  • Can We Do Something Original?

    Once you hear it, you can't un-hear it. It will be forever with you. Just a warning. It's not a secret that a lot of popular music is unoriginal. In fact, science has proven it: The combinations of notes in pop songs have been losing diversity consistently over the last 50 years. Popular songwriters, producers, and record labels...

      It's all crap, but that's the kind of 'talent' the record labels are signing up.

        All that "woa woa" made me nauseous! Or was it pop music and boys bands?

          lighten up!

          bubble gum music is needed just like the heavy sh*t. I love guilty pleasures where I put them on repeat and just enjoy them connecting somewhere. maybe it's something primal or whatever........but mindless music is part of what I love.

          formula pop can get annoying.......no doubt. but when they get it right and it gets into my brain then I just go with the flow.

          music comes at us on all sorts of levels and from every direction......we connect where we can to feed our needs.

            And those people buying that junk and rap carp is the driving force behind poor music today, its all ear bud music and sex filled videos, crotch grabbing, gangster protest rap. . But I guess you got to have it for music to even be available. I second the "" Threads you'd be better off without section"

              It might be an age thing Mike but there used to be so much variety in pop music but now it all sounds the same and is very gimmick based.

                certainly there will likely never be an age of pop/rock like the 60's and 70's.

                it was a perfect storm of technology, culture, creativity, generations, and world times. and the music had such power it sucked into it so many creative people. and there was a revenue stream to keep them coming.

                today the money and opportunity in music is mostly in performance, since the economics of the distribution does not favor the creative process.....so we are left with a mostly stagnant pop music scene.

                so what do we do to relate to today's music choices?

                I don't really think about it too much and just react to something I hear I like. I'm not taking much time investigating it.

                Really great points Mike! And idealism.

                I'm just not sure about the economics of distribution. I guess everything traces back to Napster and allowing more groups to get notice. No longer did one need a recording contract. So I'm not sure that it has affected the creative process at the roots level but more at the commercial level. But no one has really figured out how to make money from this new world yet because of the internet mentality of why should I have to pay for anything. So in the end, to make money, you still need to be signed to a major record label to make any money.
