Rick astley's never gonna give you up is a good song

It's a good song and I don't mind getting rick-roll'ed. People turned this song into a meme and make it like it's a bad thing getting rick-roll'ed by someone on the internet. I am saying this as someone who is 23 years old and appreciating some old songs. No one can change my opinion about this.

Is It Normal?

  • What surprises me about Rick Astley the most is his voice. In the video he's this 20-something summery looking ginger kid, but his voice is so soulful it's like he spent his entire childhood in a gospel choir.

    He can SING man!

  • That's because that song is a mainstream song.

  • Never Gonna Give You Up has a very strong hook, and Astley's voice back then was amazing (it's still pretty damn good).

    It's from a period when Stock Aitken and Waterman were at their peak and churning out loads of catchy pop records that all were immediately recognisable as their work. I was in my early thirties in 1987, and even then there were a lot of people younger than me who detested their style, but you couldn't avoid it if you ever listened to a popular music radio station, and you couldn't stop the damn tunes from playing in a loop in your head once you'd heard them.

    Over-exposure of anything devalues it, and once something becomes a cliché, anyone using it marks themselves as just another sheep following the flock.
