Yep, you made my point better than I did. The contrast between all the Iglesias/Timberlake dance boy feel and the subject matter couldn't be more atrociously done. Even the few Thomas defenders here have to admit the 'I wanna do your girlfriend' moment might be most disgusting pop music moment......well ever.

I've learned that there are tons of disgusting pop moments such as the Wyclef/ Bono duet that no one is immune to bad choices. Not so much hate for me to hold it against them and their entire career.

Though he sucks, no one is forcing you to listen to that shit song. Is it so hard to extend your arm and push the button for a new channel?

I think the problem here is everyone is just pissed that he is doing well (through shit). So, therefore I believe everyone should stop saying things like "I am happy with what I have", because it is obvious most of us aren't.

I'm not holding anything against Rob Thomas regarding his career. I'm just discussing this one song. Sure, Bono and everyone else has made bad choices, but this would be the equivalent of Bono ditching his band and deciding to sort of pretend he was Michael Jackson. New Day sucks, but it's nowhere near as bad of a choice as Lonely No More is.

yes...YES.

how can any of you...ANY OF YOU ever complain about how shitty "pop music" is, and how awful the state of mainstream radio currents finds itself in, when you not only fail to unleash verbal attacks on such ridiculous phonies such as the corporate shit that matchbox twenty/rob thomas represents, but go on to - get this - PROMOTE?!!?!?

HOW DO YOU 7USTIFY THAT?!!?!?!

it's absolute madness.

how would you know?

i have a great attitude, except when it comes to mindless soul-destroying music that dumbs the masses and appears to endorse the re-election of thieves in the white house.

perhaps i'm getting a little a head of myself here.

but i firmly believe that pop culture (and matchbox twenty very unfortunately manifests itself as such to the "25-40 year old working class") is making the public stupid.

i should be careful not to paint anyone in this thread as such, rather, i'm trying to generalize what i perceive to be a very large problem in today's society.

M20, although they not be my thing can write a good pop tune every once in awhile. He's gotten the attention of Santana and Willie Nelson.

But I saw the video for this solo song and asked myself, why is Rob trying to be Ricky Martin?

I just wanted to point out that I have never heard of this Rob Thomas person, still less listened to any of his music.

Mindless pop music has been around for decades. I think if anything that it was worse in the '80s and parts of the '70s. Or maybe I have just become more adept at avoiding it, I don't know.

Were they though? You trace the genre of bland corporate safe rock back to the '70's or even earlier, arguably. Not that I'm defending Matchbook Twenty, mind.

i understand what you're saying, finance guy.

can you list some examples though?

the reason i called them pioneers is because only the past little while has the industry really put their dirty fingers on who gets big and who doesn't. it's my believe they're only big because someone thinks they should be - not because of any "talent" they allegedly possess.

and i'm sorry, i should have made it clear - i love mindless pop. 7ustin timberlake, kylie, etc., etc. is fun.

i only have trouble with loser artists who actually believe they're contributing something more than throwaway pop.

I would be thinking of people like the Bay City Rollers, David Essex and the Osmonds, for example. When 'Top of the Pops' (a live UK based pop music show) show re-runs of performances from their archives, I always think the 1970's ones look the most ridiculous.

Maybe 1 out of 10 of the 1970's performances they show is any way decent, when they run performances from the 1990's for example, the ratio tends to be much higher.

We sometimes think of the 70's as being a great era for music (Zeppelin, etc) but it wasn't really like that.
