Musical realization

The setting: boyziggy and I are washing dishes and preparing dinner. He suggests putting on some inspiring music to help pass the time. He queues up some U2.

Me: (after a few songs) I think I've finally figured out why I don't like U2. The chords and chord progressions are simply - uninspiring.

Ziggy: Grr

Me: I mean, Moby can get away with doing the same chord over and over again, but when U2 does it, it's just bland. Those people are screaming for Bono, not for the composition or musicianship.

Ziggy: Grr

Me: I'm sorry, I don't mean to be so critical, but I'm really trying to figure out why you like U2.

Ziggy: ...

Me: Oh wait, you like Philip Glass too. Never mind.

Ziggy: GRRR!!!
