Yes, I agree that it's interesting to see what people with different tastes from me are into. And I admit that I can enjoy Safety Dance today, and marvel in the insane number of hooks it contains.I've liked a lot of sadchild's non-metal selections. I guess my brain isn't wired to like the heaviest stuff. That's what makes us unique, it's been really fun hearing what everyone else enjoys. I've picked up a few new songs to listen to along the way.
Many of sadchild's favorite songs are much harder and heavier than what I like; but I have an adversion to pop. So while I like a lot of soft, folky music, I focus more on music structure and instrumentals than on hooks.
Obviously, my preferences aren't any better than anyone else's, since I like a lot of less popular music. But I must say, some people have interesting and unexpected tastes.
