I was just listening to Pandora, and you know what really gets my goat?
Little to no talent ass clowns that drop a pre rendered beat over some silly ass lyrics about “How I love you” “You cheated on me” “You were the one from the moment I saw you.” Or the overly popular “I want to fuck you like this and do that to you with my penis.” What happened to music artists sitting down for lengthy periods of time and actually writing a song? This crap they play on the radio nowadays is just plain sad, every song says the same thing with slightly different words pasted on mass produced electronic drum beats, and emotionless lyrics.
I pity the kids of today that fall head over heels with these overnight sensations like Justin Beiber, Kesha, etc. These artists have no feeling behind their lyrics, no emotion in the way they deliver the lyrics. It seems the only way to become a number one selling artist today is you have to dress like a slut, dance like you’re having sex with a ghost, and look gay as fuck. Seriously if you get your heart broken I don’t think that you’re going to sit down and calmly write a ballad about how sad and pissed off you are, well supposedly sad and pissed off.
The original boy bands, rock, pop, hip hop, and even rap artists of the 90’s had a greater feeling and emotional connection to their lyrics than the artist of today, not just in the way they was written but also in the way they were delivered. Now don’t get me wrong, not all of the music and artists of today are bad. Just a word of advice for current artist and an artist to be, please take time to put some feeling into your music and the way you deliver it. It doesn’t really matter if you’re pissed off, finding love for the first time, having your heart broken, or singing about the joy of your child being born or loss of said child, make us feel your emotions.
Let’s get back to real music and not the mass produced corporate record label shit that we have today. Music is how I express myself. Whether it is Metal, rock, pop, country, Dubstep, rap, or grunge it doesn’t matter but I be damned if my music fails to evoke some sort of real, honest to God, heartfelt reaction from me.
My parents always told me that it’s not exactly what you say but the way you say it, the slightest tone and volume of your voice can make all the difference in how your words are perceived.
