This made me feel good, as not only do I know who the Lumineers are, I like them. I felt even better when Hot Guy asked me who they were.
But then we had this conversation* while watching them.
Hot Guy: I think I like them.
Me: I know, right? They actually play real instruments and everything.
Hot Guy: And they're really singing, not repeating the same phrase over and over with Auto-tune.
Me: Why does so much of today's music suck?
Hot Guy: It's more about branding than musicality. . .
Me: Oh my God, didn't people say that about the '80's? I think I said that about the '80's, even though I still liked the music. Does this mean I'm officially old? Because I think Madonna could take Katy Perry in a fight or a talent competition. But then again, I'm pretty sure that Pink could kill Cyndi Lauper. The Lumineers are probably more talented than Bon Jovi, but I can't see them fighting anybody, let alone a band from Jersey. In fact, Pink's the only badass I can think of who wouldn't be beaten by her past era counterpart. It would be kind of fun to see Tupac come back and beat the shit out of Chris Brown. . .what was I supposed to be talking about?
Hot Guy: Are you going to say anything out loud or did you tune me out and have an inner monologue again?
*This is probably not our exact conversation because I'm so old that I think hip bands are shown on Saturday Night Live so my memory's not what it once was. This is more like our approximate conversation. I think.
