I Listen to Obscure Music

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 127 People

    To People In My Area At Least

    maybe the artists i listen to aren't obscure in other places, but when i put them on, nobody i know has ever heard them.  i think it's because alot of them are either foreign (to the US), or they are in a unique style of music.  or they are just not that wide-spread...

    I Love Off The Beaten Path Music

    I'm definitely a "rock snob", and as such most of what I listen to is obscure. Even when it's music by popular artists it is always things no one else has seemed to ever heard. Like I like The Byrds but in their Gram Parsons era, I love The *** Ponys, Wesley Willis, Harry Nilssen...

    Well, It Feels That Way

    I don't listen to mainstream music much at all. I mostly listen to indie stuff, or alt stuff. And I didn't really think it was that obscure until I tried to explain what I listened to when I was with others.  I got that 'what the frick are you talking about' look...

    Sometimes I feel alone or just not myself and for every mood I feel there is a song for it. Music makes me feel good about myself that no other human being can make feel.
