Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

Well, granted, it's not been a priority. But not because I've actively sought to avoid it but because there's just so much music to absorb and my journey hasn't taken me to all the destinations yet...

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

Tony, I’ve been on the forum long enough to know that you’re seriously and sincerely involved with music in a way that goes beyond simple technicalities and for that reason your posts usually have a...

Re: Musician vs Artist

To quote Mr Spock "Fascinating".
But where did you quote it from? Just curious because it's fantastically written.

(And you know how much I like making the most intricate literary contributions...

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

Not too many subsections though because then it risks labelling the different suggestions in a way that ultimately might discourage people from looking into them. The purpose has to be for each of us...

Re: Musician vs Artist

I guess this is reflective of Tony's earlier post, creating and moving on to the next thing and leaving others to start debating about what was just created.

It's the nature of a forum that all...

OSS, I like how you're making your points from a position of personal sentiment and being completely honest and modest about it. Just like in that other thread.

I did indicate that I was withdrawing from the discussion, but to be clear I wasn't saying "enough is enough". As long as the debate remains civilised who can rightfully say that it should end...

Oldskool, credit to you for trying to formulate some kind of answer. I didn't think you'd actually try because the question was purposely meant to be a frustratingly difficult challenge. But you...

Re: Musician vs Artist

Tony, I like the concise style of your reply which straight away points this thread in the right direction I think.

Reading the definition I think it's clear that by nature the term artist can be...

Re: Gone Too Soon

Seeing that photo, I have no idea who it is.

And then it sets in, it's "Mitch", with that "Mitch" avatar.

So easy to forget the people behind the avatars and the posts.

Real people who...

Time & Space...

I mentioned Time, how could I forget Space? Just shows my own limitations.

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

So I'm incabable of recognising the stellar and timeless music of a partiicular singer or band because I'm not in the "target audience"?

Give me a break.

If music really is outstanding then it...

That's because it was guff.

There's no denying it. Only the better stuff lives on in memory.

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

Re: Our dance band was hired as background music

The musician and their music need to retain a minimum of dignity and integrity, otherwise it becomes a slippery slope down to irrelevance.

Being hired to be ignored certainly sounds like a first...

Welcome to the forum Jimb!

I commend you for making your first appearance on the forum in a very challenging thread.

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

I think that to some degree you're confusing "needs" with "wants".

We may seek to make things easier because we want to, in a very pragmatic sense. But is this really what we always need, in a...

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

No, the fact that I asked the question reveals only that I challenged others to contemplate it within the context of this discussion.

You're right that music should sometimes be considered in...

I have to concede that you make good points, particularly about the unfortunate tendency for humans to become complacent and increasingly reluctant to accept new things.

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

Oh dear, so well written. This is the post I feared. It even uses the word "synthetic". Didn't see that one coming

Wonderful, just wonderful.

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

Nagative.

This is the old worn out argument of "it's a generational thing".

I grew up listening to music that was made in different decades, much of it before I was even born. I listened to...

Re: Our dance band was hired as background music

Well, as always , context is everything. Maybe those uptight people were in fact being calmly attentitive to Larry's band just as they would be with a classical orchestra.

Maybe they were just...
