No politics today, instead lets talk about the music industry. As you know I do a three for free series of posts on YouTube 7 days a week. The posts consist of the song by the same artist or artists. They are usually from a few years ago. I do Rock, Classic Rock, Oldies, and the Blues. The old music videos are pretty much a group of or individual performing the material with some background stuff going on. The music, though takes center stage. You can understand the words, the harmony is great, and the background is subtle for the most part, unlike today’s music that is more about the show and T and A, what’s T and A you say Tits and Ass. I guess when MTV came around, and music videos became the way to sell an artist, that’s when sex became the selling point. I think good looking guys and girls always sold. I mean the Beatles weren’t about sex the were about the music they just happened to be four good looking guys wit a management team that was willing to spend money. Years later it was proven that when they arrived in New York 200 teenage girls were paid to run at them screaming, later they didn’t have to pay them. I don’t think young men are shelling out a hundred or so dollars to hear Beyonce sing it’ s more about what she is or isn’t wearing. You know I love Rock and Roll but I miss going to the bar and seeing up and coming people such as Janis Ian, Bruce, and the Young Raskels just playing their music, Maybe I’m just old anyhow this is FATS and Antonia saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.
