Day 16: Your view on mainstream music
After Justin Bieber, I gave up on mainstream music . I know that there’s a band called One Direction that’s pretty popular at the moment but other than that I don’t know any others and I don’t care. Music has never been as tedious as it is in this day and age.
Not only does everybody like mainstream music, they obsess over it. It is aired hourly by every radio station in the country (the reason why I hate listening to the radio) . The artists are subject to intense scrutiny and observation by millions of teenagers. I don’t like to perpetuate gender stereotypes but these teenagers are usually girls.
I cannot keep up with mainstream music. It is fleeting and meaningless. It all sounds the same or has a generic formula. The lyrics are , for lack of a better word, stupid and usually do not have any sense to them at all. If I were to be assessed on mainstream hits from the past three years , I would fail because I have not been paying any attention at all.
There are musicians who deserve far more recognition but alas, society remains fixated upon these main-streamers who continue to bludgeon the true meaning of music . I’m sorry that this turned into a rant but I have too many feelings about this topic and my OSCE is on Thursday so my levels of stress are currently sky-rocketing.
