What's Hapening to Music?
Maybe you are going to read this and think that whatever I'm writing is just gibberish; then again maybe not. So here goes anyway...
I've got to the point where I have been relying on old school or more to the point old music because what is classed as music in today's day and age is bullsh*t (excuse my language).
Seriously though, what is going on in the music industry??
More thought is spent on making sure their faces are plastered with makeup or their chains weighing down their necks than the actual content of the music.
Before I go any further let me just clarify that I do listen to up to date music but I can hardly find a song that sticks in my mind; like the likes of an old school Usher or Whitney Houston(R.I.P) classic. Most of today's trash and yes I am calling it trash, I'm not trying to be disrespectful but that's just what it is, seems to just give me a headache or within 15 seconds of listening to it I completely switch off.
Now the big problem is like most of us do, I turn to music when I'm at my lowest, highest and even when I'm just so so; but due to the lack of heart that's been put into music, I can't say it's touching me at all.
If it's not about how much money, cars, clothes, and hoes, then it's not music nowadays. So this is why I appreciate artists such as Adele, J.cole, Kandi, Acehood, Bow Wow, and I can't think of anymore. I'm not saying that they don't fall into the trap of creating commercialised crap but they tend to put more than 50% into the content of their music every time.
Mostly, I just spoke about the secular genres of music, I must say I am a proud Jamaican and I love my dancehall and reggae not to mention some soca as well. And even so, it seems as though they are running out of things to sing/DJ about. Everyone likes a bit of slackness every now and again and the scale of that slackness varies, but sometimes I must admit; when I sit down and think about it, all dancehall music seems to be nowadays is about how long you can last in the bedroom and how good you are. Yes, I know that people may read this and think 'oh shut up' or something but if you really think about it, it's the truth. On the contrary, I do love my dancehall music and I do enjoy dancing to it, I won't even go into details about what my opinions are on that. Maybe next time.
As for reggae, it is a great contrast from other genres, to me, it's a breath of fresh air and it balances out everything. Reggae is always soulful and something I can let my mind wander to, it gives me great comfort and somehow seems to ease tension.
Again before I leave you all, let me just clarify that these are my opinions and you are willing to disagree or agree. And one more thing, it's funny because the music industry spends so much time coming up with ways of subliminally getting across messages in the attempt to manipulate and corrupt our minds that music it's just a few words on a catchy beat.
That's all for now, until next time.
Note: I've been writing this for quite some time now and only just had the chance to finish it. I know I haven't posted in a while, things have just been really hectic on my end so bare with me. Thank you all for reading my blog and I love you all. God bless. Tanny xx
