a response

Yes, Anonymous, it is a bit of a generalization.

BUT, I am an Anglophile when it comes to pop and rock music from the British Isles and I have been reading Q and Mojo (and Select, Vox, etc.) since I was 12 years old.

They feature lots of lists. ALL THE TIME.

And I think, compared to the States, the Brits *seem* to value music more. It's evident in the passion in the writing and the abundance of music publications. We really don't have that here. Also, as I've written about before, Western European audiences (hell, it could be everywhere BUT the U.S., as far as I know) are just so much more enthusiastic than we are when attending a rock show.

I don't know about Iran or India...

Sorry if I offend!

Since when is making lists something to be ashamed of anyway? It's not like you said all Brits love to eat poo. You said they like to make lists. Now those Iranians ... they LOVE to eat poo. Wait. I'm generalising. Oh, and by the way, what is the deal with Brits using "s" instead of "z"? That is so lame.

p.s. this entire response is a joke. Please do not take it seriously. Seriously.
