Music should not be classified as Easy Listening if it makes me want to die. Easy Listening is by far the most subjective of the music classifications. Things like Classic Rock or Classical fall into easy temporal categories. We can look back and say something is a One Hit Wonder or Heavy Metal. Even Yacht Rock is more descriptive than Easy Listening since it's so easy to imagine oneself on a yacht with a boat drink in hand listening to Loggins and Messina. A more descriptive category for Easy Listening would be Sad Rock.
It's good to know that Easy Listening depresses other people too. Now I don't feel so alone.ReplyDelete
