Last thread was a great success and auto saged
Let's do it again
>times you were given control of the music at parties/ road trips/ gatherings of people
>how they reacted to your /mu/tant power levels
i usually end up putting on the music at events
it goes from fun upbeat party dance music [like i dunno synth pop/hip-hop/etc] and when it hits that point in the night where everyone starts chilling out then i throw on like downtempo stuff
With my friends I have to play hip-hop. I put on Clipse one time and it killed the vibe and they all took the chord from me. I wanted to cry. I was humiliated. I'm not good at riding the wave and building off what the guy before me played. The transition from Love Sosa to Ride Around Shining went awry. There was a girl in the car too. Never made another attempt to this day.

I live in a hipster-centric town so most people will usually play some Outkast, The Strokes, p4k-core, etc.
When I get the cord, I like to keep it pop-ish as to please these semi-plebs, so I'll play some good pop. Like recently I can recall playing Jai Paul, DJ Rashad, Kid Cudi, John Maus, Young Thug, The Fiery Furnaces, and The Savage Young Taterbug.
One time, my buddy was throwing a party and he told me to put together a playlist. I probably got a person to ask about the song on every track that I put on the playlist. This has happened pretty much any time I make a playlist.
Another time, I decided to fuck with some new girls that were hanging with us and play STGSTV, I remember saying "you'll love this" enthusiastically, and I could tell they were immediately put off. I convinced them that the static and noise was supposed to add to the atmosphere and by the time the title track ended and April and the Phantom kicked in they were nodding their heads as if to agree. I feel like once AatP starts getting in to it most people with decent taste will start to get it.
So overall, I've had good experiences with the aux cord. Many times, I'm obligated to play something just to impress new people which I dont mind. My friends are getting better at finding their own music too.
my friends and I are really into pscyhedelics and they're also pretty open-minded, so usually when we hang out (whether taking drugs or not) i put on the music. most of the people are neutral about the music and they don't mind, but my best friend really got into some of the music i showed him. favorite albums of him include deathconsiousness, loveless and hospice (one of his favorites). really love the fact that i can share this with people irl

> Play some Samaris
> They're like "woah dude this is some amazing trippy shit"
i've learned that most can't really deal with the tones and experimentation on Bitter Tea, besides like Borneo. One time I played Nevers while we all were on acid and then they really started to like that track too.
On Blueberry Boat, it's pretty much the same because there is a lot of experimentation dispersed throughout the tracks that puts them off. They also seem to be put off by how the vocal style clashes with the instrumentation at times. Two tracks I know they like are Spaniolated and Wolf Notes.
Gallowsbird's Bark is pretty much the best one to pick songs from because of its immediate accessibility and toned down experimentation along with being less electronic based.
Rehearsing My Choir is overall inaccessible as the spoken word puts everyone off for some reason.
I'm Going Away may also have some good tracks but I don't like that album as much.
Their 2005 EP has a ton of great and accessible tracks also.
>When I get the cord, I like to keep it pop-ish as to please these semi-plebs
i like to imagine that everyone stands around thinking "why does everyone keep playing this pleb pop shit? i better put some pop music on to keep them happy"
nice trips. lemme share.

I've gotten threatened plenty of times for changing the music. Kinda had them vibing to FRIENDZONE once. Really love to put on Folk Punk. but the shortys aint tryna hear dat so I get shut down pretty quickly.
The best experience I ever had with this was when all my friends came over and got stoned. I put on Un Chien Andalusia. Then I put on Siouxsie and the Banshees' Hyæna over it instead of the stock music. They had a blast.
had to drive my two youger brothers to school everyday for two years and slowly turned them on to basic /mu/core and other random stuff. my brother in middle school loves NMH and Built to Spill now. pretty cool
>In car with my dad
>He asks what I've been listening to lately
>I check my phone and tell him to plug it in
>He does so and waits a second before pressing play
>Constructus Corporation - Long Street starts
>About 2 minutes in he turns to me and says;
I don't even consider this music, what is this?
>Beyond confused by the beat
He only listens to pink floyd and opera.
I'm not that surprised but confused he dismissed it as music
eh I worked in the oil fields with them. One Black guy, one Mexican MMA fighter and hipster me. for the most part its a lot of fun but goddamn if I dont spend every second in my room or making excuses to leave the house.
and I'm the only one with a working car so driving an hour outta town and transporting drugs is kinda getting sketchy for me.
lol not in my situation because i've experimented with so many genres and considerably less pop-oriented songs and they dont get nearly as much love or interest from most people. But when I'm around my buddies and cooler people we all throw on whatever and there are no complaints.
>At an international party at uni in Sweden
>tired of shit music, and my friend who was hosting the party had fucking annoying passive-aggressive corridor-mates
>a buddy has control of the music finally
>"Hey we should clear out this whole common room."
>play this one ridiculous speedranch track
>whole room clears out
