Why didn’t you cunts tell me about the brilliance that is “Everything I Wanted”?!

By Billie Eilish... it’s fucking AMAZING. It’s atmospheric beyond belief while still having a good beat. An absolute BOP and accomplishment for Billie. Wow. Amazing.

Even her haters must know this is phenomenal.

She doesn't sing, she mumbles. Nobody can understand a fucking word.

When you grow up and are looking for a job, OP, maybe Meredith Grey will hire you to find music for her show, especially those last acts.

by Anonymousreply 212/02/2019

It's ok. I get why some like her, but in reality it's pretty lightweight. And she (like a lot of younger artists) seem to create music that is a pastiche, segments of ideas pasted together, but not fully developed songs. I think kids growing up with music filled with "samples" and laptop software to cut and paste tracks/ideas is perhaps a reason why. Lorde has this same disease, in my humble opinion. But I'm an old fart, so my ears are different from Gen Z ears.

Eilish did grow up in my old neighborhood, Highland Park, so I should cut her some homegirl slack - but she never when to public school ….. so, no.

Gen Z - Billie Eilish

Millennials - Avril Lavigne

Gen X - Fiona Apple

Fiona Apple, however, had a few decent songs. Lavigne and Eilish are just tedious.

by Anonymousreply 1212/02/2019

Avril was never that big post album # 2. So no.

by Anonymousreply 1312/02/2019

Avrils music also was pop rock. Not what Billie is doing.

Billie is big on ambience. Avril was big on skater punks.

r 13 Billie has only had one complete album. Wait and see.

I have a 12 year old niece and she is the one who told me about Billie Eilish some time ago. I listen and liked it.

by Anonymousreply 1612/02/2019

I'm an eldergay who has certainly heard of Eilish, but this is the first time I've heard a song of hers. It is better than I expected. I like that it wasn't a by-the-numbers over the top pop song like most of the current pop songs I hear, but it doesn't seem fully-formed. It feels more like an attitude than a cogent song, but I suppose that is typical of electronica-influenced music. I'm shocked and heartened that something this underproduced song has such mainstream success. I probably won't ever listen to a single one of her songs ever again, but I'm not gonna hate her.

by Anonymousreply 1712/02/2019

We tried to tell you but you always had a sweet roll in your mouth.

by Anonymousreply 1812/02/2019

I don't see anything special about her or her music.

To quote Wolfgang Van Halen when asked to comment about Eilish not knowing who Van Halen is, "Music is supposed to bring us together, not divide us. Listen to what you want and don’t shame others for not knowing what you like.”

Enjoy listening to her, OP.

by Anonymousreply 1912/02/2019

It’s ALL in production. Her brother the producer is the one who deserves the credit. She is just a voice overlay. The songs he wrote and produced are great.

by Anonymousreply 2012/02/2019

OP is on crack. That track is all production (and not very interesting production) - there's nothing there.

Listen to Fiona Apple's hit single, or Suzanne Vega's hit single, or Tracy Chapman's hit single, or Alanis Morissette's hit singles (I could go on), and hear what successful pop music can be when it's done right.

Y'all may not like her, but the Grammy voters certainly seem to.

She swept the top four categories. The only other person to have done this is Christopher Cross in 1981.

And we all know how that career turned out.

LOL, r33. Good point.

I don't get this at all. The song is so dragged out and boring.

She's doing the new Bond movie titles song. That will bring out the haters.

If I had 15 minutes to live, I would play this on repeat since it would make them seem like an eternity.

She hardly sounds like a baby-voiced girl unless its a baby who smokes cigarettes. Im a fan though. And she was wearing a face mask long before the rest of us.

by Anonymousreply 41Last Thursday at 5:07 AM

This song is fucking awful. And it sounds just like Radiohead's Everything In Its Right Place. Not even the production is original.

by Anonymousreply 42Last Thursday at 5:08 AM

I think it's beautiful and the lyrics are very touching. These haters on here probably listen to Celine Dion all day.

Is that the official video???

by Anonymousreply 45Last Thursday at 5:29 AM

R42 I can sort of see the similarities?? Kind of morbid, but both songs would be a good choice to have in the background while dying.

R45 no, it's not. The video is just of Billie driving around in a car.

yeah r47 - I'll just copy and paste what I wrote on the Katy Perry thread:

"B.E. is more of a model, a vibe, her vocals are just window dressing for whichever of her fans want to feel a connection to her or project themselves onto her.

—it's fashion"

That's a lot of what's top-of-the-charts-popular right now, maybe it's a period that's here to stay, maybe not.

She needs to change it up going forward. Her persona and singing style won't last if she keeps doing what she's doing now.

Billie Eilish on her Grammy wins:

“I love the Grammys so much but to be sitting in a room full of your idols and have them lowkey resent you was very upsetting for me and then having those people’s entire fandoms that I’ve been a part of for years, hate me.”

She is underrated, but I have a high tolerance for this sort of thing.

I think Lizzo deserved those Grammy Awards more than Eilish, Lizzo being the better novelty act of the two...

by Anonymousreply 61Last Thursday at 4:43 PM

They're both definitely novelty acts. I can't see any career longevity for either. Hopefully they're saving and investing the money they're making right now.

by Anonymousreply 62Last Thursday at 4:45 PM

I believe B.E. music is the opposite of ASMR clips. ASMR is supposed to give you a pleasant tingling sensation and Billy's music is supposed to make you feel sad and depressed and reaching for the razor blades. I wouldn't be surprised if we find out in the not too distant future that there is a hidden layer of her whispering hidden in all of her songs where she whispers "kill yourself, you miserable fuck! Kill yourself!" on a loop.

by Anonymousreply 66Last Friday at 2:05 AM

What a terrible voice she has. The style is very fashionable at the moment and is emulated by many female singers to varying degrees if success. Totally affected. Pretentious mumbling and lazy articulation.

It's so affected she's impossible to listen to.
