I wake up every morning to my sister blaring country music while she's preparing for school.

It's either country, or Kesha, Lady Gaga, etc.


I can never win.

not true! I know I sound like a hipster, but only main stream music is doomed. There is so much more music in the world but people don't look and just listen to the radio, yet complain about it.

I agree, it seems like people are just writing music to whatever is popular now, instead of putting thoughts and feelings into their music.

This is my opinion.
1 The people how makes music must show that the love music, not just for the money but to make good music, that is both whit passion and love in the music.
2 if we look back in history, people how made music then did`t do it for the money but because the loved it, just listen to classical music like Bach, Beethoven, Grieg etc.

Consider the following:

Perhaps piracy can be considered a form of advertisement and free promotion. The real money comes from concerts and tours, as well as merchandise. Think about the radio, you are allowed to listen to all of today's pop hits for free, at the cost of enduring commercials. Spotify works the same way. I actually don't see much wrong with today's music industry, financially. It's among the top lines of work to be hiring and it brings in a fair amount of revenue for the country. However, today's music sucks. But that'll change, I'm sure. Music is never definite, nor set in stone. It'll never stay the same way forever.
I make music myself and I'm not worrying about finding work in that field. You don't have to be a pop star to be in love with music and do it for a living.

I just wanted to share my thoughts.

tl;dr piracy's not all bad. There are benfits and drawbacks. Today's music sucks.

Well, think of it this way, why does a band get sponsors? Because they're popular. How do they get popular? They make a name for themselves. How do they make a name for themselves? They advertise, promote themselves, play low-paying, obnoxious gigs so that they can get some exposure to the general public. And this may mean, obviously, that they are not going to be making as much money as they would like. Eventually, after they have cemented themselves as representatives of a genre then sponsers, companies and other groups with $$$ gravitate themselves towards these rising stars.

Have you ever heard the adage, "you gotta spend money to make money"? It applies in the music industry just like everywhere else. Believing that selling music is the sole source of an income for a musician is naive, you're selling yourself. You're selling your image. You become a figurehead for a collective mindset through the music and then you market to other people who share your beliefs.

Example, Green Day actually has a rather lackluster musical presence but the lyrics really reach the angst-ridden, frustrated teenage-young adult market because they're all constantly upset about the seeming never-ending state of disarray. They project that in their music.

I hope I'm making at least a little bit of sense. If not, I have more examples.

tl;dr ya gotta spend money to make money. you're not selling music you're selling yourself and your image.
