If no one posts anything about this I will promptly remove it.
But I want to know, do you all think that there may be some conspiracies in the music business??
To get to my point, I was driving around today and had the radio on, I was listening to different kinds of music as I tend to do, when I noticed that some music, to put it lightly, sucks. It has no beat, doesn't rhyme, and if you listen to the words; makes no sense at all.
The only reason that I can come up with it being on the radio, is that the Govt. must be using it to send out code to different parts of the world. Like I said this may just be out there and if it is I will promptly erase this post.

If you have seen "Phantom of the opera" (Brian DEPALMA), at the begining, the "hero" is a Pop-music producer who make a pact with the devil...

The music industry makes more money out of cheap, manufactured groups and individuals who they can tie willingly to a contract and who they can control (image, lyric content, personal views) and aim at the younger market.

I personally think its part of a shift that started after the sixties and seventies, when the music was considered to be too influential and subversive. Since then (remember the eighties) the record companies have concentrated more and more on these types of groups to the detriment of real music. It got harder and harder for any real music to get through, get marketed or promoted by the big labels. (Some flourish with independents, but with much less marketing and promotion.) Some of course still make it, through extreme hard work or if there musics just too damn good. What depresses me is how many amazing bands, singers, songwriters and performers will we never get too see because of this crap? It's not as if they all disappeared or that we cannot produce groups to that caliber anymore. They are still out there, people you would have spent 50 quid to see are probably still working in your local McDonalds.

Consider this. The U.K is a producer of some of the greatest music ever heard. In the Sixties you had to sell approx. 300,000 singles to get to number one in the U.K. Now you only have to sell 25,000.
Some will say this is due to the decreasing popularity of the single, which is partly true. It's also because of the decreasing quality of music.
Music is an art form, a personification of human emotion and offers an avenue for ordinary people to get there points across to an audience that they would never otherwise have had any access to.

There are of course those who do not want this.

Which is why the charts are full of this mindless money fuelled drivel.

I agree, I find alot of the new music on the radio to basically suck. There are so many one-hit wonders anymore, much more than in previous years. I also find that alot of these more popular groups really aren't very good at all live. I guess they are doctored up so much in the studio. I would much rather see a less popular band in a smaller venue. Its sort of like sports, the ones that haven't made it yet try so much harder and put on a better show for the most part. There are quite a few of older bands that I would pay good money to see again though.
