They change every two weeks or so. And I think a lot of the time I have songs that I love listening to, but I don’t actually consider favorite songs?
I think my favorite-favorite songs are —
But lately the songs I’m most enjoying listening to are —
(That’s the mix in my car, plus some goofy stuff.)

Music snobs are generally assholes who disrespect the target audience of the music they’re slagging off more than they disrespect the artists, and therefore I think music snobs in general are pointless and have nothing to offer any discussion of music, art, or culture. If you think ANY musical genre or act is shitty based on who you see as its target audience, then you’ve already invalidated all of your opinions.

What Makes You Stop Believing (One Direction vs. Journey) by No Saturday Night Surgery
“Pop Danthology 2012” - Daniel Kim
(I deleted the captions because if you WEREN’T alive in 1999, you aren’t legally supposed to be on Tumblr, and you definitely should not be reading a random 25-year-old stranger’s blog.)
I have had this goddamn song stuck in my head for like six months, and I think I heard it twice, eleven years ago.
i think it’s hilarious when people get distraught over the comparison between one direction and the beatles.
you realize that if you took the beatles and fast forwarded them fifty years until now, they’d be one direction to a tee? they were just a uk-based boy band who wore preppy clothes and sang cute pop songs and had a huge fan-base of mostly women who screeched every time they breathed. sound familiar?
i keep hearing that one direction could never have the lasting prevalence that the beatles have maintained through the decades, but can you think about that for a second? in one fourth of the time, one direction has became far more successful. they’ve broken records that the beatles never even put in place. and they’ve only been around for two years! they’re going to go a lot further. when they’ve broken records left and right, i’m not sure how people can say they won’t hold a lasting relevance.
and as for their musical relevance, they’ve only put on one album thus far. the songs the beatles produced in their early stages were just as artificially pop-based as one direction’s music seems to us now. they have long careers ahead of them in which their music will guaranteed mature along with them, and will take on more responsibility of the writing as time goes on.
it’s not an insult to compare the beatles to one direction. it’s an honor the other way around. and that’s coming from a huge beatles stan.
