CAN WE PLEASE BRING BACK GOOD MUSIC?

This generation has fucked up the music game. There’s nothing but shitty music everywhere I turn. And let’s not talk about the rap game because I might blow a casket. Just know I sick of this damn trap music with the same mumbling lyrics that I can barely understand. And before you say I’m too old go fuck yourself. I just like quality music. Something this generation knows nothing about.

Let me put it this way. I can listen to Trap Queen and rap along to the lyrics but at the same time I can pop in Miles Davis and appreciate the complexities of music. I think there needs to be a balance. If not, the music industry will be filled with mediocre artists that can barely sing or dance but are popular among the masses. Yeah I’m talking about Taylor Swift. You can probably say the same thing about Rihanna or Britney Spears but at least I can bump to their music.

Anyways I said all of this to say that if you’re going to listen or promote crappy music at least be fair and showcase some good music as well. I mean R & B seems like it’s a dying breed. The last time R & B was popping was in the 90s and early 2000s. It rare to find any good quality R & B promoted on the radio station. Nope it’s the same 5 songs in steady rotation. One about sex. One about lean. One about credit card scammers. One about the thug life and so on and so forth.

I remember a time when music use to mean something. When the lyrics had a meaning to them. It was deep and thought provoking. Nowadays you can have a good beat and shitty lyrics about how much you love bacon, eggs, and sausages and be a number 1 hit. But I digress.

So before I offend anymore people, I shall leave you with what’s in my playlist at this very moment.  A song that I play on heavy rotation by a duo who I feel don’t get enough love from the people   .

P.S. I’m not a snob and think I know best. Cause believe when I say that I do listen to the bullshit crappy music. And bop along with the lyrics. But at the same time I know that I have some good quality songs on my playlist that will last a generation while the bullshit will go away when the next money making trend comes along.

 

Pay Dearly

by

Johnnyswim

I hope you’re not
Hoping I
Fall to pieces

I’m not losing sleep
I’m not begging please
You won’t find me weeping

Oh can’t you see
See your soul’s ripe for reaping
You picked a fight, but you got a war
Like a fire needs a flood

I want you to pay dearly
For what you stole from me
Say that you wont
I’ll burn down the door
I want it paid to me
It’s that easy…oh…

Woah….
Woah….
Woah….

You lit the spark
Now you’ve been marked
No use in trying
It’s clear to face you’ve wounded grace
Stop your crying
OH…

Oh can’t you see
It’s time you pay the price for buying
A fight you know you can’t finish
It ain’t over till it’s done

I want you to pay dearly
For what you stole from me
Say that you won’t
I’ll burn down the door
I want it paid to me

I want to look in your eyes
See them looking back at mine
All that and more
To settle the score
I want it paid to me
It’s that easy

Oh…..Oh….
Oh…..Oh….
Oh…..Oh….
Oh…..Oh….

I said it once
And now I’ll say it more
When I get you I won’t let you go.

I want you to pay dearly
For what you stole from me
Say that you won’t
I’ll burn down the door
I’ll get it paid to me

I want to look in your eyes
See them looking back at mine
All that and more
To settle the score
I want it paid to me
It’s that easy

Woah…..
Woah…..
Woah…..
It’s that easy.
