We learn why music was better before 1945 | Lilou & John present their new Spotify playlist | Lilou explains why the expression “dyke hair cut” isn’t offensive.

John: I think modern music is no good. What do you think?

Lilou: Well, I’ve become quite picky so I guess I have to agree with you.

John: We are currently creating new playlists on Spotify: music for the road and music for relaxation. It seems most of the music we pick was recorded before 1945. What is it that you like with that music?

Lilou: The sound is pure.

John: You often talk about the vocals?

Lilou: Yeah. They are grown ups’ voices.

John: You mean artists sing like kids nowadays?

Lilou: Yes they do. And I can’t relate to them.

John: Would you say we live in an immature culture perhaps?

Lilou: I haven’t really thought about it like that before, but the more I think about it, I believe we do.

John: How do you look at the music you and I create?

Lilou: I always thought it was too progressive for people, but now I’m starting to think, perhaps it’s too retro instead. People don’t recognize themselves in that pure sound with that grown up vocals.

John: You’re right, women are supposed to sing with high pitched voices, a bit neurotic, like girls, and men are supposed to sing like stereotypical gay men, sometimes referred to as “faggots”. Or can you use that word?

Lilou: Well I wouldn’t use that word but…

John: …Come on, you told your hairdresser not to give you a “dyke cut” a while back.

Lilou: Ha ha, didn’t even know one wasn’t allowed to say that.

John: Perhaps that is why we enjoy the music. My theory is when the Nazis lost in 1945, people got so scared of being anything similar to them, so people tried to go in the opposite direction instead, but did it too much, until everyone became “snowflakes” instead, which isn’t better. What do you think?

Lilou: Well, I’ve never bothered to learn what paths you’re supposed to choose.

John: No you are completely devoid of that kind of thinking. I’ve never met anyone who is so open about his or her beliefs. It’s admirable.

Lilou: To me, dyke hair cut means having short hair, it’s nothing offensive towards dykes, it’s just a description of a hair cut.

John: And when I say we almost only listen to music recorded before 1945 people think we’re “nazis” ha ha.

Lilou: I say, they’re full retards.

John: It’s about the beauty and sincerity. I love all music that comes from the heart. I think we both agree on that.

Lilou: …Is one allowed to say “retard” by the way?

John: Negatory. Luckily we don’t care what such people think.

Lilou: Ah.

John: It’s going to be a great playlist. What shall we call it?

Lilou: How about “Roadcrawler”?

John: Splendid.
