The controversy of our times
Lol, either it isn't getting played where I'm listening or I've been forgetting it as soon as it stops playing. It's alright, but it's pretty stripped down of the country conceits without the Cyrus interweaving, isn't it?
I read the title and thought you were talking about maps
It's not about maps?
Apparently well into the 100s of millions of hits. It's pretty sedentary, could throw it on a 10 hour repeat loop and it might be somewhat less than insanemaking once it goes into backbrain mode.
It's about those Radioactive Monkeys downtown. Obviously.
That's what I thought too.
Come on people to quote one random reddit guy "Lil Nas X has done more for country than anyone in the past 10 years." This song is massive.
So massive one some random guy I follow on twitch is live right now with this hilariousness https://www.twitch.tv/odysseyeurobeat
Cah tah tonic.
Imagine actually watching people on twitch
What a horrible name.
, i thought this was a question about maps
Well it's hardly genuine, really it's just a guy wearing the costume of country for the meme. That said, most of chart country is just regular guys pretending to be cowboys anyway so I don't think that disqualifies it. (We forgive Marty Robbins, crooner and idol, doing the same in the fifties.)
Yeah it seems like it's dragging along some others in its wake too. I don't recall seeing much country in the top 20 since 'Body Like a Back Road' was big but at the moment there's 'God's Country' (choon BTW) and 'Whiskey Glasses' and one just outside the top 20 'Beer Never Broke My Heart' that seems to be on an upward path. How much of that is attributable to OTR I don't know but I wouldn't be surprised if a new audience is now giving these tracks a chance.
Do you need more? (And it doesn‘t surprise me that most readers of these forums are not up to date AND are smug about it... )
How hasn't anybody posted the damn song yet.
I liked the parts with the horses.
Well that was 5 minutes of my life wasted.
Far be it from me to police the boundaries of a genre.
Just from reading the OP and knowing vaguely who Lil Nas X is I'm guessing there's a, uh, subtext of racism in the arguments for not allowing his song onto the country charts
Same, came here for a cartography discussion #disappointed
Be the change you wish to see in the world. I for one think this old town road sounds like a lovely road and I don't see why it shouldn't be included in map charts like satnav. My only worry is that the satnav must take into consideration that it's a small road when planning the best route for drivers. At worst this could direct a considerable amount of cars to a road not capable of handling that amount of traffic.
