I listen to a lot of 80's tunes, drum and bass, and everything else from 1940 to now if I like it. But oh my god.....lately listening to music from1980-now, it seems like every single song can be put into a couple of catagories:
I hate my ex and I'm bitching about him / her
I'm happy because I'm in love
I'm sad / lonely because we just broke up
RRRRR!! They can seriously stuff a god damn sock in it! I'm not completely sure, but I can swear that the lonely, sad, and angry songs seem way more dominant today than say from 1940-1980. Yeah there's the occasional "you cheated on me and I think you're a (fill in the blank)" type of song, but it just seems like people were more idealistic back then or more hopeful. But to me sometimes it's like music is just a big garbage dump where some singer gets up there just to dump their crap and anger and junk onto their audience or imaginary whoever they're singing to. I really wish I could find more music where they actually try to do some good. Such as making people think about different ways of living or seeing the world or themselves. That's progress right?
