That is a link that talks about how popular music is driven by how much you hear it, and not by the quality. The more you hear something the more you are likely to like it. This is due to the way people’s brains function. It compares the modern pop world to the Stockholm Syndrome. Corporations are cramming this nonsense down people’s throats.
This is an article about how album sales are at an all-time low. I realize that technology has had an effect, but if one compares todays popular music with popular music in the past, one can’t help but feel quality of the things that are getting the most exposure is also at an all-time low.
In closing, I will quote part of Damien Dempsey’s song Patience:
Well I’ve exchanged the spear and the sword
For words and melody
Oh what a felony
How the record company pushes this McDonalds music
An aural lobotomy
For those who choose it
Corporations pumpin all this money into pop
To keep the real singers far away from the top
So folks are never told what these corporations do
Fuckin up the planet, exploiting me and you
P.S. I love the term McDonalds music!
