato false-excitement inoffensive filth! Ed Sheeran seems to skate close to this by virute of being one man and a guitar, but ive not really heard his music enough to find out just how close to the void he goes.
Anyhow, to me any public Rage Against The Blandness is a reassuring sign that theres still some signs of life out there
ETA: bit of a snap-post with KB there
I am finding I am listening to :
Shape of you
Castle on the hill
Thinking out loud
I think they are his stronger songs, I have at least one as an earworm atm
I know this is completely and utterly shallow but you have to give the guy credit for being this successful while not exactly being the most classically good looking of chaps
They obviously want folk to leave Glastonbury early this year.
I shazamed (is that even a word) his song castle on the hill cause I was sure I knew the artist and its taken till tonight to realised the artist I thought it was a guy Luke Colcannon from the band Nizlopi (JCB song) who I've enjoyed listening to at a few small festivals. Turns out Ed is his friend and did his guitars before he got famous.
I was forced to listen to his album, X, twice today. It's still busking music with a drum machine.
My opinion has not changed, I just hate him more cos I paid attention to some of his lyrics. 'Just watching a dvd, smoking illegal weed' EDGY
