- Billie Eye Lash
Is it just me, or is she the most over hyped thing in pop since the last over hyped thing in pop?
Whispery, bedroom produced music by numbers. She cant even think of anything to rhyme with guy, so just repeats guy at the end of every line! Its hardly ground breaking is it.Posted 3 days agotoby1Member

How was your song writing at 17? Appreciate you may not have had a record deal then, but if you did would you have been at your best or would a few years of experience helped?
I don’t really have an opinion, she makes pop music, I’m not really a pop fan. People in the music industry seem to think she has talent, maybe her best days are yet to come. She doesn’t seem to be a negative influence on people so what harm is she doing repeating a word in a song? Far worse songs have been mass sellers, take Simply Red for example …Posted 3 days agojateMember
Not her target demographic here either but I think she is fantastic. Saw her at Leeds Festival and it was one of the highlights of the weekend. And it would be a mistake to dismiss her as “pop” (not that there is anything wrong with pop mind). Her music owes a surprising amount to classic female singers from the 60s. And +1 to DezB’s comments.Posted 3 days agojohndohMember
I always try to steer away from questioning ‘kids’ music as, as stated above, the music we all liked when we were growing up was often derided by our parents (although my mum liked Queen and Iron Maiden \m/ ).
I am going to download all her stuff and listen to it on my commute home tonight.Posted 3 days agobrassneckSubscriber
Streamed it the other week to see what the fuss was about. Rather good I thought, has its own character .. an ennui that seems to draw on a trail of LDR > Lorde > Billie and her own voice. Production is good too, lots of subtlety on headphones. I’ll grab the earlier stuff sometime.
Eldest was asked ‘what’s Dads music?’ by his drum tutor and he said ‘Basically XTC’ which was fair 😀Posted 3 days agowinstonSubscriber
I’ll take Billie Eilish over Ariane Grande any day of the week.
“Production is good too, lots of subtlety on headphones”.
Thats the thing – when I was young my whole house (street….?) knew what music I was into and AC/DC isn’t very subtle. These days I havn’t a clue what my kids are listening to as the whole idea of music coming out of speakers is totally alien to a 2020 teen.Posted 3 days agoballsofcottonwoolMember
She is a star, my kids were watching one of her festival performances on the TV last summer, I’ve rarely seen a performer with such stage presence and control of her audience.
Dave Grohl has compared her to Nirvana. https://www.radiox.co.uk/artists/foo-fighters/dave-grohl-meant-billie-eilish-nirvana-comparison/Posted 3 days ago
Dave Grohl has compared her to Nirvana
Well, he’s compared her popularity to that of Nirvana:
“that she has with her audience is the same thing that was happening with Nirvana in 1991.”
Bit like Lennon saying the Beatles were bigger than Jesus was comparing them to Jesus.
And since when has the bleedin James Bond theme been a measure of anyone’s musical worth?Posted 3 days agov8ninetySubscriber
I like some of her stuff, BUT – don’t you think it’s bloody refreshing to have a singer who’s made it WITHOUT showing young kids the way to success is to cover yourself in fake tan and have your tits and arse hanging out?
I like it when you read a thread and some one says exactly what you’re thinking to sae you the typing.
OP; 10-4, dinosaur 😉Posted 3 days ago
