Would you have everyone listen to Pinky and Perky then?

LeftOverTurkey · 23/01/2006 17:36

Doesn't depress me, it cheers me up.
I must listen more closely.

expatinscotland · 23/01/2006 17:36

ds says the same as you expat, about coldplay. Told him he doesn't kno the meaning of depressing - he should listen to some Leonard Cohen.

CountessDracula · 23/01/2006 17:38

Coldplay and Keane are just boring

I don't know that other one

madmarchhare · 23/01/2006 17:38

Have you heard Black Box Recorder?, now that is depressing, but great at the same time. Now Coldplay, thats depressing and shite.

expatinscotland · 23/01/2006 17:38

What's really depressing about Coldplay is the number of records they sell.

I had a bf who listened to Leonard Cohen. I dropped him like a hot brick.

K T Tunstall has a silly cocky grin on her face the whole time - how can she be depressing?
Quite like her though.

FrenchGirl · 23/01/2006 17:48

Coldplay is just reaaaalllly boring
I like KT Tunstall though and dd loves dancing to her, so can't be that depressing!
come on expat what do you listen to then?

cathyspam · 23/01/2006 17:48

Dont mind if the lyrics are depressing as long a it has a good tune!

expatinscotland · 23/01/2006 17:49

anorak · 23/01/2006 17:52

I can't believe no one mentioned the Smiths

expatinscotland · 23/01/2006 17:53

It's mellow! Buddha Bar was some famous restaurant and club in Paris.

I listen to a lot of jazz as well.

She is the epitome of cool.
