    I know you're just being all impish and Neo-y and shit, but I certainly never said I dislike Adele. In fact- to some degree or other- I like all of the singers you mentioned. It's just that these songs don't need to be hammered into my skull fifteen times a day.

    Also, why exactly Katy Perry's "Wide Awake" sounded so familiar bugged me until I realized she basically ripped off Lenny Kravitz' "Fly Away".

    I actually like Robyn. Like I said, I could have listed Kimbra. I could have added Lana Del Rey. Feist. Florence Welch. The amount of female talent out right now boggles the mind.

    I would NOT include Lana Del Rey in that list, but that's just me.

    You and every other blogger out there lol. Personally, I like her and I think she's a cool chick but I understand why people criticize her the way they do. All that to say, if you dislike one talented female artist (in this case, Adele), there are literally a dozen more out there who you might grow to enjoy and appreciate. It's a great time for female musicians in general.

    I get how repetitive and unimaginative songs some of these songs are, but don't be a bottom and then bitch about getting effed in the A.

    Unless you are a barista (or whatever these are called these days) why can't listen to last,fm/spotify/your own music?

    None of those are options because my car only has the AM/FM radio that came standard. I should probably reprogram its presets to include the college radio stations or something.

    Provided you have an iPod or smart phone, why not pick up something like this: FM transmitter or this: Tape Deck Adapter or this: Wireless Transmitter.

    Not vouching either of those specific brand/items, but adapters can be found for almost nothing.

    Adele fans are awful. The perceived earnestness of her music makes them think she is somehow different and thus critically better than the other pop stars ("she sings with real soul", "her lyrics are profound", "she can't rely on her image, so its her talent that makes her famous", etc...). At least with Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj, etc... almost everybody knows its just dumb, catchy pop music enjoyed simply for fact that its dumb, catchy pop music.

    True beyond true.

    Unless you mee those ditzes that actually believe Perry's "Firework" was written for them to help them feel better about their sad life.

    Never seen a picture of Nicki Minaj but her name annoys the fuck out of me. Beyonce and Katy Perry are hot though.

    Adele is a good singer, I quite like some of her songs but she needs a good fucking to get over this lad who's dumped her.

    Shite: Lady GaGa, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Kelly Clarkson (tolerable). Beyonce has done some OK stuff IIRC but she seems to have disappeared from the face of the earth, Adele has definite potential with some more varied lyrics. Taylor Swift is not a name I recognise, is she the bint who did that Call me Maybe thing? She's shite if so.
