I agree Alan there is a lot of foreign music,and talking the words on the radio now." screeching" it is not rap.its a row. i think it is trending, to screech. adverts are as bad.woman screeching.the buzz bingo ad,Grrrrr......I can accept a degree of 'pop' music but what I will not listen to are women screaming at me. It seems many do these days and it, unbelievably, is considered worth buying. Equally I am never interested in those, particularly men, who talk at you rather than sing. All that says to me is that they cannot sing!.
Right "lets rock and roll"Rock and Roll...The older generation despised the new music, dances, and styles, sometimes calling rock n' roll "Satan's music."
And before R&R, the blues was called Satan's music...I guess that anything that yielded influence other than the church, was considered Satanic. I have often spoke of the fact that we...(us lot) were the first generation to have our own music. Up to this point, we shared and listened to what our parents listened to. It was a real turning point in the role of youth having influence in the market place, becoming a target of the recording media.Rock and Roll...The older generation despised the new music, dances, and styles, sometimes calling rock n' roll "Satan's music."
Rock n' roll was a main part in the 1950s society, influencing movies, television, and clothing. This new music caused a lot of controversy and turmoil among the different generations during the...1950scultureschaefgen.weebly.com
its all loud electronic backing music now some ,the jokers cant sing. if they were on the own they would be rubbish. At least that is my opinion.Dave,
"we...(us lot) were the first generation to have our own music". I'm not sure that is entirely true because the music of the late 1920s was really what the younger element wanted rather more so than their parents. Their parents were, by and large, much more staid, and as always it is the youngsters - and by that I mean under 30 year olds - that drive the fashions of the day, be it music, literature or fashion. It was, for instance, the youngsters who filled the dance halls of that era.
What the young have had since about 1960 was the easy access to making music - cheap guitars became available, stereo records and the cassettes - and the music was relatively simple to play - very basic chord sequences with no real need to be able to read music. Now the trend is moving away from very simplistic stuff and many of the people making the music are now graduates of music schools. And they are the people that are getting the good well-paid jobs in the music industry. Yes, you can create EDM (electronic dance music) on your computer without being able to read music, but now it is not a case of you being paid to create it, but of you supplying it for free to DJs in order for it to be heard and hopefully someone may think you have a talent there somewhere.
None of the well known clubs in London pay bands, the bands are paying to get heard, and there is scramble in order to be able to have that opportunity. I think it is more of a ratrace now than it has ever been, and very few are able to make a living without having a day job as well. And I'm not talking about jazz, but pop and rock. My apologies for going a bit off-topic.
