    Just finished True detective.
    There was a scene with a song that I looked up, as I really liked it.
    Turns out that is was by Kris Kristofferson.
    I have always known about him but never really been a fan.



    Good song. Pretty far from my musical interest.
    The lyrics are interesting.

    Just wondering if any of you have some songs that you like by someone you don't like in general?

    Bruce Springsteen. I know he wrote many popular songs but I am not really familiar with him. A lot of my exposure to American music was from karaoke and this was one of his songs, but covered by a country singer. I really like her version.

    "Home for a Rest"/"Venice is Sinking" by Spirit of the West....some songs just....Send You, ya know?

    You aren't so much listening to it as you are immersed in first person perspective of an emotional response.

    (If this gets out irl, years of carefully mined street cred and projected masculinity will be thrown to the rape-wolves. Gay people in Saudi Arabia would have a better go at life than I would if certain circles I hang with discover my secret shameful joy.)

    One of my favorite songs of all time. Only Canadians know it though.

    I used to play it on my tour bus all the time. People fucking loved it.

    For anyone that doesn't know it...... Next time you are drunk and want to dance, put this on.

    I can't stand Eminem for the most part but I can help but kind of like this song.

    I think Everlast is a bit of a douche but this song is pretty catchy.

    Come together by the beatles.

    I know the beatles are super-popular but i get a boy band type vibe from them i just cant get into most of their music.

    more of a rolling stones type of guy.

    Sorta feel the same way, but his third album (MMLP) is just classic. his last 4 albums have been horse shit.

    "Grace Too" in my view, is the most uplifting Hip song. It helped me during times of self-doubt back in the day.

    Sorry to get off topic but any over-thirty Canadian Sherdog posters ever listen to a radio skit called the "The Champ?"
