Because music can not be judged unbiased, popularity is the best measurement. Not to tell if a song is good or not, but it tells how many people think it's good.

Okay. Seriously. There can be bad music. It's hard to determine a particular threshold of when music is too bad for anyone to like it, but I can easily give you an example of something far beyond that threshold.

I have come up with a new song. It is the same note repeated over and over for ten days. Please don't try to tell me it's not bad because somebody might like it.

Anyway, that's a little extreme, but music that causes irritation in the vast majority of people that hear it could pretty universally be considered bad. Even a person that somehow enjoyed it anyway could still rationally come to the conclusion that it's bad music because of the negative effect it has on everyone else. Once again, bringing popularity into the spotlight.

There is music that I listen to and that I like that I still consider bad music, because it disappointed or annoyed the intended audience or didn't accomplish it's intended purpose. As far as I can tell, the majority of people that watch the anime Lucky Star hate the opening song. Even though I personally like it, I can still see it's terribly unpopular. I therefore judge it bad.

But then again, if it doesn't matter if a song is bad or not to be liked. What does the quality of a song say about it? It then has no meaning anymore, because apparently that is not the reason why music is liked. There are probably alot of songs most people would say they are technically bad, but they still like them. So popularity in that case wouldn't be a measurement for a song to be good.

Yes. We could. We could also communicate via IM, Vent, E-mail... lots of things. Is there something wrong with communicating with our forum?

I don't think we can make the connection between winrar and laziness.

Lesser size, shorter download time, less waiting, more lazy? Or it's a Scottish word.
Today's post brought to you by the letter: "heck".

I meant it more like, we can't guess what is meant by that, since it seems it's some circumstance unique to DR's everyday life currently. Like if I said "glasses and tower". You can't know what it means because I didn't tell.
