Re: My rant on today's pop music
It isn't just you.
Im younger than you and can't stand it.
Just because there is a danceable beat, some really easy synth line, and using autotune to change the pitch of the "vocalist" doesn't mean I like it.
The songs don't give me the same emotional rush as say "last" by nin , or even "freedom" by ratm.
It seems like putting a statement in the music, or writing songs that touch you emotionally, all that is aside. The only point is that it has a "good beat and you can dance to it."
I play a game. I try to count the amount of songs that have a dance beat and/or autotune on the radio at any given time. Most of the time in ten minutes time I hear more than five songs with this formula.
It is all crap.
I like pop music. Not what is passed off as such today.
