but it is a personal preference
there's always gonna be these hipsters listening to weird ass underground music. there's no such thing as good taste in music. we all like what we like
Well considering The Godfather was based on a book, probably that one would be its counterpart...
i've spent like my entire life gaming and i gotta say y'all have a shit taste. only pc games and story games with no gameplay
Lol batman the dark knight on 4, says it all
Taste is purely subjective. The idea of "good taste" is retarded.
But it IS about personal preference, what is it that you dont understand about it?
Maybe you understand it but you just dont like it and wish it wasn't true.
taste is entirely subjective
music counterpart is probably beethoven's 9th, book counterpart is harder i'd maybe go with Lolita or Brothers Karamazov
If you suggest 10 random tracks to a random user and he likes 9 out of 10, no matter if he enjoys those music genres or not.
Same with books.
edt. Really? You did watch 12 angry men and not LOTR:return of the king?
Wow, i couldnt imagine ppl like this exist :D
edt2. top10 movies in no particular order (i am lying - fight club is #1 movie of all time) :
- godfather 1
- godfather 2
- fight club
- schindler's list
- city of god
- blade runner (original one)
- smthn from tarantino (hard to say jsut 1 movie, its probably django, hateful8, reservoir dogs or inglorious bastards)
(if you count gf1/gf2 as single movie - then add star wars ep5 i guess)
not seen LOTR the return of the king?
this post is so shallow, you are probably too young for me to insult you, gl and hf on your journey
There are experts in rock music, experts in Rap, Experts in EDM, Experts in Classic music, so no, there is no good music and bad music, just tastes...
IMDB "movie experts" are literally no better than Marvel fanboys
good = things you like for yourself
bad= things u dislike
dont let ppl tell you what u have to listen or not
Music counterpart might be Radiohead, great production value, interesting and innovative songwriting.
Same with Björk.
Idk about books, but there is no such thing in music. Ask some of the biggest musicians throughout history and every time you'll get a different answer
personal preference. if it makes you feel good, thats what your about. dont ever compare your taste with anyone else
the only things widely considered "good taste" are classics, no matter the medium. same for music, books, films, whatever. other than that, there's no such thing.
Book: Stuff like Ulysses or The Brothers Karamazov
Music: Not really a correct "taste" in music since there are so many different genres
You are a sheep my friend
No such thing as objectively good taste. It varies from person to person and is highly subjective. Also a big factor is what kinda music circles you talk to.
For example a punk nerd would say you got a good taste if you list him some NY hardcore or dbeat bands. And whilist to that punk nerd that is "good taste". It would not be the same for a fan of indie rock. To that person math rock and midwest emo among others would be an example of good taste. This goes on and on.
As a musician myself (drums), I consider a "good" taste in music to be music that inspires me to play more, learn more about my craft and improve as a musician, as well as stimulating my imagination in ways that most music doesn't. I can't do that listening to radio music, which helped lead me, along with a good friend who is a talented musician himself, into prog rock, fusion and metal.
For me godfather is boring, acting is bad bcs too much tryharding. It's about taste
Good books are things penned by authors like Vonnegut, Huxley, Tolkien, Dostoyevsky, etc
Bad books are things penned by the likes of J K Rowling. I like Harry Potter but it is objectively poorly written. Meaning you can like objectively bad art, but it's still bad
You can judge books and movies very similarly, with the differences being things like "was the opening paragraph answering a prime question or establishing something important?"
As for music, that is actually hard to answer. Objectively, rap isn't good music. Simplified beats does not equate to musical talent, just like most pop. Being good at a single aspect of music also does not equate to good music (a good singer does not alone make a song good, good lyrics do not alone make a song good). Music is a sum of it's parts.
Only plebs will disagree that there is such a thing as objectively good or bad art in any form, but I can give good recommendations if you're actually serious.
Edit: to clarify, I like some bad stuff too. My taste includes some of it. I even actively dislike some objectively good art. However, I do enjoy plenty of good stuff!
Can't really go wrong with Sigur Ros
Best literature I have ever read: À la recherche du temps perdu
Dream of the Red Chamber
One Hundred Years of Solitude
Brave New World
you can't directly compare movies to music as you did, because they are entirely different form of art. music is much more subjective, whereas if a movie is really good - it'll probably be enjoyed by 80% of those who've seen it(anecdotal speculations but have to make a point) music is rather impossible to categorize so easily because the spectrum is so wide compared to movies. people develop different tastes to sounds throughout their lives and experiences, so there is really no direct comparison in search of the "godfather" type of song, it's individual. songs like Aphex Twin - Rhubarb and Frank Ocean - Seigfried grant me some form of inner melancholical peace that other music rarely can. if im working or chilling , most likely rap/trap/whatever in the background. if i'm partying, i like my parties dirty yet pure, like Herrensauna type vibe. so it all fucking depends on the person and circumstance, sadly there's no objective "best song". you could say its some Queen song or whatever, but it'll still remain as just your own damn opinion.
You can feel it. If you couldnt feel it, that means you have low level music taste. I like avant-garde music. But its not popular caz its too high level music for normal people. IQ relative
It's entirely subjective and so are your reasons for it not being so
Okay first off it is preference. So stop rambling and no if you ask a group of film lovers their favorite movie you would get many different answers. Because of categories
You'll get a lot of godfather yes because news flash it's a fucking great movie
Someone into space fantasy is more likely to say star wars/trek
Someone into horror would say the here's Johnny movie
So on so forth.
Having a "Good Taste" in something would be if you agree with someone else's preference
Like a metal head would say to another metal head they have a good taste in music
To the larger audience they don't like it
It's only preference nothing more nothing less
All of this is entirely subjective.
You just made the dumbest thread of the week.
rap = good taste
cardi b = bad taste
rappers that boomers make fun of = bad taste
country = bad taste
edm/dubstep = bad taste
romance = bad taste
books advertising # of pages = bad taste
fandoms 997/100 = bad taste
Subjective, and pointless to argue. Your movies example is not true. That's only your opinion on the subject. You'll define everyone who consider themselves "really into movies" and prefer Avengers as "not into movies" people. Which is fine, you can have your own opinion and judge any movie or person. But in the end you'll have to keep it for yourself and others who share the same opinion
"If you asked people who are only mildly interested in films what their favorite film is, you would get a large variety of answers. However, if you asked people who are very interested in films what their favorite film is, you will probably get many similar answers, specifically one of these: "
Have you ever asked those "midly interested" persons about their taste? Because I'm sure they would name some films from that list, and no, the more a group of people explore a medium, the more answers you will get, it's natural
The equivalent to that list would probably be a mix of accepted classic rock albums from the 70s-90s, but I don't think either would be the "pinnacle" of the medium according to someone who is REALLY into movies/music (what does it even mean?)
Music is definitely harded to judge than books and movies because it's more abstract, despite being consumed a lot more by your average person, manly because they treat it as a mindless activity (ie: I'm listening to this playlist while I'm doing this/working out/studying/playing)
Some music counter parts to it:
- Clair de lune from Debussy performed by the the Philadelphia orchestra
- B-Side of Abbey Road from the Beatles
- God only Knows from the Beach Boys
iDK whats objectively good, all I can say is that the majority of pop artists and funk carioca are trash music
Good taste in music is probably better classic and kinda game changing albums and songs, like most Pink Floyd say, Rolling Stones, Beatles, Hendrix for really famous bands/artists, but it is a bit generic yeah
