Just to Prove a Point

Your Blogmeister’s Desk

Continuing with what has become a recurring theme in this space, I have created a public YouTube playlist of some of my favorite club music that I can think of just off the top of my head.  Like I’ve been saying, the quality of Generation X club music is the best ever, it blows the boomers out of the water, and I think it’s going to be a very long time before a future generation surpasses it.  So far, I don’t see anything of this quality and this caliber from Millennial club music, and in fact, they don’t do nightclubs like we did.

(I can just hear some of you saying or thinking right now:  “Blogmeister, you’ve got to me kidding.  A song simply called “Horny,” with the repetitive lyric, “I’m horny, I’m horny horny horny, so horny, I’m horny horny horny…” is quality?”  And the answer is yes.)

These songs range in years from 1993 to 2012.  A few of them some of you might recognized as pop remixes, but most of them are not.  And, because I know I’m going to get the question, it sounds like in “Born Slippy” by Underworld that one of the lyrics is “nigger nigger white thing” repeated a few times.  Actually, it’s “mega mega white thing.”

Another point I’m making here is that people like me who think this is quality music will be running the country in twenty years.  Now do you get my greater thesis?  Or are you praying for divine intervention?

Are you Andrew Sullivan’s alter ego today? WTF?

Club music is what guys have to endure to pick up a trashy slut for a one nighter. All of it is crap and always has been. The 70’s had the disco crap, 80’s had its pop remix crap, and 90’s had slightly better (due to better technology) crap. Note the common feature. Actually calling it music is overly generous – it’s trashy whore noise. Music is something you pay to hear performed live and/or listen to with headphones. Trashy whore noise can be made on your pc.

Hey kid, I was just thinkin’. It strikes me that your club ‘music’ attempts to blend the fun with the romantic, thus destroying both. Try them separately, as ne’er shall the twain meet (ask yer wife).

Fun:

Romantic:

Serious:

Good luck with the memories mood though. They get bigger and longer as time goes by.

I have the first and fourth in my digital music collection. Really, my musical tastes are very wide and varied, but I lean heavily on classic country and Gen X dance.

And, it looks like you deserve a gold star for figuring what’s going on. Midlife jitters. Yes, the memories will get bigger and longer, what they’ll also get is more selective.

Be careful, selectivity may be illegal next week, once SJWs look it up in the dictionary.

Selectivity sounds a whole lot like discrimination.

Seriously, “you have discriminating tastes” was once a compliment.

I have never set foot in any kind of nightclub in my entire 40 years on this planet.And from reading many accounts over the years of the sordid behavior that apparently goes on in them,I feel vindicated (and have no regrets) in my steadfast refusal to ever participate in that kind of lifestyle.I know I may very well sound like a boring square and a fuddy-duddy,but being a square and a fuddy-duddy has kept me out of A LOT of trouble,unlike several people that I know personally who have been “harmed” by their “clubbing indiscretions”.

The only person listed on your YouTube channel that I’ve ever heard of is Carly Rae Jepsen,who,I must admit,is pretty cute,if not talented.

As for my own taste in music,let’s just say that I have a fondness for British naval songs and sea shanties,among other similarly related forms of music:

This rendition of Drunken Sailor is the best I’ve ever heard, I was whistling along. I’m now on my third time repeating it.

One my co-workers had almost the same kind of laugh a very short time ago, what he was laughing at, we still don’t know.

I could have seen me going to clubs with this kind of music when I was in my 20s, but I didn’t.

It's your dime, spill it. And also...NO TROLLS ALLOWED~!
