Today eye was reading posts from Twitter as eye believed eye have developed a healthy & pletheral timeline to view or shall eye say simply a fair and balanced follow of diversity when it dawned on me this particular question. Are you just saying dhat 4 the attention, for the purpose of being Hollywood, or because U actually experienced it personally?
There read(past tense) a posting which stated an album was the best of all time. This statement made me question the "Y" in my music. "Y" should anyone listen to the musical slyces eye compose or manufacture? Then this next question arose! "Do people have to see me 1st so they can "LISTEN" to my music?
The industry itself has with good cause redeveloped media intake in music,fashion,brand and more. We put or reconnected the entertain and the mint(ment) and meshed it with popular belief as if a populous amount of people believe it, truth shall it be. The facade of strength in numbers has only equated to dollars and lost trust in the nurturing belief, as a new breed of viewer has unfolded over the past 30 years.
What used to be trust worthy news in review has turned into over glamorized opinion radio thru television and guess who started it? Dick Vitale. When views were down in all media the only exciting thing to listen to was a game Dick Vitale was announcing. His zest and zeal and fun with words kept the spark and attention of viewers. Thus being the case as now anyone who deliberates sports and now news or music has become the new media standard,from stocks & trades to late night television soup review which brings me back to a basic common sense. "Do U have to see me to listen?"
Are U Killing music is a question this writer will more than likely turn into a column or book as the need for balanced and fair review is needed more than sales. The dynamics of poverty,education,dreams,hope,despair,ability,fundamental supply & demand, all play part in what types of music have become popular and why. Guess what? It ain't rap music's fault you aren't hearing good music on radio!
Before "Rap" and Hip Hop exploded the Rhythm and Blues genre turned into money over character. Singing groups were being signed on looks and with no talent and became the Industry's formula for success, thus removing the responsibility of an artist's integrity in music. Greed fueled this of course because the group was merely the Fashion model and the Label was the magazine. Who makes the most money? Yes. The magazine makes the most money cause it's selling the entire magazine and not just one page.
Name one group today starting with the 80's who is still together and performing new material and has not changed members or disbanded?
How did giving me what eye needed for my soul turn into placing a band aid on a heart transfer. "Telephone Bill" still to this day rocks and the artist actually plays an instrument. "Giving Him Something He Can Feel" is a chorus backed by lyrics dhat allow the mind to work the imagination without overfueling the lust inside of the word desire.
All this writer is saying is the sign of the times is not only for a season of time but the seeing of time. We owe artists with integrity our deepest gratitude for baring thru our ignorance,our selfishness, and our interpretation of love because a true artist is actually reading to you thru song his God given Soul which as we all can agree is priceless! The music U create or absorb is the rhythm of your hearts mind and with each beat goes another step to life.
