There are three things in the world that everyone else likes and I don't. My dislike ranges from apathy to disgust, and I feel that I am all alone in the world when people start rhapsodizing over the greatness of the following:
That's right: horror of horrors, I don't like Shakespeare. The plays are good and the sonnets are nice, but I do not see what all the fuss is about. Good is good, but... come on. Is it really that good?? Is it really all that?? Nah. I don't think so, anyway.
2) The Beatles.
No, thanks. Hey Jude is kind of nice. But the song about holding your hand? Ugh... no mas, no mas! I don't like the Beatles. I get that they are good and I get why they are good, but I am not into the Beatles. At all.
3) The Beach Boys.
Wouldn't it be nice if they never, ever made that record? I hate it. Every bar of it. Oh wait! I think there is a bit of instrumental something or other that I don't hate. But good Lord, what is the fuss about? I am not even willing to concede that The Beach Boys are good, as in the case of Shakespeare and The Beatles. The Beach Boys are just not good. The End.
So tell me why I am wrong about these cultural phenomena.
Or tell me what everyone likes that you could do without.
