Considering most people wouldn't admit to enjoying:You think that's nerdy?
I'd respectfully disagree. Ok, video games are nerdy, but jazz? In my experience jazz, while indeed horrendously niche, is frowned upon mainly because jazz listeners are seen as mildly pompous and arrogant about their music preferences (they enjoy "cultured music", you know). People whose attitude to music reflects "connoisseurs"' attitude towards wine: looking down on those with "cheaper" tastes, or even pretending to have more "refined" tastes in order to be able to do so. Whether that's true or not is of course irrelevant.a.) Video game music (especially to a game over two decades old)
c.) Covers of both of the above
Indeed. You'll admit that chiptune disco outnerds jazz chiptune by a mile.Chiptune music would be nerdy for the same reason the stuff I mentioned is: it requires pretty inside knowledge of something made a long time ago that most people wouldn't even know about, much less admit to enjoying.
I remember a particularly egregious example of that with a crazy-ass Italian telemarketer who put out a record revolving around her catchphrase. Google "Wanna Marchi" if you don't care about your ears.There was a run in the 80's when it seemed like every established actor wanted to put out a record.
