We don’t have this blog to be politically correct, so I take the liberty of saying: Swedish girls’ taste in music sucks. Too many are saying “I listen to a little bit of everything” when they really mean they listen to the terrible pop channels or Eurovision Contest winners and nominees. Blah.
Okay, Swedish people in general have bad taste, but what an article in Swedish events blog “DN På Sta’n” indicates, is that of all shopkeepers in different clothes shops, guys are the most prominent in complaining or taking control of what music is being played in their shop.
Why? I wish I knew!
A while back before I got work as a graphics and web designer, I used to work at 7-Eleven. All 7-Eleven stores have a contract with Swedish radio channel RixFM (which sucks balls, mainly because they plays the same Top 10 tracks over and over again) and must be played during all 24 opening hours. I, of course, always brought my iPod with me, to many customer’s delight. Like 7-Eleven, most shops have a deal with a channel, or must play CDs or playlists ordered from “up top”. Weekday, on the other hand, has quite a different approach, and quite different music. From the article mentioned earlier I read “because most of the employees are male” and “guys have demands”. They even have a DJ booth at their store.
C’mon, you girls with strong wills and opinions – teach your girlfriends that there is so much music out there, and when you want something – go ahead and take control! You just might meet a guy with the same taste in music and life
