I've tried in a limited way to see what the present radio 1 / TOTP generation like about run of the mill NOW-music, and for the life of me I cant appreciate the vast majority of it. I hear pale imitations of what was going on in the 60s and 70s and mind-numbing drum machine beats, which seem to totally preclude thinking. I presume the Raves I missed in the 90s may be to blame, and I dont like Rapping. The melodies are not very memorable, and it's years since I've heard anything I was interested in. Occasionally there's a gap in the clouds, like Maisy Gray's voice which is unusual, and the rare pop-song which is sufferable, but I think the Pop medium is burnt out, and am happy to stick to Folk Roots Fusion Jazz and Classical. As a matter of interest the same accusation might be levelled at Modern Jazz, and Modern Classical. I think I was priveleged to grow up in an era, of Childrens Favourites, and The Sixties. There is bound to be a new idea arising musically, but how long we will have to wait is an unknown. Roll on the day.

I don't think we're meant to get it. Every generation wants their own music to express themselves through. They know that anyone over 25 knows nothing about how they feel or what makes them tick because we're all stupid. So why would they possibly want to find any pleasure in sharing the same sort of music as us old farts?
I've learned to go back and re-visit music I would have dismissed out of hand as a youngster and some of what I love now, I would have hated then. That's not just true of music either. Given time they will broaden their outlook and be more encompassing in their attitudes but it's true to say that we all hold a special place in our hearts for the first music we could call "ours".
I'm glad my time for teenage angst was in the late sixties and early seventies, I think there was some great music that came from that era but we also had our fair share of SH**** and my Dad just didn't get it! Tsk!

He asked me if I realised what they were doing. My answer was not correct, and he declared that they were 'masturbating'. I didn't think he knew about that.

Hypothesis:

Suppose those weekly news stories where record companies are cracking down on downloading are complete sham.

Suppose the record companies via their own on-line systems are downloadnng their own stuff (quickly erased) for the phony publicity.

What would be the advantage?

Creat the illusion that the "music" is worth the effort and memory (both in cheap supply).

Maintain an illusion that keeps radio stations from changing formats to news/country, etc.

Each airplay, even of the most abhorrent material, generates revenue.

I know this scenario has seen ink, but the more we suppose, the more
we (taxpayers) can save. In USA, taxpayers underwrite the grammys.

Just a thought.

Interesting hypothesis - but there's a ton of money to be made from copyright infringement lawsuits. It's all about the money, and I believe they are going after people to recoup some of the billions of dollars in revenue they must be losing to copyright infringement.

Many years ago I walked into my grandad's house. He was about 80 at the time (long stiff now)and deaf as a plumb-bob. He had some Oompah-oompah military music cranked on the radio. He was marching up and down the living room with a broom shank over his shoulder. (it's not so wierd, did you never look in the mirror and sing into your hair-brush? ;o)

Anyway, he was a bit embarrased but pointed out that 'his music' was a lot better than 'that shite yer Dad used to listen to" which tweaked my curiosity (ouch!) as I was suffering at the time from my old man's "turn that crap off!" rant concerning a certain Pink Floyd.

"What crap was that Grandad?" I ventured.

"Bloody loud, can't tell what they're singing, blah-blah-blah music" he said. Turns out he my old man was into Swing. That Glen Miller was a rad, hey?

I have heard this stuff before. I think it was my mom who asked how I could listen to crap like "Hard Rain" by Dylan, or "Blowin' in the Wind." Of course, we'd just finished with an era of things like "Flyin' Purple People Eater" and eventually we got into "Kung Fu Fighting". I think every era has produced its share of crap. But musicians have the ability to find the stuff they like, and that is way far cool.

I work with teenagers. I am always surprised when little Johnny likes rap, then two days later comes in saying, "Hey, Mr Murdoch, you should hear this!" Kid hauls out "Summer of '69" by Bryan Adams. We were the same at that age: lookin' for what we liked. I have trust in the kids today. I read what's on the Mudcat, realize we are older now (some of us), and we were just like the kids we see around us thirty, forty, fifty years ago. We turned out OK. I think they will, too.

For 20-30 years now I have been listening to Triple_J (a pop/rock alternative radio station, government owned, trying to provide antidotes to the run-of-the-mill top-40 stuff, although they also have a lot to do with the ABC-TV station's Rage programme which runs from midnight to early morning on Fridays & Saturdays and the Saturday morning show runs on until about 11am with top-40 stuff).


I have been wondering myself, over the last few months, whether I am finally getting old in my taste in music. Let me tell you first that my absolute favourite album is called Leftism by a techno-percussion group called Leftfield. They are brilliant, and the more I listen to it the more complexities I hear in it. The whole thing is based on African polyrhythms. My other absolute favourite album set is the Complete Sacred Choral Music of Vivaldi. Apart from those two I have every type of music in my collection.


But, in the last few months the melodies have almost totally disappeared. There is this talking/rapping rambling - which I cannot understand- I don't know if it is related to my dyslexia, or just that I am more visual than aural. I have said this before in Mudcat that I have a theory that some people like their music mostly based on the music/melody/harmony/arrangements etc (like me) and some people like it mostly based on the lyrics (like my hubby) which for me explains why he really likes Bob Dylan & Leonard Cohen & why I can't stand either of them - well the majority of their stuff - unless someone else sings it/plays it because, for instance, I can't stand LC's 3-note melodies or his singing voice. I'll admit he has improved to some degree in that department over the years.

So, enough of the preamble, I have found lately that where I used to listen to Triple-J rather a lot, now I have to turn it off. Hubby plays it more or less non-stop in the house, and has it as the station of choice on his clock radio alarm, so lying there trying to catch my last half hour of dozing/meditating prior to the mad rush of the day, I find it totally impossible even to think while it is on.

The worst, the absolute worst, is when someone decides that they can "improve" on a fantastically good song with sampling of the original, like the O Brother Where Art Thou song (is it Man of Constant Sorrow?) or Joe Cocker's Marjorine by totally riding roughshod over the melody and arrangement using thumping, non-musical beats. It starts out sounding okay and goes downhill from there.

That is why I now listen to the Classic-FM station because at least there is real music and some complexity to it.

Helen
