Main Question or Discussion Point
Not all threads need to be constructive. So tell me your worst, most annoying music out there. What tune makes you rip your hair out??
I had to suffer through a performance that was a review of his most known songs for the sake of offering "culture" to the students I was teaching last summer. Thankfully, nobody realized that the lemonade and iced teas the faculty were drinking in the back row while chaperoning them were actually whiskey sours and long island iced teas. I finally asked the two faculty who were teaching music and theater in the program if all of his songs were the same melody with different lyrics. They nodded in agreement and were as tortured by the experience as the science and math faculty. If this year's program involves anything by him, I'm volunteering to be the person who drives the smaller van to transport sick kids home early rather than chaperoning on the buses that have to stay the whole time.Everything by Andrew Lloyd Webber. (I mean his entire output, I don't know or care if he ever wrote a song called "Everything").
I guess every family has its black sheep. His father William Lloyd Webber was a teenage musical prodigy, organist, composer, and eventually teacher at two of the main London music colleges (and his music is probably about due for a revival, after being completely forgotten). One of WLW's often-repeated criticisms of his students' compositions was "why did you write 6 pages when you could have said as much in 6 bars".I finally asked the two faculty who were teaching music and theater in the program if all of his songs were the same melody with different lyrics.

Yes, it's too bad. He might have made something out of himself.I guess every family has its black sheep.
He could have turned out like his brother Julian (the cellist), for instance.Yes, it's too bad. He might have made something out of himself.
Fortunately, half of the videos have been removed from the internet. Unfortunately, the one that sounded like a room full of cats scratching a room full of chalk boards is gone, so I have no evidence for the cat reference.....
I predict that in the next 5 million years, none of your selections will make it onto the billboard top 100,000. Unless of course cats take over the world.
