    Its the phoniest genre of music ever! And the worst part about the music is - everybody is always in love or falling out of love with someone. Its always about some hot chick or some hot dude, geez! And all the singers are so phony, gawd, see them pose for the camera, pouting their stupid lipstick mouths at ya every damn time, like hey I'm hot, fall down and kill yourself. Gawd, doesn't that stuff make you just wanna puke your guts out. Pls I know most people enjoy it, but if there's at least one person in the damn forums who shares my sentiments about this, I guarantee, I'll hold you in the highest esteem. Really. The guy who invented the stuff should be horse-whipped....at least!

      Well, you must be talking about today's R & B... in that case I'd have to agree... but the roots of R & B go back to the early Motown recordings guys like Bobby "Blue" Bland, and Otis Redding...now THAT was music!

      I like different types of music including RnB. Soul's my favourite. I'm sure there's a RnB song you must have liked at one point. It ain't all mushy.

      What music tickles your fancy, if you don't like RnB? smile

        First and foremost, Rock, then Techno, then Celtic, then Ska, then Naija, then Pop, then Classical music, then Hip hop - real hip hop, none of that Lil Wayne stuff either, then some Jazz, and Soul like Erykah Badu, Desree, and Jill Scott.

          The only R & B singers I can listen to without feeling nauseated are Alicia Keys, Mary J Blige, Lauryn Hill and a few others.

            Gotcha! So you do have some exceptions in RnB. Nice taste in Music but me and you couldn't go clubbing if it was Rock and Techno. Hip hop - Yes, we're talking and Naija - my goodness those girls know how to drop it like its hot. Lol.

      You're talking about the recent stuff.  Anita Baker is good.  I am not into most of it, but I love Anita Baker.

        OK. Thats what I thought you meant. here, we call it hip hop, R&B usally means like, Barry White.
        I like the beat to some of those songs, the lyrics are horrid and most of it is sampled so its not even origional.

          Barry White is just blues. I'm not too hot about blues either. But if I had to pick - i would go with blues any day!

      Alicia Keys is one of the few exceptions to the rule. Lauryn Hill and Mary J Blige, too. There're others. You getting my drift now about the other phonies.

          Yeah, I heard of it. Its supposed to be like an alien documentary of some sort. But I dont think Peter Jackson is directing though. The guy is overbooked.

    To me, the only good R&B is classic Motown from the 60s smile

      REAL R&B is some of the best music ever -

      Think Stevie Ray Vaughan, BB King, Albert King, Howlin Wolf, Buddy Guy, Etta James - I could go on forever.

      But yeah, the new stuff ain't so great

    On billboard, R&B/Hip Hop are one category. Going through the list you can tell which ones are which. Most of the new stuff is "show music" the music that may have a good beat and gets play in clubs and remixed, but the lyrics don't mean very much. Its girls and guys sayin "that's my jam!" and dancing music, not contemplate life "this is so amazing" music. I do like Mary, Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys, etc. But not so much "superman that hoe!" Catchy song and the dance is funny, but you won't catch me listening to it on my ipod.

    I can remember when Rock´n´Roll artists like Chuck Berry were classed as R&B and the music then was nothing like the stuff that is called R&B now.

    I have a friend on this island who wants to produce and record an album of my songs but he said they all have to be in the R&B style! I said well, we have a problem then because I don't have any! lol
