OK
I'm gonna say this

Music is international it doesn't matter where it came from as long as it touches you in some way as long as it gets to you you don't even need to understand the language

For example



That concert had the hairs on the back of neck standing up
And yes i did pull

It's late, but this is an awesome song. I love how she stands on a box to make herself look taller.

Americans +1 for this one:

To give the UK people some credit, I'll leave this here...Bono really goes off at around 2:25 into the song.



Beautiful song

You CANNOT compare Amercian vs British music. It's too unfair... British music in all respects is the best that's been produced in music for a long time. The list of geniuses is far too large for me to place here


...and I really meant British...
By the way I'm a musician

Well I like funk, soul, disco and house music all of which is done best by Americans and has influenced British music and culture more than we like to admit.

At the moment neither country seems to be providing anything fresh.

How is playing a synthesizer not playing an instrument? A synthesizer is an instrument!! Then having to program it for a specific sound you want takes some skill indeed. In my opinion its harder for one man to fully program a synthesizer setup with drums, percs, pads, and leads than it is for a four man band with an instrument each.

A single person who creates a track using computers and synths to do everything that would normally take a full band to do is what I would call a composer...

Don't sweat it

They said music was dead when they booed Bob Dylan for playing an electric guitar
It wasn't an instrument apparently

Not seen anyone mention Def Leppard yet.
Made in England and absolutely massive in the US.

I remember that day well, if I am correct

Bono had just heard about this

The Enniskillen bombing




.BBC archive clips tell the story of the Enniskillen bombing on Remembrance Day, 1987. The IRA were responsible for the bomb, which killed 12 and injured 68.

It was a very black time in the UK

Thanks for posting that is a Bono epic moment

Well said.

And I'll add some computer generated bass sounds can penetrate your body and shake your bones like no other instrument can.
I also read computer generated music has no soul, yet, binaural beats and other similar techniques are mostly computer generated and can literally move your soul.

Can't even compare one band to another, from the Black Crows to Tom Petty. Or from Zep, The Stones, and Floyd back around to Credence, The Eagles, Godsmack, Metallica and on and on and on and on and on....




There just aren't enough complementary adjectives to go round.

But if you want a taste of modern day Genius ?



How's that for diversity?

It depends on what we are talking about. I mean, if we say 60s and 70s rock, then I'd be a fool to not acknowledge the great English bands of that era like Pink Floyd and the Beatles. You guys did give us crap like Elton John, too though, so you can please take him back.

However, to broaden things a bit, none of those bands would have been possible without uniquely American inventions such as Blues and Rock and Roll. Not to mention my favorite (favourite
) Jazz. These contributions alone give America a landslide win here.

There's not one or the other for me, I like both!

There's nothing "crap" about Elton John. Apparently you haven't heard many of his songs, may I suggest:

While that may be, that's like saying europeans and africans upon coming to America should have somehow forgotten everything they knew. Early American blues may have had it's roots in the combination of various other cultures, but that doesn't mean other cultures should take credit for it. It's like saying the automobile wasn't really created in America because the scientific and technological knowledge had it's roots in Europe.

Also, what about motown? The English simply have nothing comparable to this music. The English seem to be really good at looking at what Americans are doing, and doing some really great enhancements on them, The English have given us some great music, but it stands that the great American experiment has created many new forms of music, even if the other roots may have been used.
