Here's some for me:
The White Stripes
Sweet Child 'o Mine
i knew that must be soon
i think you got there first as well!
I tried getting into them but ultimately found it quite unlistenable
i.e. i don't really listen to them anymore but still think *oh yeah i really like deerhoof*
I wrote about why in my lame blog:
It's not a beheading of a tourist.
you fucking tourist beheader
Despite the highly eloquent critique
("It sounds in fact like Axl’s ego consuming the entire latter half of the song like an ever balooning [sic] pile of turd being vomited from a faulty toilet. Shit, shit and more shit. In conclusion: Shit".)
I'm going to have to state computer says no.
Now I love it.
Eltham, sort your mate out
for a little work.
A very shit, disappointing reward...
That logo right down the bottom is absolutely hilarious
miserable alt country records.
got very bored of them, and of Jack White's face.
What do you mean you convinced yourself you liked them and then realised you didn't? Is this the schmindie way of saying you went off them? I'm pretty sure this is the schmindie way of saying you went off them.
but it takes you ages to actually realise you don't really like them / it at all.
Like Arctic Monkeys for example. Or marzipan.
I haven't heard the latest Arctic Monkeys record though and I didn't really care for the second one. Am I fooling myself? I don't feel like I am
That's the point of the thread. Cool huh?
That's not a thing
You liked them, but then you went off them, you didn't think you liked them
Marzipan comes across like honey’s ego consuming the entire latter half of the almond aftertaste like an ever balooning [sic] pile of turd being vomited from a faulty toilet. Shit, shit and more shit. In conclusion: Shit"
Admit it, you used to like mulled wine, The White Stripes, Sweet Child 'o Mine and Tom Jones but then you went off them
Have you never got carried away with something because of atmosphere/hype/excitement, and then questioned yourself and in a more honest moment thought "nah, they/it were always shite".
I did it with cigars, bat for lashes and sin city (film).
Actually maybe this isn't a thing and I have over-thought what might be quite simple. Maybe andyvine is right. Oh god, what else might he be right about?
The moment of realisation
Look at it, it's beautiful
for being somewhat bizarre.
You're blinded by the light of truth
MARZIPAN's A PRIVATE MATTER,
I like loads of similar bands, and loads that have been strongly influenced by them, but i just can't listen to Ian Curtis & co.
I can't remember what it's called. I'm thinking baclava but I know it's not baclava.
It's sesame-seedy and honey-y and crumbly powder stuff.
I thought I liked it but I don't.
That's the stuff.
it's cold, slimy and gross... but it's good for you so I still eat it
Christmas can fuck off. Too many years kidding myself I liked the whole shitheap.
Can you see what nonsense you're talking?
Man, why's everything on DiS have to be one giant argument?
You didn't convince yourself you liked it then realised you didn't like it, you just changed your mind
I liked it when I was a kid like every kid, so forget that bit.
From about 15 years ago I didn't like it but kidded myself that I did.
This year I realised I actually hate the thing.
You're all coming to the same realisation
you're just being stubbon. Like a mule. Or Jim Davidson.
Who you going to listen to, that guy 's shouty nonsense or Si_Badvibes' reasoned, nuanced persuasion of himself?
But then I have some beer and hummus and remember how fucking ace it is.
Though admittedly it was more that my family convinced me that I liked it, and it took me until my mid-teens to realise that actually it bored me rigid.
