The day the music died
I cannot pinpoint the day or even the year. Maybe it was so gradual that I didn’t even notice until it was too late. Until I started to miss it and yearn for it. Maybe when I realized that all my YouTube music searches were mostly for songs that were not on the ‘hotlist’. Yes, I must face it. Music as I know it, has died.
With its demise, pretenders promoted solely on youthful looks or their flair for the extremes and not their talents, crawled out the woodwork. Their songs are pushed into mainstream by their rabid and deaf fans who have no idea what real music is. Sadly, no genre is safe from this manufactured bubble gum garbage. Reggae music is now music with a hint of reggae. Says so right on the CD, ‘May contain trace of reggae’. In a few years, music will be of a single genre. Take it from me even though it is just my take.
