art vs. scene [Jul. 15th, 2006|10:25 pm]


[music |dead or alive - brand new lover]

feel free to voice your opinion.

i believe the kids nowadays have forgot the very purpose of music: self-expression & art. all they do is gather into tiny little circles and listen to only what's in their genre of music. it's pointless. it's become more about fashion rather than music.

i think people should be more open about the kinds of music they are exposed to. why should metal kids only listen to metal? why fight the melody of that catchy gwen stefani song? you become a more well-rounded person by enjoying several kinds of music & many different people.

i also think it creates a better sense of self and you develop your own views & own outlook; it would no longer be a factless opinion that was slipped into your morning dose of from first to last.

what do you think?

Thank God I'm not the only one who thinks like this. I was talking to someone about the band "Bowling For Soup" who's "crappy/pop-punk/poseurs" then I started telling him about how much I love The Clash and he's like: "Wow I never met anyone who like The Clash and Bowling For Soup". But for me, music is music, and if I like the way it sounds, regardless of whether the band is manufactured or indie, I'll still listen to it.
