Two words: Get sattelite.
Why? I have mp3
Payola is old news.
You don't think a concert promoter who gives a radio station 100 tickets to see Depeche Mode or Kid Rock is payola? There are all kinds of payola.
Thank goodness for the Internet and Sat Radio.
Maybe, but I can listen to whatever I want whenever I want, my satellite radio doesn't pick for me.
It's old news that people need to be reminded of. And yes, thank goodness for the internet.
All of music? Never. There's plenty of independant music to find, though, regardless of the state of pop music currently.
I would be happy if the non-independant music would at least try to include more talent, instead of more T&A.
I don't think that's too much to ask... but apparently it is.
The mainstream market, specifically the buyers, just have no taste. Play someone an Atmosphere video, then play them a Jessica Simpson video and see which one gets a better reaction. It's all about the image, baby.
Pink has a new song out called "Stupid Girls" and it does an excellent job of summarizing the industry, albeit unintentionally. The song is all about how dumb the pop girls are, how slutty and simple minded they are, and how Pink is different. Yet, if you listen to the song without trying to comprehend the lyrics, what does it sound like? The brilliance in bitching about formularity while being formulaic.
