I think it may be possible that we have stumbled into an actual conspiracy?
Hear me out:
We have been discussing the profound effects that music has had on us; surely we are not the only ones on the planet, and someone here has already
stated that everybody must feel music in one way or another. Music has become quite an integral part of our lives and has done so without anyone
REALLY noticing it. Just look at how many iPods and other mp3 players are sold in a year. Lots, to be sure, and they only do one thing...
Now, I honestly don't mean to bash the mainstream music industry (although I am often prone to do so) but the music that has been released since...
well, since a long time now, I'd say it has its roots in the '80s but it could be even as far back as the '20s and some might argue it started in
the 1700's or earlier. Music has changed its face, quite plainly. No longer do people look for the meditative style of concentrated playing. People
look instantly for catchiness. Something that will stick in your head like a parasite and keep you humming their tune. This isn't a bad thing of
course not, for catchiness is usually a good thing to have in music, however, I believe, it must to some extent be detrimental when there are SO MANY
sources from which we find ourselves having a song stuck in our heads. It's either clever advertising, or there is a deeper agenda at work here. Why
would they want us to be humming and otherwise have tunes stuck in our heads?
Well, since we have been talking about the effect of music on our brains... If they WERE to try and brainwash us... what would be the most effective
way do you think? Combined with television/music videos the effect would be ten-fold.
Just a thought though, don't take it seriously,
