Poppish Sound. Dumbass Mainstream?!

10/28/2011 10:39 AM

I’m not a music guru or something much inclined into (though I’m trying to aspire to be a lyricist for some time). But ever since the new artists showed up on gigs, new songs airing over CDs, MP3 players, and radios, there is one thing I asked over my mind for some time: the music is evolving, but is this the one that I should listen? Take, for instance, the rock genre. From underground, it went to mainstream slowly but surely, and from one old rock genre, it had gone to different classifications. Progressive, metal, other types of hardcore, a mixture of punk, or pop, or even rap, you name them. The same goes for rap. It went to novelty and hip-hop. But apparently, novelty was always a part of pop music.

Here’s my point as what I also got from an article published at Garage Magazine last January. You hear beats, robotic voices, and even singers who may be just a product of the internet showcase, as some music experts may point out nowadays. Do we hear dumb pop noise?

Honestly, I cannot answer that question; perhaps you can see it for your own. Research and study it at your own risk is always the best way of solving that. As for me, I can say, not totally because the singers who had penetrated the mainstream were somehow the singing champs for their rights and communities. And we do have naturally different perceptions when it comes to singing. We have the critic in ourselves to pick which music is into our ears to whose are not worthy like trash. 

So it’s all up to us. So you may hate the likes of Justin Bieber or Rebecca Black ‘cause if you find his voice irritating or hate the noise of rockstars or even tell rappers whom songs sound like those jeepney-playing shits that “you suck” with your middle finger flashing at them. Still, hey, I’m telling you that they made it there with at least one or few people believing that they are good in that phase. So there’s nothing that you can do. Try to make your music then.
