“Behind the thought process for shitty music”
Most have watched those behind the scenes videos, “the making of videos” where there’s a crew capturing what the other crew is doing and how they are doing it. So I decided to share my thought process before I get down to writing my ridiculously awesome opinions. Gents and ladies I present to you my thought process that resulted into “shitty music”.
I have grown to hate it when I am in the company of my elders and the music topic comes up. It usually starts when “the sharper” elder tries explaining what a particular contemporary song is to the others. When his attempts fail, and they usually do, they all come to the conclusion “the music of young people these days doesn’t make sense”. Look here Old Men and Women of the clans(s), it makes sense to us. I am sure there was a time in your youth where your elders then thought the music you are praising now was shitty. So let us be, let us enjoy or shitty music with pride.
But they have a point, our music is mostly shitty but not all of it is. A good song nowadays can be recorded on a phone, produced on a phone and sent to a media house for airplay from that phone. All that can be done just in a day. If the concept and content is good you will definitely get good feedback. These smart phones have us a lot more connected than we care to admit. Making songs in such innovative ways means one gets to explore and adventure a bit more with different sounds compared to what was available then. So yes, some of it is good but the elderly will still not understand because music has evolved and the sounds have changed. Language has changed too so I understand why most of them complain. The same way I will complain to a Justin Bieber fan that’s in high school.
There is old music that will never get old as long as this bunch of humans is still on earth. But as usual, the songs will fade as we all slowly part from mother earth. Tastes and preferences! There are those too. What sounds good to my ear might sound horrible to yours.
After taken into account all this there is music that is just plain shitty. If a song can’t be danced too, listened to privately, if a song doesn’t put across any relevant message it is simply SHITTY.
