good thing that stuff is blocked in Germany.

but easily unblocked with the right firefox addon.

Hm.. is this better or worse than Taylor Swift?

It's a beautiful song, and she's a beautiful woman and a good performer (and an even better songwriter). notageek probably doesn't think she's attractive, though, since she's "white" and ridiculously wearing some Indian-looking garb. (She's Native American, by the way.)

I don't really know anything about Taylor Swift. Some country version of a Disney girl -- another Miley Cyrus -- as far as I know. I've probably heard her and don't know it. Like Justin Bieber, I've never heard him as far as I know.

beautiful? I disagree. It reminded me of all that hideous 'Schlager' music german bus drivers love to listen too - and nobody can get away from it. Bloody sadists.

if you are really drunk, singing 'Blau Blau Blau blüht der Enzian' can be highly entertaining. Not drinking enough so you remember that shameful episode the next day is not.

:lol:

Well, it's obviously pop music, and aimed at being a wedding song, so yeah, that's exactly what it is. I suppose if you threw an accordion in there it could be Schlager music. But you can also hear hints of the Celtic roots of our "country" music in the melody.

My main point was that our "country" music is now infused with pop, rock, blues, jazz, etc.

Akkordeon? You won't find that in Schlager - way too unusual. No, Schlager is one simple drum computer, doing 4/4 timing - or maybe 3/4 on a good day, a simple bass line, and some mind bongling primitive accords on an electric guitar. Maybe some dumb keyboard action. All adding up to a stupid melody and some brain dead candy sweet lyrics.

Btw, this is old school schlager, which shows a lot of the pattern described above, but the text is actually meaningful, critical and sad:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4sh6I6pTqD8

and this is todays abomination:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4u66LgCCvQ

I am in serious pain right now.

Oh that? That's just "Typical German Music" to me, and it sounds to me like it should have accordions and foot-stomping. But yeah, with its hints of your folk sound in it, it's probably the equivalent of the pop-oriented Shania Twain song I linked to (although Shania was better looking and a better vocalist, and Canadian).

I think it is more that she is a country artist, and that happens to be a song she did which qualifies as pop (there really are no country elements to the song).

And it really doesn't matter the era, 99.999% of all country music sucks (for example, some Cash does not suck).

To be honest, it is amazing more country fans haven't killed themselves.

Oh and I especially like the "calm" songs like Astral Projection - Still Dreaming and Klopfgeister - Melanchohol. It appears to me that those are kindof part of the genre, but not exactly typical, am I right?

Yes. Astral Projection was one of the main "founders" of the Goa sound in the early 90s.

As for recommendations, try both of Hallucinogen's albums "Twisted" & "The Lone Deranger" and Cosmosis's albums "Synergy" & "Psychedelica Melodica".

That's a very good starting point. I'll make a list of great tracks shortly for you.

Lately, I've been listening to a lot of chillout type stuff.

Here's my Pandora profile. It is how I listen to most of my music nowadays.

The stations 'Embracing the Tesla Coil' (House Dubstep Chillouts with a focus on more relaxing stuff), 'Americana' (Lots of southern rock and early country but sometimes blues/rock) and 'Smokey Mountains and Bluegrass' (mountain music) seem to get the most play. I made most of the stations in there with the exception of Chillout Radio, which I am listening to now.

Take a moment to look at her face. She's not particularly attractive.

The discussion was attractiveness (and I was merely pointing out that he hadn't actually looked).

That is a great phrase.

She looks like this girl I knew who was in a really bad car accident and they had to reconstruct her face. It looked good, but it was never quite right.
