EDIT: below I wrote the following in mind of some radio stations housing mainstream music that is popular among my schoolmates, at least. There are radios that play great songs, but this in review of the mainstream radio, mostly. Corrupted, just fine, lacking in variety, WHAT are our radios, exactly? I've avoided the radios for years now, and the music does not seem to grow better, not in morals or quality. It seems to me that the continuous, monotonous songs about rape, getting high and drunk, and cheating can only lead to something bad. As if the lyrics weren't bad enough, the songs that seem to pop up nowadays lack in finesse and musical beauty. Ke$ha's songs are nothing of lyrical genius to begin with, but then some of her songs are distorted past enjoyment, even for their genre. (I do not need to get started on some of the singers that owe their careers to auto-tuning.) What has prompted this kind of music? Is it affecting its listeners? What do certain songs and certain music videos dictate? Now, I'm not ragging on the entire radio, because there are a few songs that are lyrically wholesome and produced with skill, such as Fireflies, Taylor Swift, some Beyonce songs, etc, etc (I'm not a fan entirely of all these artists/songs, but they do maintain some dignity on the radio). If this subject has been discussed before, then I apologize, and it can be dealt with as seen fit. That aside... opinions?
