Why must I be subjected to your music?

Why is it that the people with the WORST taste in music feel the need to share their bad music with the rest of the world. Someone in the complex has been playing their music unnecessarily loud. I have been subjected to Celine Dion and Meatloaf all morning.

The only reason people do such things is because they hate you. If I were you, I'd call up Couch and have him set their couch on fire.

Wow, I was going to try and be witty or sarcastic, but if you have had to listen to Celine Dion and Meatloaf, there is nothing I can say to you that can worsen or improve the situation. This is what is commonly referred to as a lose/lose proposition.

I noticed that too...
The volume gets exponentially louder as the suckage factor of the tune goes up the Scale '0 Suck.
At least you get Celine D., Here, we get that limp bisket/M & M type stuff. Horrifying.

Hmm...This could be an entertaining option. And we could make S'mores to boot.

My 6 year-old daughter asked me why someone was playing their music so loud. I don't think she enjoyed it much either. The music must be bad if a 6 year-old doesn't like it.

We get that crap, too. However, we are usually only treated to it at traffic signals where we are practically bounced off the road from the huge speakers causing every car around them to vibrate. I think that may be part of their evil plan.

I subject all of my neighbors to my music - Large Advents with both garage doors open = ampitheater. And it runs from Johnny Cash to chill, electronica, Bach, U2, and Miles Davis but a Celine Dion disk has never been in the tray and never will be, athough Glenn Campbell was playing the other night but at least I had decency to close the doors.

Indeed. I fully support it and it should be part of the forum guidelines. Where is Tom when you need him? <looks around for Tom>

You are clearly confusing music with what Celine Dion and Meatloaf produce.

It could be worse. They could have Captain & Tennille's Muskrat Love on infinite loop.

Tom's not here.
However since I have a severe case of loathing for Celine Dion, and believe in my heart of
hearts that Canada should be nuked because of her, I'm willing to permaban anyone who posts
Celine Dion youtube stuff.
all you gotta do is ask. . .
