I didn't realize "Get Lucky" was considered house music. I like that song. I think of house music as a 1980s/90s phenomenon, but I'm not like a musicologist or anything. I guess people are still making it. In any case, I like most forms of electronic music though there is A LOT of crap, and I couldn't always tell you which subgenre I'm listening to at any given time. Not usually for dedicated listening without another activity (e.g. dancing/exercising), except for the more nuanced kinds. These are not really that nuanced at all, but they're really good workout songs:
BTW, my sister pointed out that in the extended version of "Get Lucky," the robot voice sounds like it's saying "We'll rub a Mexican monkey" and now I can't hear it any other way.
For morons, no. I enjoy a good house beat for sure, but the mood has to be right. I'm not putting on some house music and meditating or going on a bike ride. I'm probably turning it up and driving fast to work, cleaning my house or getting ready to go out for the night, or actually being out for the night and letting the beat take over. It definitely satisfies something a little primal in me or whatever, so yeah, it's not like intellectually stimulating. But you don't need to be a moron to want to feel the bass vibrate inside your body. I like to think there are more layers to the human psyche than this idea implies.
You hem me in -- behind and before;
you have laid your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.
I don't think it's for morons. In fact, some of the smartest people I know listen to it. I tried searching articles about it, but up till now I could only find articles on music preference and personality (mostly concluding people who like dance are more extraverted and agreeable). Anyways, I'll tell you when I find something useful.
