    Hahaha! I'd be more prone to thinking this is evidence that Americans have no class or taste.:laugh:

    Pop music is frightening. When someone hears a Stevie Wonder song and goes "hey someone remixed Will Smith!" *shudder*

    What I love about hip-hop leads to what I hate about hip-hop and pop music in general... but that can be said about anything, I suppose. Being uneducated about anything, music included, leads you to mediocrity and the common denominator.

    Today's pop music doesn't deserve to get played on any radio station. It takes zero talent to produce, and it certainly takes no talent to "sing."

    Actually, most of the talent goes into production.

    Yeah, pop music's pretty pathetic these days. Isn't it amazing to think that at one time stuff like Elton John was considered "pop"? Compared to modern pop, Elton John's music is like huge expansive classical masterpieces.

    The producers truly are the talented ones, but even at that, they're not THAT talented. Here's how you write the average pop song these days: come up with a halfway decent little keyboard riff, no longer than 10 seconds long. Put a drum beat below it and repeat for about 3 minutes. Oh, and make sure you've got Pro Tools open so you can do a little tone adjustment on the vocals.

    And, meanwhile, the real MUSICmakers out there are barely scraping by because the five pop stars that are actually on the radio need to be replayed 50000 times a day.

    :finger: radio
    :finger: MTV
    :finger: all the losers who are buying this music and supporting this garbage.

    Seems like I make these rants fairly often, huh?

    We should talk more often :)

    It's incredible the number of artists who use vocal correctors these days...

    Agreed... but since they all sound the same, they all must be doing the exact same thing in every song, which involves very little talent.
