Working Class Dogs, High School and Amy Winehouse (A music post)
Since I am a grown ass man I am finding it hard to get into the “High School Musical 2” album.
I grew up in the age of Prince and Billy Idol.
I like my pop stars a little less clean.
Thank God for Amy Winehouse!
She’s a 24 year old British Soul Singer who writes her own songs.
Her biggest hit in the States is “Rehab” shown below.
Amy is currently in rehab…
Some other music stuff:
HSM2 sold over 600k copies last week. Are kids really buying that album or are their parents buying it for them? And I think the target market for the High School Musical series is NOT high schoolers but middle schoolers. Right? I know when I went to high school anything with a Disney label was truly not cool. Have kids changed that much?
HSM2 showcases the problem with Top40 radio today. Do you realize that none of the songs off of that album is in the top 20. Know why? Because radio won’t play them.
Dig this radio dudes. I know HSM1&2 are silly. But it’s what the kids want. PLAY THE SONGS! That’s why no one listens to music on the radio anymore. Instead of listening to your audience yo instead try to forcefeed them your tastes. This Christmas MP3 players will be so cheap everyone will have one. And then you die. Happy Holidays! Chartreuse.
Here’s a song from HSM2 (because something tells me you haven’t heard it!)
Now if all this new music stuff is too much for you here’s something to think about.
Rick Springfield is 58 today. Yeah, really.Explore posts in the same categories: amy winehouse, Billy Idol, High School Musical, High School Musical 2, Prince, radio, Rick Springfield, Top 40, YouTube
