Quote:I certainly can't make any judgements because I don't have a song on the radio. Huh? Since when did this matter? Record executives all across the country have never had a song on the radio yet they judge songs all the time. Program directors sit in rooms listening to music making judgments on whether the songs are going to show up on their playlist without ever having a song on the radio. You need to come up with something better than that bruh. Quote:I like all types of country, commercial and alt-country. I love Trace Adkins, Carrie Underwood, and Brooks and Dunn, Alan Jackson, Vince Gill, but I also love Lucinda and The Old Crowe Medicine Show too. If it's got that 'twang', that is all it needs.I'm not a country fan by any sense of the word. But when you can get me to listen to a song by Tim McGraw (Live Like You Were Dying. Excellent song) and have me like it, THAT is a feat for the books folks.

Quote:I'm not a country fan by any sense of the word.The best chances in country today are with a family song that sounds country or an ignorant song that sounds rock. You got something against ignorant songs?

Quote:I'll say that I'm not a 'music snob.' I just don't like certain songs, but I respect anybody who can get a song on the radioThat is where we differ. I respect quality only. If success comes without quality in the music, there is no respect. A lot of bums make it in music. What am I suuposed to do, respect hacks and bums because they are good bullshitters or have pretty faces?

Songwriters are to record companies, like Techies are to sales people.

You're competing for forwards with the very people you may have little respect for. YOU are in the same fishbowl we all are in. Don't piss in your neighbour's pool. For some reason, you want to judge artists (who's music you don't like), as bums unworthy of your respect. Why does not liking someone else's music 'cause you to throw negativity around? You just sound angry, and most of all unapproachable. I wonder how important good bullshitting and pretty faces are really? Perhaps I should remove my avatar picture? Or am I ugly enough for your standards? I am complete agreement with Chits. I have great respect for anyone that gets stuff on the radio. In fact, I have respect for anyone who takes the time to post here, AND/OR create whatever kind of music they want to. Including your stuff HJ. steve

Quote:Justin Timberlake - SexyBackBlack Eyed Peas - My HumpsI absolutely love those songs. These were big teams of gifted creators on both of those songs. I would dearly love to be that awesome a singer/producer/engineer - all of it.. Are they great songs, of course not. But imagine the joy and the happiness those 2 songs have brought to millions of people around the world.steve
