    Default Music as Torture - What would break you?

    After reading this article -
    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/28144557/
    ...I found myself wondering what would "break" me if I were being detained and interrogated at Guantanamo Bay. Here's what came to mind for me-

    1) - Any and all forms of Ranchero music played repeatedly at full volume.
    2) - Any given track by the Offspring played over and over and over for 24 hours straight (KROQ, in other words)
    3) - Gospel.
    4) - Modern Country.
    5) - Kid Rock.

    How about you?
    Fuck.

    So it was Patton?

    It's hard for me too imagine non-stop music driving someone suicidal, but whatever.

    I wouldn't be able to stand some of the more repetitive house I've heard. Or nonstop "reggae" like Slightly Stoopid

    When I was in the Army Reserve, a week went by where I heard no other song than Nickelback's How You Remind Me.

    You'd be surprised just how quickly the edge of your own sanity comes into view.

    i was once in a car as a young girl with someone who's discman was set to repeat "chica-cherry-cola" by savage garden for three fucking hours while she slept with her hand over the goddamned controls, *shudder* that would do it.

    I could deal with just about anything I think. I'd find a reason for why that song was made, and argue with myself over the artistic motives behind what was being played.

    However, i read about another, similar torture that would break me in an instant. They play parts of songs, but never finish them. You never get the payoff. They'd play the build up, but never the climax. You never get to hear a song in the way it's supposed to be heard. That would hurt me. I don't think I could stand to hear music bastardized like that.

    You emphasized Ranchero music a little too much. You should probably go ahead and apologize.

    For some odd reason, my sister was BLASTING this nonstop this morning. I was going slowly insane before I screamed for her to turn it off.

    Related note: anything my little sister listens to is enough to drive me mad. She's also into that stupid "new country" movement (Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, et al) and that music is so obnoxiously idiotic, its enough to make me go on a killing spree.

    Yes, but I'd have sex with all of 'em. Not the Ranchero folks, though.

    I actually think hearing anything I loved too much in this situation might turn it into torture. For example, if they played Daydream Nation while I was in a prison situation, it might wind up being torturous rather than calming, because I always associate that music with a certain place, and hearing it in such an alien and antagonistic environment would be completely disconcerting.

    There's a Girl Talk joke in here somewhere, but I can't seem to find it.

    wesley willis... while it would be funny for the first few minutes, you would break after a while of it... just watch the two clips.

    i got to see the late wesley willis live in 2002 and after around 30 minutes i had to leave, just couldnt take it.
