    I can't stand the original "Blue". Horrible. I've heard it sooooo many times the year it came out. But: take your prefered tool to legally aquire mp3s ( ) and look for "Audiosmog featuring Tobias Schlegel - Blue". It's a cover version. It rocks.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    I liked 'em. I've only heard two of their songs,
    though. Blue, and another one of their singles.

    Anyway, they were POP because they were POPular.
    POP culture changes every two years, anyway. It's
    a pretty stupid genre, I think. Nirvana was even
    considered POP, way back when.

    Pop - repetitive music and (quite often) meaningless lyrics.

    About the clips, as far as I'm concerned, MTV is what has ruined music.

    >>and musically it's quality music... etc...<<

    Eiffel 65 != quality music

    are you a musician? are you studying theory? you might be a hell of a listener and have your opinion, but you cannot describe a group as repetitive until you've analyzed their work, which i would find hard to believe since you have such generalized opinions about 'mtv' and your scoffing.

    Remember when MTV used to be great? Remember
    Beavis and/or Butthead? I used to like MTV, back
    in the days when bands weren't put together by
    the music industry (you know, that short period
    between about 1990 - 1996).

    Now they got Carson-freakin'-Daley. I hate that
    guy. I hate is stupid fingernail polish, I hate
    his dumb sticky-hair, and his show is terrible.
    The whole audience is filled with 13 year old
    girls who think he's 'cute.'

    I hate the music that gets played on MTV, too.
    Eminem, Mariah Carey (she used to be so sweet,
    now she's icky), Destiny's Child, Limp Bizkit
    etc. Oh, and I hate how all the rock-bands wear
    Leather Pants. They're too shiny.

    Sometimes I wished I ruled the world. Eh, at
    least I get comfort in knowing that it will
    eventually happen.

    seems to me like you were given a good idea of what is righteous then... might you wish you had the simple pleasures of children who weren't yet involved in the relatively unshiny world of our [american] capitalistic society? i for one feel to embrace my and our youth to it's full extent, to thynk only when we might need to, else just relax the while and share... the more we share the more we have...

    you give a mouse a cookie...... what milk do you have?

    Yes as a matter of fact I am. I have been playing the guitar for around 2 and half years. And of course I am a hell of a listener. My "generalised opinions" come from the fact I know decent music when I hear it. I don't write off bands until I hear them. I have heard Eiffel 65 and I don't think they are that great. I'm sorry, but I don't.

    My MTV scoffing as you put it, comes from the fact that it is complete ****ing bull****. It is commercial music pure and simple. The majority of bands/groups can't write a note of music, and it's all about some pre-fabricated image to suck you in and get your hard earned cash. None of it is real, it doesn't make you think, and it doesn't add anything to music.

    To quote Bono from U2
    'Pop music often tells you everything is OK, while rock music tells you that it's not OK, but you can change it. There's a defiance in rock music that gives you a reason to get out of bed in the morning. Most pop music doesn't make you want to get out of bed, I'm sorry to say. It puts you to sleep.'
    >>i for one feel to embrace my and our youth to it's full extent, to thynk only when we might need to, else just relax the while and share... the more we share the more we have... <<

    You are talking ****. So if we all just submit then we'll all get along fine? You are starting to act like a sheep.
