"Music, makes the people come together..."

by Madonna

I love Music. All different kinds: from pop to country, rock to R&B, I'll pretty much listen to anything. The songs I like best, sometimes I like for their music, their melodies, they lyrics or simply for the souvenirs associated with that particular song.

I am a commuter, music keeps me entertained. It is no wonder that I often hear songs that I must go check the lyrics afterwards. At times, I have a hard time believing that certain songs are actually playing on the radio when they probably should be rated. Other times, the lyrics are so dumb that it's almost a waste of breath. Doesn't mean I won't enjoy it, it actually gives me what to think about.

When I do think about it, I realize that when I was in middle school, where I came from, rap was so cool. It was the new means of expression and everyone felt like they had a chance to be that famous Rapper they saw on TV. Most never made it but you'd be surprise to see some that did and you just don't understand why. Maybe it's about how much rage they had in them...

Anyways, today we do have a lot of beautiful songs in each music style. But there seems to be a new trend of songs coming out across the field where they lyrics are just all about an immature but fun outlook on life. Hit songs such as "Dynamite" by Taio Cruz,  "The Lazy Song" by Bruno Mars, "Tonight Tonight" by Hot Chelle Rae and many more. I love those song because they make you smile, they can get you pumped up for action or whatever it is. 
It's incredible how they just preach the "I'm having fun, no more and you can't stop it because it's what I was born to do".. Probably a better attitude then the aggressive "I'm gonna kill you" Rap songs but hey, what sort of generation are we going to be defined by????


  1. Speaking of Bruno Mars: I was never a fan of Amy Winehouse but I was blown away with his performance of Valerie on the MTV tribute to her.

  2. though i like the oldies as well as new music, rap was never my preference.

  3. When you can't hear the lyrics, don't try to figure them out- just enjoy it as a dance song, you probably don't wanna know what you're listening to :)

  4. I agree that the laid-back devil-may-care attitude some of today's popular music espouses is a lot better than the "I'm gonna kill you" vibe of rap, and it's also preferable to the "I'm gonna kill myself" vibe of the grungy 90's. Who knows, maybe the next generation will have lower rates of violence and depression....

  5. i think this generation is going down on violence but increasing laziness and irresponsibility :)
