Unpopular Opinions about Music

I like Black Widow, too.

And I even kind of liked Iggy's song "Team", which came out last year, and I find her friendship with Demi Lovato oddly endearing.

I've never understood why (posthumously) Janis Joplin has been endlessly hailed as the Female Voice of the 60's instead of Cass Elliot? I mean, IMO, Cass Elliot had a much more textured, subtle and  richer voice and could adapt herself to an infinite variety of styles while it was was Rock and Blues  only for  Miss Joplin. I guess I'm saying I can take or leave Miss Joplin's songs okay( yes, even "Me and Bobby McGee") whereas I adore virtually everything Cass Elliot ever sang in except those Mamas&Papas tunes where they stupidly decided to shunt her to a virtual nonentity.

James Blunt is highly underrated and I'll fight anyone who says otherwise.

Ok, I won't. I have the arm strength of a noodle.

I can't believe I missed this comment. I absolutely agree and I am especially over all the "too cool for school" people who now try to act like You're Beautiful was the most awful song ever, like they weren't fully bawling their eyes and singing loudly to it back in the day. I feel like it's now become the cool thing to hate on James Blunt and act like his songs were the cheesiest thing every and I call bullshit on that. Goodbye My Lover came up on my shuffle some months ago and damn if that song still doesn't get me.

Her rendition of "Dream a Little Dream" is the quintessential version, IMO. 

Love the Mamas and Papas, though I think "Creeque Alley" has it all over the dreadfully overplayed "California Dreamin'".

I absolutely adore Bonfire Heart.

Yeah, James Blunt is pretty underrated. "Goodbye My Lover" is a tear-jerker.

I just wanted to post that I think Drake is one of most egregious purveyors of the Madonna/Whore trope in modern music. If you listen to any song by Drake that's about love or sex, the female is either the most wonderful woman in theor she's a conniving succubus who is out to break his heart. It's very strange that so many women like Drake given how he seems to view women. Even when you look at his personal life -- which is a little judgmental, but I'm moreso talking about a pattern than anything -- Drake seems to enjoy the strippers/Hooters girls/porn stars in life.
