RE: OT: why musicians can't eat -- and why radio is so bad

Title: RE: OT: why musicians can't eat -- and why radio is so bad

c'mon not to make a fuss but <beck><bjork>-out there? there music may seem
off the beaten path but basically their music is pop music w/voice and
musical accompanimment...out where?

** comparitively speaking, yes. particularly bjork, using noise as backing tracks, etc. it 's all relative if you look at what she does compared to destiny's child or sugar ray.

now when an instro makes it on the charts thats when i think people are
actually getting something truly expressive.most people like words in the
songs so they dont have to think too much.

** i don't know about this. there was a whole campaign in l.a. for the "wave" when it first started about people wanting new age music without words so they wouldn't be distracted and be able to get more work done.

telestar,walk dont run,tequila,frankenstein,theme to chariots of fire,herb
alpert,george benson,some of these songs or artists may be way mellow but
they are just a very few instros that made the charts and made people
think.in my humble opinion

** i have a totally different experience of these pieces of music. after about frankenstein on your list, i just hear muzak . . . which i feel is designed to anesthetize. different strokes, i guess.
