I'm a rap fan. I don't come across like one, don't dress or act like a stereotypical one but my love of the spoken word is often sated by the cleverer rappers.

I don't know if I've mentioned Watsky before but check him out on Youtube - his rap over Pumped Up Kicks has rendered the chart version unlistenable for me!!

BUT....... that's not the track I'm hooked on at the moment. If, like me, you feel lyrics, seek out meaning and love the genuine side of music then check this guy - Dumbfoundead. He's just getting a real rep on Youtube and going viral with this track, Are We There Yet -700k views and counting!!! It tells the story of his mother's journey to enable them to live in the US, his uncertainties about love and the way his life is geared around his music. I absolutely love it. It's not hardcore stuff, has a great flow and just check it out - you might just like it :)

(And if you do love it, check out Watsky, Dumbfoundead and Intuition on this new Watsky track - it's awesomesauce! A New Kind Of Sexy)

I really don't know why I'm doing this but hey, I had fun laughing at my own iTunes attempts to embarrass me in front of the world. So here goes - and if anyone gets most of these without googlin' I'll be very, very surprised as they range from obscure to sad and back again and I'd be more worried about their knowledge of bad music than my bad music fetish!

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Strike through the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly.
Step 4: For those who are guessing -- looking the lyrics up on a search engine is CHEATING!
Step 5: If you like the game post your own.

Stolen from the awesome [livejournal.com profile] nera_fiore cos I was only talking to someone yesterday about my musical randomness. I don't think a lot of this is going to make any sense but I'll give it a go.
