..................or is Euro-pop just a genre of music that is just NOT popular in the United States like Punk, R+B, Rap, Rock bands with constipated sounding male singers, and cookie cutter pop princess songs like "Oops... I did it again", "Genie in a bottle" and "Irrestable" (though I personally like the mass produced generic bubble-gum pop. Some of Britney Spear's songs are Euro-pop oriented such as "Stronger" and "Cinderella". All of these come from these Swedes like Max Martin etc. Do they know about something called poetry, creativity, variedness. Thanks to people like John Mayer, Jewel, T.a.t.u. , the White Stripes, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Pink, Avril Lavigne, Heather Nova, Shakira, Norah Jones, Evanscence, Laura Pausini, Alanis Morissette, and Enya (all of which I love) are creative and cool people!
Now wasn't I talking about EURO-POP? Aye. I beleive I was and I think I will get back ON topic! I bet all you have heard "Barbie Girl" by Aqua, "Blue (da ba dee) bY Eiffel 65, and and "Dancing Queen" by ABBA (who led the pack back in 70's; i wasn't around back then)! Now we have T.a.t.u. of Russia, Sylver, Ian van Dahl, 4-Strings, and Dee Dee of Belgium, Rollergirl, Groove Coverage, Blumchen and No Angels of Germany, SMile.dk, and Me& My from Denmark, Solid Base, Ace of Base, Miss Papaya, and Daze of Sweden, and alot more.
Well I think that the best band is: T.a.t.u.. Why? Because they are unique, cool, pretty, talented, and Russian. I have their Russian Cd, and English CD. All of their Russian songs are so amazingly good that I cannot put it into words! I mean if you haven't heard "Prostie Dvizhenya" you are mssing out on a cool Russian song.
Here is somethign weird and T.a.t.u. related. OK. I am sure most of you read my INTRO. It mentions someone named Nick Morgan. Well he is one of my good freinds (not boyfreind). I did a survey of some people at my school and Nick said he would join T.a.t.u. out oall the bands in the world. Well... my art teacher said "The Ramones". Aren't they dead? I said I would join the German POPSTARS group 'No Angels'. I am really P.O.ed that I missed the DDR (Dance Dance Revoluation) activity after school. I am really bad at it though. I was first introduced to it when my school went on a trip to Ocean City, and went to the boardwalks, and I saw these two girls at this console that they had to follow a pattern to a song (which wa sin Japanese?) SO waited for them to finish and decided to give it ago! I was awful, I was panting, sweating and sore! There were cute guys playing it afterwards! So I watched them. Dillion (my other good friend) and I went into a joke store and bought fake eearings. I sprayed his hair red, and he put the two fake earrings on, and he said that he was "a fake punk"! My crush Eric Sobel (The Plushenko lookalike) is afraid of me becuas eI sent him love letters, and a red rose. Maybe I shouldn't have, but I do love him. This poor guy is already shy, and then here I come professing my love to him! He is 6', Jewish, Russia, and PLUSHY lookalike! I stare at him during Physics and he looks away. I am sad that I am being rejected by this guy! Well he wasn't my first crush... I had a crush on my sister's best freind's brother Richie! He wa sooo cool, and his personality is alot like Nick's. Well I'll go away for now!
