I was listening to Beyonce's latest single the other day, it was on TMF. It's a crap song and her vocals were awful. I've been thinking a lot lately about what makes some artists who frankly churn out shite music, so inexplicably popular. For instance:

Beyonce
McFly
Take That (that latest song was worse than dull)
Jessica Simpson
etc.

Songs that are SO BAD, I actually want to turn off the radio. I would rather sit in silence for 3 mins than endure their crap, and yet they top the singles charts week after week. Is it not testament to the decay of society that such unbridled tripe can be classed as Popular Music?

Popular Music by definition the cream of all music genres, yet in practice the dirge, the scum, the very stinking underbelly that is signal of the fall of society into petty commercialism and materialism. It makes me sick.

Pop Idol, American Idol etc are the worst. I cannot stand it. They take supposedly the best singers and performers and then popularize them through the facade of reality TV, then recycle some tired old cover so the winner can leap to number 1 at Christmas. And yet despite the fact the winners are always beautiful and good looking they are bereft of any real talent or creativity, because inevitably they have lived such pampered shallow lives that the requisite angst to shape a good songwriter is missing from them.

Am I right?

Something should be done.

testament to the decay of society? Your whole argument just went down the drain. If you don't like it, don't listen to it. Deal.

cos they appeal to lots of people who don't want to take music too seriously, they are easy to listen to and their record companys spend s**tloads of fmoney promoting them and they're in league with the 'pop' radio stations and music channels

I'm sick of these threads, and everyone thinking their opinion is the only valid one.

Bottom line, NO. You aren't right.

Nothing should be done. Many people like this music whether you like it or not. Nothing will be changed because someone thinks they can change what's popular. They make a shitload of money, they have enormous fanbases, so they'll be staying.

WTF?!

Xero mate you're missing the point of a forum, the pit is supposed to be a free area where you can voice opinions and beliefs. A place for free thought, what is this the ****ing thought police?

If you don't like what I said respond, or press back. Don't report it, why report?

I don't like what he said so I'm telling, is that the attitude?

Erm, yes.

The only reason its popular is because the artists are led by what record companies tell them and it is overhyped
music should be personal but any music that follows closely to something to the point that 1 artist is barely distinguishable from another can be easily hyped. look at emo bands, rappers etc. some of the songs are good but they get the opportunities to hit the mainstream because they are all the same.

Does your opinion really merit it's own thread? Not really... you could've posted your rant in one of the zillion other "OMG music today sucks" threads.

Work as a team, then you might save the music industry... your current methods don't seem to be working.

Just so you know, I agree... a lot of pop music blows. I didn't report you because of your opinion.

Well Xero I see your point.

For the record didn't say music today sucks. I said Beyonce can't sing very well. It hurts my ears. Anyway.
