Today's Annoying Music

Mon Dec 29, 2008 4:58 am

I want to get hold of the person who invented this "clapping" backtrack that seems to be in every "song" these days and subject them to a slow painful torture. I spent 13 hours on the road yesterday and eventually it seemed that all that was coming out of the radio was this damned clapping sound!

One example....

This group is terrible too. I don't get how any Disney artists can be so popular.

And they filmed that on Mary too. Travesty.

Modern "Music" is mostly dead. No one has soul these days. It's all "what will sell". It's rather telling of my generation methinks...

Perhaps, but with the internet and ability for artists to publish their music cheaply on the web it is possible for artists who still care about the music to get their music out there to an audience.

I haven't listened to the radio for almost 4yrs and there is still plenty to keep me occupied. I listen to podcasts and burn CDs to listen to in the car. Today's popular music is frankly horrible and has been for some time.

Most of the popular music out there is formulaic shite and I can't stand listening to it. Fortunately my wife likes the music I listen  Smile

I can't remember what the machine is called, but it alters the pitch of signer's voice. The first time I heard it was in Cher's song "Believe" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bTREzJL83A but it seems it's everywhere now.

The Daft Punk style of electric voice audio is one thing, but this silly trend of altering a singer's voice is really, really annoying. Kanye West, "Love Lockdown" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yc3O7Ku_Bo is an example.
