    Link: Hey You! What Song are you Listening to? - Ty Cullen went to Times Square and asked random people what song they were playing, giving us this great mix of music.

    At first i rejoiced that people have decent music taste but then came the Beoynces and Britneys.. But overall better than expected, all thou try that with teenagers.. I had just awful music taste around ages 15-16 but then i got cured. Brrhhh... I did own Bruce Willis LP and several Bad Boys Blue..

    That was pretty cool actually. I`m kind of surprised at how many people just ignored him.

    I wonder if he had a sign asking the question, it seemed like some people were reading something

    There would have had to be some way of getting their attention. Times Square is full of people trying to sell tickets to comedy shows, Ripley`s Believe it or not, City tour buses, people selling CDs, the churchgoers, etc.. People wear headphones just to avoid all that, then walk around like zombies.

    @dmoltrup

    If you see someone pointing a camera at you asking you a question, not 100% of the people with headphones will ignore you, and as you can see, his success rate was not 100%.

    I dunno about you guys, but if some random person came up to me and asked this, I wouldn`t truthfully tell him I`mlistening to Just Dance..or, more likely for me, Evacuate the Dancefloor. hahahaa.

    This is so cool. I love all kinds of music and I have a lot of guilty pleasures on my Zune. But I would be honest and tell him what I was listening to.

    I must say, I was a little surprised; no classical, no folk/bluegrass/gospel, no showtunes. Other than Sinatra and NPR, it was all loosely sort of pop. (I know, I know...it`s definitely not all pop in the narrow sense and Britney and Korn are 2 very different genres. But pop in a general post Beatles oeuvre sort of way.)

    One guy was listening to The Black Keys, or are they still too mainstream for you?

    So the moral of the story is, New Yorkers listen to a LOT of crap music. This might be worth a damn if he filmed it in New Orleans or Seattle.

    Would like to point out that much of this was not shot in Times Square... Bryant Park and Madison Square Park were very prevalent.

    I found it rather amusing when that one goofy ass muthafawker was listening to "lollipop" by lil` wayne, and also at the predictability of the rastaman.

    @flashpacker: I totally concur. he actually looked like one of my history teachers from high school, Mr. Schagrin. He WAS a total douchebag.
    I got in trouble for calling him a buttknocker. lol

    It`s not that strange. I don`t really know the name of most songs I listen too. Artists yes but name of the songs only some.

    This was a great idea, but I`d be embarrassed to be asked the question as the weirdest song I have to have on my playlist is... "The Nations of the World by Yakko Warner". (I can`t believe I admitted that).
