Please wake me up when mainstream pop artists begin to write anything worth my time again, until then their media beats and production will not
The worst part is that they don't even write it themselves, but instead hire someone to do it for them as they have absolutely no skills themselves.
it's all so uninteresting and shallow is probably the best word I can think of. There seems to be a notion, especially amongst commercial pop artists
of today, that their content matter has to be rubbish and about dancing and boyfriends and other such teenage girl things. I understand pop has always
been like that, but now more than ever, true artists are finding it harder to make any noise, and it shouldn't be like that, not with the internet
about giving struggling artists a bit of a leg up
What happened to the artists who wrote themselves and more importantly wrote something worth talking about. Maybe I'm just miserable but I don't
want to hear some pleb telling me to get up and dance, dance, dance, dance. Give me something to drink to, something to ponder on, if I drink enough I
might dance later on... without music
Paul Heaton could write rings around every global pop artist I can think of today, while drunk, and riding his bicycle to Australia.
