Re: My rant on today's pop music
I, too, have a difficult time with most of today's pop music. There are a few people/bands out there I quite like, such as Maroon 5, but definitely not many.
I think one of the best new artists in music is Imelda May but she's more rockabilly than pop and doesn't get much attention on this side of the pond. Shame, she's really great.
I'm a child of the 80's (graduated in 85) and find myself turning back towards a lot of that music most of the time. I find it funny how many current songs are sampling that same music. New music isn't even really new anymore...it's just a mixed up regurgitation of better music with some autotuning and (c)rap thrown over the top of it in my opinion. Why ruin a perfectly good song, I say? Just listen to the original!
Just my humble opinion :)
