I just saw this article on UK Msn of 'Marmite Musicians'

Marmite Musicians (http://music.uk.msn.com/photos/photos.aspx?cp-documentid=153520137)

It ha a load of musicians that everybody either loves or hates.
Although i agree with some, Miss Gaga herself was on there for some reason :confused:
Do you think some of these musicians deserve to be on this list??
Discuss!!

I like Florence and Bob Dylan from that list but I don't love them. I just really like them.

I actually agree with the GaGa comment, as much as I like her.

It seems to either be the really deep, More meaningful song lovers, Homphobic crowd followers and Prudish types amoung others...

I know just as many people who hate GaGa. :|

But people are converting! :D

Not so much Bob Dylan :p

Ditto. I've listened to some of their Faith album, plus some of their most well-known singles (Close To Me, Boys Don't Cry) and while I like them, I don't love them.

The Smiths are brilliant, however.

As for GaGa, she's alright. I did like Florence before she became really popular. One of my close friends is obsessed with her, and I can no longer associate You've Got The Love without massive overexposure in TV adverts and my friend banging the table along with the drum beat.

But that isn't her only song. I like Cosmic Love, Howl, and Drumming Song better.

I have to admit though, her songs tend to wear off on me.

Lady GaGa definitely.
I think Beyonce should be on that list, well every artist and band should be on that list, because we all have different tastes in music.

I think Lungs was a brilliant album but advertisers absolutely raped it for music... which made it all kind of novelty for me, especially You've Got The Love.

I remember watching a random documentary on channel four and they used an insturmental version of both Howl and Blinding.. I was like.. wat

Tastes are subjective of course. However, I do have a bit of a problem when a musician becomes far more popular through their look or attitude than through their music. And IMO this is what has happened with Lady Gaga. People are swept away by her charisma and visual style and seem to forget that she hasn't made anything, musically, that hasn't been done before. And of course, that is not necessarily a bad thing - however, the fans seem to believe she is a genius and a pioneer and totally unique, and I completely fail to see how.

Remember this is JUST MY OPINION.

>_>
