    that pretty much demonstrates that the concept of mainstream is completely bogus.
    pretty much you're just told what is mainstream.

    hip hop and rnb are not similar

    also what is adelle b/c she is none of that

    Edited:

    so no not at all you can't divide them into categories sorry
    Contemporary RnB nowadays is. You know it to be true.

    There are a handful, who are more straight-up and soulful in their style though:

    Edited:

    It may be a somewhat popular style, but I wouldn't call it main-stream. Look at how Adele took all the
    emmies, or the fact that the billboard consists of Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Rihanna, Adele, Whitney Houston, etc.
    That's TV/media. People who are social listen to a LOT more music than the ones who merely watch whose popular.

    Music has become better I think, there are new bands and artists for everyone if they just look hard enough. I don't care for how hard music is to make now, I only see it as there are more tools now for artists to use creatively.

    I don't get it when people complain that music is too easy to make these days because of new technology. If you're gonna be that anal about it, why don't you just listen to jazz or something? There is more than enough even these days if you look deep enough.

    ahh cmon I was only kidding. the issue with most of facepunch is that they are far too serious.

    I swear if you didn't take music so seriously, you'll learn that everybody is accepting of each others tastes.
    EVEN the extreme ones who like J-Pop and Black Metal.

    Relax, discover something new and don't be a bore.

    This generation makes shit music. I was listening to the radio and the song "Just the Way You Are" by Bruno Mars came on. Afterwards, the radio host said that the song was originally ASSIGNED to Cee Lo Green but he didn't want it so Mars took it. This is the kind of musical world we live in, where some asshat strings together cliche lyrical shit and ASSIGNS it to an artist. What happened to actual emotion and work put into music? There's no emotion or work involved singing a fucking song someone else came up with. It just goes to show how stupid our generation has become and how the
    big corporate assholes know exactly how to fuck us in the asshole and exactly how to appeal to this brainwashed generation with cliche overused lyrics and with the same fucking musical structures over and over and over.

    You think what Bruno Mars does with Cee Lo Green represents all of music in the last 10 years?

    also who cares.

    CP doesn't necessarily have to have a victim, it's just that 99.9% of the time it does. The thing with pedos is that they've been demonized to be horrible no matter what, and I don't think that's the case.

    There is not much I can say, I enjoy hearing drums (real or done by computer) in a fast pace or at least some sort of rythm, most sound produced by any type of guitar I find horrible, I have mixed feelings about vocals, I don't like it when music goes too slow
    that is pretty much what I look for when finding new music and the more 'modern' songs fit these things while the more 'old' songs don't. maybe that clears it up

    Someone mentioned to me a while back of how soul music, being that it descended from gospel, was about putting you in a trance state by voice alone. It's a style that is forever mesmorising to hear.

    You'd like Sly and the Family Stone.

    I do like Sly . My friend showed me There's a Riot going on and I really enjoyed it . I've been digging for good soul music online for years . I've found a lot of good stuff . My teacher at school actually was the co-producer on Stand.

    Huh, how's that even fair?

    So I'm guessing to know artists like Baby Huey, Millie Jackson, Funkadelic and Stevie Wonder?
    What was it like being taught by him?

    He was my teacher for Music Industry 101 or something - it was based around how the business worked and everything . Don Puluse is his name and he's a great man . He worked with Miles Davis too and he had this funny story about him . He said that Miles hated him at first because he had a white-boy afro and Miles was bald . Apparently, Miles was pretty insecure about his hair back then .

    People don't look hard enough but the imposed mainstream is also really shitty

    I mean, the mainstream back then was the good stuff, and then you had the bad stuff and some even better stuff buried. Now you have to dig to get to anything passable.
    That also applies to films and videogames.

    I get a sense that you're happy with what you enjoy now, but are angry at the ones who tell you are inferior because of that.

    I'm not too sure what you look for in music still because you were a little vague. But what I'm sure of is that you aren't up for a change.
