So that's not for everyone? I guess so.
I never said that, my point is simply I dont have the right to tell another what is good and what isn't when it comes to music and I really have no intention of letting another decide that for me either. There is no right and wrong for me here, I am not going to debate whether my feelings are valid or not, I am not offended by the quality of other's stuff. With as much has my music has brought to my life if they are doing the same awesome. For me it isn't a competition, if I decide that I dont like something I simply dont listen to it or tune it out.
Trust me there is a lot of stuff I dislike, in fact 100's of songs on my ipod, phone, kindle, in my computer, on cd and on tape, right here, right now. Denise and I shared a lot when we came to music but we did have our differences, often I would endure stuff I really dislike but it wasn't a problem and surely I was not going to try and push her to only listen to things I liked. Now I just dont take them off my devices because I listen to random all the time and every so often just for second I hear a song and I feel like she's still around. (but I do skip it in short order like I would do every time she wasn't in the room. ).
Those songs may not be good in my view, maybe they are not of high enough quality for you either but that foesn't change the fact they something good for me. I need nothing more from the music I make or listen to, I have no problem with it.
