Re: Creativity Discouraged in Today's Popular Music?
I didn't read all the posts before me, so I apologize if I'm repeating something someone said. I agree very much with what you (the original poster) are saying. I used to be completely down on the radio and still think most of it is (insert negative adjective of choice here). However, my sister likes pop music for its dance factor (I can't dance to save my life, so it doesn't appeal to me for that) so I listen to it with her a lot. One thing that I like to do with all the pop music I hear is to try to find one redeeming quality in each of the songs that I hear. Be it an interesting sample, lick, or what have you. It's kind of interesting to try to do this. Sometimes you can't though. Just a thought, it's a fun challenge sometimes.
