Patrik Sandström Are you talking to me, bro? Because if you think I'm talking in riddles, then you prolly didn't read anything I wrote. LOL, which would be why you thought I was the one objecting to pop music. If not, then forget this post exists.
Ghost Writers should stop making songs for these artist... I would really like to see these artist ACTUALLY come up with something themselves... see how great there music really is... FUCK THE MUSIC INDUSTRY!
Took 7 creative geniuses to come up with that masterpiece of a song. But at least I don't ever hear his music on the radio. Ever. Then again, I'd rather listen to the Biebs than Bruno Mars. "Leave some morphine at my.... my... *sobs uncontrollably* doo-hoo-ooorrrr.. WHY DID YOU LEAVE ME?! Waaahhh...."
You're talking in riddles. To define pop music is exactly what you said. It's bears the meaning of popular music, even if it's from a year ago or even further back, it's still a form of "pop music" other then that it can't be defined. Think about for example Justin Bieber, He "plays" popular music, and on the 70-80's ABBA was pop music even though they play in different genrés. It's simply a short for what people listen to.. Then if you got objections about the music in question then grab a shotgun and do something about it. If you wanna become a pop artist then start playing music people wants to listen to like Rihanna or something. ER DUH.
Caroline Carlyle-price You're asking for us to define pop music. 'Artists that become popular after one year or less' = pop music = crap. Pretty sure ten years ago, none of that music was good in the first year either. So your criteria for 'good artists' makes no sense because it's non-applicable to any generation, let alone this one. ER DUH.
Richard York Seely II That's what I'm saying...the good groups that come out aren't known, aren't broadcasted on any widespread radio, and that is what this picture is criticizing. I for one don't actually listen to the radio anymore because there's so much crap played on there that I prefer to stick to my MP3, old and good musics that are either unknown by the people around me, or have been forgotten. Sadly even good groups sometimes turn too mainstream and commercial...(I personally regret that there isn't a rock/metal radio station in my area, but hey...)
Caroline Carlyle-price www.thesixtyone.com New music is coming from there all the time, and it has it's own community where it is known. I can think of a bunch of alternative bands that come out with new music, but they have been known/have started a while back, in the 2000's. Gotye is my favorite. I don't follow the classical genre much, but Eric Whitacre is one of my favorite living and new composers. His choral pieces are phenomenal. The thing is though, most musicians suck when they join a mainstream record label, because then making music isn't about making music, but making money. So that pop radio station you listen to...well, just expect everything you hear from it to suck ass.
