Being a huge music fan, even though I don't own an Ipod or anything like that (yet) I feel that music is getting poorer and poorer. Music is now becoming, not music at all. A lot of people nowadays are just following the charts rather than truly listening to something that maybe isn't as popular but means more to them than what the main stream did.
A lot of music nowadays seems to have no meaning in it. In the music and the lyrics. A lot of the time I feel that way too many bands and artists make music just for the hell of it rather than having a purpose. They are making music just to have made music and most probably for the popularity and the money rather than the music itself and the feeling and meaning the music should have.
Music should have great meaning to it rather than something completly worthless. Something that means a great deal to you and you can communicate with the song. Obviously the music itself should sound good but it should also make you feel good. Music is a key to make you feel certain emotions and feelings and too much music nowadays does nothing like that at all.
Not only that but music is becoming more simplistic. Rather than proper musical and complex pieces, some songs nowadays actually consist of 3 notes. It's quite sad really. I would like to balance this injustice but I can't really do much about it. But this is what I feel towards this subject and I wanted to know what you people think about this.
