That question above ^
After hearing Bridgit Mendler - Ready or not. It forced me to write this post, I was waiting for a video on youtube to load and it came up on an advert.... it burnt what was left of my soul.
What good is, is subjective,
But what i am talking about is how much florider, rhianna, david getta, wiliam (not spelling his name how he wants), pitbull, taylor swift, conor maynard, rita ora, and so on etc is the music charts able to take. Or my ears?
Ed Simons recently said when talking about Swedish house mafia -Don't You Worry Child "this post modern everything's ok attitude is killing interesting dance music, it's an awful awful record, that's all" .. I agree.
In the early 2000's late 90's there was a few years of strange and different chart music, groove armada, daft punk, the avalanches etc
What happened? Is it now because music is downloadable from online stores that it is a throw away commodity; for example you can simply just download and delete a track compared to actually going out buying something physical and having an object you have bought? Therefore the artists have become a throw away commodity therefore they just release terrible music? e.g. Bridgit Mendler - ready or not.... ahhh its bad so bad, but it is pumped on adverts for itunes everywhere....so there fore it will be popular
I have completely different tastes to chart music, we all have different tastes in music and I know i'll probably get shouted down about it by some 13 yr old pop evangelist who likes pitbull even though Im sure he has had a stroke and can only rap out of the corner of his mouth ... but does any one think we will ever get any intelligent music in the charts? I have to admit the recent Dizzee Rascal, Bassline Junkie is not a great tune but its plain and simple and just different therefore its good.
So what is intelligent music? Not florider, rhianna, david getta, wiliam (not spelling his name how he wants), pitbull, taylor swift, conor maynard, rita ora, etc etc etc..
What i have written above makes no sense but blame Bridgit Mendler.. its her fault and also being im related to Simon Cowell on my dads side of the family I'm allowed a rant.... its his fault...
