The depth of popular music is as shallow as a puddle. Money, sex, drugs, parties. It is the most vapid aspect of human life. There's a reason for this though, it is very easily appealing to people. They literally use a formula to come up with the beats to songs and analyze the lyrics to appeal to bigger markets. Pop music hasn't been art since MJ. It's just a product now, designed for mass consumption.
There are still incredible artists who's talent goes unrecognized. The song is made by a 16 year old kid and IMO he is an incredibly talented artist.

Are you saying that a lot of music that is considered "good" that was made in the 90's wasn't also just as shallow? Guns N' Roses, Sex Pistols, ACDC, among many others sang about sex, women, alcohol, drugs, etc. Again, it's really just opinion, and it's hard to point out when a song is truly bad.
#107 - jukuku (10/07/2013) [-]
And by popular music, I mean POP music, as in the genre. back in the 80's mass marketed music was different. They went out and found bands that were really good but hadn't been discovered. they gave the bands full creative control, they just payed for the equipment, designed a label and marketed it. They gave them the opportunity to be discovered, they were still artists.
#106 - jukuku (10/07/2013) [-]
Lets no try to reduce G'n'R to nothing but sex and drugs. Yes a lot of their songs were about it but even the less meaningful songs had truly amazing musical talent put into it. Their sound was incredible and they did have very meaningful songs, like Civil War.
I don't listen to the sex pistols and I used to listen to ACDC quite a bit, mainly to get myself in the mood for a sports game but other than a few songs, I didn't like them a whole lot. I enjoy their sound but I haven't heard a single ACDC song that has any meaning to it.
#109 - jukuku (10/07/2013) [-]
The only pop singer I can think of that writes their own songs is Kesha. When you don't write your own songs, your voice is auto-tuned and you don't play an instrument, than you are nothing but the pretty face to market to the world. I'm sure they have talent but it sure as hell isn't apparent in their songs. I'm sure they could make their own songs but they don't.
#112 - seymourtets (10/07/2013) [-]
My point stands in Ariana Grande and Kendrick Lamar, take a look at some of their better songs and their talent and creativity is very clear. There always has been talent in the music industry, and there always will be. It just depends on the type of talent and the way you look at it. I can get why people interested in older bands can see these new artists as untalented, but the same can be said of the generation before us, and before them, and so on, probably to the invention of the music industry itself.
#113 - jukuku (10/07/2013) [-]
I like Kendrick Lamar. I'm not talking about them specifically, I am not saying there is zero talent. I am saying that there is a lot of vapid, meaningless songs that are the most popular. And I am not saying they are untalented, I am saying that I see a lot of the more popular singers as having very little depth in the meaning of their songs. Songs that get on the top 10 are mostly party songs.

I've been recording music for years but never have gotten quite the recognition these other people have gotten.
I'm not saying I'm amazing, but at least it's real. I write very personal stuff. I honestly find myself wishing I had an audience to share it with. A group of people who wanted to hear it. It's impossible to get started among your friends and family.
#46 - psychopsychedelic (10/07/2013) [-]
I provide substance. Be honest with me. That's what I probably really need as I'm starting my next project.
#54 - flnonymousfive (10/07/2013) [-]
i'm gettin' down to this. very nice. I'm feeling the instrumentals more than the vocals though just imo. You should try posting a comp of this to the newest uploads. just preface it with some colorful text explanation and rage faces so people don't skip.
good luck dude.
ps, watch the levels on your vocals, they crack sometimes.
#55 - psychopsychedelic (10/07/2013) [-]
I'm not a singer, it's never been my specialty. I'm an instrumentalist (as I guess you can see) and my equipment for vocals is subpar. That's the extent of excuses I can come up with. I tried posting it a while back and it got thumbed down pretty quick.
#58 - flnonymousfive (10/07/2013) [-]
yeah with FJ it's all about presentation... you gotta draw them in slowly, tell them your story, make em relate. let them know you're not just some spammer looking for free advertising. if you just say, "hey guys check out my music" of course they're gonna thumb you down. make a comic about your story, or talk about how people always talk shit about mainstream music but don't give indie music a chance. give them a reason to give you a chance... just advice.
also yeah I'd def focus on your instrumentals as much as possible. you might consider bringing in a vocalist. but yeah keep it up, and don't give up.
#60 - psychopsychedelic (10/07/2013) [-]
I really appreciate the advice! I've thought about bringing in a vocalist but thought it might bury some of the feel to the music, but hey, Clapton did it.
I'll work on a comic I suppose. I don't have much of a story, I just make music because I feel it's the only way to really put up with day to day shit.
#10 - awec (10/07/2013) [-]
I disagree, with music tastes are generally more varied and hence you could give the most moving review of a song and nobody would trust it because chances are they won't agree. With art, we generally trust critics a lot more which is why it is disappointing this fad of minimalism is being encouraged.
#7 - sirhyden (10/07/2013) [-]
But you see, the thing is, what we class as today is what's most popular, not what's the best. There is always good music, but is it in the charts? Being played on the radio? On T.V? No just some stupid spoilt sluts wearing nothing and singing about Bullshit or some hippity hoppity cunt taking nonsens.....

That's not what is going on. People seem to have misunderstood. The government shutting down is just stopped funding the non-essential branches of government for a while until they figure stuff out about their funding. That's why places like the Smithsonian, other museums, zoos, and stuff like that have shut down. The FBI, CIA, etc. are still running.
