    Default What is the lamest song that you like?

    To counter the smugness that permeates the over-rated musical act thread, I thought I would seek some humility and ask all of you to confess what you believe to be the lamest song that, in your heart of hearts, you know you like.

    I was provided this idea with a discussion today. As is customary, I will open.

    The lamest song I like is Supermassive Blackhole by Muse.

    EDIT: Soul Education by Jamiroquai is probably a close second.

    Tracy Chapman- Fast Car

    Not that it's lame, but I don't like any of her other stuff and it's nothing like what I usually like, there's just something about it.

    psychosocial - slipknot
    YouTube - Slipknot - Psychosocial

    I personally don't find the song that lame... but my musically elite friends keep telling me I'm betraying my mostly (punk with a healthy dose of metal/alternative/rock) roots or whatever.

    I actually like supermassive blackhole by muse too as well as some of their other stuff, but then again I also listen to alkaline trio... yeah I guess I pretty much listen to whatever the hell I want lame or not.

    Nah I actually have the dope cover of that song in my itunes - YouTube - Dope - You Spin Me Right Round (Dead Or Alive cover)

    edit: yeah I don't know why that links to a Manson montage but whatever...

    If you deem a song to be lame why would you like it?

    Well if you're looking at things from a relative perspective then a song wouldn't be "lame" if one likes it, but if you're looking at it from a general consensus then I don't think the individual gets to decide what is and is not lame according to the general populous. So depending on whose doing the defining and relative to what you may or may not have a "lame" song, but either way I personally don't care so long as I like something... Imho if it's playing on your personal ipod or whatever then who cares what the masses think if you are however entertaining a group function with your music selection some consideration for the tastes of others might be in order.

    Well, Radiohead isn't a song.

    Because musical taste is fundamentally irrational. I may find that a song is lame in any way that I can rationalize, but I emotionally and sensorally respond to it positively, and it keeps coming back into my mind.

    EDIT: I was distinguishing the irrational mind from the rational mind, but spin was also right in noting the separation of self and the masses OR cultural authorities (either one can put you in a bind).
