for some reason I’m not a huge fan of songs where the artist (usually female, but not always) just uses it as an excuse for a ton of super excessive runs and vibrato.
these songs are usually accompanied by a slow beat, and the music videos usually consist of someone rolling around on a bed in grainy film light.
not saying all of them are bad because they aren’t, but a LOT of them are.
Music can be so much more creative and interesting, and music videos have unlimited potential.
I don’t wanna see someone in lingerie for the 10,000th time.
And TO BE CLEAR: like I said, not all songs like this are bad.
Some artists find really creative and interesting ways to make their music beautiful no matter how it’s made, but lately a lot of people just use a slow beat as an excuse to use three words in a song and call it “artistic” because it’s “old school.” We get it, you’re hot, and you can sing a couple notes.
Takes more than that to make a great musician.
I don’t get settling for mediocrity when you have unlimited resources?? But anyways. (by the way, this is not to say that I’m in ANY way more talented than these people. I’m just frustrated by the amount of crappy music that keeps getting put out and people drinking it in because there’s a big name attached to it.) take some time out and really dig for some good music that has meaning and passion.
