    "Ebony and Ivory" if we are going with stomach-turning duets.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    I was talking to someone last week and they brought this video up as a moment where he jumped the shark.

    He had some terrific stuff, though.

    OK, here's a video where, to me, the "moves" are on par with Mr. Squier's.

    However, DIFFERENT RESULT!

    Pretty lame to talk about cringe worthy music. If you don't like it, don't listen to it. People like all different types of music.

    Are you saying this is a cringeworthy thread?

    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    I disagree completely about album sales being the most objective way to judge music. If an album sells well, I think history has shown that it has more to do with its marketability than the quality of the album.

    I don't think we are arguing that at all.

    I showed you where Taylor Swift received critical success. You made fun of the sources.

    So what you've boiled it down to is that you've decided that since a market consists of teenage girls and lame media likes her, it is therefore not good.

    How convenient.

    Music is about taste. You don't like her. But we can't be blinded by our own taste to say that something is bad.

    I don't like Metallica. I would also tell you they are the best at what they do and are pioneers. I can make that observation by looking at the people who they appeal to and realizing that that group judges them to be very good.

    Sell a lot or not, something can be good.

    Swift sells a lot and her stuff is good. If you like pop music, you can't deny her appeal.

    She writes her own stuff- she isn't some marketing creation. To be that young, write the amount of stuff that she has and have it sell that well- that takes talent. Maybe it's too fun and young and feminine, okay. I get it.

    You're missing the point.

    I probably have the highest amount of praise for Taylor Swift of anyone in this thread, and I believe a large chunk of her sales is due to how she's marketed. She came from money, was modeling, and knew someone in the music scene before she was performing original songs. Had her teeny-bopper country songs been released on a small label, it still might have blown up, but only after her contract was sold to a larger label for more marketing.
