By the gods I hate K-pop.
« on: September 20, 2017, 12:59:00 PM »
My school doesn't have a bell to start class. They blare K-pop. And they blare the same song every period all day - for a month!! Then they change to another dreadful song. Last month the song was endurable, but since last week they've been playing this horrid 'boy group' ballad that is testing my sanity. And the class speaker is right behind my desk. If I leave the classroom to escape it I just encounter it blaring in the hallway.

Why would a school do this? The teachers, never mind plenty of the students, can't be happy listening to such crud several times every day.

I didn't think I could dislike K-pop any more than I already did.

I was wrong. :-[

Just an anecdote, but there seems to be something in common with these stories involving who is playing the music and the person taking exception...I can't quite put my finger on it.

Moral of the story: It's a global world and we've moved overseas while back home things are becoming more diverse. Part of living and working with different people is that they're going to like different music and we can't get upset about it.

Quote
The most common point of contention is music. In May 1997 outfielders Chad Curtis and Kevin Mitchell tussled over Mitchell's choice of rap music in the Cleveland Indians'clubhouse, a fight that left Curtis with a bruised thumb and got Mitchell released four days after the incident. The next summer lefty Randy Johnson tussled with first baseman David Segui about the volume of the music in the Seattle Mariners' clubhouse,leaving Segui with a sprained right wrist.

There are other ways to settle disputes about music. Last March the Expos called a meeting in spring training because some players thought Latin music was dominating the clubhouse.(Fourteen members of the Expos major league roster were Latino.)For the Buccaneers the music in the weight room is chosen according to an NFL seniority list that is posted there and inthe dressing area. (The first tiebreaker is the order in whichplayers were drafted.)

One thing that bums me out about Kpop is oftentimes the lyrics are bad; doesn't sound like poetry.

That's something I don't miss about public schools--the way schools would BLAST AT TOP VOLUME some annoying song. I swear there's like a 10-CD set by Annoying Young Korean Girl named "Now That's What I Call Annoying Music," and every public school here is required by law to have 5 copies of it.



At this one rural school I taught at, when you walked into the bathrooms a sensor would switch on a recording of some stupid ESL tape. So you'd be dropping a deuce or taking a whiz and you'd hear stuff like "Hello how are you? I'm fine and you? I'm very happy today do you like bread?" Because as well all know, Korean kids can learn languages subliminally while going to the bathroom.

Maclean, do you have the Shazam app or can you install it?  Please use it and tell us what the song is.

That would be preferable. The anthem is actually quite nice.

Fine.

Congratulations on growing old and growing out of touch. Your music is passe and no one cares about it anymore. The new stuff just sounds like noise. Now you know how your parents felt.

But what if lots of modern music is great? And it's just Kpop is shit? :shocked:
