Top 40 music these days just drives me crazy. Where did all the good music go?
Now I’m not saying that there isnt good radio music out there. I am totally one of those people that you see singing their heart out in their car listening to their radio and thinking that no-one can hear them. But most of the time, I am just saddend to see the direction music is taking these days.
There is this show called ‘The rise and rise of…’ talking about musicians and their passions for music, and really fighting for what they believe. Music as an art needs more of these people. That is the way, that we can get back to top40 music that will actually change your life. Not just a ‘thump thump thump’ and a chorus that takes up 90% of the song, but real stories and melodies. Do you think the greats from the 50’s would applaud the creativity of the top 40 musicians today? I feel that all this technology to help create music has somehow just made music dull.
I am going to be honest here, I’ve never had any formal teaching on guitar and I am teaching myself piano and am likely doing it wrong. But being creative is in my blood and its all I ever think about. I cant help it, its just who I am and I want to help inspire and encourage people to step up and start living a life that means something. Will you join me on this journey to create a more inspiring world?
Lets turn the world back into something that excites you and moves nations. Do me a favor and let me know if my music is turning into a wash of top 40 drivel alright? Thats not the direction I want to go.
