white boy like to to to boogie
Or not, in this case. The results of the “Best Music You’ve Heard Today” postings are in for the second floor of the computer science building and the first floor of the fine arts building at UVic. These were in much less obvious places (my fault), so there are far fewer results.
In shocking news, the fine arts people had trouble following the instructions: ‘Soulja Boy’ was written on three lines in a row, with no name or date, and ‘RADIOHEAD’ was scrawled vertically across the whole thing. Well played. The (short) list is below:
[Indie] I’m From Barcelona – Oversleeping
[Hip Hop] Hilltop Hoods – The Nosebleed Section
[Rock] City & Color – Sleeping Sickness
[Indie] The Arcade Fire – Lies
[Rock] Talk Talk – Ascension Day
[Techno] Daft Punk – Around The World / Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger (Live)
[Folk] Paul Simon – Graceland
[Indie] The Shins – Phantomb Limb
[Rock] Cain & Abel – Transient
As you can see, there’s no classical, mostly rock / indie, with a few deviations. This is a really small sample size – I might try to get more non-music school samples next year. I’d also like to point out that there was only one thing that could really be called hip-hop in 63 entries, which surprised me.
