Pop vs Rock
Girls Aloud – Something Kinda Oooh
Front 242 – Headhunter
That Girls Aloud track was pure EBM probably went unnoticed because no bugger has listened to EBM since about 1989 anyway.
Lindsay Lohan – To Know Your Name
Nine Inch Nails – Closer [NSFW]
Do you think that someone on LiLo’s team was a Reznor fan? Or were they just confident that nobody would be paying attention? Pandora picked this up for me based on the actual sounds in the actual song. I would never have heard it otherwise because, well, it’s Lindsay Lohan.
Sugababes – Round Round
Danielle Dax – Hollow Man
I still don’t know why Danielle Dax wasn’t a huge pop star to start with, so that probably undermines my point.
You get the idea. It’s like that ‘My Sweet Lord’ thingy that ET was banging on about the other week. Genre names can be useful to introduce you to songs you might not otherwise hear, but when you find yourself avoiding songs based on a genre tag even when they sound like other songs that you like, well, that’s just bloody stupid.
