Re: My rant on today's pop music
I remember when The Human League came out with their big hit Don't You Want Me back in the early 80's, and it was amazing that all of the instruments were synthesized. Yet the song was fun to sing along with, dance to, and it didn't sound totally fake.
It's sad to think that I prefer to listen to 70's disco music over what passes for pop music this day. At least a lot of the disco had real instruments, even some with full orchestral arrangements. Real brass instruments in pop bands such as Tower of Power, Chicago, Blood Sweat and Tears, and Earth Wind and Fire are a thing of the past.
