Ever Changing Music
With new generations of people comes new types of music. Every couple of decades or so it seems that there is a new style of music being developed out of another. For example rock and roll to heavy metal, disco to rap, so on and so on. Up until today music has been played with real instruments. Quite popular in today's music scene however electronic music is growing faster and faster.
We wanted to get the inside scoop for our readers to see where the music scene is going first hand. According to the print edition around 40 percent of the lyrics in popular music speak about love, romance,sexual behavior and sexual relationships.
With a new wave of electronic music will all these lyrics be faded out? If so what will take their place if anything? It is hard to tell what the future brings in store for music. Perhaps the answer lies in the basis of relationships among music lovers.
The print edition also has a theory that music draws people together. The power of music is that the strong binding power it has to bring people in closer to one another. Bands of early humans helped those who were less musical thrive in being able to listen to music because they were unable to play.
This proves to be true in to-days society these large raves and electronic music concerts are phenomenally huge and bring many people together. There is also another side to these concerts that bring people together. That factor is drugs. There is no doubt that the electronic music would most likely sound a heck of a lot cooler with a distorted hearing influenced by drugs. There is also no doubt that the people creating this music are on drugs as well.
This really has no differ from the past generations where many bands that were popular were being influenced by drugs. We see the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, all the wya up to the founders of modern day rap music
I think that whether or not people stop using instruments or not music will always thrive and people will eventually end up coming back to playing the real instruments.
