ramblings of a really ticked off music nerd.
You know what really ticks me off? BAD FREAKING MUSIC.
I know, I know – ‘each to their own’ right? WRONG! There is such a thing as bad music. Music is an expression; a feeling in the form of sound… not a bloody corporate meat market product. What happened to the musical geniuses we used to have? The Elton Johns, the Bert Janschs, the Billy Joels, the Jeff Buckleys… seriously people, what the heck happened?!?!?! AND DON’T YOU DARE SAY THAT ADELE IS A MUSICAL GENIUS!! Have you ever even heard of Joss Stone? Have you ever bothered to check out Amy Winehouse’s old stuff?!?!
The music industry has been completely commercialised. Nowadays you have all these stupid bands and artists like The Fray, The Script, P!NK, and Kelly Clarkson that don’t write MUSIC – no no, they write products; tangible things you can sell. Their music is shallow and gross. Then there’s another category all together of artists and bands who started out with one sound, and over time as new trends emerged have changed their sound completely so that they can keep making money… you know, losers like Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears, Chris Brown… and quite literally, the list goes on and on.
These days, half of the crap floating around in this sewerage system we call the ‘music industry’ will climax early and be forgotten forever more within a couple of years… one hit wonders? There shouldn’t even be such a thing.
The whole thing is crap. pfft.
