    I agree, but this isn't the first time this has happened! He seems to have a knack for ruining a song

    "Oh noes, people don't like the same music as me. Make iT STOP!!!"

    I hate country music. It is sentimental pap sung over the same old boring chords. Every. Damn. Time
    I don't keep banging on about it though.

    I don't think this is it at all. There are plenty of genres of music I don't care for but I can at least appreciate the talent. I don't think Sam Smith has any. That is all.

    Well how much talent does it take to sing, slightly off key, about your wife taking off with the mailman over three cowboy chords?

    Indeed, lack of talent exist in all genres. It's frustrating that such people can be so successful when so many truly talented people struggle. I am not one of those people by-the-way.

    Nor am I, but talent isn't the name of the game. It's all about marketing and image.

    Will people be listening to Don Williams in 25 years? Probably. Sam Smith? Maybe not.

    A quote from Morty Seinfeld that kind of sums up my view on the majority of current pop music.

    "Cheap fabric, and dim lighting. That's how you move merchandise."

    Whoa, how did they let you join TDPRI? Did you borrow someone else's cowboy hat?

    Why do we keep having "WTH, XXXXX has got no talent but they're rich and famous" threads like this one then? ;)

    For what's it's worth, my wife like Sam Smith. I'm not into the style.
